I have one extremely obese dog due to years of excess treats and foods that he loved but didn't need. He is elderly (11) and I decided that he really needed a strict diet. My Vet recommended the Hill's Metabolic Diet. I purchased a small bag to wean him onto this diet, and when I gave him the food he was really very enthusiastic about it, and had no problem with him being fussy about eating it. I add a tablespoon of the canned metabolic pate to his food also. I am extremely pleased with the results. I would recommend this to anyone who has an obese dog.

Reasonable price, promptly delivered. Hard to find prescription dog food; so pleased Chewy carries it. Expensive item so Chewy's favorable price is certainly appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rocky It Works!
My dog has struggled with his weight always, and even being on thyroid medication has not helped with his weight issue. I'd tried other diet dog foods and he always seemed ravenous, which caused additional worries about what he would find to eat since he thought he was 'starving'! He is finishing his first bag of Hills Prescription Metabolic and it's working! He has lost weight, has more energy, and has never acted like he is 'starving' between meals. This product so far seems like a miracle cure. He likes the flavor, too, and for the first time in his life, acts 'full' after eating! One caveat: the dog has to remain on this food, and the volume you feed will go UP once the ideal weight has been achieved. So, it's not an inexpensive solution, but for the dog that has serious weight issues and always seems "hungry", I highly recommend this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peachy For losing weight it is great!
My terrier, Penne, has become slightly larger in a year by a whole 9 lbs! I was going crazy with what to do as she loves to EAT! My vet, suggested to try Metabolic, as it could possibly work. l did, and in 5 weeks she has lost 1.25 lbs! I am hoping for the next month to be higher, but I will take what she does. She still is always hungry, so I bought the biscuits too. She gets one a day at night. It is still difficult, but she is losing. I have to say I have 3 other dogs that are not overweight that doesn't help. She wants their food too! She is 29.5 now and should be about 20! Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by Char63 Balanced weight loss food.
My dogs don't realize they're on a diet. They loved this food immediately at one-quarter less the amount of their previous food, feeding twice a day. I add hot water and let it sit for a few minutes and they love the gravy it produces. They are full, content and their poop is firmer. In two weeks they've lost one pound, which I've heard is equivalent to 10 lbs. human weight lost. Our goal is two months on this food, per our veterinarian's instructions, and then will reassess their diet. They look healthier, act younger, and have more energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GChad1 Wow! It really works.
Our 7 yr old dachshund came out of surgery for a ruptured disc and one of the first things ordered was for him to lose weight. Starting at 22 lbs., after just two weeks on this dog food and following the guidelines, our pup has lost 3 pounds! And, he is no longer always hungry and he loves this dog food. And, we don't mind the smell of it either, unlike some other foul smelling dog foods. His target weight is 15 to 17 lbs., and we're confident he'll get there easily.
As for pricing, we were concerned that any dog food that requires a prescription and available only from our vet was going to be expensive. Not the case with this here. The Metabolic actually costs less than many of the "boutique" dog foods we've bought in the past, and our dog really likes this one, too.
We have only high praise for this dog food and the results we are seeing it have on our 7 yr old dachshund. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Looking forward to seeing some weight loss on my Coonhound. Only about a month in and so far he loves the food.

My "Rottie " was very overweight and he's a very picky eater and with this food he took to it right away..No added stuff to make / coax him into eating his food. We even give him individual kibble as a treat and reward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shibamom A miracle for my dog
Like many of you my dog was overweight by 10 pounds. After I put my 16 year old Shiba Inu down my younger Shiba went into grieving and was very depressed. He didn't even want to go for a walk and when I would hook the leash to him and pull on him he wouldn't budge. And he always loved his walks. After about a year of this behavior he had gained a lot of weight. I cut back on his food to the point that I thought it was almost cruel. But he still didn't lose weight and in fact continued to gain. My vet suggested Hills Metabolic diet and I started him on it 8 weeks ago. He prefers the canned but I give him the dry as treats. He eats less than is recommended and never seems hungry and he loves it. He is following the chart exactly as was printed out by my vet. He has lost 5 pounds in 8 weeks so he is halfway to his goal loss of 10 pounds. I also got a shiba inu puppy for him (and me) and he is now able to really play and run with her without tiring or grunting. I am so impressed with this food. Even when he reaches his goal weight I will continue him on this as I don't want the weight to come back. Great product with great results.

My dog has such a cute face that it's hard to say no when you're eating to give him table scrapes. But over time, we started to notice his enormous stomach. Took him to the vet to find out if he had a thyroid problem or if something else was wrong. After blood work and thyroid test we realized we were over feeding him. He was 124 lbs which is way to large for a collie/chow mix dog. Our vet recommended a Metodolic dog food that you can only get by perscrption. We can see in less than two weeks of him eating this dog food he has more engergy and is starting to lose weight. He still has a long way to go but we know we are on the right track to get him down to 80 lbs

