Royal Canin Recovery is a specially formulated diet suitable for convalescing dogs and cats. The diet offers nutritional support to pets recovering from periods of illness, stress or weakness, combining high energy ingredients for strength and weight gain. The palatable recipe contains all the essential nutrients needed for health and vitality, whilst encouraging pets with decreased appetite to eat. Ideal for dogs and cats suffering from various health afflictions, including anorexia, malnutrition, post-surgery recovery, tube-feeding, pregnancy or lactation, with a patented blend of vitamins and minerals to encourage recovery and protect and nourish from the inside out.

RECOVERY is a complete dietetic feed for dogs and cats, formulated to promote nutritional restoration during convalescence or in the case of feline hepatic lipidosis. This feed has a high energy density and high concentrations of essential nutrients which are highly digestible.


Feed until restoration is achieved. Administration under veterinary supervision.

Is this a suitable diet for my dog?

Sophie Crease

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Leicestershire, United Kingdom

Would this food be something I could try on my boxer who has liver disease? She has lost a lot of weight and is off her food. I'm struggling to get her to eat which also means I can't always get her to take her supplements I.e. Milk thistle. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • Non-Executive Director

This diet might be very suitable, although if your dog is vomiting there might be more to it than just an appropriate diet. You will need to check this with your vet. Hepatosyl is a good example of a supplement to help the liver.
