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.
