Hill's® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Canine
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.

One of my small dogs was overweight. The DVM prescribed Metabolic Diet for him. We had great results. Now all of our dogs are on it for maintenance. It is expensive, but certainly worth it.

Great Dog Food
Both my dogs love this dry food! My overweight Dixie is losing weight. My just right mix breed is holding strady.
So glad my vet suggested it.

An effective weight loss program
My dog has always been approximately ten pounds above what he should be since he's been a pup. I tried cutting back on his portions and exercised him more but couldn't seem to lose those stubborn pounds. So when the vet recommended this food and claimed that dogs have lost weight with the food, I was skeptical. I thought I would try it. After 1 month, my dog lost 3 pounds but still not enough for me to continue using the food. But I kept him on it for the next six months and now it has been 9 months and my dog is consistently 8 pounds lighter and seems satisfied with the food.

Making a new dog out of an old one
I took in a 10 year old Sheltie that weighed 32lbs. He looked like a square box walking on toothpicks and was so heavy that the day I brought him home he collapsed after walking about 10 feet into the yard - I thought I'd killed him! I started feeding him Metabolic diet and the pounds just melted off. He turned 12 in April and at a svelte 23 lbs he runs across the yard, chases squirrels and is happy to have a new lease on life.
Way to go Metabolic Diet!

I use this food to maintain my dogs weight and it works great. I feed it to all 4 of my dogs.

This stuff really works!
I am a veterinary technician and recommend the Metabolic diet to our clients all the time, because I believe in it and I have personally seen the positive results! I had my own dog on this diet when it first was released to our clinic. He lost 5 pounds in the first 2 weeks and continued to lose for a total of almost 20 pounds. His everyday life improved. He became more energetic, got around much easier, and was much healthier. I've seen so many other people benefit from this food improving their pets qualify of life. I'm a huge believer in the Metabolic diet, and I always will be!

Excellent for weight loss and maintenance after weight loss.
The metabolic diet has proven several times that it can help the pets lose weight and keep it off. It does so in a reasonable amount of time and safely. I am excited to see how this continues with the Metabolic + Mobility going forward.

i love this product
My 8 yr. old beagle female, Katie, went on a diet with this food as prescribed by her vet. She loved the taste of it and it filled her up. She was also able to have a treat worked into her diet so she could enjoy that with her other fur-siblings. She actually got 2 pounds under her goal weight! We had her on another diet with another brand of food and she was always hungry and it took a lot longer to lose weight. With the Hills food she easily lost the weight she needed to. S
he is a different dog now. She plays with her friends Elliot (beagle) and Gus (boston terrier) Gus is my sons dog and Katie hated it when he was here. Now she runs and plays with him instead of staying on the couch being mad. I have no doubt that this food will lengthen her life and make her healthier. It is a bit pricey but how can you put a price on a beautiful,healthy,happy beagle princess! I highly recommend this food if you dog needs to trim down. You will not be disappointed.

Alfie , my beagle / pug can eat all day if you let him. He's 5 years old this May and is the most gorgeous boy ever.
He reached 21.9KG and was way too heavy. We had to lose weight for a trip to and from Europe from Sydney.
The food was amazing . He "easily" moved to his correct weight of 14.9Kg !!
He still pines for food and would continue to hunt for food so it doesn't really fill him but he is healthy and fit and the correct weight now and that's what I most happy about.
It's just a pity is is SO expensive here in Oz!!

Golden Retriever is not a fussy eater but would rather starve than eat this food. Went two days walking away from her bowl. I finally had to give up. Gave it to my puggle who ate it and later puked it up. Not very impressed with this product. It was a fresh bag from the local veterinarian.

I've been feeding our slightly fluffy lab the Metabolic Dry diet for over a year. The results are wonderful. Grace's weight loss has been slow, but steady. The dry seems very palatable and filling. The Metabolic treats are a big hit...Grace looks for one as her bedtime snack.
I will be transparent, it would be great if the cost wasn't so large that once I pay for a bag, my pocket book has lost quite a bit too...
Thank you Hill's for a wonderful product...

