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?

John Cousins

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.
