Customer Reviews

Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets DM Dietetic Management Formula Dry Cat Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 151.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY happy! My cat who has IBD is coming back to life. She lost a lot of weight due to her condition and through meds and change in diet she is doing much better than expected. Her doctor recommended this food and it is helping her to gain weight. I wish she liked the canned version of it as canned/wet food is much better for cats than dry but right now weight gain is the goal for my girl. I also must comment on how amazing Chewy.com is. When I knew my cat would eat this food (from a sample from her doctor) I ordered it on a Tuesday evening with the doctor info since is requires a prescription (so they had to call her doctor). Here's the amazing part...the food was delivered the following day less than 24 hours from when I placed the order. Granted, I ordered something else so it was free expedited shipping but I find this so amazing and completely awesome how quickly Chewy.com ships orders. My cat really needed this food as evidenced by it's effectiveness for her so I am so happy it arrived so promptly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its a little below average Not sure if this food is helping my cat with his diabetes. He gets insulin shots every day recommended by his vet. He is still getting symptoms of high blood glucose such as extreme hunger, which I find weird. He hasn't gained any weight. I read on a forum somewhere that feeding diabetic cats dry food is no good because wet food has less carbs and other stuff that make the cats sugar go up. I am starting to believe that this is true. Plus, this bag is expensive and doesn't last me very long. I cant see myself paying 50 dollars every 2 months just to feed an animal..sorry to say. I will most likely invest in wet food next time around. I am satisfied with the chewy website overall because the Product shipped very quick and offer free delivery over 50 dollars. They also keep me updated on my delivery by email which is also a plus. I will order from this site again, just a different type of food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 15 yr. old Diabetic Cat Loves It It's been 3 months and I have noticed change. My senior kitty has been battling Diabetes since he was 10 (on and off with remission). After insulin expenses and inconvenience, I turned to Purina Pro DM. He devours this! Once a day in conjunction with wet food, he has been noticeably shiny, more active for his age, and has not peed in the house. The next autoship will be in January so I hope that this review stays the same as time goes on. Expensive, but cheapest I could find it on Chewy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Feed to your diabetic cat if you never want it to get better This food is an abomination. Please look at the ingredients. The main ingredient is by-product meal. If you have a diabetic cat and the Vet has pushed this food on you, for the love of God, please go buy EVO Turkey and Chicken for your cat. It has the same high protein/fat/fiber nutritional structure as Dietetic, but it is made with real ingredients, and not by-product meals. If I hadn't changed my cat's food from the garbage-fest that is Dietetic to EVO, her blood sugar never would have got into the appropriate daily range of 100-300. Feeding Dietetic for 2 months kept her blood sugar in the 330 and higher range for 2 months, despite increasing insulin doses. After feeding EVO for just one week and keeping insulin doses the same, my cat's blood sugar has dropped to 310 at peak. Please do NOT feed your cat Dietetic. There is nothing medicinal about it, and EVO is even less expensive! I understand this response is candid, but if you truly love your cat, do NOT feed Dietetic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very low price, fast service My cat is diabetic, and I've been feeding him "Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets DM Dietetic Management Formula Dry Cat Food" in the 10 pound bag for three years now. This food is expensive, and I wasn't able to get a better price, either at my vet or from my favorite online retailer. When I received an ad in the mail for Chewy, I couldn't believe the very low price! I saved nearly half, by combining a coupon, free 1-2 day shipping and setting up automatic shipments. Chewy even handled the prescription verification with my vet! The DM food is exactly what I have been feeding my cat, it's convenient and a great price from Chewy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! My elderly cat (16) suddenly became lethargic and my vet diagnosed him with diabetes. I had always fed my 2 (litter mate) cats a high quality dry food, but evidently dry doesn't have enough protein. This new food, although expensive, seems to be helping him. I do have to give him daily insulin injections, bu he is getting better and his blood sugar is lower. I am VERY happy as my "boys" are my family members - in addition to my 3 adult children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purine ProPlan DM I just tried this food as one of my cats has been diagnosed with diabetes. He absolutely loves it and has no issues as a result of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purrfect My overweight cat was prescribed this after a near fatal bought of pancreatitis and hepatic lipidosis. She has now fully recovered and is back to her chubby self after having a feeding tube for 9 weeks. She loves this food, as does my younger 1 year old cat. They cant get enough of it so now it is all I buy!
