Rated 3 out of 5 by mamacat too soon to tell how effective it is
My cat has only been on this product for 2 weeks, so I am not sure about the weight loss potential at this time. The one bad thing is that the flavors are very limited. My cat is already very bored with it and rarely eats all I give him. He sneaks to get into the food of the other cats ... not good. I worry that he will stop eating this soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosebud This product works to help kitty lose weight.
Our vetrenarian recommended the Hill's metabolic diet food for our big boy at 24 pounds and our two slightly overweight furrbabies. You cannot expect them to just drop weight, it takes time or you can create major health issues for kitties. They love it and they love the Hill's metabolic treats that are also available. Our big boy over the last few years has lost 3 to 4 pounds. The smaller two have lost about 1.5 pounds each. If you have an overweight kitty you might ask your vet about Hill's Metabolic food and treats.

I want to help keep my pets weight down. He wouldn't eat at first, but I continued to keep feeding him and now he has lost some weight. I'm happy that I can see the difference.

On the recommendation of our vet my cat was put on this food. It's not made from chicken it's made from pork. It made him so sick, throwing up, pooping, and he just stopped eating. We've gone to CORE Indoors & seem to be ok. That's my kitty yours may do just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lilu My pet lost weight
I feel that Metabolic Diet worked better than typical low calorie or low fat poducts. My cat lost significant weight in a relatively short amount of time. She became more energetic which, I think, added to the weight reduction. Her coat also became very shiney. The science that went into choosing the ingredients for this product really seems to be working.
The reasons that I did not give 5 stars are these: 1) it is a little pricey, 2) I don't think my cat really loves the taste because she was reluctant when switching and she usually eats anything (therefore the weight issue), 3) the nuggets for the dry food are too large; she is a cat that swallows pieces whole and vomits food that has large pieces, and lastly, 4) I personally dislike the smell. I've served other canned foods that smell much nicer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have 2 long haired cats that both need to control their weight. A side benefit I have found from using this product is that they no longer get knots in their hair which used to be a huge problem. No one seems to have an explanation, but in addition to weight control it has been a terrific product for me. Grooming is now very simple

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brdlady45 This product helped to give my cats new bounce and vitality!
I had 3 overweight cats, and finally decided to do something to help them lose some weight. After getting them transitioned over to Hills Metabolic wet food, it was amazing the difference I saw in them after a few months. Not only did all three of them lose weight, but all three of them became like new cats. They seem to have so much more energy, are more playful, and just appear to look and feel better. I think that overall they are much happier, I know I am.

I never leave negative reviews but I just have to warn people of this. My cat was fed dry diet food for the first 8 years of his life. He got extremely obese weighed 27 pounds. My vet recommended I switch him to can food with no bi-products. Ive fed him a great hollistic food for the last 3 years and he's lost 8 pounds. I wanted to get a few more pounds off of him to hit his target weight so I tried this. I am astonished by the ingredients in this food! They have enough money to use holistic ingredients so why arent they!? And it smells horrible! My cat did not get full off of it and did not lose an ounce after trying it for a month. I wish you all the best with this I REALLY wanted it to work! PLEASE do your research on cats foods!
