Many cats seem to dislike A/D. It's consistency is
soupy so it can be syringe/tube fed. In addition it is
hospital food and some cats associate it with being in
the hospital and may have an aversion to it. I would
add small amounts to his regular food gradually
For the Nutritional Management of Pets Recovering From
Serious Illness, Accidents and Surgery Both dogs and
cats can undergo significant changes when faced with a
serious illness, injury or surgery. They may have
trouble maintaining natural defenses and sparing lean
body mass(in other words, they may be losing body
weight from muscle or organ tissue), which can affect
recovery. Prescription Diet� Canine/Feline a/d� has
been specifically formulated by veterinarians to be
fed to dogs or cats with certain debilitating
conditions. These conditions can be affected by the
lack of key nutrients and digestible energy.
