Now before we go into a full on diet debate: remember we are discussing recovery of a sick animal...

My vet who has a Masters degree in zoological medicine from Cornell and A zoological nutrition masters degree from University of Maryland at College Park, recommends giving Hills prescription diet a/d as a supplement during recovery.

Under no circumstances should any dog food/cat foot be considered as a NORMAL food item for any monitor... However during recovery of a sickly/dehydrated animal, this stuff is packed with nutrients, and is made up of pureed livers.



If you chose to try this, you will need to purchase the food from a vet, and it's not exactly cheap... I have seen it work, it's got a great moisture content, so it aids in re-hydration as well.

If you chose to hammer on my post, I surely hope your level of education and experience can match hers.
