Hill's® Prescription Diet®
r/d® Canine Weight Loss-Low Calorie


Weight reduction for overweight dogs.

Almost 50% of the pet population is overweight. Even a little extra weight can lead to serious health problems. Extra weight can reduce play time, impact mobility and affect the general health of your dog. Factors contributing to weight gain include age, lack of exercise and overfeeding.

Many commercial pet foods are loaded with salt and fat, which improve the taste but also have dramatic effects on your dog's weight and overall health. Along with frequent physical exercise, choosing the right food plays a very important role in helping dogs reach their proper weight.

Feeding Guide

Daily Feeding Guide:

Important Feeding Information

  • Cover and refrigerate unused potion.
  • These amounts are a starting point only. Determine the amount to feed based on TARGET WEIGHT rather than the current weight. Your dog may need less or more food to safely lose weight. Adjust as needed. If you are unsure or if you are not feeding this product for weight loss, ask your veterinarian.
  • Mix increasing amounts of your dog's new food with decreasing amounts of the old food over a 7-day period. 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 dry food and treats, decrease the amount of canned 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.

The product takes weight off my pet and he needed it. R/d is the best weight loss food I have found for my minpin and he seems to like it. He has eaten it for the last year and I was amazed at how quickly the weight came off. May 25, 2014
Great product! My dog just began getting wet food after an overnight stay at the vet. She loved it so much that I continued buying it! We already get the dry low fat food but she looks forward to the wet food everyday. April 9, 2014
dog likes it and keeps her weight down My dog enjoys this product and she gets full and it still keeps her weight down April 7, 2014
Good food for my dog. This is a very good product. My dog loves it and it good with his digestive system. I want to feed him everyday with it but when you live on a budget, sometimes it hard to buy it. I give him dry food in the mornings and wet for dinner. My dog is on the heavy side and he needs to lose wight. This food helps him lose wight and at the same time he likes it. August 29, 2014
Pet likes Flavor of food. My pet has been on this food for about 15 months and has never acted like he doesn't like it and has shown some weight loss, but not as much as I hoped for, will continue using it and hope for better results. August 2, 2014
All the fiber keeps my little lady's tummy full :) All the fiber keeps my little lady's tummy full :) It would be five stars if it came with pop-top cans and didn't stick to the inside. July 10, 2014
This is a great product, my pet has successfully lost some weight, not all that she needs to, but I'll continue her on it. My pet took to the taste right away, but since has waned interest in it. Since she is losing weight I keep her on it and believe it is good for her. March 3, 2014
To expensive One of my dogs lost no weight in a three month period.The other dog lost a pound(shi-tzu). The cans are too expensive. January 3, 2014
