Hill's® Prescription Diet® a/d Canine/Feline Critical Care Pet Food
Jump started my Boy!
After emergency abdominal surgery, my Boy could not tolerate eating enough food to get the calories he needed. The DVM prescribed the a/d, to supplement the recommended post op diet (i/d canned/dry). The a/d really 'jump started' his appetite. He obviously liked the flavor, ate it right down! and he did not lose any more weight -- and finally started to gain! Without Hill's Prescription food, I don't think he be here today.

Really gets my 12+ year old standard poodle to eat.
My almost 13 yr old standard poodle dropped approx 10% of his body weight in 6 or so months and had become very weak and lethargic. We still don't really have a diagnosis but we needed to get his weight back up so started adding a few cans of a/d each day and he's gained back a pound in 2 weeks (and, I hope, picks up a few more pounds over the next month or so) and seems more alert. He loves the taste. Only down side (other than the expense, but he's worth it), is the really smelly flatulence he's developed -- again, he's worth it but the smell can be room clearing

This food saved our cat
We adopted our cat Zeus from the Humane Society about nine years ago. He was grown and, as we discovered, older than they thought. Earlier this year he started losing weight, despite eating well. The vet decided we had a geriatric cat and prescribed Hills's. He has gained weight thanks to the nutritional value of the Hills's food and is becoming his old self once again. Thank you Hill's.

Perfect Food for Critical Care
My mom's cat (3 y/o domestic long hair) experienced liver failure and would not/could not eat. She vomited often, had a high fever, and suffered with abdominal pain. She was taken to the vet for treatment and finally recovered enough to come back home. She made it one day, then started experiencing symptoms again. She ended up back in the hospital, and back in liver failure. The poor little thing recuperated again (thankfully), but this time the vet sent her home with this food. She's been doing very well, no symptoms so far, and she eats this like it's the best thing she's ever had in her life!
It really is a life saver. If nothing else, keep a can or three on hand...just in case.
