Hill's Prescription Diet a/d Canine/Feline Critical Care Canned Dog & Cat Food
Worked great for a very sick kitten.
Our Vet had me try this for a four week 1/2 lb. kitten that was failing to thrive. The Vet gave her 3 days to live. FKS she called it. She said if she could just absorb some of the protein this it would help her.
I would take some add a lil water and get her to lap a lil.
I made it a little thick and pasty. I did this at 1st every 2 hrs. She took a lil more each time. Eventually I made a lil in a tiny bowl and she would lap it up. I went back to vet and got more and she was amazed Keira was still hanging in there. It was a long process at 1st but she made it . It was a long shot but I was willing to try and this was food was great. After 2 months the Vet had me swap her to regular Hills kitten food and she did great. The pic was Keira and her sister after a month on the A/D.

Loved by most finicky kitty
We have a senior citizen who didn't seem at all like a senior until she became very ill lately with kidney disease, an upper respiratory infection and, we subsequently found out, liver cancer.
She has always been my most finicky (she currently weighs 5 pounds), but had stopped eating all food, even fresh chicken, etc.. When the docs found liver cancer, they told us to expect her to last only a few days. They suggested a/d because it is the highest in calories and she could get a lot of nutrition in a small serving.
The first few days, she wouldn't try it. After a couple of days, she ate 1/4 teaspoon. Now, she's eating 1/2 can a day and supplementing it with crunchy food. She is back from the brink of death. She was chasing a golf ball around the house tonight; she hadn't played in two months! This food definitely kept her sustained while she began her return to health. She also takes subcutaneous fluids and used Little Noses Saline nasal drops for her nasal congestion. No one expected her to be as well as she is today; we definitely believe that her a/d helped save her.

This product has great features
Prescription diet really helped a lot when my dog was not feeling well, and could barely eat; it is a syringe-friendly food, very soft and easy to consume for the pet.

Chancey our cat is thriving on this food
Last month our 15 year old tuxedo cat Chancey couldn't eat. Vet couldn't find anything wrong except for a large ulcer under his tongue. So we are force feeding him 4 times a day with Hill's Prescription Diet a/d and Cat-Cal and he is doing great! This food has allowed Chancey to gain weight and grow stronger and give us hope that he will make a full recovery one day. Hill's Prescription Diet a/d was made for situations like Chancey's and we are so glad to have it available to us to save a sweet boy.

My cat ate this when she wouldn't eat anything else
My 14 yr old cat has small cell lymphoma that is progressing. Sometimes she will not eat anything at all. My vet recommended we try this for Lily, the vet said it's very palatable and calorie dense. They suggested we warm it up a little. To my delight and amazement, and Lily's too, she ate it and often looks for more!! I am very happy with this product, it's most certainly lengthened her lide span and I'm very grateful!!!!

Even a picky senior feline likes this...
My 16 1/2 year old had surgery to remove a cancerous growth from side of neck AND 8 teeth removed. She had gone from 10.5 to 7.3 pounds over a 2+ year period and pretty much stopped eating prior to the surgery. Happy to say she has not only recovered from the surgery but is actually regaining her health...1+ pound gained in 2 months. This product is very soft and easy for her to eat, but I do add a little water to make it more soupy. I was warned that it might cause diarrhea and to mix it with a less potent food but that has not been the case. I'm also using chopped chicken, turkey, baby food and kitten food to give her a little variety. Bonus is that Chewy price is about 1/2 of the vet price. Thanks Chewy!

My dog loves this "real" food!
My dog was not eating anything and for long periods of time... The vet offered a teaspoon of this great smelling food and after a very short hesitation, gobbled down the offering and the rest of the can! Wow! That was before her diagnosis of Addisons disease! She is on medication and a mix of a/d and her past favorite kibble. We are delighted to have our super dog back! She can hardly wait until meal time! If you have a dog that is sick with little or no appetite, get your vet to prescribe this! What a miraculous benefit!
