Liquivite makes an ideal weaning food, introducing meat into their diet, but in a familiar liquid form, and therefore helping in the transition to solids. Introduce from 4 weeks of age - see label for feeding directions.
For dogs with chronic renal failure:
Liquivite is suitable for feeding to dogs with chronic renal failure (CRF), its high liquid content delivering the higher levels of hydration necessary for dogs with kidney failure.
Liquivite has only a moderate level of phosphorus, a low level of protein relative to its water content and a higher level of fat to help deliver energy.
For dogs with poor appetite:
Liquivite helps in feeding dogs which have a reduced appetite or may be fussy feeders. Being a soup, it offers variety, a change from the usual canned or dry foods. This can tempt the dog to eat when appetite is poor.
For maintaining liquid intake:
When a dog is seen not to drink very much, Liquivite offers a way of maintaining liquid intake. It may be more acceptable than water and therefore more readily taken.
Liquivite also appeals to the older dog, who is not so easily able to eat solid foods. Elderly dogs find Liquivite easier to eat than canned or dry foods. It can be fed either on its own, as a light meal and also mixed with dry foods, to make them easier to eat.
