Weight Management

Just like the human epidemic, almost 50% of the pet population is overweight. Even a little extra weight can impact the pet's quality of life and relationship with family because that extra weight can reduce play time, impact mobility and affect the lifelong general health of your dog.

Hill's nutritionists & veterinarians developed Prescription Diet® Metabolic clinical nutrition specially formulated to support your dog's weight management. In fact, 88% of pets lost weight at home in 2 months with the nutrition of Metabolic.

This product meets and exceeds all my expectations. My 16 year old dashound loves he taste and I love the fact that it is always easy to cleanup as well as the tip top shape and health he seems to be in at this age. He has been eating it for about a year and his overall health and weight seem to have improved tremendously. We both love this dog food. He has lost some teeth and this is easy for him to eat as well. Great product.! April 17, 2014
Great Change My two Pomeranians (Female 13 years) (Male 9 years) have been eating Prescription Diet RD for about 5 years. They have been given Canned RD in the mornings, and Dry RD in the evenings. Two weeks ago when I went to my Vet for dog food, I was advised that RD is no longer available but has been replaced by Metabolic for weight loss and maintenance. I was very concerned because both dogs are very sensitive to changes in their diet. Seemingly having no other choice I purchased the Metabolic (both dry and canned). I am still amazed at their response to this change. They both love the canned food and get really excited at mealtimes. More importantly, neither dog has had any negative effects from the change relative to their droppings. I am pleasantly surprised and pleased by this change from Hills. My dogs act like they are being fed filet mignon. By the way, they like both the dry food as well as the canned, and treats. Thanks Hills April 17, 2013
If I didn't see it with my own eyes, I would have never believed! My extremely spoiled and my very over weight, but I still call her "pleasingly-plump" poodle won't eat nothing but people food and a little bit of Hill's regular food when she is very hungry just blew my mind today. She is 5 years old and has NEVER scarfed down dog food. She is very heavy (should weigh 6 lbs but weighs 11) and is having trouble breathing and walking. So I decided I MUST do something for her health. I bought this food and the snacks today. I came home from work and fed her the Vet recommended amount and the girl absolutely inhaled this food. I noticed when I was cutting it up for her that it had a pleasant aroma for dog food. OK, when she ate that she was hanging out at the kitchen as I was fixing dinner waiting for me to drop something - lol. So I asked her if she wanted a snack, and of course, the answer was YES! So I then gave her a metobolic treat. She took it to her favorite bed and guarded it with her life (from her sister who is a maltese). She is still sitting there gaurding her snack and it is an hour later. This tells me that not only did the metabolic food fill her up when she ate it, but that she wants the snack and is too full to it. I would sooooo recommend this product to folks that need to help their babies breath better and walk easier (Peaches' knees lock and buckle because she is so obese). Thanks Hills for these wonderful products....They are worth their weight (no pun intended - lol) in pure gold! From an extremely satisfied consumer!!!! Kudos to HILLS for bringing us this product!

Metabolic really works Our 7year old lab is very over weight. I will not share the weight as not to embarrass him. His meal is now the metabolic can, dry & treats. Before he ate another brand of dry food & table food. I did not think he would eat the metabolic but I was surprised. He liked it from the start. We walk a lot but his dad keeps picking him up in car as he thinks we are over doing it. Three months & 17 lbs lost. Kolbe said he can do it just keep the Hills Metabolic Prescription Diet food coming. June 30, 2013
Pricey and doesn't seem to satisfy my pups appetite. My dog has been on the Metabolic diet for almost 2 months now. She's lost 3 pounds which they tell me is right on target, we are supposed to do this for 6 months(she needs to lose 20 pounds) She is using the dry, wet and treats. She is hungry all the time which is odd because this is supposed to make her feel full. She's gone from waking me at 6:00 am every morning for her can of food to 4:30 am and she's constantly begging for more food. She has never done this before. Getting the food out of the can, it's like sawdust. I'm not happy with it. If I could feed her a different can brand and stay with the dry I would. We go in for another weight check in a few weeks, as long as she continues to lose the weight, I will stick with this for the 6 months but after that, we are done. I feel as though I am making her suffer. 1 can, 1 1/2 cup and 2 small treats a day just does not seem like enough food to me for a 1 year old dog. I spread out the feedings during the day and give her the last 1/2 cup before bedtime and she is still waking me at 4:30 for breakfast. March 6, 2014
Works Great!!! I have four Pugs ranging from 8-10 years old, All of them were overweight and my heaviest was 47 lbs. I have had them on 1/2 can wet plus 1 cup dry every evening and 1 biscuit every morning. No more pizza crust while watching football. It was hard at first because I have always shared my food with them and they looked at me with sweet eyes just asking for a morsel. I no longer free fed them and they like their nightly feeding in separate dishes. I believe in the dog food and also putting them on a restrictive (no pizza, chips) diet has helped them drop 3 pounds each in 2 1/2 months. I Highly recommend this product I like all wish it was a little cheaper. September 20, 2014
My dog loves this food My Shih Tzu/Bischon mix loves this food. I have seen some changes in his appearance. I just hope when I take him back to the vet in Feb that he has lost some weight. December 26, 2014
Metabolic Prescription Diet Formula I have 2 of my older Cavalier King Charles on this diet. They are losing weight, just not as fast as I had hoped. I look forward to end results. I hope we are as successful, as we are dedicated to the weight loss program. It's an expensive diet, but if it works than it's priceless towards the lifespan of our Cavaliers. I would love coupons attached to the bags for future purchases. Thanks August 31, 2013
