Customer Reviews

Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Weight Management Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 158.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great packaging. My Fur Baby was prescribed the Hills Metabolic Weight Management to help her with weight losso. She has always been very picky when it comes to food but she seems to love the dry version so far. She can't get enough as she is always waking me up throughout the night for more. I can only give her a few pieces at a time as she can only have so much to lose the weight she needs to lose. I absolutely love the package of the dry food. It has a nice velcro seal on it, that other brands don't have and keeps the food from getting stale. The bag itself is not paper either like most brands that can tear and rip or get holes in them. Overall, so far I can say I like the product so far and so does my Baby. I hope to be able to update my review in a few months to say how much weight she has lost and if she still loves the food just as much. Hope this review helps!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product was highly recommended by our vet My cat had become overweight and our vet wisely put him on a diet and recommended this metabolic diet. We weaned him onto his new diet over a week's time and he tolerated it well. He loves the food, and is losing weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cat lost weight and maintains his lower weight. My male cat was somewhere around 18 pounds before I started feeding him Hill's Metabolic food, and he came down to 14-15 pounds and has stayed there for several years now. He has free access to it and he doesn't overeat. It's expensive, but it's worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my cat lose weight and stay healthy! This was prescribed for our cat to lose weight but keep her healthy at the same time. She loves this food! And, she is now at an ideal weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, but well worth it. Two sister cats, each 4 years old. Both love to eat and eat too much, and are getting heavier, less healthy, and too lethargic during the day. Vet suggested Hill's Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution. Advertised claim is that it will not only reduce their food fat intake, but will increase their metabolism, and that will help decrease their fat/weight over time. It's about 3-4 weeks later and both cats "seem" a wee bit lighter (this is a new experience). But what is most noticeable is that they are 5 times more active than they've ever been since their kitten days. Even the "once chubbier" of the two is now jumping, chasing and playing with her slightly smaller sister, and getting less chubbier. Oh yeah, both cats really seem to love the taste of this food and that is a quiet blessing in itself. This stuff does cost about 4x more than the very good quality cat food we were using, but having them both this active is worth it, especially if will lead to better/healthier years to come. I'm fully committed to this Hill product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful answer to my cat's weight problem. Wonderful answer to my cat's weight problem. She enjoys it and it appears to keep her full. She needs to lose 14 pounds so this will be a five month process. Food appears to be pricey but since it is so filling you can give smaller portions. Price works out to be the same as her regular food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cats LIKE it! I haven't been using it long enough to know if they are losing weight or not but it is a big plus for me that they like it and I don't have to force them to eat it. Even the cats that aren't on a diet like the food. I'm confident that they will lose weight in time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great so far! My cat really loves this food, and she is losing weight, which was the goal. Plus she truly is less hungry between meals. So as long as it keeps her healthy/happy, I'll be a fan of this food.
