For Adult Cats
Emeraid® Sustain™ HDN Feline is a therapeutic product to be used under the supervision of a veterinarian. Begin with 25% to 30% of daily emeraid, critical care, nutrition, recovery felinecaloric requirements and gradually adjust the volume and number of feedings based on patient condition. A volume of 5-10 ml/kg/feeding is generally well tolerated via esophagostomy or gastric tube. The following equation can be used to calculate resting energy requirement: RER = [70 x BW(kg)0.75] .

Evaluate the Patient’s Feeding Response
Did the patient accept this feeding well? Does the food appear to be tolerated by the patient’s GI tract?
If yes, increase the volume fed gradually over the course of two to three feedings. Frequency and volume should be adjusted based upon patient response.
Long Term Feeding
Under the direct supervision of a veterinarian, feline patients may be fed Emeraid® Sustain™ HDN™ long term. When the patient has fully recovered, they may transition to their regular diet as recommended by their veterinarian.
