Rated 5 out of 5 by Peachy For losing weight it is great!
My terrier, Penne, has become slightly larger in a year by a whole 9 lbs! I was going crazy with what to do as she loves to EAT! My vet, suggested to try Metabolic, as it could possibly work. l did, and in 5 weeks she has lost 1.25 lbs! I am hoping for the next month to be higher, but I will take what she does. She still is always hungry, so I bought the biscuits too. She gets one a day at night. It is still difficult, but she is losing. I have to say I have 3 other dogs that are not overweight that doesn't help. She wants their food too! She is 29.5 now and should be about 20! Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by Char63 Balanced weight loss food.
My dogs don't realize they're on a diet. They loved this food immediately at one-quarter less the amount of their previous food, feeding twice a day. I add hot water and let it sit for a few minutes and they love the gravy it produces. They are full, content and their poop is firmer. In two weeks they've lost one pound, which I've heard is equivalent to 10 lbs. human weight lost. Our goal is two months on this food, per our veterinarian's instructions, and then will reassess their diet. They look healthier, act younger, and have more energy.

Can't say enough about weight control for our dog. It's the BEST dog food we have found for our 8 year old English Black Lab for weight and health.

My dog has such a cute face that it's hard to say no when you're eating to give him table scrapes. But over time, we started to notice his enormous stomach. Took him to the vet to find out if he had a thyroid problem or if something else was wrong. After blood work and thyroid test we realized we were over feeding him. He was 124 lbs which is way to large for a collie/chow mix dog. Our vet recommended a Metodolic dog food that you can only get by perscrption. We can see in less than two weeks of him eating this dog food he has more engergy and is starting to lose weight. He still has a long way to go but we know we are on the right track to get him down to 80 lbs

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wendy57 Reommend this to anyone with over weight dogs
My vet (VCA) recommended this dog food for my over weight Chihuahua (26 lbs) should be 12. She gave me the amounts to feed her- I mix canned with the dry. And in the past year she has lost a total of 7 lbs, yep she is down to 19 lbs using metabolic dog food. She gets around a lot better and my other Chihuahuas love it too... Yes the chunks are alittle big but it doesn't seem to bother any of them because the food isn't as solid as the other brands...light and airy. Best thing I could have done for my dogs.

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.

We were prescribed this food by out vet for our 13" beagle that is a foodie and eats everything and anything. Cutting out extras and putting her on this food a few months ago she has lost 6 lbs. She loves the food.

Product has done wonders for our 2 year old choc lab - after 6 months she has lost over 20% of her body weight. Hoping to move to a mtce program in another few months once we get another 10lbs off... We used other products to get weight off but nothing works like Hills

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer worked for my dog
My dog was the perfect candidate for this product. She gets no food other than what I weigh and measure for her. So when I switched from grocery store brands to this brand, we would know for sure if it worked or not. She lost 7% of her body weight in the first month.

I have a 6 yr old Bichon Frise and he was overweight weighing in at 29.1 - my vet started Bogie on it in 4/2015 and by July he has went to 24.2 - I was so excited! So I thought I could change him back to natural balance for fat dogs, he threw it up it didn't even dissolve. Everytime I try to go back to original food he gains weight, so from now on he's staying on this.

Our bulldog is overweight and his vet recommended this food for him. He loves it and it seems to be working. He has just started on it so hopefully in 2-3 months we will really see some results.

We have put my very overweight dog on several types of foods/diets over the last year and a half and have been unsuccessful with them all. We took her in for thyroid monitoring an was told her numbers were in range. We were about to give up when this formula was suggested to us. She has been on it for about a month and is visibly thinner. She loves the taste and seems very excited to eat it during mealtimes.

My dog has struggled with his weight always, and even being on thyroid medication has not helped with his weight issue. I'd tried other diet dog foods and he always seemed ravenous, which caused additional worries about what he would find to eat since he thought he was 'starving'! He is finishing his first bag of Hills Prescription Metabolic and it's working! He has lost weight, has more energy, and has never acted like he is 'starving' between meals. This product so far seems like a miracle cure. He likes the flavor, too, and for the first time in his life, acts 'full' after eating! One caveat: the dog has to remain on this food, and the volume you feed will go UP once the ideal weight has been achieved. So, it's not an inexpensive solution, but for the dog that has serious weight issues and always seems "hungry", I highly recommend this food.

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.

I thank Chewy for contacting my vet and obtaining a prescription for the Science Hill food that I needed. My order was received in no time. I will order again this product from Chewy. My dog appears to love this Science Hill Metabolic dry food. Also, the price was very reasonable. Thank you Chewy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CopperCooper Great for weight loss and older dogs
My dogs (12 and 10 years old) are finally losing weight since switching from Science Diet WD to Metabolic. They actually love the taste of this dry food. I usually mix a small amount of a quality cannned food into the dry, but they love the taste of Metabolic by itself. It is amazing food. My daughter's dog (8 years old) has joint problems from years of frisbee competition and she is doing much better on Metabolic and has also lost weight. I have tried all the name brand "high quality" dry foods but Metabolic beats them all. My dogs really like the food and the our vet is pleased that they are losing weight.

Metabolic Weight Dry Dog Food from Hill's Prescriptive is the best weight loss food our Golden Retriever has ever been on. She is 9 years old and had been overweight with the beginnings of hip trouble due to weight. We started her on this food, she weighed 78 lbs. With in 6 months, she weighed 66 pounds. Another 2 months, she hit her ideal weight of 63.1 lbs. She is healthy, running and playing with no current hip or leg issues. She acts like she's a puppy:)
