Hills clinically-proven A/D prescription diet for dogs and cats has been formulated by veterinarians to aid recovery from certain debilitating conditions, including loss of appetite and surgical convalescence. The diet, available from VioVet, can also aid feline recovery from hepatic lipidosis, a common liver disease believed to be influenced by obesity. Hills prescription diet is not suitable for dogs or cats with fluid-retention related complaints, or for those intolerant of high fat intake or suffering from pancreatitis.

Day 3 - full recommended intake, undiluted.
- For tube feeding blend with 1-2 parts water.

Although not good for my 19yr old with all his ailments, when he is ill and will not eat, open a can of this and I know he will start eating again. Always keep some at home or when we travel
