Rated 5 out of 5 by Sue17 The proof is in the pudding (or the canned food in this case)
My beautiful cat who is 7 years old was diagnosed with diabetes. The vet recommended trying this prescription food before using insulin. We did and her blood sugar went from 290 down to 190 in ONE week!! The food is on the expensive side but its still cheaper than buying insulin. We are going back next week for a follow up. He wants to see her levels around 150.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pegleg Outstanding quality, VERY well received.
We cannot imagine ever feeding another food to our wonderful cat. She is so eager to enjoy her new diet, a refreshing change from her previous behavior with other brands. It delights us to know she is receiving the best nutrition possible.

My cat suffers from diabetes and by using Hills Prescriiption m/d, he is symptom free. He's been eating m/d for a little more than a year and he looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angie88 It was a winner!
My cat was recently diagnosed with diabetes and we've been trying several different kinds of food. He usually prefers wet food but if it's chunks in a gravy, he just licks off the gravy. This was a pate style and he liked it! It's been tough getting him to eat, so this is a relief!

My diabetic cat, Molly, has been on The Hills MD (2 cans per day) & daily insulin injections for 4 years. She likes this food. It helps to maintain her BG levels. She goes on remission about 1 time a year. I continue to give her this food when on remission & helps her to stay on remission for as long as possible. I am thankful that this food for diabetic cats is available. It would be very difficult to control her diabetes with out MD.

Rated 1 out of 5 by greenbeagle13 My Cat HATES this stuff
My cat was recently diagnosed as being diabetic. This was prescribed for her. She wouldn't touch it. After her health continued to decline because she wasn't eating, I began to research this whole pet food stuff. I now see why she became diabetic (too much dry food filled with carbs). So, after my research I began feeding her a high protein, low carb canned food (not the grocery store kind either). I compared the carbs and discovered the m/d food was 14% carbs and the other ones only 2% and 4%. Plus, my cat scarfed this food up. I advised my vet, and she agreed that I could continue feeding her the food my cat would actually eat! I believe it is possible that she can become insulin free from a diet change, eating a diet meant for cats. Maybe your cat would like this m/d stuff so I can only speak for mine. But, do your own research on all this stuff for your cat's health and quality of their life...

Rated 2 out of 5 by Zenaven Cat would not eat.
The cat I bought this for is a dry food eater only. I was hoping to get him to start eating wet food as he had crystals in his urine. He is very stubborn!

Rated 3 out of 5 by LisaViolinka Our recently diagnosed with diabetes cat refuses to eat it:(
The can is big enough for at least two portions. When we ordered the first case, our 14 y.o. was eating it fine. She has never been finicky about food in general. We were feeding her fancy feast before and have noticed that her fur is less shinny and looks more separated on m/d. She has just also started with insulin shots, but I think that her worsening fur condition is because of new food. I also wish it would come in different tastes and not only pork. The texture of food looks good and moisture enough. After she finished the first case (24 cans), she now refuses to eat it and I have the food from her bowl away. I now try to mix fancy feast with m/d and she eats it better.
