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


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.

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.

My Cat Won't Eat Anything Else My cat Mollie has been on this food for about 8 years now. She tends to be a pound or two overweight so feeding her this Hills Prescription Diet Feline RD helps keep her girlish figure. She is 13 years old now and looks great for a senior girl. I think good nutrition and vigilant vet care have been major contributors to her health. June 29, 2013
Great food for my overweight senior cat! At our last vet. Visit, my 9.5 year old furry boy Pancho weighed in at 15.4 pounds. His vet recommended prescription diet r/d. He has not only lost a little weight, he has much more energy! Love seeing him act kitten-ish! And, he loves the food! February 26, 2013
Excellent for any overweight cat! This food has been highly recommended for monstrously overweight cats (20lbs+) and it works very quickly without any adverse effects to the animal. I got my cat, Angel, when I was in fourth grade. She was my first real pet, and she is still with me today. Angel and I moved to a much smaller home a couple years ago, and the loss of a staircase and playmates (as well as outdoor access) really took a toll on her physique. "Light" foods were not light enough for her, and she was eating so little already that I really couldn't feed her less without robbing her of vital nutrients. This food fixed all of my problems completely. Losing weight has made Angel more active and taken loads of stress off of her geriatric joints, increasing her mobility tenfold. If you could hear her purring at my feet right now, you would know that r/d has made her a much happier kitty. December 1, 2012
Our newest rescue is loosing weight Sweet Pea came to me 7 years ago with frostbite and serious infections. She was nursed back to health. Her new family over fed her and neglected her care. She more than doubled her weight and was so matted that she was starting to get infections. We re-rescued her. She had to be shaved and is working on weight loss. She has lost almost 2 pounds in the last 3 weeks. She is more energetic and playful. She is starting to make her " burrrrr" sounds again. That means she is happy! It is good to have her home. She will never leave us again. Thanks for your food. She is on her way to regaining her health! August 25, 2014
The product has great features Makes my cats eat less, feel full and have great restroom results August 16, 2014
helps my senior cat keep his weight down This food helps keep my senior cats weight down and he does not get any urinary track infections since he started eating this food 10 years ago. The only thing that I would like to see you offer is more dollar off coupons because the food is so expensive for my budget and sometimes I have a hard time to pay for the food and just the one coupon a year is not enough.

Excellent! Have 2 kitties 14 years old on c/d and r/d. Have been on these for many years and are in great health. Clouseau and Kato enjoy their meal time and I also add some wet food. Their health and well being is paramount to us and we count on c/d and r/d to keep them in top form for their age. Thanks for a product that helps us to keep them as long as possible! June 23, 2014
This food seems to be yummy for my cat . I have been feeding my cat r/d for about 6months , she looks like she has lost weight. I am going to take him to get weighed in and the scale will tell the truth. But my cat loves the food. He also has 3/4 of r/d wet, which he also love's. April 24, 2014
