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.

Metabolic diet cat food
My two thirteen year-old cats love it, but they seem to be hungry a lot more often. They have quite a bit of weight to lose, so I've had to balance between giving them the recommended amount for weight loss and making sure they're not hungry.
It is very expensive food. I was feeding them Science Diet before putting them on the prescription, so I'm used to paying a decent amount for dry cat food. However, the price of the prescription diet is approximately twice the cost.
My cats have only been on the diet for a month, so I'll continue to buy it for a few more months and see if there's any weight loss.

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!

this product has helped my cat to loose weight.
Cats are extremely hard to loose weight but this product has helped my cat loose much needed weight. The taste must be appealing because there were no issues transitioning to this food.

She finally lost the weight!
After adopting an over weight female cat (6years old) in September of 2010 I thought" No problem. I can get the weight off her." After taking her to the vet and getting a full check up they put her on feline M/D. After almost a year on that diet I took her back to the vet. She had only lost a 1/2 pound! She was only getting 3/4 of a cup a day. I was frustrated. In April of 2013 they put her on Metabolic. In October of 2013 she reached a weight of 12lbs. Pretty goood since she started at 16lbs! I am beyond happy with this diet!

My cat loves the dry food.
My cat Toby had to lose some weight and his vet recommended the metabolic weight dry cat food. He has lost 2 lbs in the two months that he has been on the diet. He loves the dry food and the treats. He would not even taste the can food. I have not had to buy as much can food (I have another smaller cat and she still eats the can food) because he just eats the dry food. I hope that he will be able to lose all the weight he needs and be able to go to a less expensive dry food.

Only Diet Food that has worked for our Cat!!!!!
This is a mircle product!!! Our 8 year old male cat has been on two other Prescription Hills diet food and hasn't drop an ounce. He just continued to gain weight. We started the Feline Metabolic Advanced Dry food on Sept 3, 2013, when we saw the Vet on 11/5/2013 he had lost 1.32 lbs. I'm very hopeful that he will continue to loss weight and get down to a healthy weight. We want him to live a long time and I'm sure losing weight will help him do just that. Thank you for making another great product. He also loves the Feline Metabolic treats!!

Cat gained weight on it!
My cats seem to like the food, but my male cat that needs to lose weight is actually gaining weight on this diet! He's been on this diet for a little over 4 full weeks now.
I have 2 cats and combined in total the cats are given 3/4 cup dry and 1 whole 5 oz can for the entire day.
My cat has almost gained an entire pound since being on this diet. I am at a loss of what to do as the vet even seems to think that the amount of food I'm feeding is almost too little for 2 cats to share.
My cat does not get food from any outside sources and he's able to get plenty of exercise, which he seems to want to do more since being on this food.

Good for weight loss, but very expensive
My cat is losing weight from being on this diet (as long as I feed her the amount prescribed by the vet). However, it is really expensive. While I really appreciate the $7 coupon offered on this website, I think the price is really too steep seeing as cats don't lose weight as quickly as humans and therefore will need to stay on it for a while.

Appears that my cat is losing weight
This is what we wanted to happen and she is losing weight. Your product is expensive, but appears to be getting the job done. She does like the taste.

Doesn't work for every cat
My cat has been on this food for about a year now, and has lost very little weight, despite the fact that I strictly follow the feeding recommendations as calculated by my vet's office using the software. She has lost a bit of weight, but has plateaued for a while now. She likes the taste, though, of this and the wet food.

This product has worked very well for my cats!
I don't enjoy that this product is so expensive but I do enjoy that my cats are losing weight and are healthier.

This food really works.
My adult cat is maintaining a healthy weight after losing three lbs. she really likes the food, her coat looks good and she has more energy.

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.

Diet without apparent hunger!
My one cat has about 2.5 pounds to lose. The vet recommended the Metabolic for her and she has lost 3 ounces in 3 weeks. This might seem slow but the vet was happy at the progress. The best thing is that she gets more food that she previously could have on her other dry food (and she has an appetite so this is important!!) and my other (non-portly) cat likes to eat it as well. Neither cat seems hungry (can they make this for people too???). :)

My cats are losing weight and are more active
We have noticed after two months of using Metabolic Advanced that our cats are losing weight and are more active. I wish it were not so expensive, but for now we will continue to use it for our overweight cats.

