Best food after my dog's oral surgery

My mini labradoodle has very small mouth and got significant teeth issues. After multiple extractions, he didnt want to eat...AT ALL. My vet suggested Recovery RS. He loves it, even with a mouthful of stitches.

Helps get the medicine down!

My senior cat has A variety of meds that she takes in food. Her favorite canned food in which to take her “treat” is Recovery. It’s tasty flavor hides the taste of her meds and gives her a nice little snack a couple times per day.

My Cats love the Taste

I bought the first case when my mom cat disappesred for over a month and came back as was so skinny that I was told to start RC Recovery RS to put the weight back on. It was amazing. She loved it. She has passed away now, but my other cats love it. So they remain on it. I am a fan of this product.

Great for syringe feeding

I have used this for many years when I need to syringe feed one of my cats. It mushes up perfectly.

Crew loves it!

Our elderly gal, who is 17, was in the hospital last year, and as part of her recovery, our veterinarian prescribed this. She loves it so much!! She wakes me up by pawing at me at 5:00 am, begging for her food! The others have had "samples" as well, and they all line up, hoping that a few bites might just "fall" out of her bowl. I'm very pleased with Royal Canin.
