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

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.

At Hill's, nutritionists and veterinarians have developed clinical nutritin especially formulated to reduce dogs' body fat by 22% in two months, while keeping him or her satisfied.

Important Feeding Information

  • 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 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.

This product is fantastic Canine r/d is an excellent weight loss diet. My dog finds it palatable andhas loss 90 % off her reccomended weight in less than 6 months. I am the head technician at my clinic and this is a food I commonly recommend for my patients November 21, 2013
Just right My pup was a little overweight then he got sick this product help control his blood sugar and as trim him down to where he should be. October 25, 2013
I didn't beleive this food would work My bulldog has protein losing enteropathy and my vet recommend Hill's® Prescription Diet® r/d. My first thought was with the protein losing enteropathy he lost 25 pounds, he didn't need to lose any more weight he was very sick and could not keep any food in him, he would eat and 10 minutes later we would have to run outside. We then tried Hill's® Prescription Diet® r/d and within 3 days he was holding his food and didn't have to run to the bathroom! In the 7 months since we have been using the Hill's® Prescription Diet® r/d he has gained all the weight back he lost. There is no cure for protein losing enteropathy but at least he can maintain it with this food. Thank you Hill's for making a food that the protein is broken down enough that my bullies body doesn't have to break it down. August 22, 2013
Good Stuff My Rotti really enjoys his meals. She actually lets me know when feeding time is close. February 15, 2014
This product really works in promoting weight loss for your dog. Before I realized it my tiny Shitzu was weighing a whopping 27 pounds! She had the broad shoulders of a bull dog and waddled, barely able to walk outside. I started her on the RD Diet dog food and it took about a year for her to reach her slender figure weight of 14 pounds. And she has maintained it for over 4 years. She now has a very tiny waistline and can run and keep up with my other four dogs. I am sure this food has extended her lifespan and have recommended to others. Although it may seem costly it really is not to bad as the servings are smaller and it swells almost to 3 times it's size. I suppose this helps your dogs belly feel full. And her coat of hair is so shiny and soft now....... February 13, 2014
Great for weight loss My dog lost 15 pounds with this product. Our vet is very happy (weighed him twice). Dog is more active and healthy now. February 13, 2014
Both dogs love this food My doxies eat this food plain or with veggies mixed in. Never A problem..easy to travel or give to dog sitter. My pups weight Is stable on this food. The dog food is expensive and I continue To buy it because of the reasons given above...the coupon Available online is the big help. February 12, 2014
My pets absolutely LOVE this formula! From the very beginning, both my dogs love the flavor. They both ate all the product at every serving. I've never seen them respond to any product this way. I feel VERY confident about the quality of this product...and the results. I highly recommend it! Thanks for such a wonderful product. February 12, 2014
