Hill's Prescription Diet a/d Canine/Feline nutritional support of pets
For the nutritional support of pets recovering from surgery, illness or injury
Cats and dogs can undergo significant metabolic changes when recovering from surgery, illness or injury.
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 3: Severe 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.)
