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


Weight reduction for overweight cats and insulin control for diabetic 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 normal insulin 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.

diabetic cat does very well on this food My vet offers at reasonable price and my cat eats less; therefore a reasonable cost for his food. Doing better since the switch. November 15, 2013
Saved my cats life! I have a 17 year old male cat and discovered he had diabetes. He was unable to walk but was alert and willing to eat and drink. Vet gave us the option of med or diet change. We choose Prescription M/D and I am happy to say he is jumping up in my bed and doing well. He just might make birthday 18!!! Amazing!!! Our 2 year old eats it also and they play like kids! July 18, 2013
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
Immediate glucose control Several years ago our cat was diagnosed as diabetic. Thanks to the glucose control provided by m/d Feline, we have been able to transition him to a regimen that does not require insulin injections. He took to the food immediately, which was quite a relief as he is typically a very picky eater. In fact, he now makes his displeasure very vocal when he does not have m/d Feline dry. He had previously eaten Science Diet food and the transition to m/d Feline was instantaneous and seamless with no kitty food protests (which had occurred every other time we had tried a diet change). An added benefit has been that he also eats the wet m/d Feline as a part of his regular diet - this from a cat who has always refused canned food. August 30, 2014
Great for lowering blood sugar We have a cat that had high blood sugar and our vet suggested this food to try to get it lowered without having to have insulin. I was skeptical that just changing food would solve the problem but I was so wrong! I am so happy to say that his blood sugar is back to normal and we feed it to our other 4 inside cats! The price is nothing compared to the joy we feel by not having to give our cat shots. Sadly, 10 years ago we lost a cat due to diabetes and we never want to have to go through that again. We gladly pay the price for this food. August 27, 2014
My pet loves the taste Excellent product but needs to be available in larger size bags, plus there is a need to implement an incentive program for customers who purchase this product frequently. More money saving coupons for the customer with no limitations on how many they get a month,like which is currently done. August 23, 2014
A quality product that meets dietary needs for my cat. My cat was put on this diet by my veterinarian about six weeks ago. I am feeding her the dry and the canned meat. She can't wait until meal time each day and doesn't leave anything in her bowl. Because she is 14 years old now and is showing dietary complications, this quality product gives me assurance she is getting all the nutrition she needs. Great product! August 2, 2014
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