My cat likes it, and her weight is moving in the right direction!
My 8 year old American ShortHair cat weighed just over 13 lbs when she went on this product. We have only been using it for about a month, but she has already lost about a half a pound, and the best thing is that she is eager to eat it, and is not throwing it up like she was with her prior diet food. It is very expensive compared to grocery store pet food, but she is an important member of our family and her health is a big concern. We did use an introductory coupon, and hope that Hills will consider providing more coupons or perhaps a rebate or loyalty program. So far this seems to be working for us so I suggest others with overweight pets give it a try! We also bought the same Metabolic diet food for our dog. It is too soon to determine his progress, but we have high hopes!

not losing weight
my 10 yr old cat has maintained her 21.4 pound weight on this food for the last 3 months. I began feeding with the recommended 1/2 cup twice a day. After 4 weeks of no weight loss- vet recommended 1/3 cup twice a day. Still no loss.
Leary about feeding even less for this size cat. The food seems satisfying and the cat does not gobble it up at once.

Cats love it
My cat s like it but I have not weighed them yet to see if they lost weight. Kinda of expensive for cat food but if it works for weight loss, it would be worth it if you have a coupon to help with the cost.

Cat loves it and seems to be filled after eating it, which is great since she is also losing weight!

My cat loves it!
Lucky has only been on this "diet" for 5 days, so I don't know how it works yet, but he loves it! Licks the bowl clean and scarfs up the dry! We will let you know how it works in a few weeks!

This Product Works...
We have two cats with an ideal weight of 12 lbs each. The male was three pounds overweight and the female two pounds overweight. The female is now down below her ideal weight thanks to this food and the male has lost more than a pound. Since they've started losing weight both cats have more energy and love to chase each other around the house. I'm very glad our vet recommended this diet.

Changing over now...Cats losing weight.
Several of our cats are a little over weight and the vet just recommended this food. We are changing over from CD Dry to this food and the cats seem to like it and are losing weight. WE have always used Science Diet foods for our cats and we have been happy with all of them.

Too good to be true but IT IS!
Prescription Metabolic works, I'm pleasantly surprised. My 2 cats never hesitated, just dove right in, so the taste must be good. Within one month, I see a noticeable difference in my chubby cat. She's definitely not as round, already has started slimming down. And she does seem to have more energy to play and explore. I highly recommend this product - I wish they made it for humans!!!!

Paws of Approval
All five of my cats went crazy as soon as I opened the bag. They all tried to make their food pan solely their's. The packaging was a Very nice design. The easy open and resealable velcro strip's on the bag for resealing is a great feature! The aroma of the food smelled very pleasant. The bite size piece's were purrrfect for my 4 month old kittens. Thank~you Hill's Science!!!

So, I have 15lbs cats. The vet said they needed to scale down a bit and recommended the Metabolic for weight control/loss. The cats LOVE it, but it does not seem to fill them well. After about an hour they act like they are already hungry again. I give them the recommended amount and sometimes even put the wet Metabolic with it. By the 12hr time to feed them, they are completely famished. The diet isn't going so well-will prob put them back on a regular food when this bag is up.

cats have not only lost noticable weight, but have lots more energy
have tried several low calorie foods in the past, including R/D but my 2 overweight cats were obnoxious with the calorie restricted diets. They are still understandably hungry on the Metabolic diet, but are tolerable. The weight loss and increased energy level are apparent to my visitors. My third thin pet has maintained his weight eating the recommended amount of Metabolic. Very happy with the ongoing results. anticipate a year for targeted body weights on all...almost halfway there for the heaviest.

My pet has lost a little over 1 pound since a month and a half
However, the alkali level in the urine of my cat went from about 6 to 9 after 2 weeks of using this product.

Not sure yet
My two furry boys have been on this food for over a month now and have not lost weight. On a positive note, they have not gained more weight either. They like the taste and do not beg me for more once their daily portion has been consumed. They are 20 lbs. and 23.4 lbs. I have been feeding them the exact recommended amount daily, no cheating. The personalized weight loss charts I was given say weigh loss should occur within the first two weeks, which might be a little quick in reality. I was told by the receptionist at the vet to give this product two months to see some results as that is what she saw with her cat. Since it's still a little early, I am hopeful I will see results by this time next month! The food is quite expensive, but I am dedicated to keeping my boys on this diet as they are at least 50% overweight and their health is endangered right now.
