My search for the truth about commercial pet food began, as it has for so many others, with a tragedy that forced me to examine the choices I had been making every day with regard to care of my cats. One of those critical choices was the food I purchased and fed to them.

My 11 year old cat just had stomach surgery last week. He was discharged yesterday from the animal hospital and we were sent home with 4 cans of Hill’s Prescription Diet Critical Care. During his stay at the hospital, he was lethargic and had little or no appetite. Within hours after eating this food, he was extremely perky and responsive like his regular self… too much so that we decided to restrict him from eating so much of this stuff. He was jumping up and down from furniture and we felt that his stitches might come out with this over activity. Overall, I think the critical care formula is a very good product for cats recovering from major trauma. It made a significant difference in recovery for him.

Find a life-stage appropriate canned food that has a similar list of ingredients to the critical care/recovery diet. If you can find one that has a smooth consistency similar to the recovery foods, go with that one. If not, put flaked or chunked foods in the blender (adding a little water if necessary) before mixing the old and new together. Gradually increase the amount of new food you are mixing with the old. It may take weeks until your cat is eating only the new food and a few more before you can put the blender away, but getting him or her back on an optimal diet is worth the effort.

I got Acana's Wild Prairie Cat, Solid Gold's Katz-N-Flocken, and Wellness' Trufood Indoor - Chicken, Chickpeas & Chicken Liver Recipe. The weaker one, Ponyo, is currently on Hill's Prescription Diet a/d Canine/Feline Critical Care. She is able to eat on her own and I feed her every 4 hours, through the night too. I let her eat till she shows disinterest, and depending on how much I've seen her eat, I'll syringe-feed another 1 or 2 mL. She refuses to eat anything else - dry cat food, Oxbow's Critical Care and Carnivore Care, even if it's mixed into the a/d canned food. She can't be on a/d forever due to the high protein and fats and I'm worried she won't eat anything! So far, despite the high protein and fats, she lost some weight. The other eats the dry cat food just fine and I think she's put on some weight since I got her...
