Hill's® Prescription Diet® a/d® Canine/Feline Critical Care
Great Product for Challenging Pets With Illnesses!
I have used the A/d formula many times in the past. I fed it to my cats who had cancer when they would not eat. I would feed it through a syringe and add water to give them an extra hydration boost. I am now feeding it to my 10 year American eskimo dog who has an autoimmune disorder. She can only open her mouth about 1 1/2 inches and it makes it very difficult for her to eat. But she LOVES the A/D formula and it is soft enough for her to eat comfortably and gives her the nutrition she needed right now. Thanks Hills for a great product!!

picky eater likes taste
My dog is recovering from illness and has had no appetite. I am able to feed him using a syringe. He has always been a picky eater and seems to like the taste. The calorie content was not listed on the sample can the vet gave me so I was investigating this online. I was so excited to see your feeding guide. Thanks, Hills.

This Product was a life saver for my cat
We have been feeding this to my cat. We fed this food to him by hand. We placed it in his mouth. He has gained almost an entire pound in a week and is up and around again. He ate some food on his own today. Hill's is awesome. My cat is my best friend and it means the world to me to see him gaining and being ok again. Thanks Hills!!!

Expensive, but when they're sick, valuable
My dog has been in critical liver failure, and nothing would pique her appetite. This did! She was able to eat this w/o hesitation.( My cat kept trying to eat it, too.) After dropping several pounds, she was finally able to start putting back on some of weight. Since eating caused her a lot of abdominal pain, she wouldn't eat anything on her own--except this.

This food is the only one to keep him from throwing up.
He loves the taste and eats it eagerly. It is the only food that works for him.

My 13 year old Chow Chow stopped eating gradually. She has always been a picky eater but would eat on her own terms. She started even turning her nose up at treats. We took her to the vet and after going to a specialist and many tests we found out she has Cushing's disease. She also has pretty bad arthritis. Normally Cushing's dogs eat a lot but not ours. Anyway we had tried all kinds of dog food, wet and dry and she didn't want any of it. The internist brought in some A/D and she liked it. So we have been feeding her that. I am thankful for it because when your baby won't eat it worries you to death. So if you have a dog that won't eat and is losing weight ask your vet about A/D. It isn't cheap but my baby is worth it. :)

I used this food on my pom after he had two major surgeries. He wouldn't eat anything else. My only issue was that my overweight cat thought this food was for her as well.

best food ever
love this product, our cat is 17 years old and never ate wet food, let alone your product until about a year ago when he got really ill. he was diagnosed with kidney failure and dehydrated. he was in the hospital for more than a week in icu. didnt think he was going to make it. on top of it all he has been diabetic for 5 years. thankfully he survived. while he was sick this is the only food he would eat. now he is home, healthy and loving this food.

helped a lot
Our poor little guy all of a sudden developed a sensitive stomach and was having soft and watery stool. the Vet recommended we switch his diet to hills and gave us a prescription. Within a few days his stool was better and he got back to his old self.

good taste for my dog
my dog enjoys the product. she is blind now but still knows the smell even if she cannot see it.

My dog doesn't love it but will eat it
It appears to be bland from the smell. It has done what it is supposed to do so I can't complain.

This is a great product.
I definitely recommend the Prescription Diet Dry and Wet product. It sure makes my dog Mollie feel great. She is happy and has a lot of energy.

Helped my sick cat get better!
My 8 month old cat had a mild fever and wasn't acting herself. Slept all the time, didn't play. The vet prescribed this cat food because her illness wasn't that bad, and it gave her the boost to help her get better! Now she's running around and back to her crazy self, after two days! Even if it wasn't the food that magically made her get better, I'm sure it must have helped because she's good as new! She loved the taste, all the other cats wanted to steal it from her! A little pricier than normal cat food, but still definitely recommend to help your pet be on the mend!

Product does what it is supposed to do for my dogs digestive system
my dog has been on your product for 5months. So far all his blood values are where they are supposed to be so the diet is working. However my dog does not like the smell or taste and I have to doctor his portion with vegetables and occasionally boiled chicken sprinkled on the top to get him to eat it. I am very thankful that his levels are holding steady. I do not like the fact that the cans always have big air bubbles in them instead of being full. My other concern is the cost of your product...it may be ok for short term but at a can to a can and a quarter a day forever in my dogs case is a real hardship for me on a retired fixed income

The best for a sick cat
We started buying this when we had a very sick cat. This cat food really helped him survive even when it looked like he might not make it. The A/D is good for force feeding your cat when he can't eat on his own. This was the only cat food we could use that he could keep down. This was instrumental in his recovery.

My dog loves this food. Very healthy. Solved all the problems we were having with other foods.

