For quality, consistency and taste, or your money back

Cats and dogs can undergo significant metabolic changes when recovering from surgery, illness or injury. While under these stressful conditions, your pet is challenged to maintain their strong natural defenses which makes it even more important to feed the right food to help your pet bounce back from these tough situations.

Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed Prescription Diet a/d, clinically proven nutrition specially formulated for dogs and cats recovering from surgery, illness or injury so you can feel confident you are giving your pet your best.

How it works:

  • High levels of digestible protein and fat to support recovery
  • Smooth, soft, moist and unique consistency, stirring makes it more liquid, to enable multiple feeding options
  • Clinically proven antioxidants to support immune function & healing

How it helps:

  • Energy dense and rich in calories to provide the energy needed during recovery
  • Exceptional taste to encourage eating
  • Maximum flexibility in feeding - by hand, bowl, spoon, syringe or tube - to deliver the essential nutrients critically ill pets need
  • Bolsters immune system and supports your pet's natural ability to heal

Additional info:

Hill's Prescription Diet a/d is intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only. Not recommended for long-term feeding (more than 6 months). Please consult your veterinarian for further information on how our Prescription Diet foods can help your pet to continue to enjoy a happy and active life.
