Product Description

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.

Key Benefits

  • Clinically proven low carbohydrate, high protein nutrition helps your cat burn fat and maintain lean muscle
  • Clinically proven weight control plus glucose management
  • High level of taurine to help maintain normal levels of insulin
  • High level of arginine to support insulin secretion
  • Added antioxidants to control cell oxidation and promote a healthy immune system
  • Made in the USA

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by It was a winner! My cat was recently diagnosed with diabetes and we've been trying several different kinds of food. He usually prefers wet food but if it's chunks in a gravy, he just licks off the gravy. This was a pate style and he liked it! It's been tough getting him to eat, so this is a relief! May 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by good for diabetic felines My diabetic cat, Molly, has been on The Hills MD (2 cans per day) & daily insulin injections for 4 years. She likes this food. It helps to maintain her BG levels. She goes on remission about 1 time a year. I continue to give her this food when on remission & helps her to stay on remission for as long as possible. I am thankful that this food for diabetic cats is available. It would be very difficult to control her diabetes with out MD. April 14, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Cat would not eat. The cat I bought this for is a dry food eater only. I was hoping to get him to start eating wet food as he had crystals in his urine. He is very stubborn! April 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by My cats liked it. I had a cat with diabetes. He stopped eating the dry version but would eat the canned. I have another kitty who didn't have diabetes and she enjoyed eating it, too. March 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The kitties lost the weight fast and they actually loved the food. My cats had gained weight while I was having surgery as other people were feeding them and they gained weight. I have had them on this food for less than a month and they are perfectly happy and content and not asking for more. They have both dropped their little fur pockets on their belly considerably. FANTASTIC!!!! March 25, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Our recently diagnosed with diabetes cat refuses to eat it:( The can is big enough for at least two portions. When we ordered the first case, our 14 y.o. was eating it fine. She has never been finicky about food in general. We were feeding her fancy feast before and have noticed that her fur is less shinny and looks more separated on m/d. She has just also started with insulin shots, but I think that her worsening fur condition is because of new food. I also wish it would come in different tastes and not only pork. The texture of food looks good and moisture enough. After she finished the first case (24 cans), she now refuses to eat it and I have the food from her bowl away. I now try to mix fancy feast with m/d and she eats it better. February 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by He loved it My cat loves the food and has been satisfied with the amount per day. He is overweight and has lost 8oz in 2 weeks. February 4, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by My Cat HATES this stuff My cat was recently diagnosed as being diabetic. This was prescribed for her. She wouldn't touch it. After her health continued to decline because she wasn't eating, I began to research this whole pet food stuff. I now see why she became diabetic (too much dry food filled with carbs). So, after my research I began feeding her a high protein, low carb canned food (not the grocery store kind either). I compared the carbs and discovered the m/d food was 14% carbs and the other ones only 2% and 4%. Plus, my cat scarfed this food up. I advised my vet, and she agreed that I could continue feeding her the food my cat would actually eat! I believe it is possible that she can become insulin free from a diet change, eating a diet meant for cats. Maybe your cat would like this m/d stuff so I can only speak for mine. But, do your own research on all this stuff for your cat's health and quality of their life... May 18, 2014
