Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Weight Management Chicken Flavor Dry Dog Food
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!!

I am so glad my Vet. gave me a sample pack
Hello Furry Friend Lovers! I have a small rat dog,Ha! Ha!
Her name is Peanut, it should be Walnut! She is about four pounds overweight. That is a lot for her. I was given a sample pk. by my Vet. Wow! it was a huge pk. with lots of goodies inside. Her first feeding she was not sure. But, she ate it right up. Making pig noises! After only one week we could tell she was already looking slimmer. She also is a lot happier and wants to go for walks. She wants to go swimming in our pool. She wears a doggy life vest and loves to play!

This product really works
I have 2 overweight dogs and though I was skeptical that this product would help them lose weight, it really works! My dogs love it and each has lost approx 7 lbs so far. My vet highly reccomends it and has his dogs on it as well.

My dog Liked it too but....
My 13 year old minuture poodle is very picky about food (yes, still..lol), and he was eating Science Diet light SMALL BITES. He was neuter a few months ago and started gaining weight so the Doctor change him to the Metabolic. He did liked the food right from the first time he tried it. However, 2 weeks after he started I notice he wasn't eating until the end of the day. I would like to suggest the manufacture to do the same food in SMALL BITES as well.
For senior dogs, small bites is better due to the fact that as they grow old they tend to loss teeths and small bites would be a great idea. In the meantime I'm adding a little water or homemade vegetable broth and let it sit with the food until it get soft. Only then he will eat it.

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

So far, so good!
My dogs are now both on the new hill's metabolic food. One dog because she's on a diet prescribed by my vet and the other because he likes the food. I'm relieved that both of them started eating the food without difficulty in switching foods. It only took 2 days before both were eating the food when offered. I don't know what it is that made the food so appealing but I'm glad they both like it. Would recommend Metabolic for weight loss and as the maintenance diet.

The dogs loved he taste.
I rescued a two year old Australian Cattle dog that is 30 pounds overweight. I used this food for 3 months, I followed the feeding guide and gave him no other treats or food. He only lost 3 pounds. I am very dissapointed with the minimal weight loss. The dogs loved the taste and I wished it had worked. I am switching him to Blue Buffalo for the next couple of months to see how he does with that. I highly recomend your site to all my friends amd will continue to placemy orders with you. Thank You.

This product seems to be working.
With a dog who loves to eat. It's been hard to see him lick his bowl and ask with his eyes more please. But we see some weight loss, how much I don't know yet.

Great product - worth the extra money to buy quality food.
Our Labrodoodle has been on Hill's Metabolic since February of last year. By following our vet's recommended feeding schedule he lost 14 pounds in 10 months (the amount he was supposed to lose). He is now on the maintenance plan - meaning he can eat more food each day to maintain his weight. Love the convenience of having it delivered right to our door.

Expensive, but worth the price
Our two Pit Bulls were 20-30 lbs over weight, and the vet recommended we try this food to help get them down to a healthy weight. Both dogs lost 10 lbs in a little over 3 weeks!

My dog loves this food. He is satisfied longer after eating and it does not upset his stomach or cause gas.
He has lost some weight within one and half months. It smells really good too.

Weight loss dog food
I was recommended by my vet to try this food for my pug who is about 5 pounds overweight. So far, I haven't noticed a real difference in his weight since he's been eating for about a month. I'm not sure if he likes it as much as his Purina One Chicken & Rice either. He also seems much hungrier on this food and poops more frequently too.

Good tasting diet dog food
Finally someone has a good tasting diet food for pets. I feed this to my cats and my dog. My cat was so fat that he could not even clean himself in those hard to reach places. He can now clean himself after being on the food for several months. I know he feels better and is much healthier! So far all my cats and dog love this food. I highly recommend it!

Diet Food Dogs Will Eat
Of my 2 Mini-Schnauzers, one is a picky eater and the other needs weight management. This food is loved by both dogs! It is a hard, dry food but plumps up nicely with a little water if needed. I've noticed their stool is more firm with this food so I give some veggies and wet food to occasionally supplement (thus the 4 stars). Oh, and the price? At least $20 less than I was paying via the vet's office. And shipping was fast and easy with Chewy. No more big box pet store for us!

Great control of weight
The metrobolic diet has been the only food to control the weight of my two full sized collies. Although expensive, it has been the best for the health.

Our dogs love it.
Our dogs (labs) love the taste, and one of them is very picky with new foods. However, after two weeks I am not yet seeing the results (3 cups each per day). Hopefully we'll see the pounds coming off soon or it may not be worth the money to reorder.
I cannot recommend it until I can see that it works.

My dog loves her new food
I am a new customer with Chewy and ordered a bag of prescription dog food for my dog after the vet suggested that she should lose some weight. The price is great and much cheaper than the vet sells it for. The delivery to my door is so nice, convenient and fast. I also signed up for auto shipping so I don't have to remember to order new food before running out of the old.

Helped my dog lose weight
Along with canned metabolic dog food, my dog lost 20lbs in a year. He loves the combination of wet/dry food and is really satisfied when he's done eating.

Best weight loss food
If your dog is overweight and you have tried everything, ask your vet to try Metabolic by science diet, best weight loss food I have ever used!

Fur kids love the taste

Great weight-loss product
Sawyer was a rescue and 135 lb golden retriever. The rescue put them on this diet. We adopted him three weeks ago and have continued with this great food. He is down to 115 pounds now and we hope to have him at his goal weight of 105 by next spring. His coat is good and his energy level is high I highly recommend this product for anyone working to get their dog back in shape.

My miniature loves this product and has been losing an average of one pound per week. Great, fast service from Chewy.com!

Best food so far!
My boxer gained much weight after I adopted her...and no matter what weight control food I tried, nothing was working. Vet recommended Metabolic. She began eating it as soon as I put the bowl down. She loves it! She has lost 4 lbs since we started. Her stools used to be soft with other brands I tried; the day I started using Metabolic, they were proper texture and form, making clean up very easy. I honestly cannot say enough good about this food. Expensive, yes, but the end results are worth it.

My 11-year old cattle/pit mix dropped 5 lbs in the first 3 weeks. Continued weight loss has been slow, but steady, without seeming to starve my pup. It must taste good, too, because dog #2 would gladly eat it. Only its expense keeps me from giving the product 5 stars. Chewy has by far the lowest price, which makes it easier to do the right thing and go after those doggie love-handles.
