Rated 4 out of 5 by JuneBug44 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 5 out of 5 by ajcameron11 definitely worth the money!
our pup, well dog i should say because he's seven years old, has always been overweight and like most owners we never thought much about it. however, in april of this year he tore his acl and was in need of surgery to repair it. we decided that it was finally time to get the excess weight off of him to avoid the same injury to the other back leg. we started him on the metabolic food the same week we found out he needed the surgery. four months later i am proud to say not only has he fully recovered from the surgery, which took 12 weeks of limiting his activity to strictly allowing him out to the restroom and back inside to sit, but he's lost 22 pounds since starting the metabolic food. thank you hill's prescription diet employees for coming up with this food. you've truly helped us give snickers a healthier and better quality of life by getting this excess weight off. only 8 more pounds and he'll be down to the ideal weight the vet wants. this food is definitely worth the money!

My Cocker Spaniel Ebony was diagnosed with an auto immune disorder when she was 6 years old. Therefore she took steroids for at least 6 months straight. I am extremely thankful she pulled through however she packed on the pounds. All she wanted to do was eat and sleep. She didn't want to play with our other 3 dogs just do her business and lay on the patio or come inside. I am was extremely concerned so I took her to the vet (they all know us very well) she told me about metabolic diet. I was very skeptical but she is my like my child so I thought ok lets give it a try. They measured her weighed her and gave me a detailed diet of how much to feed and how long it would take for her to lose the weight...we went for monthly weigh ins and to my surprise in 6 months she went from 44 lbs to 34 lbs!! Ebony will be 9 this year and I haven't seen her this happy in years, playing and running around just like her brothers and sister!!! I would definitely recommend this diet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katie5 i love this product
My 8 yr. old beagle female, Katie, went on a diet with this food as prescribed by her vet. She loved the taste of it and it filled her up. She was also able to have a treat worked into her diet so she could enjoy that with her other fur-siblings. She actually got 2 pounds under her goal weight! We had her on another diet with another brand of food and she was always hungry and it took a lot longer to lose weight. With the Hills food she easily lost the weight she needed to. S
he is a different dog now. She plays with her friends Elliot (beagle) and Gus (boston terrier) Gus is my sons dog and Katie hated it when he was here. Now she runs and plays with him instead of staying on the couch being mad. I have no doubt that this food will lengthen her life and make her healthier. It is a bit pricey but how can you put a price on a beautiful,healthy,happy beagle princess! I highly recommend this food if you dog needs to trim down. You will not be disappointed.

Just started this product. I have a 10 year old golden with a weight problem. Been on it three weeks and I think I already see results. Can't wait for a weigh in at the vets at 60 days. We are in a contest.
Quick shipping after they got the script from my vet.

This product has really helped my dogs lose and maintain their weights. Pricey, but worth it. Chewy.com made the whole process very easy. No more lugging heavy bags in and out of a cart or dragging it into my house from the car!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuvMy2Dogs Helped Both of My Dogs
We have a 4 year old Golden and 8 year old Pointer/Border Collie Mix. Both of them should be 70 lbs per the vet. They transitioned to this food easily and it's been effective for both of them. 8 yo is now at her ideal weight and on maintenance, while the Golden still has about 7 lbs to go.
Our vet commended us on following the feeding guidelines and making the accomplishments we did - Said we should be poster candidates as they have a lot of people who buy the food, but don't follow directions and their pets don't lose weight. Instead of dog treats, we give them frozen green beans, chunks of raw carrot and apple etc. per vets suggestion. Too many goodies and/or table scraps can put the weight on. We all become a bit more sedentary in the winter, but with this food it's easy to control weight.
The cost can be prohibitive to some, but it really works. I wish the company would reduce the cost some to make it more affordable for everyone. Our vet is great about providing coupons and a buy 10 get 1 free program. It truly works!

