Description

Almost 50% of the pet population is overweight. Even a little extra weight can lead to serious health problems. Extra weight reduces play time, impacts mobility and affects the general health of your cat. Factors contributing to weight gain include age, lack of exercise and overfeeding. Many commercial pet foods are loaded with salt and fat, which improve the taste but also have dramatic effects on your cat's weight and overall health. Along with frequent physical exercise, choosing the right food plays a very important role in helping cats reach their proper weight. At Hill's, nutritionists and veterinarians have developed clinical nutrition especially formulated to help cats effectively lose weight and maintain appropriate glucose levels.

Key Benefits

  • Clinical nutrition especially formulated to help cats effectively lose weight and maintain appropriate glucose levels

  • Therapeutic L-carnitine levels helps maintain normal fat metabolism in the liver

  • Excellent customer service and shipment

    By on

    Fast services, so much better than other online ordering sites for prescription diets that have strung me a long forever! Chewy contacted my vet quickly, and the food was here days later! My cat LOVES the food and I'm surprised, she is picky and didn't really like her W/D and after research I changed to M/D. She likes the pellet shaped food better and when I gave her a sample she chowed it down! Looking forward to automatic shipments! We live in the middle of no where, and none of the vets have M/D so this is a savior!

  • Great product

    By on

    Very pleased with this product. All five felines like it which is my biggest problem. They have been using it for many years. It was recommended by my cat's Vet and was very happy with the great service from Chewy to have this product delivered to my door every month. Chewy was very quick and responsive in getting the doctors approval and getting my order processed. Awesome service.

  • Logan Kitty Gives It Two Paws Up!

    By on

    My 13 year old cat's vet prescribed this to help get her weight down. She can be quite picky about what she eats and I was very happy that she likes this. The pellets are nice and small which are great for mature cats. The ingredients are high quality which being a pet Mama I'm picky about. Until this food she was strictly eating grain free dry food. She does not seem to mind the change. So far no stomach upset or bathroom troubles. The bag also has a unique Velcro seal. I've never seen this on cat food before but it's terrific! The customer service at Chewy was superb as always. Since this is a prescription food I had to submit a prescription from my Vet.

I will update this review with her weight loss after her next visit to the Vet. … more

  • Helped with bathroom issues

    By on

    Our two cats were adopted after being cared for for almost a year at our local animal shelter. They were both found and there was no one to provide history. They are not siblings, but grew very attached to each other while in the "hospital". Both had diarrhea. After all tests came back negative for parasites and bacteria, this food has brought them to normal. They seem quite happy with this food and wait by their food bowls at mealtime.

  • Fighting diabetes

    My kitty was on W/D. We still couldn't get his sugar down with food and insulin. Switched to M/D without a problem! Tygee loves the flavor and we are controlling his glucose levels much better!

  • my cat likes it

    By on

    My 11-year old cat weighed 25 lbs. The vet said he ought to weigh about 12-15 lbs. and recommended I feed him Hill's Prescription Diet m/d cat food. I'm delighted that my cat actually likes the food. He's been on it for about 6 weeks... and is now down to 23 lbs. So far, so good.

  • This is the only food my diabetic cat can eat.

    By on

    She seems to be satisfied buy she can only have 1/2 cup a day so she is always hungry. I feel like I am starving her. She has gained her 4 lbs. back and she is beautiful and can jump again. So bottom line it is helping her along with her 2 shots a day.c

  • Our cat could not wait!

    By on

    We had the bag of new food near him and one day we found that he had ripped open the bag with his teeth and was eating his new fresh "crunchies!" He loves this food. He is diabetic, so it is supposed to be good for him, which is good. I took the bag away and put the rest of the food in other containers for appropriate times. : )
