Canine Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution

Metabolic was formulated with the pet owner in mind, offering a complete portfolio of dry food, canned food, and treats. These products work together to ensure safe and healthy weight loss and easy weight maintenance without making big changes or depriving your pet.

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.

This food works! My dog ended up gaining weight after she hurt her back and ended up not being able to be as active as before she got hurt. My wife and I tried many things to try and get her to lose the weight-like increasing her level of activity and having her on Hill's w/d Prescription Diet. This didn't seem to work for her as her weight stayed pretty much the same. However, once we talked to our vet about the new Metabolic food and our vet did the measurements required by Hill's, we were told what amount of food to feed her and here we are about 8 months later and she is almost down to her target weight! I have also noticed increased muscle strength and she just seems lighter on her feet. It is also worth mentioning that our dog absolutely LOVES the taste of this food--more so than any other we have previously tried. Both my wife and I are very happy with the results of this food and the value of it and we would both recommend it! October 4, 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!

Metabolic Hills Prescription My dog has lost weight in the first 10 days. It was 2 pounds. She plays like a puppy and she is 7 years old. She has to lose her belly fat to have a life saving surgery or she will bleed to much. It looks like she is losing weight really fast like the doctor said she would. It is pricey but worth it to save her life. Oh and the cat has his too. He is just plain oh fat and since the dog is on a diet then why not him. lol He loves it and it fills him up. lol Wish the bird had his too because he eats all day long. August 23, 2013
My dogs love this food this was the easiest dog food I've ever transitioned into my dogs diet. They beg for it and act like it's a treat. Easy clean up afterwards. I wish this was made with a slightly smaller kibble since my dogs are dentally challenged. This diet lives up to its name. They are losing weight and feeling great! September 19, 2014
This is the only dog food that has help my dog lose weight. I have tried several brands of food to help my 3 year old lab lose weight and Metabolic Advanced has been the only one that has worked. He lost 8 lbs. in 3 weeks and is continuing to lose more. The goal is for him to lose a total of 18. He is already more energetic and exhibits more flexibility. I prefer to feed grain free products for a healthier coat and skin but this food is addressing his biggest problem - weight. I am tempted to eat this food myself! If only they made a human formula!

It's works My dog has lost 21 lbs in the past 4 months. Would highly recommend it to any dog owner that has a overweight dog and is concern of their health. The only negative thing I have to say is its expensive. My dog loves the taste, it works and healthy for her. September 16, 2014
my beagle has lost 10 pounds. It was really important, as she is getting older and having problems with her shoulder. Her mobility has improved, but she has been raiding the trash if we don't catch her! She's a beagle, always looking for food. Gotta love em. September 15, 2014
WOW - Great Results We have had our Jack Russell on the Metabolic Dry Prescription food for only 2 weeks and she has already lost a little over 2 pounds. That's a lot for a small dog. She eats it better than any dry food we have ever given her and she gets ONE Metabolic dog bone per day as a treat (we break it into pieces so she can have several smaller treats per day). She is about 5 pounds overweight, so we pray she can get her weight down fairly quickly. It's easy when they like the taste of the food. It's a bit pricy, however, she is a smaller dog who doesn't require a ton of food so it is affordable. Try it!!! September 15, 2014
