Rated 5 out of 5 by swarner7921 The pate is a good product
My dog started out using the "stew" version of this but they started sending out cans that were real watery. We carefully measure out with a measuring cup the amount she is to have and she was starving with the stew version. We swithced to the pate version and she continues to lose weight and she is not starving. I would recommend the pate but not the stew version

my dog is a 12 year old rottie. I think he has been on this food since march or april this year. he has lost 30 pounds so far. he needs another 10 pounds to loose. he gets 1/5th of a can with warm water and a cup of dry in morning and a cup at supper time. a couple of the cookies in the morning. with a walk before work. he loves all the food which is good cause he is a picky eater. I think it is a very good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ticke The prescription diet food is AWESOME!!!
I have had both my dogs on this food for a little over 4 weeks and they have both lost 3 pounds each - which was very much needed (Yorkie & Rat Terrier). I am working with my pets vet to make sure they are healthy so no worries. Since starting my pets on the prescription diet food, I have seen more energy in both of them and my one that snores and sheds a lot has quit snoring and very limited shedding now. I do mix the wet with the dry prescription diet and I follow the measurements to the "t" on what is needed for weight loss. They will both be on this food about another 2 months and then move on to the maintenance diet. I should have done this earlier for my pets. Its very cost effective and my pets really like the food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MiloMom1 This product is effective for weight loss.
My five year old neutered chihuahua mix, Milo, was slowly but surely gaining weight, eating a high quality organic, canned dog food diet. He really looked pudgy and bulged out of his harness.
I decreased the quantity of food, and added an extra walk, but he did not lose weight. The vet was becoming concerned and recommended Hills Metabolic Weight Loss diet.
It took a week or so to wean Milo onto it, but he ate it heartily.
After three months on Metabolic, he has lost one and a half pounds, and is well on the way to his ideal weight. He has another pound to go!
He looks amazing and is so perky and full of life!
Milo and I are both very happy with Metabolic, and the results he was able to achieve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sjwil5 Our Bichon loves the taste and we believe it will add more healthy years to her life.
Our 8.5 year old Bichon had previously been a somewhat finicky eater and would turn up her nose and walk away from the taste of many dog foods. Even though we had our doubts that she would even try the Metabolic, she sniffed it and immediately took to the taste and has been eating the wet, dry, and treats with gusto! The food is so convenient and easy to serve. The best part is that she has already lost 2.5 pounds. The cost of the food is a little more expensive than some other brands, but when you consider the quality and the health benefits it supplies by adding more healthful years to your beloved family member's life, we feel it is worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mainekezar Works Great!!!
I have four Pugs ranging from 8-10 years old, All of them were overweight and my heaviest was 47 lbs. I have had them on 1/2 can wet plus 1 cup dry every evening and 1 biscuit every morning. No more pizza crust while watching football. It was hard at first because I have always shared my food with them and they looked at me with sweet eyes just asking for a morsel. I no longer free fed them and they like their nightly feeding in separate dishes. I believe in the dog food and also putting them on a restrictive (no pizza, chips) diet has helped them drop 3 pounds each in 2 1/2 months. I Highly recommend this product I like all wish it was a little cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by murraybenny This works! Dogs love it along with kibble.
I use l/3 can for each meal for my two Bijons --
I mash it with some warm water and pour it over their
kibble dog food and they always eat it right up.
It must be working since they haven't gained weight in

Rated 5 out of 5 by amydowney1 great product my dogs switched over very quickly
My dogs have had great results on the wet and dry metabolic. I wish the kibble on the metabolic dry was smaller as my dogs are small. They do eat both products and my one male doxie who is not active lost 2 pounds in one month and my female doxie lost 1.5 pounds in the same time frame. I have told everyone I know who has dogs how great it is. My only real complaint is how expensive the wet food is and that may prohibit me from keeping my dogs on it for as long as they may need it to achieve their weight loss goal.. Also the metabolic treats my dogs also love them!!

Some people found him and brought him to us, we took him to the vet to be operated on. His leg healed the wrong and he now limps but he gets around great. He was just a little puppy we named him lucky. we asked our vet what we should feed him and he replied hills science he's been eating it ever since and loves it thank you for such an outstanding product

My dog loves the metabolic diet food wet and dry, she is doing very well on it also. I would really appreciate some coupons for both wet and dry metabolic diet food. I would really recomend this food for dogs that need to lose or maintain weight. I tried many different brands of food before this one and either my dog didnt like it or it didnt help her at. thank you and again would really appreciate some more coupons for metabolic wet and dry food, website would only let me print 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BJ1161 Metabolic really works
Our 7year old lab is very over weight. I will not share the weight as not to embarrass him. His meal is now the metabolic can, dry & treats. Before he ate another brand of dry food & table food. I did not think he would eat the metabolic but I was surprised. He liked it from the start. We walk a lot but his dad keeps picking him up in car as he thinks we are over doing it. Three months & 17 lbs lost. Kolbe said he can do it just keep the Hills Metabolic Prescription Diet food coming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HeeHaw This product can be used for more than one dog with different needs.
We have two Labs. One is overweight and one is about
right. One is full of energy and races around and swims
vigorously, the other is slower paced and very even
tempered. This food was recommended by a vet to help the overweight dog lose some weight. It does not make the appropriate weight dog lose weight. The dog food
works with the independent metabolism of each dog to
reach and/or maintain a proper weight. Thus it is
easy. It is delivered to the door which adds to the ease
of using it. We are delighted.

