Hill's® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Feline
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.

Disappointed with results
My 12 pound cat has been on Metabolic wet and dry cat food for nine months and has not lost any weight. She is constantly hungry and sits by her bowl waiting patiently for more food,( which is not given). She has not gained any more weight and her coat is nice and shiny but I am disappointed and frustrated that this diet does not work for her. As she likes the taste I will continue to feed her this brand but as a weight loss program this fails.

Weight loss for cats!!
I started my 3 cats on metabolic because I had one very overweight cat but the other 2 were a good weight. I didn't want them all losing weight on a more calorie restricted diet, but it was too difficult to split them up to feed. Metabolic solved by problem, the smaller cats have maintained their weight while the overweight one is getting closer to her ideal weight. And she doesn't act like she's starving, which makes everyone happy!

Excellent diet that works!
My overweight cat LOVES her Metabolic food! She chooses it over the other cats' food. She also gets to eat more of the Metabolic food than any other diet food and seems satisfied, all while getting her down to a more healthy weight!

Excellent diet for our barn cat!
Barney is a senior tuxedo and is prone to obesity. He gains a lot of weight in the winter when the barn is cold and he spends more time sleeping. This diet keeps his weight more even throughout the year. He loves the taste!

Purrfect food forchubby kitties
I work at a veterinary hospital and have seen alot of overweight cats. I also have a couple of chubby cats. I have seen the Metabolic food work wonders at loosing and maintaining a healthy weight. My cats love this food. It also comes in treats with the same ingredients, so when we as owners think our cats are hungry, we can give them some treats. AWESOME PRODUCT

Great help for our lazy overweight cat!
Our 4 year old cat weighs 17 pounds, mainly because she was very timid when we rescued her, and therefore hid a lot and is used to being inactive. Our vet recommended the Metabolic diet to increase her energy and activity.... and said it was fine to allow our 9 pound 2 year old girl to also eat the same food! So much better than trying to feed them separately! We have noticed an increased interest in playing in the past 5 or 6 months, and that is so great!

It Really works!
I have 2 cats who were both over weight, we tried the Hill's Metabolic on the advise of our vet and I actually saw results! My cats have both lost weight and love the taste of this food. They even go looking for the crumbs that they drop on the floor.
Over the course of 1 year, Athena (originally weighing16lbs# lost 2lbs and Siren #originally 18 lbs ) lost 1lbs.

Metabolic is a good choice for my overweight calico. My siamese is also a fan of Metabolic but doesn't need weight management. She likes it better than her regular brand. So it must be tasty and I try to limit her intake of her sister's food. I'm a fan and will definitely keep the calico on Metabolic.

Doesn't do the job as advertised
My 5 year old cat likes the product, however, after eating this food as directed, she has only lost 6/10 of a pound in 7 months.

Taste good she likes it.
It is working for her she likes it, she meows for it.

This is a great product and has great taste.
My two cats, Bonnie and Clyde love this product. They are on it to lose weight but that doesn't seem to be working. My Vet is going to weigh them again the middle of this month to see if it is working this time. Hope so. They are 4 years old.

Food is okay
My cats somewhat like the food. When my vet prescribed this food I was told it would help them lose weight without making them hungry. My younger cat who is very obese, has not lost anywhere near the weight the chart said and he is almost always hungry.

Different cats, different results
Tommy has been on Metabolic for 13 months now, and has lost four pounds. Stewart has been on the diet for 5 months, and has lost two pounds. I remember taking Tom to the vet for his consult and was told that by their calculations, he would be losing a 1/2 lb per month. They had him set to reach his goal weight in less than a year. Tommy still has 3 lbs to go. Stewart is only 2 lbs away from his goal.
Both cats love the food and get it spread out five times a day. Tom gets 3/4 cup and Stew gets 2/3 cup. Tom has had the wet food when he was sick and loves both. However, he's always hungry. Stewart is satisfied more easily. They have had Metabolic treats integrated over the last two months and they love those as well.
It's pricey. Their 8.5 lb bag costs ten dollars more than a 15 lb bag of Ideal Balance for the girls. But I'm glad the bubs are getting their health back on track.

