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
Very good product. The only thing that I would like to see is something in the formula for the reduction of Hairballs. Since we have switched to this from IAMS indoor cat we have noticed an increase of hairballs. August 13, 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
Great for Diabetic Cats ! I feed my cat both the dry and wet M/D. My cat loves it. Would like to see more coupons on line. July 10, 2014
Excellent food product but needs to be more affordable The food is excellent but, unfortunately having three cats that eat this everyday; the product is only made in an 8 pound bag. A larger size bag would be more beneficial, also, more coupons should be available for the consumer since the price is expensive. I suggest an incentive rewards program for customers who used this product frequently. July 4, 2014
