Transition Instructions

We recommend at least a 7-day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet’s digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.

  • Excellent for weight gain

    By on

    This is fantastic. My cat, Lance, was diabetic 2 years ago. After a lot of work and patience, he overcame the diabetes but lost quite a bit of weight in the process. His Dr recommended this Recovery RS to help him gain the weight back because of its high calorie content. It is also grain/gluten free so it won't disrupt his body and cause a glucose flare. It is VERY soft easy for him to eat as he has had most of his teeth removed over time. He has gained nearly all of his weight back (4.5 lbs) in the 4 months since beginning this new diet. I am so happy with his results and will continue to keep Recovery RS in his dietary rotation.

    These "Prescription" diets contain "No Medicine" and therefore should not need Veterinary Approval to purchase. I believe there are "Antii-Trust Lawsuits" against the Manufacturers of the "Prescription Diets" because they should not require a prescription to purchase! It is a waste of time when trying to purchase these particular foods that DO NOT contain any medications.

  • Yummy for my tummy

    By on

    Our dog loves this little can of yum especially because he has to take meds so a spoonful 3 times a day makes the medicine go down with enjoyment & excitement. So he thinks he is getting a special treat ,so takes his pills is easy peasy. + good for him too.

  • So far good!

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Puppies love it & so do the Mommas. It's blended smooth so any size small breed puppy can eat it. It is great mixed in with the regular dog food & soaked with warm water. It blends in very well. My Vet said she likes it better than - & - and it has not given Puppies loose stool. A friend of mine hand raises cleft pallet Bulldog Puppies that people give her to raise, she tried some of this food & got a RX from her Vet so she also can have it shipped right to her home rather than travel 32 miles to the Vet to pick it up.

  • Trying to recover

    By on

    My ragdoll has IBS and has been quite ill. My breeder recommended this product but sadly my sweet Rigley refused to touch it. I didn't try it myself but I assume it doesn't taste very good.

  • Excellent kidney food

    By on

    My 17-year-old grumpy cat Charlie who is the most finicky feline ever really dug into Royal Canin! He's still enjoying it, which is longer than any other brand I've tried. It's soft enough for him to eat it without dragging it out of his bowl onto the floor (don't ask me, he's just started doing this). If your kitty needs kidney prescription food, buy Royal Canin! He loves the dry stuff, too.

    This was the only food my cat would eat while recovering from his ailments. Tube feeding and Royal Canin.

  • Excellent Choice for ailing older cats

    By on

    I actually use this food as a supplemental diet for my 20 yr old that has renal disease. She has a bad front tooth and is too frail and old to get it pulled at this point so when it appears to be hurting her, I assist feed her via syringe with this food. It's a perfect texture for assist feeding and she loves it and it keeps her weight on and keeps her very satisfied. She does also eat on her own but at her age, she tends to be quite picky and to not eat enough calories so this helps out a lot. She doesn't mind...actually I think she quite enjoys getting fed by mommy. She is doing great!

  • Buying a Case of Vet Cat Food

    By on

    I wish I could have bought less than a case of this cat food, as my cat was not expected to live too long because of mouth cancer. I have well over 12 cans left and it is a vet prescribed food/medicine product.
