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 4.7 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by What is it's perishable score? My cat was diagnosed with diabetes. For a long time he was eating Purina DM and for some reason, he refused to eat it. One of his doctors said he could eat Hills m/d or w/d or the diabetic version of Royal Canin. He didn't like w/d. But he likes m/d. We keep it in it's original bag and inside a pet food storage bin with a seal. We had bought a 4 lb. bag and by the time it was half full, it started smelling funny. He'd eat it in the morning but refused to eat it in the evening. Fortunately for me, Chewy & Hills, have a 100% guarantee on their food. When I began using a new bag, my cat was vigorously eating his food at the prescribed time, both in the morning and the evening. If your animal is diagnosed with this disease, eating the right food isn't enough, but a diabetic diet does help your animal live a longer healthier life. February 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cat's been great My Cat's been great on this food. She loves it and it has helped her maintain her necessary weight. April 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great stuff We have a diabetic cat who is 14 years old and this product helps to keep his blood sugar under control along with his insulin. The best part is that it has made a huge difference in his sister's health as well! Would recommend it. March 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Saved us from doing insulin shots In November my cat's glucose levels were at a 303. After follow up blood and urine tests in January they dropped to 142 after only eating the prescription food. We mainly gave him the rx wet food, but did dry on occasion and for ease. We go back in at the end of this month for another follow up but this food worked wonders and saved us from having to start daily insulin shots. It's pricey, but much less than insulin would have been! So happy my vet recommended this food!! February 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Food ust as I expected - but Customer Svc OUTSTANDING My cat has been ill for some time and is losing weight my vet decided to let her eat what ever she will for as long as she has. She is almost 2o yrs old. She is eating some of the m/d food which is good. I really want to comment on the outstanding customer service I received from the Chewy.com folks. Emails and tracking were beyond any I have received from other pet supply website. For as long as she lives I will be buying my supplies from Chewy.com. Thanks guys, I appreciate it more than you know. February 11, 2016
