Rated 5 out of 5 by crnanancy 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.

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.

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!

Excellent product, has helped get our overweight dogs back into a healthy range. Most foods on the market are generally fine for active dogs, but as they age or get inactive then the weight can become an issue. It was vet recommended to us.

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!

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bailey This food does it!
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:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by snickerd Miniature Aussie Loosing
My Miniature Aussie weighed 52 lbs. The vet said last winter she should weigh 24 by measurements, but in actuality she thought 30 was more realistic. I put her on the Metabolic diet in Dec. 2014. I haven't weighed her, but she has her waistline back! I would say she is around 40 lbs but could be less. She is 12 years old. I have had her on the Hills RD and she was hungry all the time ad did not loose weight. She has battled weight since she was about 6 or 7. So, on the Metaboiic diet she is loosing weight, feels great and has her "puppy" back and isn't hungry all the time. It is wonderful!!

We have 3 doxies that need to lose a little weight. We tried everything and nothing worked. They have been on this food about 5 weeks now and have all lost pounds. Chewy.com was also the least expensive place to purchase it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rocky It Works!
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.

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.

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.

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!
