Rated 5 out of 5 by Maisy8 My cat's coat never looked so good!
My cat's big to begin with, so extra pounds don't help her overall health. Our vet recommended Metabolic, and I decided to give it a try--even though I wasn't thrilled about the likely higher ongoing cost, the extra trips to the vet to purchase it, and the very real possibility my cat wouldn't like "diet" food. I was wrong all the way around! My cat loves her Hill's wet and dry Metabolic, her coat is soft and silky, and she's lost a little weight. I pre-order my cat's food through my vet's office, and they even take the great coupons Hill's offers (making Hill's much less expensive than the brand I used to buy). My cat, my wallet, and I are very happy!

My cat actually will eat this wet food, but with giving her only a teaspoon daily with her medicine the can last long and she refuses to eat after 5 day's of use of the can, so we end up always throwing them away.
Wish you came up with a smaller size can for picky eaters like her.
The price is a bit high and I never seem to get coupons that haven't expired already at the vet office.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stacy1 My cats became more active
After about a week of eating the Metabolic Feline canned and wet food, my cats started feeling and acting more energetic than they had in months. We noticed that as their activity levels increased, they started losing the excess weight they had gained prior to eating the Metabolic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MetabolicCatFoodReview Does help with weight loss
My Cat lost over nine pounds using the Prescription Metabolic Canned food. The dry food, based on my trying the dry RD type the year before, did nothing to help. The Metabolic Canned version came to market and I then used that. Over nine pounds lost for my cat was an incredible result. I have now switched to the Science Diet Light canned for the future as the calorie count is similar. I think my cat would have lost the weight using the Science Diet Light Canned as well just because I never used canned food before. PLUS, I was dedicated to using just one 5.5 ounce can per day of intake. Nonetheless, the Prescription Metabolic Canned version is what we used and it helped us achieve this amazing result.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NanaJ This has been effective for my cat's weight loss so far.
Even though a little pricey, this canned food formula has already resulted in weight loss (along with the metabolic dry food), for my cat, who has only been on it for a month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by moonpie I think this is a good product for keeping my kitty healthy
My cat likes both the dry & wet metabolic food. I know she rather have some of the store bought food better. But this is all I had feed her since I bought her from the shelter. She seems to like it very much. I have never have had a problem with her eating habits she always eats well but then again she is young still. Hopefully, she will stay healthy and active and live a very long life on this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rosalindr Broke the plateau
One of my foster cats came back from adoption weighing 20 lbs. I took her to my regular vet and he put her on regular diet food. She lost down to 17 lbs but plateaued at that weight and stopped losing.
I took her to another vet who put her on Metabolic and she started losing again. Now she's down to a slim 13.75 lbs (she's a big cat).
She loves the food and has almost reached her goal weight of 13 lbs. I plan to keep her on Metabolic for weight maintenance too. It's expensive but probably cheaper than vet bills for whatever conditions she could have developed staying obese.

The cats really enjoy the metabolic formula wet food and it has helped them lose weight. Only downside is the expense of the food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DixieGirl It's cat food!!
This is diet cat food, which our vet recommended (& prescribed) for our overweight cat. It seems to be working, as - slowly but surely - she's dropping weight. The most positive aspect of this product is that the cat seems to really like it, which is a lot more than we can say for most human-targeted diet food. That being said, the cat became overweight in large part because she enjoys just about all food. ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shar This product is the best for your cat to lose and maintain weight
My cat loves her wet food, she licks it clean. She is healthy since I changed her food from regular advertised cat food to your brand. When we go to the vet she gets a clean bill of health.

It's always a feeding frenzy when our three cats get their wet food at dinner time. They love this food! It seems to be helping with wait loss too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beth37 It is helping my cat lose weight
I started with R/D dry, but my cat wasn't losing weight. I switched to prescription Metabolic wet and dry food, and after a few tries, got the right mix, and Oliver is losing weight on it. While it is pretty expensive, it is doing a good job and as long as he continues to lose weight, I will use it. He loves both the wet and dry food. I would recommend it to anyone who has tried other food, with no results. This seems to do what others (even Hills) did not do. I am very pleased with the results and Oliver loves it. So all is well.
Thank you, Olivers' mother

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunny1234 metabolic wet cat food
My two thirteen year old cats love it. It's pricey, but at least I know I'm giving them quality soft food. I've always been a fan of Hills. I'm hoping that this weight loss diet really works!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Fivecats5 No weight loss
My cat is extremely over weight at 21 lbs. I've tried several different low fat cat foods, both prescription and over the counter. I started my cat on a combination of Feline Metabolic can and dry food a year ago. Unfortunately she has not lost any weight even with lowering the amounts that I feed her several times. The only good thing is that she has not gained any more weight. I was just advised by a Hill's customer service agent to go back to my vet to get a better understanding of what type food and how much my cat should be eating. I'm very frustrated that I can't find any cat food that works for my sweet girl!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lilu My pet lost weight
I feel that Metabolic Diet worked better than typical low calorie or low fat poducts. My cat lost significant weight in a relatively short amount of time. She became more energetic which, I think, added to the weight reduction. Her coat also became very shiney. The science that went into choosing the ingredients for this product really seems to be working.
The reasons that I did not give 5 stars are these: 1) it is a little pricey, 2) I don't think my cat really loves the taste because she was reluctant when switching and she usually eats anything (therefore the weight issue), 3) the nuggets for the dry food are too large; she is a cat that swallows pieces whole and vomits food that has large pieces, and lastly, 4) I personally dislike the smell. I've served other canned foods that smell much nicer.
