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.

  • 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

  • Day 3 Entire daily caloric intake

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.

In some cases, your veterinarian may recommend no transition or a shorter transition time.

  • My dog loves it.

    By on

    My older papillon is very picky and now that she is missing several teeth and needs a special diet due to bladder stones, it's nice to finally find food she likes. Service is great as well.

  • Yum Yum says my cat

    By on

    My cat is older and not doing well health wise. She has gotten extremely finicky and this is the ONLY food she will consistently eat. It's expensive but worth every penny to keep her eating

  • Great urgent care food!

    By on

    This nutrient-packed food is great! My 17 year old has a cancerous mouth lesion and his predominant food intake is via feeding tube. This food whips up well and is easy to pull into the syringe. My kitty also loves to eat this food when his mouth is up to the task. Great urgent care nourishment!

  • Excellent Product for very sick and weak dogs.

    By on

    Gave this food to my dear baby for about 4-5 months. It was a blessing to her as she had cancer and could not swallow to well. The vet prescribed it and my Gipsy loved it. Sadly and still hurting because my baby just passed away two days ago, I donated the last auto ship box received @ 4 weeks ago to the Ridge Veterinary Clinic of Lake Wales, Florida where Dr.Yoder and her whole staff treated and cared for my dear baby with so much love whenever I had to take her there.

  • Eating again

    By on

    This got my (sick) cat eating again, after he had suddenly begun turning up his nose at all of his usual prescription food. I started with a few cans from my veterinarian's office, but am now already halfway through the case I ordered from Chewy.
