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!

Gave Ringo new life.
I adopted Ringo at 14 years of age, at that time he weighed 75 lbs and had little inclination to move. We figured we were giving him a place to live out his last few months. After 1 year of feeding a strict measured diet, he was down to 43 lbs. At his new weight, he was much more energetic, much to my cats dismay. We are now 3 years later and he keeps on trucking. We did transition him to another diet to help his arthritis after his weight loss success. Thanks for helping us give quality life to an old man.

Product works as promised…dog loses weight!
Although a somewhat expensive product, this dry dog food accomplishes the goal of weight reduction while keeping dog satisfied that they have a full stomach. For a real "chow hound" (this dog happens to be a Chow), it is an essential part of keeping her healthy.

This product is great but hard to keep on one dog when you have multiple.
Overall the product is good, we recommend it at my work for over weight pets, we have seen some good results with our patients especially the one who other diets didn't work.

Must taste good cause he likes it
I give this to my Doxie and he loves it. I also give him the wet food as well with his evening feeding I take a teaspoon of wet food and mix into his dry ( removing some of the dry to make up for the wet) He loves this food. I am seeing an improvement in his weight. I will check his weight for sure.

Very good product but very expensive
The product does what is expected to do but for a family that can't afford the amount of money that is required, I could see pet owners taking another avenue for their pets.

Works well but not sure about ingredients.
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.
