Hill's Prescription Diet a/d Canine & Feline should be recommended by your veterinary surgeon. For detailed information on feeding amounts and how this food can help your pet, please consult your veterinary surgeon. These ranges are a starting point only because pets' needs vary. The amount to be fed and the length of feeding will vary depending on the medical condition of the patient. Adjust the feeding amount to maintain optimal body weight and divide into 3-6 equal portions, fed throughout the day. 

For greatest acceptance, ensure food is between room and body temperature (20 - 40 degrees C); do not feed straight from the refrigerator. When syringe-feeding, thoroughly stir the contents of the can before filling the syringe. For tube feeding blend with 1-2 parts water. Discard any unused portion after 36 hours.

In patients with reduced gastrointestinal function, a 3 day transitional feeding strategy may be necessary:

Day 1 -  a third of recommended total intake twice that amount of water;
Day 2 -  two- thirds of recommended total intake half that amount of water;
Day 3 -  full recommended intake, undiluted.
