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!

Saved me $4,000 surgery fee
I have a (now 11 year old) Peek-A-Poo was weighed 11.4lb back in April of this year. Her back knee caps were dislocating when she ran or even walked. She needed to have surgery on both knees ($2,000 ea.) or lose weight They wanted her down to 8lbs. They recommended Hills RD dry dog food. 1/4 cup in the morning and 1/8 cup in the evening and to cut down on treats.
She is now 8.8lbs and losing, treats have been cut back and her knees are fine. Not a single problem now. Boy can she run!

Good but expensive
Our big 11 year old had no interest in her previous food and was listless and appeared sickly. Switching to Prescription Diet brought back her vitality and made her eat again. For that we are grateful, unfortunately it comes at an extravagant price.

Science Diet Low Calorie works great
Our Vet recommended the Low Calorie food for our aging cocker spaniel and she loves it. She lost 12 lbs during the year. She is 13 years old and used to weigh 45 lbs, but after we put her on prescription low calorie, she now weighs 33 lbs and is full of energy.
We love it and purchase it from our Vet.

My cockapoo could not lose weight but the vet said to feed her 1/2 cup a day as well as the pumpkin and wet food. She has lost 3 lbs - I am amazed so we will be continuing on it and recommending it to others.

This product has helped our Shelby lose about 25 pounds.
Using this food twice a day, one cup a.m. and p.m., and taking our lab to her day care center twice a week where she can play and swim, she dropped from 100 obs. to about 77 lbs.
We are at a plateau and are hoping for her to drop about 5 more lbs.

Taste too good
I have three dogs and only one is slightly overweight. So only one is on the dog food. But they all want to eat it! So I have to mix a few pieces into the other dogs food so they don't fight for the poor dog's food who is on a diet.

It did the job !!!
My chihuahua was overweight so her vet put her on this diet. She seemed to really enjoy the flavor & it worked well for her. She went from 11 lbs. to 7.5 lbs. and is now on the Hills Prescription Diet Maintenance Food.

This product has been helping both of my German Shepherd/Blue Heeler mixes lose weight. They have been on the diet for ~2wks, and we are starting to see a bit of a difference. They both enjoy the taste as well!

Great food, my pet has lost weight after 4 weeks, but is pricey.
When I took my dog in to the Vets I found out he was really over weight. I took a sample of the Prescription r/d weight loss food home and my dog really liked it. I have continued to feed him the food and he is losing weight very well. I had gotten in to a bad habit of feeding him people food as well as his own food, since I have corrected the bad habits he is losing weight and is feeling a lot better! He is enjoying our walks again and playing with his cat buddy again. I will continue to purchase this dog food for him. I do appreciate the coupons and I make sure to use them!! Thank you!!

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 food really works in controlling our dogs weight in a HEALTHY way. He loves it!!

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.

You get what you pay for
It is costly dog food to purchase but overall has a great result in the end. less food and weight loss achieved.

Small bites, appears to have a great taste
Since starting my dog on this food, as suggested by my vet, my pet has lost 30 pounds. He appears to be much healthier.

Dog loves this product but the cost has gone way too high. I am looking for an alternative product at a lower price

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.
