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


Weight reduction for overweight cats.

Almost 50% of the pet population is overweight. Even a little extra weight can lead to serious health problems. Extra weight reduces play time, impacts mobility and affects the general health of your cat. 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 cat's weight and overall health. Along with frequent physical exercise, choosing the right food plays a very important role in helping cats reach their proper weight.

At Hill's, nutritionists and veterinarians have developed clinical nutrition especially formulated to reduce cats' body fat by 20% in three months, while keeping him or her satisfied.

Feeding Guide

Daily Feeding Guide:

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 cat 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 cat'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 cat's unique needs and canned foods with delicious flavors your cat 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 cat's condition
  • To prevent suffocation, keep this plastic bag out of the reach of pets and children.

Weight Loss works My overweight cat has lost 3lbs in a month. Will continue to use this product. December 5, 2013
This product really works The prescription diet cat food works wonderfully. I have been using this cat food for about one year and he's been losing wieght and getting healthier. It takes a little time to start seeing the results but there are indeed results. He loves the taste and waits at the door to be fed. My cat loves the food and I love how it is helping him become healthier. There are two pictures of my cat, Simon. Before he weighted about 23 puonds and now, recently, he weights 17 pounds. He lost about 6 pounds and gained a lot more energy. October 18, 2013
Very healthy product We have two brothers and got them at 18lbs each. Was recommended this food by our vet, and works great! They are both down to about 15lbs. They seem to enjoy the dry food very much. They are definately more playful. : ) September 23, 2013
So far so good! 1st bag completed, cats love it. This is only the first bag we have gone through, but so far my cat loves the taste of the food. Even our other cat that does not need to be on this loves the food as well. July 21, 2014
Cat would rather starve then eat this product I purchased not only this product but one other of the prescription dry foods for weight loss and the wet food for weight loss. I introduced it slowly. Our cat would not eat. I tried it on it's own. Our cat would not eat. He actually picked up the dry food in his mouth, spit it out and walked away. It was an expensive attempt to use this brand of food. Our cat did not eat for 2 days in an attempt to make it work. We finally gave up because not eating was the more dangerous route. July 13, 2014
We use r/d for fiber content Our 13 year old cat Tyler was suffering from severe constipation. Our vet recommended Hill's Prescription Diet r/d for its high fiber content to help him eliminate. Tyler and his sister Willow both eat the dry and wet r/d, and they love it! Tyler's bowel problems have cleared up nicely. June 24, 2014
This product works well, and my cat loves it My cat was overweight and the vet suggested using Prescription Diet R/D. He has slowly, but steadily been losing the extra weight, and the vet is very happy with the progress he has made! June 19, 2014
Measured and Demonstrated Results! I have been using the Prescription Diet R/D for at least four years on my two male cats and started our recently adopted female cat on this food after she turned six months. The two male cats managed to lose close to a pound each after a period of time and have maintained their weight loss. My little female is nice and trim. I am so glad my vet recommended this food.
