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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PEANUTBUTTER 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!

Our vet recommended Metabolic Canine Dry food for both our dogs. The food was great but the vet's prices were not. My daughter told us about Chewy and I now order our dog and cat food (CD cat food) for our 5 cats. Chewy saves us a great deal of money and we are still getting the vet recommended food for our pets. THANK CHEWY

Rated 5 out of 5 by Woody I know this is what my dog needs.
My Golden needs to be on a strict diet and he is having a hard time transitioning over to just dry dog food.
So I have to mix some wet in order to get him to eat it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kelleyking 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Momster It works!
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.

Great product! Helped our dog lose 3lbs in two weeks. She loved the food, and has a lot more energy. She still has another 4lbs to lose, and we are confident she will meet her goal. Thanks, Metabolic for making it easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary13 This product has great features.
I have a Lab and he is overweight by 20+ lbs. Per Vet's suggestion, I ordered the food from Chewy.com. I saved a bunch!!! My dog loves the food and looks forward to his meal. Initially I felt sorry for the quantity the Vet advised, but I can see my pet more active and I could feel that my dog was already losing weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Liz08 weight loss results
After starting my dog on it about 2.5 weeks ago he is already down 4 pounds. He has about 25 to go still, but he is making great progress! I did not have high hopes at first after my vet told us it could take 6 months to see results, but prior to starting him on this food we tried just decreasing the amount of food and treats we were giving him and increasing exercise and nothing worked. We even had his thyroid tested, which came back fine. People should be warned though that this seems to give the dog "puppy-like" energy. Despite the price, it is well worth it to have a happy, healthy dog! My dog also gets very excited for meal times and finds the food very tasty!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PoodleLover2 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.

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 4 out of 5 by Leomarie5 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.

by Logan88 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shibamom A miracle for my dog
Like many of you my dog was overweight by 10 pounds. After I put my 16 year old Shiba Inu down my younger Shiba went into grieving and was very depressed. He didn't even want to go for a walk and when I would hook the leash to him and pull on him he wouldn't budge. And he always loved his walks. After about a year of this behavior he had gained a lot of weight. I cut back on his food to the point that I thought it was almost cruel. But he still didn't lose weight and in fact continued to gain. My vet suggested Hills Metabolic diet and I started him on it 8 weeks ago. He prefers the canned but I give him the dry as treats. He eats less than is recommended and never seems hungry and he loves it. He is following the chart exactly as was printed out by my vet. He has lost 5 pounds in 8 weeks so he is halfway to his goal loss of 10 pounds. I also got a shiba inu puppy for him (and me) and he is now able to really play and run with her without tiring or grunting. I am so impressed with this food. Even when he reaches his goal weight I will continue him on this as I don't want the weight to come back. Great product with great results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JBWM74 HIGHLY RECOMMEND
My 13 year old Chihuahua was 3 pounds over weight. We tried all the weight loss foods on her with no results. Our Vet finally recommended a diet plan for her that included 1/4 c of metabolic Kibble and 1 treat a day. The treat was too large for her so I mashed it up and put a tsp. of low sodium fat free chicken broth on it. She ate that in the morning and the 1/4 cup of kibble in the evening. She has lost 2 1/2 pounds and will be at her goal of 6 pounds very soon. Since then we have added 1 tbsp. of Canned metabolic diet to her kibble. She loves it and she is now more energetic. She has a seizure disorder and a heart murmur. Loosing this weight is very beneficial to her health.

by Toby09 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.

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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pugpup 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lharris305 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!
