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.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 Two weeks ago when I went to my Vet for dog food, I was advised that RD is no longer available but has been replaced by Metabolic for weight loss and maintenance.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
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by The prescription diet food is AWESOME!!! I have had both my dogs on this food for a little over 4 weeks and they have both lost 3 pounds each - which was very much needed (Yorkie & Rat Terrier). I am working with my pets vet to make sure they are healthy so no worries. Since starting my pets on the prescription diet food, I have seen more energy in both of them and my one that snores and sheds a lot has quit snoring and very limited shedding now. I do mix the wet with the dry prescription diet and I follow the measurements to the "t" on what is needed for weight loss. They will both be on this food about another 2 months and then move on to the maintenance diet. I should have done this earlier for my pets. Its very cost effective and my pets really like the food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is effective for weight loss. My five year old neutered chihuahua mix, Milo, was slowly but surely gaining weight, eating a high quality organic, canned dog food diet. He really looked pudgy and bulged out of his harness. I decreased the quantity of food, and added an extra walk, but he did not lose weight. The vet was becoming concerned and recommended Hills Metabolic Weight Loss diet. It took a week or so to wean Milo onto it, but he ate it heartily. After three months on Metabolic, he has lost one and a half pounds, and is well on the way to his ideal weight. He has another pound to go! He looks amazing and is so perky and full of life! Milo and I are both very happy with Metabolic, and the results he was able to achieve. April 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our Bichon loves the taste and we believe it will add more healthy years to her life. Our 8.5 year old Bichon had previously been a somewhat finicky eater and would turn up her nose and walk away from the taste of many dog foods. Even though we had our doubts that she would even try the Metabolic, she sniffed it and immediately took to the taste and has been eating the wet, dry, and treats with gusto! The food is so convenient and easy to serve. The best part is that she has already lost 2.5 pounds. The cost of the food is a little more expensive than some other brands, but when you consider the quality and the health benefits it supplies by adding more healthful years to your beloved family member's life, we feel it is worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by great product my dogs switched over very quickly My dogs have had great results on the wet and dry metabolic. I wish the kibble on the metabolic dry was smaller as my dogs are small. They do eat both products and my one male doxie who is not active lost 2 pounds in one month and my female doxie lost 1.5 pounds in the same time frame. I have told everyone I know who has dogs how great it is. My only real complaint is how expensive the wet food is and that may prohibit me from keeping my dogs on it for as long as they may need it to achieve their weight loss goal.. Also the metabolic treats my dogs also love them!! September 24, 2014
