Hill's® Prescription Diet®
m/d® Feline Weight Loss-Low Carbohydrate-Glucose Management


Weight control and glucose management 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 help cats effectively lose weight and maintain appropriate glucose levels.

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 loose 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. Supplementation with other foods or treats is unnecessary and may decrease the effectiveness of the food.
  • When using with canned food and treats, decrease the amount of dry food to avoid overfeeding.
  • Keep fresh water available at all times!
  • For best results, have your veterinarian monitor your pet's condition.
  • To prevent suffocation, keep this plastic bag out of the reach of pets and children.

He doesn't like it, but will eat it when he gets really hungry. I have 3 cats, and one is a diabetic, but I can't leave out the regular cat food, because he can't have it. So I leave out the MD food, which gets expensive. So, 1. It would help if it came in more than one flavor. 2. Need easier access to coupons. March 10, 2014
Life saver for my cat, Calypso My cat loves this food. She had no problem adjusting to it and I saw results very quickly. October 11, 2014
Excellent for diabetics! My diabetic male cat loves this food! I feel good being able to give him the dry food he craves, yet still stick to a diet that is great for his health and insulin levels. LOVE IT! June 29, 2013
Diabetic diet, cat seems to like it. Price went up like everything else! But you know there family, so it all works out in the end.. Jon July 14, 2014
Healthy, Happy, Cats I have two 6 year old cats who have been eating Hill's since they were eight weeks old. They have clear eyes and silky fur. They seem to really enjoy the food and it has kept them very healthy. I know two vets (who don't know one another) and they both rave about how good this food is for cats. I trust them both and I trust your product. Thank you June 25, 2014
Hill's® Prescription Diet® m/d Quality product and our cat loves it. Jack is diabetic and needs 2 injections per day. We use the canned wet m/d to coax him to come for his injections at 8 AM & 8 PM (1 tablespoon). As soon as I open the can, he's there waiting to be fed. We feed him the dry m/d (5/8's of a cup) the rest of the day. He used to weigh 20 pounds but by feeding him the m/d for the past 4 years, he's now 14 pounds. November 12, 2013
My diabetic kitty really seems to enjoy this food. Not only does my diabetic kitty (Lady Lily) like this food, but my other kitties wait till she's done eating her Hill's® Prescription Diet® m/d® Feline Weight Loss-Low Carbohydrate-Glucose Management, then they dive into her food. All my kitties enjoy Hill's food! May 19, 2014
My Cat likes the Dry My cat likes the dry, but it's higher in carbs so I have to limit his consumption. October 20, 2014
