Hill's® Prescription Diet® r/d® Canine Weight Loss-Low Calorie
This is the only product for my dog
My min-pin is a diabetic and my vet prescribed this for her. She has been on it for years and is doing very good for her. I really thank you for the coupon I found on your site since the price of your food has increased in price and decreased in size. Thank you again for helping me keep my baby around a lot longer with your good food for her condition.

This is an excellent, well balanced food for dogs.
We own 4 geriatric dachsunds, ages from 9-15. All of them were overweight and 3 of the 4 were experiencing back and hip problems. Our vet recommended this dog food after our youngest had a vestibular stroke. Two weeks after they began their new dog food all had lost 2 pounds each. Its been a month now and all of our dogs are behaving like puppies again. They have lost between 3-5 lbs. and their coats are shiny and soft. We always thought they were pretty healthy but the changes in their behavior and looks is astonishing. Thank you so much for their amazing makeover and their improved quality of life!

It helps take the weight off but do not like feeding by-product meal.

Prescription diet food it great!
My min pincher has been on this for over two years now. She has lost six pounds was 19 lbs now 13 lbs. I also give her some of the wet diet can food. She is losing slowly and very healthy. If I could get my husband to quit the treats I'm sure she would have lost more. She should be 10 lbs. She was a rescue dog.

Dogs like it but it's a bit pricey
Our first dog had to start eating R/D because of his weight issues. When we got our second dog we decided to have him eat the same food. It must taste good because they've been eating it for 10+ years. The only issue is the price. It is awfully expensive, but I haven't shopped for other dog food so I'm not sure how comparable the price is with other diet brands. Thankfully, Hill's website allows you to download a coupon BUT are very restrictive when doing so. I think they should provide some type of rewards program for their long-time customers.

no more sensitive stomach
My dog's weight is fine, but she has a sensitive stomach, and this food agrees with her. She loves it, and doesn't eat grass anymore.

really works well
really works on weight control and can serve almost as much as dog requires. 150 lbs. Newfoundland. Been using it for years. Only wish that Hines would quit reducing bag poundage and increasing price.

This product really works!
I use both the dry and canned r/d for my dog and she has lost the weight she needed to and maintained the weight for 3 years.
This has been a very effective product and she likes it.

I love this product.
My husband caused my dog to become overweight by feeding too much human and pet food, after he passed away, I tried several different foods to try to help her loose weight and nothing worked. Since she has been on the Hill Science diet prescription metabolic dogfood, her weight loss has been slow but steady. Which I find amazing because of her knee injury and surgery she has had limited mobility, but still is loosing weight. This is a before photo of Millie at her top weight of 97lbs. She is now at 75lbs but still has a ways to go.

My dog likes this food
I feel this product is high priced and you won;t allow customers to print more coupons for these products. I am considering buying a different brand of food which I would not like to do because my dog really likes your food.

Hills R/D has really helped my dogs lose weight. They also seem to really like it. It's a little spendy but it is worth it to keep the fat off my dogs.

Great product but extremely expensive.
This seems to be a good product and has helped our lab lose weight but is very expensive. I would give this 5 stars except the cost caused me to give it 4.

My Pug is my baby and I only feed him the best because I want a healthy pet that will be part of our family for many many years. He is 11 years old and he has energy and is in great health. Good food means a longer happier healthier life

Good for Dog But a Little Pricey
Both our dogs have been using R/D for years. One had a weight problem, and when we got the other one we just started him on it. Obviously they enjoy the taste because they let us know when it's feeding time.
The biggest issue is the cost. I highly recommend going to Hill's website to download the coupon before purchasing your supply. Just remember Hill's limits their coupons but now does allow me to print different ones for the dog food and the cat food. A while back they didn't allow that. To my knowledge the website is the only place to get the coupon.
It would be nice if they provided some kind of loyalty points for long-term customers.

This product has proven to be very beneficial for my boxer
Our boxer was diagnosed with a thyroid issue. He was gaining weight rapidly. He also had a slight cancer issue and our vetenarian placed him on a steroid medication. This medication caused him to have very loose bowel movements. The vet prescribed R/D due to its fiber and nutrients. Our boxer enjoys this food and the loose bowel problem has ceased due to your product.

Years of Success
I have owned doxies for years and have always been pretty vigilant with weight control... until I adopted Ms. Jasmine. After back surgery at age 2, we had to address it. Since her first diet in which she lost 2.5 pounds reaching a 10.5 pounds goal using R/D, she has had difficulty finding any light/diet food to maintain her weight long term without drastic restriction. (I have tried a number of premium brands over 3 or 4 years.) It's very frustrating to gain even when on a diet program.
We have found a happy balance that is somewhat of a YoYo diet. When she gets about 1-1.5 pounds overweight, we go to R/D and she always looses successfully. We then move back to W/D for 6-8 months as the weight creeps on. Then it is back to R/D. This has worked for about 5 years if not longer.
She would rather eat W/D, but once we ease her into the R/D she tolerates it after complaining a bit the first week or so. It is pack with fiber, so keep the scoop handy.
Without R/D as a successful diet option for this doxie, her weight loss plan would be so restrictive, she would never be satisfied...or satisfied as a doxy can be. Hands down, I would recommend this if nothing seems to work. It is pricey, but worth it for my small dog.
She recently was placed on lower calorie Hills food to prevent crystals in her urine, but her crept up faster than normal even feeding less than recommended amount....Now we have 2 pounds to lose, a bit more than we are used to.
I am excited to try Hills new Metabolic Solution as a combined weight loss and management solution for our newest weight possibility. It will be nice to not have to switch foods and maintain weight only using amounts. At first bit, she likes it better than R/D, no evil looks or pouting so far. I will give 1 bag a try, if no results we will go back to the proven routine.

My Pet loves the food and gobbles it up.
My dog is normally a very fussy eater who needs to loose weight and I was amazed how well he adopted to this food and loved every morsel of it.

RD dry Dog food works, but too expensive.
I will look for something comparable at a pet store for less money. No reason it has to be that expensive for a DIET food.

Chubby Dog? This WORKS!
My 5 y/o Italian Greyhound was carrying extra weight and the Vet recommended I try Metabolic. I was afraid the dog would refuse to eat it but, to my surprise she gobbles it up twice a day and gets excited just hearing the bag open! She's lost half of the excess weight in just months and still going. My dog does not enjoy being outdoors - zooms out to potty then zooms right back inside, even on beautiful days - so we needed help with a restrictive diet since exercise isn't on her agenda. Metabolic is great! Pricey, but great... 1/2 C. twice a day has done her wonders. I will continue to buy this product.

This product has helped our 14 year old Golden Retriever maintain his weight even though he is less active because of his age
Excellent product, a little pricey but it is what we need to help out dog maintain his weight in his advanced age. I would recommend this product to people who have dogs that are overweight and are less active. By following the directions, you will see results in your dogs weight loss yet he will maintain his overall health due to the quality of the food
