  • How to adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal weight.

    Adjust feeding amounts as necessary to maintain optimal weight. Monitoring your patient's condition will assure the nutritional recommendation provides the best results.

    • Reinforce with clients to feed Prescription Diet dry food, canned food, & treats exclusively.
    • Gradually transition to the new food over a 7 day period.
    • Avoid transitioning to the new food during periods of illness or hospitalization. A food aversion may develop, causing decreased acceptance of the food when the pet is feeling better.