Expensive but it works!
My overweight cat lost 1.7 lbs. on this diet. We'd tried everything but this product and nothing worked, this did!
He looks great, our vet is happy and he is more active.
Remember to go on-line and look for coupons. This will save you money if you're in it for the long haul.

Moving to Ireland? Kitty needs to lose weight. =0)
This journey started just over a year ago when my husband told me that we may be moving to Ireland for a year of two. At the time both of our cats were being free fed and overweight. So I went to my vet and inquired about a good weight loss food for my cats so I could take them as 'carry-on' from the west to the east coast. They were prescribed "Hill's® Prescription Diet®
Feline Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution".
I gradually transitioned them from their regular food to the new diet and then slowly reduced their intake to the recommended amount prescribed by my vet. It has taken a year but both cats have lost a significant amount of weight. The male originally weighted over 19 pounds and is currently at 17. His sister originally weighed 14 pounds and is now just under 13. She cheats! She tries to steal his food. But all-in-all, I'm happy with the progress of both cats. We (the vet and I) did it safely and slowly over a decent amount of time. And now that we will be moving, I have NO issue bringing them on the aircraft for the first leg of their new journey. =0)

My boys (2 cats) are healthy and happy and I know their diet plays a huge role in that. Thank you!

Have one thin cat one overweight and one normal size. They all seem to enjoy the taste. Tried on advice of my vet to help my 20 lb. manx. Seems to have slowed down his constant eating but too soon to tell if he's lost any weight. Good value and no side tummy issues.

This food is a good solution to my cat's weight problem.
We are pleased that our cat, Precious, enjoys Hill's Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution. Weighing 22 pounds and suffering from poor health attributed to obesity, Precious needed a change in her diet, and this is just what the doctor ordered. She has lost a few pounds already, and she looks much healthier. Precious has much more energy, and we saw her sliding across the room, diving in and out of a cardboard box. We didn't expect to see that! Thanks for caring about our pets!

Within a few days of putting my cat on metabolic prescription he had become more energetic, his coat was softer and he didn't smell anymore. He always had such a bad odor before, we kept a can of febreeze around. We had tried several different cat foods but nothing helped the odor. He also has lost weight, had to stop fee feeding him, but bought a Pet Feedster and am feeding him 5 times a day. He adjusted very easily to the schedule.

Good, But Too Expensive
This product was recommended by my vet. It is way too expensive and continues to go up in price. My minions seem to like it and it appears to be working for them.

My cat likes this dry food.
My vet recommended Prescription Diet dry food for weight management because my rescue cat had become a little overweight in the year since we adopted her and at 4 years old, not too active. She gets a 3 oz. can of cat food each day, but also gets a portion of dry food for "snacking." She was on Blue Hills but quickly took to Prescription Diet. She does seem to have a little more energy so I will definitely keep her on this product.
August 15, 2014
We have two adult female cats and they both love the taste. We go through 4 lbs every two weeks and are at about 4 weeks and we hope to see a change in our 19 lb cat.

Has not helped my cat lose weight
I measure carefully and feed exactly as directed. My male kitty loves this dry food, but he can't have much. He's always hungry and hasn't lost any weight at all. The food is pricey and has not helped my 2 year old cat lose any weight. I'm very disappointed. I have used Science Diet food for years and have been pretty satisfied. I wish this would work because I don't think there's anything out there that is any better. Will finish the bag I have now (the 2nd bag I've bought) then check with the vet and see what she recommends.

Love at first bite!
Both of my fur babies loved this food right away, and I have seen fewer instances of them vomiting it back up. Their energy seems somewhat improved and they are quiet and content until the next feeding (twice a day). Unfortunately, I am not yet able to speak to any weight loss, but I have only been using this for about one month. I am hopeful that after two or more months, I can report weight reduction since they should be at 14 pounds (currently at 18). If not I will try reducing amount that I'm giving them.

Great weight loss program
Jake loves this food. He looses a little every month. He was 27 lbs. He now weighs 22 lbs. He has 12 more pounds to go.
