Feeding Guide

Daily Feeding Guide:

Important Feeding Information

  • Feeding your pet the right amount of Metabolic every day will help them achieve and maintain a healthy weight for life.
  • These amounts are a starting point only. Determine the amount to feed based on IDEAL WEIGHT as provided by your veterinarian. Your dog may need more or less food to maintain his proper weight. Adjust as needed. If you are unsure, ask your veterinarian.
  • Mix increasing amounts of your dog's new food with decreasing amounts of the old food over a 7-day period.
  • Hill's Prescription Diet formulas are available in a wide variety of dry foods and treats for your dog's unique needs and canned foods with delicious flavors your dog will love. When using with canned food and treats, decrease the amount of dry food to avoid overfeeding. Supplementation with other foods or treats is unnecessary and may decrease the effectiveness of the food.
  • Keep fresh water available at all times!
  • For best results, have your veterinarian monitor your dog's condition.
  • To prevent suffocation, keep this plastic bag out of the reach of pets and children.

it works hands down I have a 7yr old dachshund that I rescued when he was 3yrs old--he was skin and bones at 11lbs and gained one pound per month until he ballooned to 21.3lbs, which was way too heavy for his 'tween frame--he looked his best when he was 14-15lbs--I've tried many other diet foods but he NEVER lost the weight combined with the fact that my mom shared her food with him and he stole on a regular basis his brother's food (toy poodle)---at a loss of what to do next I talked to his dr--the dr said it was imperative for Puck to lose weight and Metabolic was the only way it was going to happen--I was skeptical ---because for the last 3yrs he was the same weight no matter what I did-- I just can't believe the results in three months he's gone down to 17.5lbs !!!--I know they say 28% in the 1st 2mos but he has gone off the wagon here and there ---I'll be happy with 2.5 more pounds --he has more energy and is able to walk more with a pep in his step--I feel one more big bag should do it and then we can transition him back to regular food--the food satiates him (thank heavens)and he likes the flavor-he doesn't look at all like he's suffering/starving while on his diet--to me it smells like potato chips--he definitely looks healthier and is NOT being starved to lose the weight--he does move his bowels more-guess that's the excess weight going out of him--lol---but I must admit he still rather people food given the choice--if Hill's ever came up with a food that dogs would eat over human food then that would be priceless ;) but this is good runner up until that discovery comes ---bottom line, your pooch needs to lose weight, go on Metabolic October 19, 2013
Amazing Results For years, we joked about our Golden/Lab Retriever being a "plus-sized model." She is the prettiest, sweetest dog ever - but she was always a bit chunky no matter what we tried. She would refuse to eat diet dog food, and despite 5 miles of walking every day she couldn't shed those extra pounds. Now that she is older and dealing with elbow arthritis, long walks are difficult for her. My vet suggested HS Diet Metabolic to try and take off the extra weight. I was hesitant because of the high cost, but when they assured me I could return the food if she wouldn't eat the diet dog food I bought a bag. The results have been amazing!!! In 6 months she has gone from 106 to 92 lbs - and is now at her ideal weight. I know the food has to be tasty - it smells like roasted chicken. I wish I could find the same solution for me to help lose belly fat LOL September 26, 2013
Really works to get the weight off My dog has lost 12 lbs so far on this diet and we haven't been very strict on her feeding. She still has 9 1/2 lbs to go. Her activity has really increased and her coat is nice and shiny.Before she started this diet, she would be panting by the end of a 3 mile walk. Now she has no problem with the walk and loves her runs in the field. I have a picture of her before we started the diet and she looks so much better all ready. She eats all of her food in the morning. I recommend this diet for anyone who needs to get weight off their pet. December 19, 2013
definitely worth the money! our pup, well dog i should say because he's seven years old, has always been overweight and like most owners we never thought much about it. however, in april of this year he tore his acl and was in need of surgery to repair it. we decided that it was finally time to get the excess weight off of him to avoid the same injury to the other back leg. we started him on the metabolic food the same week we found out he needed the surgery. four months later i am proud to say not only has he fully recovered from the surgery, which took 12 weeks of limiting his activity to strictly allowing him out to the restroom and back inside to sit, but he's lost 22 pounds since starting the metabolic food. thank you hill's prescription diet employees for coming up with this food. you've truly helped us give snickers a healthier and better quality of life by getting this excess weight off. only 8 more pounds and he'll be down to the ideal weight the vet wants. this food is definitely worth the money!

Camo is a leaner weiner dog My dachshund Camo is a tween doxie that got up to 25 lbs. Our vet suggested Metabolic wet to begin our weight loss journey. Over six months, Camo dropped to 17 lbs which we have pretty much maintained. We have switched him over to Metabolic Dry now for maintenance. This product works and Camo really enjoys the taste. Would definitely recommend to pet owners with overweight dogs. October 27, 2014
Weight loss is amzing Our black lab being a typical lab has a never ending appetite and this resulted in her approaching 98 pounds. With the extra weight she starting developing shoulder problems so we took her to a specialist who recommended putting her on a weight reducing food. We started her on a Hills Metabolic regiment and she has lost about 20 pounds over the last year. No more shoulder problems and now has a real spring to her step! Yes it is expensive but it does work and she actually loves the food. Soon we will move her back to a none-grain base food and watch her more closely for weight gain. April 14, 2014
Rusty's Weight Progress Since my last post Rusty has lost another 1lb. Rusty is my 2nd long haired Dachshund. My experience is that their favorite form of exercise is rolling over from one side to the other on the couch. However, since he has lost this weight he now plays with toys, and is much more active than every before. Slow and steady is the race. He has lost approximately half the weight he needs to lose. He isn't begging for food, and my favorite thing is that I use the dry kibble as his treats and doesn't seem to notice the difference. I LOVE THIS FOOD, or rather Rusty loves this food.

It really works! My 5 year old Pug has allergies and has been on steroid treatments for some time. The steroids caused her to be quite overweight. My veterinarian suggested the Metabolic food and we decided to try it. She started out at 30 pounds and after a very short while went down to 23. Working on getting her to 18 lbs., but we are well on the way. This weight loss has helped her to be more active she has regained her bubbly personality. She seems to enjoy the food more than what she previously ate and even more so if I mix a small amount of the wet food as well. The treats are also a big hit with her! If you're dog fights a weight problem you really should try this food! September 26, 2013
