  2. Follow-up: After 48 hours, introduction of feeding is necessary. To increase tolerance in heavily affected animals, small and repeated intakes of high energy and highly digestible nutrients are recommended in addition to Nutribound®.

3 - Transition: Nutribound® can be given with the usual diet to help the pet to return to its normal diet.
