Rated 5 out of 5 by TomBarnacles Expensive, but well worth it.
Two sister cats, each 4 years old. Both love to eat and eat too much, and are getting heavier, less healthy, and too lethargic during the day. Vet suggested Hill's Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution. Advertised claim is that it will not only reduce their food fat intake, but will increase their metabolism, and that will help decrease their fat/weight over time.
It's about 3-4 weeks later and both cats "seem" a wee bit lighter (this is a new experience). But what is most noticeable is that they are 5 times more active than they've ever been since their kitten days. Even the "once chubbier" of the two is now jumping, chasing and playing with her slightly smaller sister, and getting less chubbier. Oh yeah, both cats really seem to love the taste of this food and that is a quiet blessing in itself.
This stuff does cost about 4x more than the very good quality cat food we were using, but having them both this active is worth it, especially if will lead to better/healthier years to come. I'm fully committed to this Hill product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ghs61 Hill's Metabolic is an advanced weight solution dry cat food that our cats like.
Our vet has recommended that two of our cats eat this food. Previously, she had recommended Hill's Prescription Diet r/d for the same cats. She and the other vets at this veterinary hospital switched to Hill's Metabolic, because they thought it was a better product. Our cats have liked Metabolic, since the first time we purchased it. I think it is fair to say that they like it better than they did r/d.

Our 2 cats have been eating Hill's Prescription Diet Feline Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution Dry and Wet Cate Food for about a year. Both of them have lost weight and both love both types of the food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ron46 Excellent Treat for Fatcats
Ouir vet allows our overweight fatcat to eat these treats in between his 1/4 cup twice daily feedings of his metabolic weight loss food. It cuts down on the mewoing and howling in between feedings and makes the day a bit more bearable. He loves these things that actually are good for him in moderation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NanTC This product actually does what it claims!
I've tried other low-cal foods to help my Miss Kitty lose weight, but this is the first food that has actually worked! She has arthritis is her back leg and reducing her weight is helping her move easier. Thank you!

I inadvertently fattened up a skinny rescue cat until he was 5 pounds overweight (it happened quickly!). We restricted his food intake, tried other diet foods and his weight wouldn't budge. He's been on Metabolic kibble for a few months now and has lost one pound and is still losing. This must be very palatable food because all our cats (6) like it, and the fat one doesn't mind eating the kibble when everyone else is getting canned. (By the way, the canned version of this is NOT popular with any of our cats. It smells bad.) I was also relieved that it is easily digested as this cat has a history of malabsorption -- no problems, normal stools.

Rated 3 out of 5 by gigi1462 no weight loss
My cat has not lost a pound! He's a Rag Doll cat and weighs 21lbs, I give him 3/4 dry daily and he cries to be fed in between.
I will try the treats to use in between feedings, but at this price I expected much better results. Oh yea, he's been on it for 6 months
