Hills A/D available from VioVet

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.

Feeding Guide

These ranges are a starting point only, because pets' needs vary. The amount to be fed and the length of feeding will vary depending on the medical condition of the patient. Adjust the feeding amount to maintain optimal body weight and divide into 3-6 equal portions, fed throughout the day.

A/d hills science?

Mrs R Robinson

I have a healthy cat, just a picky eater and she has lost 2lb and I wondered if this food would be ok to use to help with a little weight gain?

  • Non-Executive Director

Unexplained weight loss should really be checked out by a vet. Not many cats are so fussy that they refuse their food to the point of losing significant weight. There might be another reason why she does not feel like eating, rather than being fussy. The Hills a/d diet is marvelous for cats recuperating from illness, but should not be needed otherwise. Check with your vet first.
