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.

Tasty diet food for overweight dogs
This food has such a great, desirable odor that draws the dogs to their dish. My doxie lost 1.5 lbs in one month; he loves his Metabolic! My other dog is also drawn to the food, so I give him a few kibbles to add flavor to his food.

My over weight Tibetian Terrier, Sally has lost several pounds on Hills Metabolic canned, dry dog food and the Metabolic treats. She really likes the food and she was a people table food dog before this change in diet. Can't wait until her next physical in March her Vet will be pleased.

It actually works!!!!
My dog has been on this food since the end of January and has lost 10lbs already. My other dog is a picky eater and ate this food for awhile also. It's a little pricy, but it does work!!!

Our vet told us that MinPin was grossly overweight and that they are competetive eaters. They will consume as much food as they can find. With risk of back injury and possible paralysis to hind legs we immediately took vet's advise and started on Hill Science Diet and then Metabolic. MinPin lost a third of its weight and has been healthy and active since. Great product gave us our dog back the way she was. Thanks

This food has done wonders in helping our Golden Retrievers get into and stay in the best shape of their lives! I highly recommend talking to your vet about this food if you have a pet that needs to shedo some weight.

My dog loves this food
Our vet put our Gus(Samoyed)on a prescription diet. 20 lbs overweight. Since he can be a picky eater, I was afraid he might not get the nourishment he needed. Gus loves this food. He is more active now to play with his sister and has that sparkle back in his eyes. The food even smells great. It is hard to restrict your dogs food, but it helps to know that he really enjoys what he's eating. It has only been a couple of weeks on this diet, but I'm sure we have a healthier, happy dog. He also loves the dog treat in this brand.

This does work!
If you read the stuff that comes with this, it takes months to work. My overweight dog has lost 3 pounds in six months, my vet says this is the right way to lose weight, slow. She hasn't been able to lose anything for years. My dog loves it and the matching treats you can buy. Much cheaper here than through my vet!

My Golden went from 117 to 99 and gobbles the food.

Our dog is very overweight and our vet told us about this food. I was very surprised to see a difference in our dog after only two weeks. We will continue to use this product to get the rest of the weight off Beau so he has a very long life.

Two thumbs up.. Chewy.com is great no more trips to the pet store!!!

My Lab, Bleu, likes the Hill's Dry Food
My vet said, time to shed some of Bleu's weight. He suggested the Hill's RX Diet Metabolic dry food, canned food and the treats. I am very happy that my girl likes all three of the products.

German shep loves taste
Our GS needs to loose 10 lbs and other "diet" foods have not helped - the verdict is still out because she has only been on this food for 4 weeks but she loves the food - both dry and canned.

Dog Likes Metabolic
I am not a big fan of the ingredients in any of the Hill's dry dog foods, but I needed something drastic for an overweight dog. My large dog with a sensitive stomach tolerates the Metabolic food well and seems to love it. He appears to be losing weight after 1.5 bags and I will get him weighed soon so that will be the proof. I also use the Metabolic dog biscuits which the dog loves.
When I received the box from Chewey, the tape on the box had come loose and the dog food bag was split open on one side. I think a move to a plastic bag rather than a paper bag would be a good thing.

My rescue dog is enjoying the food and losing weight.
My dog has been on the food for 3 months and is slowly losing weight. She had tipped the scales at 72 plus pounds. She is a medium sized Shiba Inu mix and should weigh more like 40-45 lbs. I feed her 1 cup twice a day. She doesn't act hungry in between and looks forward to feedings.

Weight loss has started!
We put my Cardigan on the Hill's Metabolic after she gained 3 lbs over winter, and she was already 7 lbs overweight. In the first month, she has lost 1.2 lbs. Some of the weight loss would be from the increase in exercise (now that the deep snow is gone) but also from the food source. She also is given the Hill's metabolic biscuits for a snack. She seems to love the food, and has had no adverse affects from it. Very satisfied with this product!

This product has great features. My miniature pincher loves this food!! Gobbles every bite down every day!! She has lost 5 lbs on this food. From this point forward, I will not feed her any other dog food except the Metabolic!! She is a diabetic too.

This product works great.
We have had our dog on multiple diets, on this food our bulldog has lost over 16 lbs and is acting like a puppy. He has much more energy and is a lot more active.

My 11 year old lab gained weight after my daughter came back from college and table fed her. She was 88 lbs. She has been eating this product for over 9 months, starting at 84 lbs. She is now a svelte 71 lbs. She loves the food (though labs eat anything) and she seems to be more satisfied. The only drawback is the expense, She is on maintenance now which requires a lot more of the food than when she was reducing. My 6 year old golden also seemed to be heftier and we switched her to this food as well. Though we haven't weighed her, she seems to have lost weight as well. I would recommend but they need a follow up product for maintenance because of the cost.

Great for maintaining weight
We have a Jack Russell who had a terrible problem every winter of gaining a ton of weight. Actually her weight would flucuate by as much as 5-6 pounds every few days. She just looked unhealthy.
One vet suggested putting her on a green bean diet which we did last year. But, she did not like green beans. She would be hungry and then get mean. Not good at all!
Since she has been on the Hills Metabolic diet dog food her weight has been very consistent. Her coat looks good and she has lots of energy. She likes it ans is a very happy dog. No doubt, it is a great dog food.
