The Royal CANIN Canine Hepatic Dry Dog Food is more than perfect for dogs with liver issues such as shunts, elevated enzymes and even failures. Generally speaking, copper tends to accumulate in the liver cells and impair their proper functioning. Since this diet contains lower levels of cooper the above mentioned problem is avoided. Ultimately, vegetable proteins are easier to metabolize then animal proteins.
The piebald dachshund is a variety of the breed that is characterized by its unique coat pattern. It is as a result of mating between two dachshunds with the recessive piebald gene. This manifests physically as dark color patches or specks on a white coat. The spots are usually of one color and can either be tan, brown, black or even blue. The gene mutation on piebalds is also associated with pigment-linked health issues. Other than that, this dog is very similar to traditional dachshunds in terms of personality, build and so much more.
