My dog lost the weight!
Hills Rd dry dog food help my beagle to lose 12 lbs.so far. She has about 10 more to go since she was very obese. You need to follow the feeding guidelines and can adjust them accordingly. Be careful with treats. Mine gets one ricecake a day. Also exercise is very important since my dog is a house dog she gets her daily walk. I wish this food was more affordable since it is pricey.

This product is great for weight loss.
I started this food a couple of months ago. My dog, Jake, loves the taste. He was over double his size and since he has been eating the metabolic diet his weight has been decreasing so he breathes better, is more awake and all in all much better for it. My problem with it, is the cost. It really is too expensive. I understand the benefits but I will only keep him on it until his weight loss goal is achieved and that is only because of the cost.

I didn't beleive this food would work
My bulldog has protein losing enteropathy and my vet recommend Hill's® Prescription Diet® r/d. My first thought was with the protein losing enteropathy he lost 25 pounds, he didn't need to lose any more weight he was very sick and could not keep any food in him, he would eat and 10 minutes later we would have to run outside. We then tried Hill's® Prescription Diet® r/d and within 3 days he was holding his food and didn't have to run to the bathroom! In the 7 months since we have been using the Hill's® Prescription Diet® r/d he has gained all the weight back he lost. There is no cure for protein losing enteropathy but at least he can maintain it with this food. Thank you Hill's for making a food that the protein is broken down enough that my bullies body doesn't have to break it down.

The product has good features.
The small bites are good for both my dogs. The food smells so good I would like to try it. The dogs go nuts and meal times. They follow me to where the food is kept and just wait until their bowls are filled before going nuts. This food has also been great in keeping their weight under control.

Although expensive - so are veterinary bills!
This quality dog food does as it states: helps your dog lose weight in a managed, safe way.
My dog has gone on this food 3 times in his life, as he has a medical condition that makes it difficult for him to lose weight. Now that he's had ACL surgery - the weight MUST stay down or his other knee will surely go as well.
Ignore the pet food analysis website that claims this food is too high in corn, and is sub-standard food. PHOOEY. They should have to prove their claims, or risk being sued in my book. THIS FOOD SAVES DOGS' LIVES. Period.
Not all dogs are fat because they have lazy owners (albeit that is the prime cause along with overfeeding) - some have medical conditions.
My dog loves the taste of this food, his stools are finally firm (although it does an increase in stool output), and the weight loss comes at a steady, measurable pace.
This food has been a success. My dog's average weight loss when using this food is about 12 lbs, and then he plateaus. I do not feed the rec'd ammount on the label, as that was still too much. I DO supplement his food now with another refrigerated food product so as to add some variation to his diet, which has not caused his weight to increase or any other changes.
I highly recommend you discuss using this food with your pet. It has proven itself safe and effective (my dog's lab work is normal and healthy).

This food is enjoyed by both my Labradors!
My oldest Labrador has had ACL replacements in both legs. She can't carry any extra weight and it's very important that she eat well. The surgical vet recommended Science Diet Prescription for her several years ago and that's all she eats. I also have another lab whose 4 years old and she gets this, too. They both love it and I feel good that they're getting a healthy diet.
