Rated 5 out of 5 by Andahawk 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!

by ajcameron11 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!

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.

by Lisec65 Good product!
My dachshund needed to loose about two pounds. Doesn't sound like much, but it is to a little one. My Vet carries Hills products. He recommended the dry metabolic. After about three months Micro is holding steady at a desirable 14 lbs. He loves Hill's and I plan to keep him on it for the rest of his life. Great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JessieJo The food did what it is suppose to do. My dog loves it and she lost the weight.
While the food is excellent, I am very disappointed that you chose to change packaging to this heavy plastic bag that will never breakdown in landfills. I would prefer you improved the paper and plastic bag instead.
Being on a fixed income with a 100 pound Golden to feed, I wish the food was less costly. It really hits the monthly budget.

Molly is a 9 year old beagle. She had a weight problem from the beginning. We have been feeding her weight management brand for a couple years. She has dropped about 7 to 8 pounds. She has a hard time keeping her weight down. This product has help her to keep the weight down and stay there. I would recommend this product to anyone who is having weight issues with their dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dolphin Absolutely amazing results!!!
My pet Sam is my best friend. A loyal,affectionate, smart amazing pet. Boarder collie/ lab mix. He is now 7 and we have had him since he was a pup. As he got older he started to put on weight. Before we knew it he was up to 105 lbs!! He has never eaten people food and always had plenty of excercise. After taking him to the vet he was put on thyroid medication and started on Hills Prescription Diet Metabolic in February of this year. Now into September his weight is down to 82.5lbs!!!!!!! I am truely amazed. His life has changed. The food is amazing. The results are amazing! The weight loss is a direct result of Hills Prescription Diet. I tried other diet foods prior to this with no results. I am truely thankful to Hills for the quality and nutrition in their pet foods. Without that who knows what may have happened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by snoball Standard Dachshund Loses 10 pounds on Hill's Metabolic!!!
We put our dog on Hill's Metabolic several months ago and never thought she would lose weight since nothing else had worked for her, but we gave it a try as she was carrying too much weight. We had tried everything to get her to lose weight. Well yesterday I took her in for a weigh-in since she was beginning to look so slim and we needed a new bag of food. Our vet was thrilled. So I will tell anyone who has had trouble getting weight off their dogs, this is the answer!! Thank you for an excellent product!!

Our dog Lexi is a longhaired miniature Dachshund that is nearly 9 yrs old. In March, 2013, she was overweight at 16.9 lbs. The vet put her on the dry Hills Prescription Diet. The weight loss was so dramatic. Her weight is quite stable at 11.5 lbs now. We recently introduced the canned wet chicken stew that we mix with the dry. What a happy little girl. She loves it! Carrots, peas, meat, rice & gravy. We are very pleased with the products. She loves it! And we appreciate the coupons that we utilize from the website too. Thank you.

We have 2 Shelties. Ages 10 and 8. They both use Hill's Brand food. I would recommend this to any pet owner, however, I have not found the particular type of food we use at any pet store. We have to buy from the Vet. Would be nice to be able to buy elsewhere.

This product really works! My dog loves the taste and I would much rather give him food to maintain a healthy weight versus giving him a pill. Although it is very pricey and sometimes a $3 off coupon doesn't seem quite enough. But it does work well.

Since my dog has be eating the Metabolic dry dog food he has lost weight. Our Vet put my dog on this food because he was over weight, suffered from gas and stomach problems now he has no upset stomach with less gas, he is at a normal weight and over-all he is much happier and is more active.
I would highly recommend this dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuvMy2Dogs Helped Both of My Dogs
We have a 4 year old Golden and 8 year old Pointer/Border Collie Mix. Both of them should be 70 lbs per the vet. They transitioned to this food easily and it's been effective for both of them. 8 yo is now at her ideal weight and on maintenance, while the Golden still has about 7 lbs to go.
Our vet commended us on following the feeding guidelines and making the accomplishments we did - Said we should be poster candidates as they have a lot of people who buy the food, but don't follow directions and their pets don't lose weight. Instead of dog treats, we give them frozen green beans, chunks of raw carrot and apple etc. per vets suggestion. Too many goodies and/or table scraps can put the weight on. We all become a bit more sedentary in the winter, but with this food it's easy to control weight.
The cost can be prohibitive to some, but it really works. I wish the company would reduce the cost some to make it more affordable for everyone. Our vet is great about providing coupons and a buy 10 get 1 free program. It truly works!

This metabolic Diet Dog Dry food is phenomenal such a great product. Helps their digestive and has a noticeable result is dogs weight loss as well.
Disappointed that it is so expensive because I feel more dogs would have a better option to be able to experience better health that they deserve. Especially for us people who save multiple dogs from the kind of lives they were subjected to.
Have tried several diet dog food and this one I noticed results in a few months.

My dog has been on Metabolic for 3 years now. He is a Golden Retriever who loves to "snack". The Vet recommended this product after he went over 90 pounds. His weight now around 84, but he is a big Golden. He eats 1 1/2 cups in morning and 1 1/2 in evening and doesn't realize that his" treats " are actually his Metabolic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Abby79 My dog would not eat the food.
My dog just would not eat the food. She tried it the first night and spit it back out at me. I have a small dog and the food bits were too big for her. She also did not like the taste. She went outside and ate grass for four days. I called the vet on the fifth day of her not eating anything he told me to feed her the food she was eating before because it was unsafe to go that long and her not eating. I ended up taking the food back to get my money back. If you have a dog with a small mouth that need small bit's or a picky eater I would skip trying this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by miatennis 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.
