  • Hill's R/D Dry cat food

    By on

    With two cats over 20 lbs, it's fortunate my cats really like this food. Hopefully it will help them achieve a more normal weight and maintain good health. It's rare that my cats will eat anything "special" so Hill's R/D has an excellent formula. It's very expensive but well worth it if it works.

  • Hill's Prescription Diet r/d Weight Reduction

    By on

    Love this product. Using it as replacement for Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic. After initial resistance from our vet who preferred Metabolic, we insisted and are so glad. There is not that much difference in the ingredients but the pellets are 1/4th of the size compared to the metabolic. We have an overweight female cat and one male that is not but has gum and teeth issues. He is eating this food much better than the other. And pudgy girl has already lost more weight!

    My vet put my cat diagnosed with mega colon on this food. She loves it! This food is not meant for every cat but if prescribed it appears to work and make for a happy kitty. Btw, chewy.com is great. I've been using them for several years and I'm happy with the online and live customer service.

  • It works just like the Dr said it would

    By on

    I was feeding my CHP the science diet light but when she weighted in at 29 lbs. the Dr. said to start feeding her the R/d and the pounds would come rolling off of her. 3 months later and she is down 4 lbs. She is playing like she should and running around. WE are all happy!! Ps. I had to cut way down on the treats.

  • Cats will eat this.

    My finicky but overweight cat will eat this food. Other cats we have don't mind it. It is not cheap. Mixing it with regular adult food helps.

    By on

    Our cats require prescription food and I've been paying thru the nose at one of those pet big box stores. Chewy got me twice the amount for only 25% more than I paid for the smaller bag. Saving $33 a month. Wow, plus it's delivered right to my front door for free. Wish I knew about you two years ago.

  • This products is doing its job. It's Hills r/d for cats

    By on

    The product is working. Edithann, my calico cat, has lost about a pound and a half since she's been eating this. She's losing the weight slowly, which is as it should be. Edithann obviously likes the cat food.

  • Food for Fat Cats!

    By on

    This is a weight reduction diet and will help your cats lose excess weight when fed appropriately. Since I have a multi-cat household and portion feeding is difficult for me, I use this to help keep my fat cats from getting fatter. I mix this with Perfect Weight (also a Hill's product) since I have 3 cats- all of varying weights (a lean, a "stout" and a "Fat"). It has kept the bigger kitties from gaining and the lean girl from losing. They prefer the taste of the Perfect Weight over this (and that's why the kitties only gave this one 4 stars) but this helps as a filler.
