Royal Canin Convalescence Support is a nutritional support diet for dogs and cats for nutritional restoration and convalescence. This is often from such conditions as anorexia, malnutrition, post-surgery or pregnancy, helping to replenish energy reserves and nourish your dog from the inside out. The unique recipe contains a beneficial blend of antioxidants and omega fatty acids to support and protect cells and DNA, whilst acting to strengthen your dog's natural defenses. The omega acids will also support and lubricate joints, aiding mobility and restoring the health and function of internal systems. With high levels of protein to promote complete health and recovery in times of weakness, illness or discomfort.

Available as a wet food in cans or as a powdered food which should be mixed with water to create a complete liquid diet.

CONVALESCENCE SUPPORT is a complete dietetic feed for dogs, formulated to promote nutritional restoration during convalescence. This feed has a high energy density and a high concentration of essential nutrients which are highly digestible.

45 It worked!!
Verified Purchase

By on 16 February 2017

Following recent surgery, my dog was totally off her food (she has never been food orientated anyway). This helped us to get some nourishment into her and, while I cannot say that she was eager for it, at least she ate some each day and now with different medication seems to be on the mend. I will keep this product in the cupboard and add it to the "armoury" of items kept for emergencies (three lurchers and a greyhound and you always get emergencies!!!).

55 Useful Stand-by.
Verified Purchase

By on 30 July 2016

I keep a couple of sachets of the powder formula in the cupboard for any poorly animals. When I've had dogs with conditions which meant they lost weight, this has also been useful to increase the calorific value of their normal diet, by stirring a couple of tablespoonfuls into their regular wet food. Well tolerated and effective. Can also be syringe-fed.

55 Exactly what it says on the tin!
Verified Purchase

By on 4 July 2016

I used this product for severely emaciated dog that needed some careful rearing back to health. Found this product exactly what was needed with no side effects. Would recommend this to anyone feeding a dog with delicate digestion or recovering from illness.

55 My dog loves it.
Verified Purchase

By on 9 March 2016

My old Lurcher, picky at the best of times, went completely off his food while my husband was away for the weekend. He is on a lot of medication & rather frail so although my vet injected his meds, I was concerned by his refusal to eat. I tried offering him a sachet of this food & he wolfed it down! It was amazing! Kept him going till my husband returned home.

55 Worth its weight in gold
Verified Purchase

By on 3 November 2014

It may be expensive, but if you love your pets as much as I do, then it's well worth the money.
When our pet ferrets get older, they don't want the ferret biscuits usually fed and this is when the product comes into its own. We have previously had elderly ferrets living on this product for the last 18 month of their lives and I am convinced that without it, their lives would be much shorter.
I have never yet had a ferret refuse this food so it must be extremely palatable. Also, one of my cats try to scoop it out of the bowl when I'm preparing it, so that confirms to me that it does taste really nice.
