Rated 5 out of 5 by Krista3 Proof enough for ME
I have struggled to keep one of my doxies from being overweight. I used to have them on Hill's RD which is a very restrictive dog food, but it makes your dog use the restroom excessively. It also made one of my girl doxie overly hungry where she was constantly begging for food. It was non-stop begging. After multiple testings with nothing wrong I decided to change the food.
I tried a natural and organic dog food, multiple brands such as Instinct and it caused my doxies both to gain a lot of weight. So now I'm using this dog food and both of them have lost weight. My girl is heavier and dropped two pounds. She was weighing nearly sixteen pounds and she is a mini dachshund. In a month's time, she dropped two pounds. I can see that she is slimming down and I'm so grateful for this dog food. It has also slimmed down my boy doxie but he was only slightly overweight and he reached his goal weight already. If you are a dachshund owner, you know how important it is for a dachshund NOT to be overweight because it can cause major back issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mumsstar This product so far is everything it says it is.
We have two yellow Labs. They love to eat and overweight dogs can be a problem. We have had Labs on diets before with minimal success. This product took off Five pounds each on both our dogs in a month of use. We are now weaning them back on to their regular food. This product has been great. The dogs did not appear to be hungary like they did on other diet foods. I would highly recommend this food. I would also highly recommend Chewy.com. We saved money ordering through Chewy rather than getting it from the Vet. We also got free shipping! That is a huge savings on almost sixty pounds of food delivered to my door!

Rated 2 out of 5 by lorena not for small dogs
We purchased this food in hopes that it would help our dog lose weight. When we received it the morsels were way to big for our small dogs to eat. We have 2 chihuahuas. I cut the morsels into small pieces but they pushed them around with their nose and ate everything else but the metabolic food. Food should come in small size pieces for small dogs. We purchased the treats as well they are also made for big dogs. A little disappointed with the size. Was a waste of money for us

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mayu40 This product didn't help and added more trouble.
My vet recommended this dog food for my 10 year old pug. She didn't lose much weight so I cut the amount food but still didn't lose much. Addition to the disappointment, she started to going poo inside the house. She didn't have any control of when she needed to go and couldn't wait to go outside, the poo just pushed out. My poor pug. She felt bad going inside the house, but she couldn't help it. We thought it was because of her old age, but after we switched her food to her previous food, it's all improved. We will never go back to the food.

In trying to control the weight of my dogs who love to eat, my vet suggested Hills RD dog food. This was slightly before Hills launched their Metabolic food. So we fed our dogs the RD for about 3 weeks but did not see any weight loss in them. As soon as our vet received the Metabolic we switched our dogs to that new food. Our dogs love the flavor and taste of Metabolic and after being on it for 4 weeks we finally saw weight loss in our dogs. They have been on the Metabolic now for almost a year and our vet is very happy with the weight loss results and so are we.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susita This product is wonderful.
My Fritz loves this dog food; he liked it the first time I give it to him. It seems like he can't wait for his second feeding and I'm serious. Fritz needs more exercise which I'm trying to do depending on the weather. I would recommend this dog food to anyone who has a dog with a weight problem. I must add, he loves the bones, too. I am very anxious to find out if Fritz has lost any weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by peBBlesAndBamBam Excellent product
We have a three year old golden retriever. He weighed 120 pounds and the vet put him on this food. He just went back for his two week check after switching his diet and has lost 5 pounds. I was skeptical, but he eats just as much food and is very happy. I balked at the price, but he's worth it and it works!!

This dog food is awesome! My overweight Rat Terrier has lost 12 lbs. in 3 months. She's happier, more playful, and more agile now. I would recommend this food to anyone with an over weight dog..
