Hill's® Prescription Diet® Feline Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution
Highly Recommend for Over Weight Cats
We have an eight year old cat that looked like she swallowed someones bowling ball. We received a notice from our vet that a product was on the market that we should consider trying. Our cat was 18 lbs when we started her on the Metabolic diet food. After 4 months she is now down to 14 lbs. Her short hair coat is silky soft. She has more energy. We will definitely keep her on this diet until she gets down to her ideal weight. We have now started our dogs on this plan and are hopeful we will get the same wonderful results. This product is highly recommended.

Great for fat cats!
One of my cats was getting very heavy, close to 16 lbs. My vet was concerned so she recomended the Metabolic diet.
He now has a very defined waist and is looking very handsome. I will continue to feed this to both my cats to keep them trim.
Now if only us humans had such a magical food!

She's finally losing weight!
I had my cat on low calorie food for a long time but she kept gaining weight. It was not cheap food it was Science Diet. I got a bag of Metabolic and she started losing weight in the first 2 weeks. She has been on this food for 2 months now and has lost 2 lbs but the change in her level of energy has been what has thrilled us as much as the weight loss! It is so cute to see her doing things that she couldn't do before or just didn't feel like doing. This food is expensive but I'm only feeding it to one cat (we have 5) so a 17 lb bag lasts a long time. I know the price will prevent people from buying it but in my opinion it's worth trying. Be sure to read and follow the feeding directions if you are serious about your cat losing weight.

This product does what it claims.
Our two cats are able to eat well and maintain a healthy weight. They have high energy and are eager for meal times which tells us that they are enjoying their food. One eats quicker than the other so he waits patiently for his sister to leave her dish so he can go and lick it clean.

Weight Loss Diet that really works!
I love this diet! My cats were both severely overweight. I switched them to Hill's Metabolic Diet and fed them twice a day as instructed by my veterinarian. They are both indoor cats so losing weight has always been a struggle. Now they have both lost weight, they are running around the house more and playing a lot!

I trust this product to safely and effectively help my cat lose weight
This product is perfectly balanced to safely and effectively aid cats, like mine, in losing weight. I trust this product to provide my cat with all of the nutrients he requires in the appropriate amounts, while also remaining highly palatable. High quality ingredients, as well as research to back up the efficacy of this pet food also make me feel good about feeding it to my cat.

Good nutrition with fewer calories
Our five cats were all transitioned to a canned-and-dry-food combination of the Metabolic Diet cat food shortly after exceeding their desired weights while eating another brand.
Each cat seems satisfied with the 5 ounces a day total that our veterinarian recommended and each has slowly lost the excess weight.

Nutritious but Expensive
The Metabolic Cat Food is expensive for two cats. (Coupons help alleviate the cost.) Both Bebe and Miss Sara are around 8 years old and overweight. They like the food and it seems to satisfy them, but neither cat has lost weight. (My overweight dog did lose weight and gained better health from the Metabolic Dog Food.) The veternerian has said, "Cats do not lose weight as quickly as dogs on the average." We are continuing the food and trying to get them to play and exercise more.

Product recommended by veterinarian
From the day our cat, Maxine, adopted us, we fed her the more expensive dry cat foods. After a year or so we noticed she was gaining weight. She had always been active and liked to play but now she was sleeping all day and not moving unless it was time to eat. We finally figured out her cat food was high in calories so we switched to weight-control dry foods but, even with the close monitoring of her food intake, she stayed the same weight. Most importantly, our sweet kitty was constantly hungry which was very upsetting to us. Our veterinarian told us she could easily become diabetic if she didn't lose some weight soon. He recommended Hill's® Prescription Diet® Feline Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution for our cat. Happy to say, she has finally lost some of the weight. Even though she gets a small amount of dry food 4 times a day, she seems satisfied and not crying for more. Our kitty now has a "new lease on life." She's acting happier and having fun again ..... and we're thankful. Thank you, Hill's, for offering this great product!

Putting a 23 pound cat on a diet
Scooter is a long-haired all black 7-year-old cat that I found as a 2-month-old kitten. Since he had gotten up to 23 pounds, he must be mostly Maine Coon ... they tend to be "bigger boned ;) We started on the Feline Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution several months ago and have already lost almost 2 pounds! And the Metabolic Treats!!!! He thinks he can’t get enough of them, but I count them out for him anyway. My only problem with the Metabolic food is that my other two cats love the smell and want it, too, so I have to feed them in separate rooms, and not free-feed them all day!

metabloic diet food
My cat has been on this food for 3 months. She loves it, but hasn't lost an ounce. She wants to eat more, but the Vet said no more than 2/3 cup a day.

Working on weight loss with my 2-year old cat.
After he was neutered at 6 months, my kitten developed a huge appetite and started eating large amounts of dry food. He started gaining weight. At 8 months the vet took him off his kitten food and switched him to adult food. He was still gaining so the vet put him on adult light food. He will eat only dry, no wet food of any kind. He still gained. A month ago the vet suggested the Metabolic formula, so we tried it. Teddy has lost 1/4 pound in a month, and while it's not a big reduction, it's something and the vet was pleased. Teddy loves the food and the treats. So we just bought another bag and will continue on our current plan of action. I have used other Science Diet prescription formulas with two of my other cats in the past and it has always worked well. I've fed many of my cats the regular Science Diet dry foods - they have always seemed to like it and they all ate well.

