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!

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 dog is a diabetic. He loves the WD wet & dry. The only thing is i wish on the label on all brands they would have sugar amount, like on people food. Other than that love the WD

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

I had adopted three Rescue Boxers- since my now 9 year old was a little oveweight ( 120 pounds- but he is a very large dog) my vets put him on the R/D diet food - which he "passed" swiftly . Three years ago we took in a then 14 year old boxer boy- he was not doing well and nobody would adopt him, so, we did. He like most boxers, had artheritis and it was not easy for him to balance and "pass" the food , so, I put him on my other dogs r/d food and it was great- he was never constipated and had no problems balancing- we just lost him right before Christmas at the age of 17 !!

Works well for losing weight
The product works well in the long term for losing weight. My dog gobbles it down

I really like the Prescription Diet Dog food. Our boxer has a lot of stomach issues so it was hard to find a food that wouldnt make her sick. We stuck with a brand that we thought was organic and good for her but actually had loads of calories and ended up making her gain a lot of weight. She has only been on Prescription Diet for 3 weeks and has already lost 4 pounds and she enjoys it and it doesnt make her sick!

Great for Dog, But Expensive
Because of weight issues one of our dogs has been on R/D for 10 years. We have two dogs and even though he doesn't need it, the other dog eats R/D, too (10 years). The one issue I used to have was that I could only purchase it at the vet, but now I can buy it at a popular pet store because they have vets on-site.
The problem remains, though, that it is expensive. Thankfully, Hill's website allows you to download a coupon but they are VERY strict in how often you can download them. I'm quite impressed with their level of security (for lack of a better term), and thankful that I can get at least $7 off a large bag of the R/D, but come on, it's dog food! I've searched online and I can't find any other coupons available. Since they are so strict it would be nice if there was some type of loyalty program that offers long-term customers special discounts. (hint, hint)

My dog has lost weight with this product.
My dog's weight is down, however I feel this food is pretty expensive. I do not know how the taste is my dog eats it but she eats some very weird things and seems to like them also.I find that it has an offensive smell to me, but overall am happy with it. I would like it better if I could print a coupon every time that I bought the food.
January 24, 2014
excellent product, however, would like to see more coupons.
My dog is a family member. He is 14 years old (human years). Moustache evens sneezes like a human. He has a thyroid condition and other dog food brands helped him to gain weight which he did not need to do. He now thrives since his vet placed him on Hill's Prescription Diet for weight loss. He is satisfied after each one cup serving (breakfast/lunch/dinner#. His vet is now pleased with his weight. I am so thankful to Hill's for this great product. Signed Moustache #'roof-roof.)

New 10 year Old Dog!
I changed my dogs food because she was sluggish and overweight. She lost over 10 lbs with the first 2-3 months and her energy level kicked up like a puppy. After 9 months on the food I thought I could go back to her old food and did for 1 month. She not only gained weight, her energy level dropped and arthritis seemed to set in? She is back to the R/D and all is doing so well. I really believe in this food and so thankful to my vet for recommending. More coupons please!!

Great product to recommend
I had to put my corgi on r/d to lose weight, and when he was put on r/d, he was able to lose weight successfully. I am able to let our clients know how great the product does work with doctor's recommendations

All the dogs want the diet food
My dog has been put on the R/D diet food for weight loss. So I have to give him a certain amount of food a day to help with weight loss. Well with 3 others at home they all want to eat his food and look forward to it as a "treat". Which when they do this makes him what to "show off" and eat his food in front of them as if to say this is mine and you can't have it. Just like true children!!!

Our dog loves it.
Our 8 year old Golden Retriever was on RD for about three years and was always at the right weight. We then tried a cheaper brand dog food and he ballooned in weight and was not very active. We then switched him back about 9 months ago and he is back down to the right weight and keeps up with our 2 year old Australian Shepard. We would recommend this for any dog.

Expensive, but great if you stick to the diet of this food only.
I have been buying this product for my little black pug since he was 3 years old. He is now 12 years old. Oliver (my pug) was 23 lbs when I got him and he went down to 15 lbs using only R/D prescription diet. He now weighs 18 lbs cause we give him too much table food. It is expensive, but a great product if you stick to the diet of this food only to achieve weight loss.

I'm a proud owner of an 11 year old, standard dachshund, Buddy. Buddy has been eating Hill's Prescription Diet r/d for 10 1/2 years. He loves this product and I swear by it. It's been a big help in keeping him slim and trim. Now if there was only a Hill's Prescription Diet r/d for dog owners...