Wonderful food for recovering kitty
We still aren't sure what made my kitty's weight drop from 13 lbs to 7 lbs, but he was not in good health. Since he refused to eat or drink anything on his own, the vet recommended 'assisted feeding' with this brand of cat food along with some prescription pills and fluid injections. The food mixes well with water and can be fed via plastic feeding syringe. After two or three days of syringe feeding, my kitty is eating this food right out of the can. He seems like he enjoys it and he looks a lot healthier. Thanks for making a reasonably priced prescription food that my kitty enjoys eating.

Made my cat well
My cat recently became very sick. She was not eating or drinking. Took her to my regular Vet , they did a bunch of tests found nothing wrong . Gave her IVs and force feedings,nothing helped. Took her to another Vet who noticed a red sore throat. Gave me medicine and A/D to give her mixed with water given with syringe. Made her well ,and now the is all she eats. Saved her life!

Hills A/D canned - As a vet I approve!
I am a veterinarian who feeds Hills Prescription Diet A/D to some of my sick hospitalized patients. When a cat or dog is so sick they do not want to eat, it is often only A/D that will spark their appetite. Thank you for making a nutritionally dense appetizing product for my sick patients.

This product takes the worry out of properly feeding our cat.
Our cat loves this food! We feed him the wet food twice a day and he cleans the plate every time. We also keep dry out for him and he likes it too. It's so nice to have a food that addresses his health issues that he really likes. It's a win, win situation. Our concerns are being met by using Hill's Prescription Diet products.

Saved Hendrix's life!!!!!!
Two of our border collie pups out of our current litter came down with coccidia. After taking Hendrix to the vet for a two day stay we found out he was blind. We got him home again only to shortly lose another pup from the same thing. (In the car on the way to emergency sadly enough) Hendrix was doing well for 4 days until he was becoming increasingly more lazy and dehydrated. He went off his food and water and after another trip to the vet they gave us 3 tins of a/d to feed him with the syringe every 2 hours as he was becoming severely underweight. He isn't too much of a fan of the taste but that is possibly due to the syringe. In the last 3 days we have noticed that he has started eating on his own again when we offer him mince, he is taking water better now and is becoming more and more lively. We even got little tail wags tonight and he rolled over for a belly rub. He is now 7 weeks old and if it wasn't for Hills science diet a/d I don't think he would be with us today. Thank you for saving our pups life!!!!!

more energy and playful
Squeak's willingness to chase and play are dramatically changed since he started this diet. He spends more time on his own playing with his toys.

Love the size of the can, which makes it more economically.
This product has helped my Nikki through hard times. At every feeding she dances like a ballerina, she loves the taste so much.
Thank you for this product.

Essential Nutrition in a can !!!
My 13 year old Siamese was diagnosed with a severe illness and was not eating. A/D critical care has the consistency of baby food with absolutely no "chunks" of any sort that most other canned food has. This food gave her the nutrition she needed during that last critical month of her life after being diagnosed. My other Siamese, now 15 had acquired a taste for the A/D food as a "treat" when her mother was ill. She is healthy, but has a sensitive stomach, and will throw up other foods, so this is still her twice a day treat along with Age Defying senior 11+ dry food. Cats normally do not drink a lot of water, so my other 2 cats (1 1/2yr old girl and 5 months old boy) also get this as a twice a day treat because of the moisture content. Cats (like people) need proper nutrition to help prevent disease and illness. Thank you Science Diet/Prescription Diet for this amazing food. My kids (cats) thank you, also.

Healthy "furbaby" Again!
I can not express enough about how greatful I am for this cat food! I had a very sick cat and he was put on the Science Diet A/D critical care food, by my wonderful veterinarian. It saved my furbabies life. My cat being so sick and not liking wet cat food very much anyways surprisingly ate this and licked his little lips. He LOVED the taste. Thank you again for a truly amazing pet food.

Good moist food to add water to my cat's needed diet!
My cat is very finicky, but will eat this food most of the time. I prefer the wet food as it provides addition water to my cat's diet.

We rescued a stay cat who turned out to be a dwarf. He was 3 months old and only weighed half a pound. He is now 5 months old and has gained a pound on this food. The vet recommended it because it is high calorie and he loves the taste. We will continue to feed this while he is growing. Before feeding this food he has a low blood sugar problem so he may not be absorbing all his food. In that case we may have to supplement with this for life. Any way to get a discount? :)

Our 17 year old cat was prescribed this food. With only eating small portions at a time our cat was able to put on 1/2 a pound.
Our 7 year old cat tries to eat this food whenever the older cat steps away. It must taste pretty good. I hope others have as good a result as we've had.

This product is very attractive to pets
It is a very good food. Dogs who usually come in that do not want to eat, we start off with this food and immediately they start eating.
