Description

Cats and dogs can undergo significant metabolic changes when recovering from a serious illness, injury or surgery. During these stressful conditions the body is challenged to maintain strong natural defenses and spare lean body mass, which makes it is even more important to feed the right food. Cats and dogs need extra energy and nutrients, in an appetizing form, to encourage the recovery process. At Hill's, nutritionists and veterinarians developed clinical nutrition especially formulated to help dogs and cats in recovering process.

Key Benefits

  • Highly digestible ingredients and extra calories to help during recovery from serious illness, accident and surgery
  • Highly digestible proteins to help wound and tissue healing, preserving lean body mass and promoting a healthy immune system
  • Developed with extra calories and increased level of potassium to help avoid depletion
  • Highly palatable with a soft consistency aids acceptance by inappetant pets and gives flexibility in feeding -- by bowl, spoon, syringe or feeding tube
  • Cats and dogs need extra energy and nutrients to encourage the recovery process and this recipe does just that in an appetizing form

Feeding Instructions

Individual requirements may vary depending on pre-existing nutritional status and medical condition. In patients where normal G.I. function has been compromised by anorexia, a three-day transitional feeding strategy may be necessary.

  • Day One 1/3 of daily caloric intake with 2/3 water dilution
  • Day Two 2/3 of daily caloric intake with 1/3 water dilution
  • Day Three Entire daily caloric intake

Select a feeding schedule based on the following patient criteria:

  • Schedule 1 Cage Rest
  • Schedule 2 Surgery, Sepsis, Cancer, Trauma, Fever, Feline Hepatic Lipidosis
  • Schedule 3Severe Burn, Injury or Head Trauma

The following daily intakes are intended as a guide and should be adjusted as needed to achieve or maintain optimum body weight. Divide into three to six equal daily feedings to minimize gastrointestinal side effects. (1 can = 150 ml.)

Transition Instructions

A gradual transition to a new pet food is important to avoid digestive upset. To transition, mix your pet’s current food with the new food. Over 7 days, gradually decrease the amount of the current pet food while increasing the amount of new pet food. In some cases, your veterinarian may recommend no transition or a shorter transition time.

Hill's Prescription Diet a/d Urgent Care with Chicken Canned Dog & Cat Food is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food for sick or under weight kittens/cats! My kitten has been very sick with a gastrointestinal illness. Our vet wrote a prescription for this food to help him gain back his weight. Our kitten not only loved the food but began to put on weight almost overnight. I highly recommend this food, even though it's pricey and requires a veterinarian prescription. Chewy was very quick to get the prescription filled and delivered to my door. I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you Our vet recommended this food for our elderly cat. It was significantly less expensive buying it from Chewy.com than the vets office. Unfortunately our boy had to be euthanized before we opened the case of food. When I called to arrange a return, the customer service dept was very compassionate and prompt with a response.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. All 4 of my cats LOVE it. I started using the Hill's a/d prescription wet food for my older cat who has a thyroid problem. When my other 3 cats licked her bowl, they preferred it to their wet food. It is easier to give everyone the same food. It really isn't much more expensive than the other wet food my younger 3 were eating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great Cat was ill with cancer and he wouldn't eat regular food. He loved the smell of this and it was easy to thin with water so we could give it to him with a syringe. All the nutritional benefits helped us know he was receiving proper nutrition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver Hills a/d is a great product...I have used it many many times...it is smoothe enough to use it in syringe feeding. I am using it for a cat that has had a very hard life. He has lost every tooth except his 2 bottom canines. This is due to having (stomatitis ) and his immune system being very compromised. Lack of decent nutrition and lack of any veterinary care didn't help this big guy. I add hot water, probiotics and l-lysine to the a/d and he laps it all up. He has gained weight his coat is shiny and is more active.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This food was prescribed as my fur baby has a feeding tube. It's really providing him the nutrition he needs while getting better. Liver Values changed dramatically after only being on this food a week.
