Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Canine Dry Dog Food
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.

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.

This product is great for bulldogs.
The dry dog food is good to mix with the canned dog food.

Works quickly without hunger
Our 12 yr old lab romped with a young dog all day and couldn't stand up the next morning, having done damage to a back disc. As part of her treatment her vet placed her on the Hill's metabolic. We introduced it over a week by mixing it with her old food. It did not cause any diarrhea or vomiting and she lost weight even though she was also taking steroids. She lost 20 lbs in a little over 3 months and did not beg for food between feedings (twice a day).
She is once again a lean active dog. We feel like this food has prolonged her life and improved its quality.

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

keeps my dog full
It works! Tried many diet foods with no luck. My dog has lost 1 lb in two weeks, with 2 more to go. He weighs 10 lbs. My only wish is that they had a smaller kibble for the smaller dog.

This was my first order with Chewy and I am completely satisfied. It 's less expense than the pet store and delivered to my house. I have set up a 6 week auto reorder and can adjust if needed. It's great.

Ultimate diet plan! I give kibble inside a treat ball...exercise, nutrition, and weight loss

This product works
My lab was over weight and we had tried everything to get some weight off of her. When the vet suggested this product I was hesitant due to the price but decided we had to do something and it worked. She loves it and it did not upset her bowels at all, she started eating it right away with no problems. She is almost to her suggested weight.

My dog loves this food...and he is losing weight. It's a win-win for both of us!

Our dogs love the food and have lost and kept weight off.

My dog loves his food
From the very beginning it was a little bit of a hassle but I'm satisfied with the product.

The Metabolism dog food by Hill's Science has been great for our dogs for initial weight loss and ongoing weight maintenance. We have Dachshunds, who are notorious for weight gain. Even during periods when our dogs had to be on steroids for health issues, they've maintained their weight. Our Vet says they're her poster children for healthy weight maintenance!
