Customer Reviews

Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Weight Management Chicken Flavor Dry Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 232.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product definitely helps with weight loss. My Beagle has been on this food for the past 18 months, when we started he was 37.4lbs, and he has lost a total of 10.4lbs, he is down to 27lbs. It may ot seem like a lot of weight, but he has lost over 30% of his body weight in the past 18 months. He is so much more healthier now. We will keep him in this food, and adjust accordingly. I recommend this to anyone with an overweight dog.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too soon to see results, but Sadie seems to like it! We have only been feeding Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Weight Management food for about 2 weeks now, still mixing it with a little of the old food. So far, so good. Our 3 year old Lab seems to like her new food, and since she actually gets more of it than the old food, that makes her happy. We haven't seen any weight loss results quite yet, but hope it helps her in the coming months. I will say the food definitely produces a lot more output and makes her have to go a lot more often. Which I guess is to be expected if she is eating more and what she is eating is more fillers, but wow... it is quite a lot more. I'll try to come back and update my review in a few months when I have more clear results.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not to happy about it. My dog is a malamute/aussie shepherd mix. When we adopted him at 9 months he weighed a sleek 77 lbs. After about 3 1/2 years of age he started to gain weight. My vet recommend metabolic at 2 cups per day (seems everything I have read requires more). But instead of loosing he is gaining. He is at about 102 and will be 7 this month. The vet keeps making comments about it even tho he said 2 cups per day. At this rate I do not believe it works for my dog

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canine weight management food My vet recommended this for my puggy pug and he loves it and actually so do the other members of my pack but they do not need to loose any weight. I get to feed him more food as recommended on the package than I would normally so he's pretty happy about that and is always full now. We have just started on his diet and I haven't weighed him yet but he looks like he has slimmed down a tad. Really pleased with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product For a dry food both my dogs will eat it. Our puppy sneaks a few pieces every chance he gets so I usually put two or three pebbles with his puppy food and he always seeks this out. We are mixing the dry with the wet (same brand) in hopes our over weight Schnauzer will lose some weight. Will know at the end of January. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far my dachshund has lost 3 lbs on this prescription diet. I was so happy with my first order with Chewy.com. I had to get a prescription from our Vet before they could complete my order. I was surprised when my Vet charged me $10 to do this. However, Chewy.com deducted that $10 from my order. I will definitely order from them again. I consider that going above and beyond. Thank you Chewy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My old dog likes this food on its own My rescue dog has put on weight after being spayed, so my vet suggested this.MaggieMae likes the food, without me having to add anything to it. She is starting to lose weight, after being on it two weeks, hopefully more, once the weather gets nicer and we can take longer walks. Thank you for a terrific product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Veterinary recommendation As our veterinarian recommended this food for our dog, we were pleased to be able to order it through Chewy.com. It arrived so quickly and we have already reordered the larger size. As our dog had put on weight, this dry food is supposed to aid in the weight loss. She loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best For Weight Loss & Maintenance When my dog ended up at the vet with a sore back, they had to reweigh him because they could not believe how much weight he had gained since his last visit. Our vet recommended this diet and we couldn't be happier with the results. Best of all, our dog loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat loves it! I used to buy dry cat food in the supermarket and my cat loved it, but the vet wanted her on a weight management diet. I was worried that she wouldn't like the new food, but she took to it right away. Very pleased that my cat is happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Girthy Bulldog! My 12 yr. old bulldog is a bit fluffy. She needed to lose a pound or two (like most of us). Her vet recommended Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Weight Management food and treats. It really works and my Biscuit loves it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from expensive food, it's helping with weight loss It seems to be helping him lose weight and he loves the taste of it. I'm hoping that we can switch to something less pricey. We've been using wheat free for a few years now. My dog was always hungry no matter how much we gave him and then he started gaining weight. The vet recommended this food stating that the wheat free has too many calories for dogs. My dog injured his leg b/c of the weight gain, so it was pretty important for him to lose weight fast. I just wish is wasn't so dang expensive and why need an Rx? It's dog food!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not ecstatic The weight loss instructions table only goes to 100 lbs. leaving it a guessing game for larger dogs. I chatted online with the company and they didn't have answers either. Bowel movements are VERY dry, verging on constipation. My dog is fed 2xs day. Used to pass BM 2xs am and pm, now is not going usually until the pm. Seems distraught and uncomfortable. My dog seems to think the flavor is OK. Added some water to the food to add moisture, has helped a little. Adding the wet food made it all worse. Undetermined if this is worth the angst.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be workin- Tried giving Barley, my overweight lab, the Metabolic & Mobility diet formula to help him lose some weight and assist in his elderly joint issues. It made him sick (I think it was the glucosamine element) so switched to just the metabolic formula. Took him awhile to get used to it but now he seems to like it. He has lost about 2-3 pounds so far without seeming to experience any hunger, which is lovely. Wish someone could do this for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product so far is everything it says it is. We have two yellow Labs. They love to eat and overweight dogs can be a problem. We have had Labs on diets before with minimal success. This product took off Five pounds each on both our dogs in a month of use. We are now weaning them back on to their regular food. This product has been great. The dogs did not appear to be hungary like they did on other diet foods. I would highly recommend this food. I would also highly recommend Chewy.com. We saved money ordering through Chewy rather than getting it from the Vet. We also got free shipping! That is a huge savings on almost sixty pounds of food delivered to my door!