My Dog loves the food
My little 10lb dog loves the Metabolic food flavor but has difficulty with the size of the kibble. I wish they made a small bites kibble for little dogs.

Rusty 19.8 pounds to 10.4 pounds
My dog Rusty a Dachshund/terrier mix suffered with back problems and was extremely over weight. We didn't feed him table food but the food we were feeding him wasn't the best. My vet ( Dr Neal) highly recommended Metabolic, I followed Dr Neals instructions and only fed Metabolic along with Metabolic treats. My precious Rusty has lost almost half his body weight in less than 2 years. We haven't had any back problems, he has so much energy. .Thanks Hills Prescription.

I tried several different diet food for our Pomeranian and none of them worked till i started feeding them Prescription Diet® Canine Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution Dry from Hills. They have lost the extra pounds they had put on and are now holding a healthy and normal weight. I would recommend it to anyone who is having trouble controlling their pets weight. Plus Hills has a excellent consumers affairs department that will answer any questions you have about their product. Thanks to Hills my pets are healthier now. Great product.

This food really helps!!
I work as a veterinary technician and see over weight/obese pets all day long. I have a dog myself, that is a bit overweight. I decided to put her on this diet to see how things would work before recommending it to any clients. When I saw her increase of energy, and her waistline coming back, I knew it was great! It is a long term food, which makes it even better to use! Most would get their pets down a bit, and then put them back on their regular food and they would pack it all back on. With this, I have several patients (dogs and cats) on it. There is one patient that tops the charts. He is an almost 10 year old lab that has already had both knees surgically repaired, and has been obese pretty much his entire life. In 2009, was his last year of being under 100lbs. Since then, he topped out at 124lbs. He is believed to have a genetic issue, as his litter mate was as well (and ended up passing away) and the owners 2 new pups (now a year old) are also overweight with a strict feeding plan. The first 4 months, were a struggle. He LOVED the food, but he wasn't really loosing anything. After that, the weight started falling off. He came in the other day, he was down to 98lbs!! He hasn't been that light in 5 1/2 years!! He is jumping on the counters now, his energy level is helping him keep up with the puppies and he is a MUCH happier dog. The owners go on and on about how different he is every time we see them, and they are in all the time with their other 2 dogs and their cat that just had a leg amputation. I can not say enough good things about the food! The taste is amazing to them, and they do NOT have the dry poops that other diets give them.

Camo is a leaner weiner dog
My dachshund Camo is a tween doxie that got up to 25 lbs. Our vet suggested Metabolic wet to begin our weight loss journey. Over six months, Camo dropped to 17 lbs which we have pretty much maintained. We have switched him over to Metabolic Dry now for maintenance. This product works and Camo really enjoys the taste. Would definitely recommend to pet owners with overweight dogs.

This product works
My dog was extremely overweight for her size, she is suppose to weigh between 8-10 lbs and she got up to 16.9 lbs. We tried a variety of different "weight" loss dog foods, and nothing worked until now. She has been on the metabolic since February of this year, and she has lost 3 lbs. Doesn't seem like a huge amount, but for her size it is a lot, she is more active and actually plays with the other dogs, where before all she did was sit on the couch and watch. She has a few more pounds to go, and I know it doesn't work over night, but this is the only dog food that has actually worked for her.

My dog likes the taste.
My dog has lost weight using this product. It is slow, but the vet says that is good. His normal routine has not changed much other than he is climbing stairs better and can now jump up on our bed again. He didn't do that for a while.

My dog lost 46#
My bloodhound has been on this food for about a year and has lost 46# it works!

My pets love eating this food. Usually they are grazers, but since being on the metabolic plan they are waiting for dinner time and eat promptly. Both of my dogs are on this and have gorgeous coats. We utilze this food to help with weight loss. The "light" food gave my dog stool like a horse and they would need to go in the middle of the night. Now their stool is regular.
