Hill's® Prescription Diet® Canine Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution
This food works!
My dog ended up gaining weight after she hurt her back and ended up not being able to be as active as before she got hurt. My wife and I tried many things to try and get her to lose the weight-like increasing her level of activity and having her on Hill's w/d Prescription Diet. This didn't seem to work for her as her weight stayed pretty much the same. However, once we talked to our vet about the new Metabolic food and our vet did the measurements required by Hill's, we were told what amount of food to feed her and here we are about 8 months later and she is almost down to her target weight! I have also noticed increased muscle strength and she just seems lighter on her feet. It is also worth mentioning that our dog absolutely LOVES the taste of this food--more so than any other we have previously tried.
Both my wife and I are very happy with the results of this food and the value of it and we would both recommend it!

definitely worth the money!
our pup, well dog i should say because he's seven years old, has always been overweight and like most owners we never thought much about it. however, in april of this year he tore his acl and was in need of surgery to repair it. we decided that it was finally time to get the excess weight off of him to avoid the same injury to the other back leg. we started him on the metabolic food the same week we found out he needed the surgery. four months later i am proud to say not only has he fully recovered from the surgery, which took 12 weeks of limiting his activity to strictly allowing him out to the restroom and back inside to sit, but he's lost 22 pounds since starting the metabolic food. thank you hill's prescription diet employees for coming up with this food. you've truly helped us give snickers a healthier and better quality of life by getting this excess weight off. only 8 more pounds and he'll be down to the ideal weight the vet wants. this food is definitely worth the money!

Metabolic Hills Prescription
My dog has lost weight in the first 10 days. It was 2 pounds. She plays like a puppy and she is 7 years old. She has to lose her belly fat to have a life saving surgery or she will bleed to much. It looks like she is losing weight really fast like the doctor said she would. It is pricey but worth it to save her life. Oh and the cat has his too. He is just plain oh fat and since the dog is on a diet then why not him. lol He loves it and it fills him up. lol Wish the bird had his too because he eats all day long.

Finally a weight loss food that my dog loves to eat!
We rescued our corgi 2 and a half years ago and when we got him he was a sack of lose skin. We were so glad to see him gain weight and look so healthy! Then we started noticing that his weight gain was going too far. Our boney little dog is now a fat dumpling. He has always eaten food like he may never eat again, so cutting back on his food and stopping his treats seemed so mean. We tried other weight loss foods but he either wouldn't eat them at all or they didn't work. Our vet recommend Metabolic and he loves it! Finally a weight loss food that he likes and it even comes with treats. I don't have to be the bad guy and he can lose weight.

I have been working at getting weight off of an obese chihuahua for a couple of years. I saw the advertisement suggesting 20% weight loss in two months and was excited about the possibility so I gave it a shot. I stuck to suggested portions and my chi is finally losing weight. The weight loss was not as significant as I had hoped but my chi is down a pound and the real bonus is the new energy level she is showing. She has reverted back to frisky puppy like behavior:)

I have a beagle who was 15kg. In March 2013 we started her on Metabolic Dry and Canned food and 18 weeks later she was at a healthy weight of 12 kg! This is not a starvation diet, I even cheated and gave her some other treats and she still lost weight.
She is currently still on Metabolic dry and she loves her food. She fluctuates between 12 and 13kg but she is not overweight.

This Food Really Works!!!
My dog had gained an excessive amount of weight after hurting her leg this past year. I took her to a vet and he recommended a trial run with this food. After about 3 months of eating this food my boy has lost a sufficient amount of weight and is doing great.

Bailey had reached her weight loss plateau while on the Prescription Diet R/D. My Vet suggested that we try the Metabolic diet. After just one week on this diet she had increased mobility and activity level. She also is eating this food better and does not seem hungry between feedings.
Bailey is shedding the weight again and feeling good about it!

This food works and the dog loves it.
Teeter is a five year old toy australian shepard that has always had a weight problem. Since we put her on the metabolic weight solution she has lost her weight and been able to stay at her ideal weight.

seems to do the trick
I'm on bag number 2 and my dog has lost about 10 pounds,seems to keep her satisfied, and she is definitely moving around much better, the only drawback is the price, very expensive compared to other regular brands, hopefully she gets down to her ideal weight before summer, so we can go for long walks in the sun.

I have two dogs who both enjoy the Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution.
Fluffer does his happy dance when it is breakfast and dinner time. Fergie is patient but she anticipates her Metabolic meal. I usually give them three small nuggest as an appetizer before I serve them their full meal. Fluffer can't wait and tries to take them from my hand. Their meal is a mix of wet and dry Metabolic Advanced Weighht Solution. Both are now within ideal weight range and loving their diet!

My dog has lost weight!!
I was not sure this food would work for my Beagle mix, Max. He always wants to eat and we cut all food but his other brand healthy weight food and he still did not lose any weight. He actually gained even though he is an active 2 year old with another 2 year old dog in the house. My vet and I discussed giving it a try and we have seen results. I am very happy that my Max is more of a healthy weight. We use it for maintenance now. I just wish it was a little cheaper!

