  • Great food for weight loss

    By on

    Our vet prescribed this as a last-ditch effort to get our kitty to lose some weight. We've always fed our cats a high-protein diet with quality food, but even with reducing amounts, he wasn't losing any weigh. Finally, our vet suggested this food and we noticed an immediate difference. Even better, our fur-baby isn't hungry all the time. He's still getting enough food to keep him full and satisfied! :-) Also - Chewy is just amazing! I'd highly recommend becoming a member to anyone that's considering it! Great prices and amazing customer service!

  • Good cat food with a lot of flaws.

    By on

    My cats would eat it, but let me point out that the kibble are LARGE and triangular shape. Almost big as dog kibble! Hill's are known for low quality ingredients so I won't be getting this again considering that price. They didn't help my cat, Anna, lose weight as I bought this for. It did help my OTHER cat, Soxi, lose some weight. After two years, they still haven't lost more than the two pounds they started with. They were overweight when I've adopted them, so even with the lifestyle change, this diet didn't help much.

    So happy my cats love this Hill's food since the Vet put them all on a diet! They love the taste and have been losing weight . Chewy made the whole process very easy and I received the food the day after they received the RX.

  • My cat loves it!

    By on

    I have a Maine Coon who has gained some weight over the last year or so, and my Vet and I decided she needs to lose a couple of pounds. She said this food is excellent, and almost all cats lose weight on it. I have only been using it a couple of weeks so far, but my cat loves it! If you read the ingredients you will see that it contains great nutrition...and Dora already seems to be trimming down.

  • great product

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    i was skeptical at first but this food really is helping my cats lose weight. i mix it still with their regular food and i've noticed that at least one of my cats loves metabolic more than the food they've been eating for years. it's not cheap but if you want your cat to be healthy this is much recommended food. best out there i'm sure.

  • Weird shape

    By on

    My cats didn't lose very much weight on this food but that could be because we have to leave the dry food out all the time since one of my cats has food anxiety issues and chews wires if the food bowl isn't there. This food is a very strange pyramid shape. My cats tend to bite it and leave "crumbs" in the bowl that they never eat. I also have one cat with only 4 teeth and this stuff seems to fall out of his mouth onto the floor pretty often. I have switched to Royal Canin and the pieces are more round. I am not finding them on the floor anymore.

  • Great packaging.

    By on

    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 My Fur Baby was prescribed the Hills Metabolic Weight Management to help her with weight losso.

  • Cats prefer it

    I bought this for my overweight cat, but all the cats want to eat it! I will have to get them the regular Science Diet. They don't like the no grain or other cat foods I have tried.