My dog Bandi was on Canine RD for about 5 years and had started to pu on weight, then I came on this site and discovered the new Metabolic Rx. I asked my vet if she had heard of it, but she had not. I made her aware of it and she went to the site and read about it, then gave Bandi a prescription to try it. I am really pleased, because he is no longer gaining weight. He has been on it for about 6 months and I hope to be seeing him lose weight soon. He really likes it a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hollybeagle Over weight beagle
Beagles love to eat and eat and our little lady was very overweight. Although she had not developed any serious health problems, she probably would have over time and more weight gain. Our vet took measurements and gave us a plan using Science Diet Metabolic food. We use a combination of wet, dry, and treats. It works. She is right on schedule with her weight loss plan thanks to this schedule. it is rather expensive but worth the cost for a healthy pet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PoodleLover77 If I didn't see it with my own eyes, I would have never believed!
My extremely spoiled and my very over weight, but I still call her "pleasingly-plump" poodle won't eat nothing but people food and a little bit of Hill's regular food when she is very hungry just blew my mind today.
She is 5 years old and has NEVER scarfed down dog food. She is very heavy (should weigh 6 lbs but weighs 11) and is having trouble breathing and walking. So I decided I MUST do something for her health.
I bought this food and the snacks today. I came home from work and fed her the Vet recommended amount and the girl absolutely inhaled this food. I noticed when I was cutting it up for her that it had a pleasant aroma for dog food.
OK, when she ate that she was hanging out at the kitchen as I was fixing dinner waiting for me to drop something - lol. So I asked her if she wanted a snack, and of course, the answer was YES! So I then gave her a metobolic treat. She took it to her favorite bed and guarded it with her life (from her sister who is a maltese). She is still sitting there gaurding her snack and it is an hour later.
This tells me that not only did the metabolic food fill her up when she ate it, but that she wants the snack and is too full to it.
I would sooooo recommend this product to folks that need to help their babies breath better and walk easier (Peaches' knees lock and buckle because she is so obese).
Thanks Hills for these wonderful products....They are worth their weight (no pun intended - lol) in pure gold!
From an extremely satisfied consumer!!!! Kudos to HILLS for bringing us this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PW63 this product works wonders
I have tried many products for my finicky dogs. They have been spoiled in the pass with people food and as a result weight problems. So far I do not know how much weight they have lost but I DO see a difference in their energy levels and joint related weight problems!. This product is GREAT! My dogs love it and act like they can't wait till it's meal time. Thank you for making such a great product that really works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dana3 Product is great if has been transported to sales properly
The product is susceptible to heat and cold and if the product has not been handled properly from manufacture to sale, the product has a crumbly mixture which my dogs (I have three that are on the metabolic wet food) will not eat............certainly I can return the product for a refund but this is a big inconvience if the seller has the same lot,, etc........I have to try another seller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CherBear Best Canned food ever!
My little dog Jody has struggled with her weight. She now eats the Metabolic diet food. The texture and lack of grains in this food makes it so desirable. Jody loves it warmed. A little goes a long way. The canned food along with the dry and the treats, gives my little dog all she needs very day. She is losing weight and she isn't hungry at all. She gets a complete and balanced diet each and every day! And, she loves the taste!

I have 2 of my older Cavalier King Charles on this diet. They are losing weight, just not as fast as I had hoped. I look forward to end results. I hope we are as successful, as we are dedicated to the weight loss program. It's an expensive diet, but if it works than it's priceless towards the lifespan of our Cavaliers. I would love coupons attached to the bags for future purchases. Thanks

My 16 year old dashound loves he taste and I love the fact that it is always easy to cleanup as well as the tip top shape and health he seems to be in at this age. He has been eating it for about a year and his overall health and weight seem to have improved tremendously. We both love this dog food. He has lost some teeth and this is easy for him to eat as well.

We have had our Border Collie on this food for two months. She has gained 5 lbs. She was supposed to lose 5 lbs. We will go back to her regular diet, which I make myself. One of the main ingredients in this prescription expensive food is CORN! No wonder she gained. I am appalled that any vet would recommend this food for any dog!

Sally is my over weight tibetian terrier. When our vet gave us a sample kit to try, I did not have much hope she would eat it. Sally only likes people food, so I gave it a try and she loves it! I give her a mixture of Metabolic canned and Metabolic dry and two Metabolic treats a day. Sally lost 1 pound the first month and 1 pound the second month. I am so happy and so is her vet. She still has 10 more pounds to go to her correct weight.

I am using the Prescription Diet® Canine Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution canned and dry food.

My Lily is a medium small 10yr old mixed who was 32.6 pounds and in 4 months is 27.2 pounds on her way to her goal 25 pounds..
Thank You Hills Pet Nutrition.

If you are looking for a diet for your pet I highly recommend Hills Prescription Diet Metabolic. My vet prescribed it for my overweight Lab. She lost the weight on it and is now in the maintain stage. There are three components to this diet. Dry food, Canned food and Treats. Amounts of each will be prescribed by your Vet. Chewy has the best prices on all of these.