Saved my baby
My Cocker Spaniel Ebony was diagnosed with an auto immune disorder when she was 6 years old. Therefore she took steroids for at least 6 months straight. I am extremely thankful she pulled through however she packed on the pounds. All she wanted to do was eat and sleep. She didn't want to play with our other 3 dogs just do her business and lay on the patio or come inside. I am was extremely concerned so I took her to the vet (they all know us very well) she told me about metabolic diet. I was very skeptical but she is my like my child so I thought ok lets give it a try. They measured her weighed her and gave me a detailed diet of how much to feed and how long it would take for her to lose the weight...we went for monthly weigh ins and to my surprise in 6 months she went from 44 lbs to 34 lbs!! Ebony will be 9 this year and I haven't seen her this happy in years, playing and running around just like her brothers and sister!!! I would definitely recommend this diet!

My 9 year old male bichon was 46 pounds in June-way overweight according to the vet- he was put on the Metabolic dry, canned and treats at that time for his health, and by December was down 14 pounds. He is now very active, and looks quite svelte! Thank you to Hills, he is now back to his old self! We also have kept him on this product for maintenance and he's doing great.
Thank you Hills for making this product!

The best food that helped out dog
Leo, our 8 year old Weimerainer, had gained quite a bit and the vet suggested that we put Leo on food. Leo weighed 109 lbs. He now weighs 94 lbs in 4 months. He has more energy and likes going for longer walks now. Thank you.

Finally, my pets aren't fat!
Two of my dogs have been struggling for years to lose weight. We've tried several prescription diets, but nothing has worked like Hill's Metabolic. My 12 year old is fit for the first time in 6 years and he gets to eat more than he has with any other diet. And it must tastes great...even my cats try to steal kibble from the dogs.

Great food for my Dog!

Tug Boat is losing weight!
We have a 2 year old Giant Alaskan Malamute who had Cruciate ligament surgery 2012 and were told he would needed this other leg done in 2013. Both his parents were 170lbs and we kept Tug Boat lean at 145 knowing the surgery would come up. What a surprised we received when we were toldTug needed a total hip replacement! They referred us to a specialist 5 hours away. The specialist agreed with the prognosis however he won't do the surgery until he weighed 115. I thought impossible as Tug Boat stood at my waist and I am 5'6. My hometown vet recommended Metabolic. I was so skeptical, and called the company directly. This wonderful rep explained how much I could feed per day of wet and dry combination. Too my surprise it was almost double what he was currently receiving. After 2 months we went to the vet to get him weighed and he lost 12 pounds! He actually has more energy and doesn't seem to be as sore as he used to be. My vet is amazed as he never considered Tug overweight. If anyone has any doubts, try it! Follow the guidelines and there is no reason your dog should not lose weight. Don't be fooled with ads and commercials on "premium" dog foods and that their ingredients are better. This time I followed my vets advice and its working! Tug Boat should reach his goal by March, a goal I thought was impossible! He looks fantastic, energetic and happy! Thank you for a great product and fantastic customer service!

My dog likes this food!
My vet put my dog on a diet because he was "way too fluffy" as she described him. She said her other clients' dogs liked the taste, which I was skeptical of. However, my dog likes this food. I mix it with warm water sometimes, and other times, he eats it dry. Being he is only prescribed 1/3 cup morning and night, which doesn't look like much, he has definitly lost weight, and his overall shape has changed. He is due for his first weigh-in, which I am excited to see how much weight he has lost.

My French Bulldog had put on some weight and our vet suggested switching her food to Hills Pet metabolic. She has lost 2 plus pounds and gobbles up the food like its a steak!
Her breathing has improved with the weight loss and she looks beautiful.
Thank you for making such a great product.

This food has saved my dog's life
We have a 10 yr old beagle-basset hound mix who was very overweight at 68.1 lbs. He has always been very lazy, but we noticed that he could no longer get on the couch to cuddle & couldn't even wag his tail. After a visit to our vet we were told that Charger's quality of life & lifespan was in serious trouble if we didn't get some weight off of him. They recommended the metabolic dog food. To date, he has lost 22.7 lbs & now weighs 45.4 lbs. and acts like a different dog! He has pep in his step & gets so excited about mealtime. I am positive that with this weight loss (his target weight is 30.5 lbs.) he will have more years in his life & added life to those years. THANK YOU for developing this life changing food!!

Good weight reduction product
I have a bulldog whose name is Gus. In February 2013 he weighted 90 pounds and was starting to have physical/health problems. Our vet recommended that we needed to put him on a diet and he recommended your food. As of November 2013 he weights 73 pounds. Gus is a lot more active, doesn't snore as much and he looks great. I attribute his weight lost and his increased activity to your product. I think product is a little expensive but in most cases we have been able to reduce the cost by using coupons. Gus and I say thank you.

This food saved my dog's life... Literally!
Last year, my 5 year old Puggle, who had ALWAYS been in phenomenal health, took a rapid turn for the worst when he experienced an intestinal blockage that almost blew up his stomach. After a round of medicine, my vet recommended the Metabolic food to restore his digestive system and get him to a healthy weight. This food changed my dog's life. He is now healthier, happier, and more fit than ever... And... He's never had another digestive issue since he started eating it! This is great food. I recommend it 100%!

I have been using this food for about 3 months now and it has changed by 7 year old Lab. I was worried about buying expensive diet when I new that he would still be recieving extra goodies but this diet works awesome. I work at a Veterinary Hospital and I'm recommending it to all fat dog and cats. I wish they could make something like this for humans!!!!!! Thank you Hill's for making a diet that is simple to feed.
