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

  • Clinically proven low carbohydrate, high protein nutrition helps your cat burn fat and maintain lean muscle
  • Clinically proven weight control plus glucose management
  • High level of taurine to help maintain normal levels of insulin
  • High level of arginine to support insulin secretion
  • Added antioxidants to control cell oxidation and promote a healthy immune system
  • Made in the USA

Rated 5 out of 5 by My cats are on an M/D Prescription diet that is good for them. I'm very satisfied with my cat food order. You had the exact weight I needed and the delivery service was right on time. cost was reasonable too. Thank you for carrying the product I needed. August 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this service!!! I have a diabetic cat and ordering prescription food was about the same price as petsmart (maybe even a little cheaper) and was very easy, they even contacted the vet so I didn't have to send anything in!!! July 30, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. February 26, 2016
