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.

Customer Reviews

Hill's Prescription Diet m/d Glucose/Weight Management Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Logan Kitty Gives It Two Paws Up! 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. The customer service representative let me know that they received it and would keep it on file. Chewy is the best at going the extra mile.... without ever being asked to. I will update this review with her weight loss after her next visit to the Vet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped with bathroom issues 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the only food my diabetic cat can eat. 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

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What is it's perishable score? My cat was diagnosed with diabetes. For a long time he was eating Purina DM and for some reason, he refused to eat it. One of his doctors said he could eat Hills m/d or w/d or the diabetic version of Royal Canin. He didn't like w/d. But he likes m/d. We keep it in it's original bag and inside a pet food storage bin with a seal. We had bought a 4 lb. bag and by the time it was half full, it started smelling funny. He'd eat it in the morning but refused to eat it in the evening. Fortunately for me, Chewy & Hills, have a 100% guarantee on their food. When I began using a new bag, my cat was vigorously eating his food at the prescribed time, both in the morning and the evening. If your animal is diagnosed with this disease, eating the right food isn't enough, but a diabetic diet does help your animal live a longer healthier life.