Cats loved the taste, but did not lose weight
I decided to try this food after trying other veterinary prescription diets for weight loss that did not work. After over 6 months of trying the food, my 20 lb cat has not lost any weight. I fed him according to the feeding guidelines, and watched closely that he did not eat the other cat's food. Both of my cats loved the taste of this food, but always seemed hungry between meals. I have heard of other animals losing weight on this food, but unfortunately, it just didn't work for mine.

Didn't work for my pet
Although I'm sure this may work for some pets, it did not work for mine. With the reduction in food she is constantly hungry and in 10 months has lost a total of half a pound. I would not recommend this for cat owners.

My cat is trim!!
My senior cat, Pumpkin, was overweight--a lot! He was healthy but has carried extra weight for many years. On the recommendation of my vet, I started him on Prescription Diet, and he had, at last weigh-in in March, gone from 16 pounds to 12.3 pounds. I suspect that he has lost more since then. He is able to navigate stairs much easier, and today he was on the cat tree, which he has NEVER climbed before. Pumpkin likes the taste of this food, and I have to isolate him when he eats because my other cats want to eat it, too!

Cats really like it
Our two big cats really like this dry food. They are fairly picky eaters and they took to this food fairly fast. They are losing but it is a slow process.

This product provides the necessary nutrients and ingredients to keep our cats healthy and well nourished while maintaining their weight.
Nellie(8) and Walter(6) have been part of our family for 3 years now. They adopted us from the Animal Rescue Shelter. I say this because while their looking for pets to adopt Nellie just wandered over to where I was sitting climbed on the chair, over my shoulder and then made herself comfortable on my lap...actually closing her eyes and falling asleep. How could I possibly leave her there! We then asked for another pet to keep Nellie company and they recommended Walter. It took awhile but the two finally hit if off. We love them dearly so we decided, along with our caring vet, to feed them a proper diet. That turned out to be Hills. Nothing is too good for our loving furry pets. We had the misfortune of losing a pet to diabetes after 8 years of giving her daily insulin shots and vowed that we would do whatever was necessary to never let this happen to another pet. Hills Science diet is one important way to help prevent our cats from developing diabets and giving them a food that that enjoy. We are forever grateful to our vet for introducing us to Hills.

Science Diet - Weight Control
This is only offered through my vet office at this time, but it is very easy to swing by there to get it. My cat easily adjusted to the taste and it very happy with the product. Hopefully we will see some results in our "fluffy" cat.

My giant Maine Coon-mix needed to lose a few pounds after gaining said pounds over the years. Nothing seemed to work. The vet told me about this about-to-be-released Metabolic Diet from Prescription Diet that had had excellent results in trials, and contacted me as soon as it was available. In the first six months, he dropped almost 2 pounds (out of 24)! He has continued to lose; I will find out how much at his next vet visit in May.

Exceeds all my expectations, delivers what it promises!
My 5 year old Kitty Kat Gypsy was weighed at the Vet on March 17, 2014. She weighed 19.3 lbs, she was lethargic, dull coat and absolutely now energy. She started on Hills food that very day and on April 17, 2014 she weighed in at 18.67 lbs! WOOHOOT. She has lost 12.69 ounces thus far. She is running around the house, jumping up to the top of the back of the couch (has never been able to do this before), her coat is silky and shiny and she is now able to fight back when her feline fur brother Salem decides to play! I am a believer! Thank you for making such an incredible product and thank you from Gypsy and Salem. Sincerely, Tami Guilbert-Watchurst

Very satisfied with this product
This food is very effective in overweight cats. My 8 year old cat was gaining weight steadily until he started eating metabolic formula. Now he has lost 2 lbs in just a few months. He is not as active as he used to be, but he is still able to lose the weight on this food. He also loves the taste of the food. I highly recommend this food for any overweight cat.

Our 2 cats love it.
Our 2 cats stay inside and don't get a lot of exercise so this food keeps their weight under control.

The metabolic food for cats is a wonderful tasty products that works great. I have 7 cats and half of them have issues with over eating. I have tried different diets in the past and finally came upon a diet that my cats like and respond to. I also love the fact that there are treats available which the cats love as21 well. So far my heavy cat has lost 2 pounds from being 19 lbs. It's a great product and most definitely would recommend it to owners with overweight kitties.

My overweight cat has actually lost weight on this diet. It seems to satisfy his hunger. I no longer leave out kibble for all of the cats to eat. I measure everyone's food and feed them twice a day. I have three cats and only one of them is overweight. The overweight cat has arthritis in his hips, and stopped moving around like he use to. That is when the weight came onto him. Now that he has lost a little weight, he is moving around more and seems less painful. Thank you Hill's Prescription Diet for this special diet for my big kitty.

My cat is an American Shorthair, and just turned two this month. He is very active and plays with my roommate and brothers cats all the time.
I've been using this product for about 5 months now and at first my cat gained 2 pounds, which at already 18lbs to start, I was horrified. We kept using it, I reduced the amount of food he was getting but then he just seemed hungry all day. He was getting 3/4 cup only and he can't seem to get below 18lbs. So disappointed considering other reviews and the fact that I've spent excessive amounts on this food. I just want my baby angel healthy!
