Rated 2 out of 5 by RottieMom 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 Mymia5 I saved a lot of money
The vet recommended the Metabolic food for my dog and she loves it. She's been eating it for two years and I'm able to keep her weight down. I also save money by ordering it from Chewy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lovedogs Great Results!
My dog has had an obesity problem for years. She was a stray until I adopted her. The necessity of foraging in her early years never left her. She would eat constantly if allowed. This food appears to give her the best satiation & the pounds have came off. Even when she lost her weight & I put her back on "regular" dog food her weight returned. She feels great & looks good.

Vet rec'd product to help my 7yo Yellow Lab lose a few pounds--other attempts had ended with her eating cardboad and other (usually nasty) random items and no weight loss. So far: feeding, for my own conveniece, to both my dogs and both LOVE to eat it! Time will tell if the weight loss follows.

My dachshund has been on this dog food for two weeks and after she eats she wants out to poop. It seems to go through her very fast, in fact, she poops more than once at a time in different places each time she goes out.
As far as weight loss, I do not know that at this time.

This is the best food to maintain my Malipoo's weight. It was recommended by the Vet. She had been overweight, now she is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlie Samson is no longer fat!
We have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Within the first year, Samson was fat. We were very surprised. Our daughter in law who is a vet recommended this kibble after she finished lecturing us on over feeding:(.
Sam loves his kibble. He has lost weight. He is a happy boy!

I like the size of the kibble for my large lab. He seem to have more energy and his weight loss is being achieved.

I put both of my dogs on this food and they both lost weight fairly quickly. My only complaint is that the kibble is quite large for my miniature pinschers. I wish they would make this product in a smaller size.

My dog loves this food, 1 cup in the morning and 1 cup in evening. I give him 5 or 6 pieces 2 or 3 times during the day for a snack. I feel like he is losing weight after 2 weeks.

He needs to lose weight, so, hopefully, this will happen!

My Sheltie has been on the Metabolic Weight Management for several months. Won't touch it unless I add cut up chicken breast. Lately I notice his coat seems very dry and lifeless and seems to be falling out in clumps. Has anyone else had this issue

Our five little furry fat ones are loving this food and they don't seem to miss the larger portions that they are used to. The kids ages range from 14 to 2 and they all have a few pounds to shed. They have only been eating it for a week so I'm looking forward to seeing results in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Krista3 Proof enough for ME
I have struggled to keep one of my doxies from being overweight. I used to have them on Hill's RD which is a very restrictive dog food, but it makes your dog use the restroom excessively. It also made one of my girl doxie overly hungry where she was constantly begging for food. It was non-stop begging. After multiple testings with nothing wrong I decided to change the food.
I tried a natural and organic dog food, multiple brands such as Instinct and it caused my doxies both to gain a lot of weight. So now I'm using this dog food and both of them have lost weight. My girl is heavier and dropped two pounds. She was weighing nearly sixteen pounds and she is a mini dachshund. In a month's time, she dropped two pounds. I can see that she is slimming down and I'm so grateful for this dog food. It has also slimmed down my boy doxie but he was only slightly overweight and he reached his goal weight already. If you are a dachshund owner, you know how important it is for a dachshund NOT to be overweight because it can cause major back issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PFrat 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 MrsEarlPruittLeAnimal Worked Wonders on BOTH my furry-Four-legged Kids.!!.!.!!
Definitely would recommend. I'm the proud owner of both a 12 year old Brittany, Beau; and an 8 yr old Golden Retriever, Missy. Since being on a mixture of RD and Metabolic (wet & dry) both have lost weight and kept it off. Missy had the start of hip dysplasia, but the proper diet plan and exercise she's no longer forced to use a wheelchair. Yippy Skippy.!!.!.!!.
Anyone who has issues with this particular product should NOT ONLY watch what their "kids" get into, but severely LIMIT the kinds and amount of treats!
My late husband BLESS his soul was feeding the kids foods that aren't GOOD for canines. He was overweight and a little obese as well. Perhaps He should've HAD a human metabolic that he could help control his little problem; perhaps then he might've lived past 74.
Oh well, LIFE goes ON and he lived a Very rich & full life ONLY to go home when The Lord above had room for his soul/spirit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharon15 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.

Just started feeding this to my dog, so have not seen results yet. But my dog has a sensitive stomach and usually vomits for a few days when her food is switched, even though we gradually change it. She had absolutely no problems with her stomach with this food. Transition was easy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Char This product has great reviews.
Having just received this product, I really cannot tell yet if in fact it is working as promised. My Bichon is a bit overweight and is 9 years old, so we are very anxious to have a few pounds come off for her own health.
I have been very pleased with Chewy.com in the past and have recommended it to all of my friends.

We have two finicky Bulldogs when it comes to their dinner or breakfast. We had a sample of this and we gave it to our two Bulldogs Who gobbled it up in a matter of a minute. So we decided to order a large bag, or Bulldogs are still enjoying it and cleaning their bowls each time. Keep in mind that your veterinarian must approve it for your dogs or dog

I like that the food was less expensive. My one dog is over weight and needs this diet food but too expensive at the vets. With your company I was able to purchase 2 dog foods for the price of one.