Our beagle was about 6-7 pounds overweight when we first tried the Metabolic Diet, and he is now at a perfect weight! He loves the food and it keeps him at the weight he should be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rylee It really works
I own 3 Chihuahuas and they were all over weight. I tried cutting their regular food back to a smaller portion and only fed them twice a day. I also increased their exercise routine and cut out all treats. Nothing happened. They could not lose weight. My veterinarian recommended the Metabolic diet and I decided to give it a try. I bought a 27.5 pound bag to split between the three dogs and bag of treats. My veterinarian gave me a feeding plan and we started it immediately. In two weeks we went back to the vet for a weigh-in and they all had lost weight. After only 4 months on Metabolic they had all reached their ideal weight. They all had more energy and looked great. We continued on Metabolic and they have maintained a healthy weight for almost a year now. We added in can food as well. I would recommend this product highly to anyone struggling with an overweight pet. It is easy to follow the feeding plan. They still can have treats and canned food. The best part is that it is and easy way to get to a healthy weight. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by Annec1 Update in my review
This is my second review for this product. My first review stated that the taste of the food was good but it did not keep my Yorkie full from meal to meal. After several conversations with the lovely and informed customer service personnel at Hills, I learned that my dog should have been measured at my vet and the statistics entered in a Hill's computer program to determine the correct feeding amount. This was not done to begin with. It was finally done about 6 weeks after my Yorkie began the food. During those 6 weeks my Yorkie went from 8.4 pounds to 6.0 pounds. I must say the diet works but I was Obviously told, by my vet the incorrect amount to feed my dog. We have increased his food amount and will check his weight in a month. I do hate that he lost 1/4 of his body weight in 6 weeks. That is excessive and really mean. I feel terrible about it, but it was not Hill's fault, but was the fault of my vet for not measuring my dog at the beginning. Do Not make that mistake. Your dog cannot tell you how hungry he/she is!

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 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 BethieD This food is a godsend.
I truly don't know what I would do without Hill's Metabolic. I have tried numerous different weight control foods for my Chihuahua, who we can say was extremely "fluffy", and I'm not talking fur. The Vet had us cutting portions down to next to nothing, but nothing seemed to work. Then we found Hill's and the miracle happened. I thoroughly researched the product and everywhere I looked gave it rave reviews. The best review came from my dog, who loves it. Even better, she gets normal portion sizes and the weight fell off her. She has tons of energy, her coat looks healthier and overall she seems much happier. When it comes to weight management food for dogs, Hill's Metabolic can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Liz2 Wow I can't believe the fast results
My very overweight cocker spaniel has seen unbelievable results in just 1 month ! We had tried everything to get the weight off and nothing seemed to work. We always gave into the big brown eyes. Well Rusty had some medical conditions and we said now is the time to get serious about the weight. We asked for the metabolic diet at the last vet appointment ready to give it a try. We started with both the wet and dry carefully measuring both. Rusty loves it. I have never seen him eat dog food so quickly. He also gets 1 metabolic treat a day, plenty of love along with some carrots, cucumbers and an occasional kale stick. We just got back from the vet and he has lost an impressive 4lbs! The tech measured him twice on the scale just to be sure. I was jumping up and down. So happy with this food. Convinced Rusty would not have lost the weight without Metabolic. So much easier to stay committed to the diet with the fast results, for we still get the big brown eyes pleading for a human treat. Thanks Hills from the bottom of both of our hearts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andahawk This food works!
My dog ended up gaining weight after she hurt her back and ended up not being able to be as active as before she got hurt. My wife and I tried many things to try and get her to lose the weight-like increasing her level of activity and having her on Hill's w/d Prescription Diet. This didn't seem to work for her as her weight stayed pretty much the same. However, once we talked to our vet about the new Metabolic food and our vet did the measurements required by Hill's, we were told what amount of food to feed her and here we are about 8 months later and she is almost down to her target weight! I have also noticed increased muscle strength and she just seems lighter on her feet. It is also worth mentioning that our dog absolutely LOVES the taste of this food--more so than any other we have previously tried.
Both my wife and I are very happy with the results of this food and the value of it and we would both recommend it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by DeeforDiane Worked where other products failed.
Our German Shepherd was drastically overweight. She couldn't run and definitely couldn't jump. Walking up the steps was even hard for her. We tried many products recommended by pet stores and nutritionists. Finally, our doctor recommended Hill's Metabolic. She has been using the product for about 5 months now and has lost over 20 pounds. We go for three mile walks together. She has no trouble jumping up onto things (when allowed) and has recovered a lot of her youthful energy she used to have, even though she is nine years old. The product really works. At first I thought she would be hungry since we also cut down the amount of food we were feeding her, but the product is developed to fulfill her hunger on less food. She often left some of the food and went back later to eat it. As soon as she gets to her goal weight we will switch to the Hills Maintenance program, but we are not going back to our past brand of food.

by BuffySuzette This product is working for my dog
My vet recommended this product because my dog is overweight and cannot seem to lose weight. I was a little dismayed at the cost, but my vet said it would work. After two weeks, I brought her in for her nails to be trimmed, and asked the vet's assistant to weigh her. She has lost 3 pounds! What is amazing is that my dog is normally finicky about food, and she loves the Metabolic food.