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dolphin Absolutely amazing results!!!
My pet Sam is my best friend. A loyal,affectionate, smart amazing pet. Boarder collie/ lab mix. He is now 7 and we have had him since he was a pup. As he got older he started to put on weight. Before we knew it he was up to 105 lbs!! He has never eaten people food and always had plenty of excercise. After taking him to the vet he was put on thyroid medication and started on Hills Prescription Diet Metabolic in February of this year. Now into September his weight is down to 82.5lbs!!!!!!! I am truely amazed. His life has changed. The food is amazing. The results are amazing! The weight loss is a direct result of Hills Prescription Diet. I tried other diet foods prior to this with no results. I am truely thankful to Hills for the quality and nutrition in their pet foods. Without that who knows what may have happened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Birddog Has solved several health problems for my dog
My spayed now 10 year old english setter was overweight, had
a severe right rear hip displasia, and worse, suffered from
constant diarrhea despite constant dietary efforts by us.
Our vet suggested Hills Metabolic dry food to primarily help her
lose weight and to help her hip through weight reduction. Maggie has lost 12 lbs, from 84 to 72 lbs and her hip is now
significantly better, obviously due to the weight loss taking some strain off her hips.
An unexpected and wonderful ancillary benefit has been the
complete and total cessation of the diarrhea that had plagued her (and us) for almost her whole life. The gland issues
she was experiencing from not passing a normal stool and
cleaning out the glands as nature intended has also completely
This has been a win, win, win, win for maggie and us.
It is expensive, but worth it to us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogMama Amazing Results
For years, we joked about our Golden/Lab Retriever being a "plus-sized model." She is the prettiest, sweetest dog ever - but she was always a bit chunky no matter what we tried. She would refuse to eat diet dog food, and despite 5 miles of walking every day she couldn't shed those extra pounds. Now that she is older and dealing with elbow arthritis, long walks are difficult for her. My vet suggested HS Diet Metabolic to try and take off the extra weight. I was hesitant because of the high cost, but when they assured me I could return the food if she wouldn't eat the diet dog food I bought a bag. The results have been amazing!!! In 6 months she has gone from 106 to 92 lbs - and is now at her ideal weight. I know the food has to be tasty - it smells like roasted chicken. I wish I could find the same solution for me to help lose belly fat LOL

I have a coming 10 y.o. lab/heeler who in the past 9 months has been on this diet in efforts of losing weight. I can tell you that this product has worked wonders in his weight loss success. At a current 83 lbs., I cannot imagine what we would be dealing with had he not dropped this weight. He was upwards of 110 lbs., and his age and frame were no match for that much weight. He is as happy eating this diet as he is eating anything else, ever! He has never been a picky eater, and so that may also be a blessing. With strict compliance, he has been successful in dropping what could have shortened his life span greatly. None of us are getting any younger......if only he could plan my meals daily. haha. I am so thankful my veterinarian suggested this program. We have had complete success, and are gratefully thankful, and healthier because of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CinnamonsMom It really works!!!
Our 3 legged Sheltie was very over weight and our Vet said we have to get the weight off to prevent serious health issues. Cinnamon was 33lbs when we started her on the diet. She had difficulty moving around and had long given up on playing or taking walks since it was hard for her to move with only 1 front leg and 2 back. (She was born this way and was a rescue dog.) She became short of breath just walking around in the house. Our Vet gave us a stern talking to about feeding her from the table which we will never do again. She made it perfectly clear it was going to kill her. We immediately stopped any food other than the Metabolic. We were very diligent in following the feeding guidelines. Initially, we only gave her the food and did not use the special snacks. It seemed to take awhile, but then suddenly we noticed she was beginning to loose weight. At her last visit she was down to 27.7lbs. She loves going for walks and playing fetch with her ball. She is like a puppy again. She enjoys feeding time and also loves a Metabolic snack treat a few times a week. THANK YOU HILL's for creating this product. It really works and will be Cinnamon's food for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wendy57 Reommend this to anyone with over weight dogs
My vet (VCA) recommended this dog food for my over weight Chihuahua (26 lbs) should be 12. She gave me the amounts to feed her- I mix canned with the dry. And in the past year she has lost a total of 7 lbs, yep she is down to 19 lbs using metabolic dog food. She gets around a lot better and my other Chihuahuas love it too... Yes the chunks are alittle big but it doesn't seem to bother any of them because the food isn't as solid as the other brands...light and airy. Best thing I could have done for my dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnimalLuvah This product really does work for weight loss!
I work at one of the top selling veterinary clinics in the Baton Rouge area and I have only heard success stories from numerous clients! The #1 issue that owners have with obese pets is over feeding. When the owners switch to metabolic, they not only feel that the appropriate amount of food they are feeding their pet is sufficient for their appetite, but they also do see results of weight loss without having to increase their pets exercise. It may take a couple of months to notice tangible results, but so many owners swear by it! If only there was an equivalent for humans! My largest complaint is that it is quite pricey (pricier than other prescription diets), which can make it difficult to urge the owners to purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RDA631 Overweight Cocker Spaniel
I have two cocker spaniels; one seriously overweight. We tried everything to slow down his constant weight gain. My vet finally put him on Metabolic and not only did the weight gain slow, but actually reversed! He seems to like the food as well or better that another leading brand name weight control product and has lost 4% of his body mass in about 4 weeks. Again this is amazing as he has slowly gained weight even on a "diet" dog food. My other cocker does not have a weight problem, but she likes the food as well, but eats more and is just maintaining her weight. Keeping our fingers crossed for another good check up and weight loss for the heavier of the two. Only downside is the product is significantly more expensive than the "diet" formula I was using from another company, but the dog was not losing weight until now.

I have a 6 yr old Bichon Frise and he was overweight weighing in at 29.1 - my vet started Bogie on it in 4/2015 and by July he has went to 24.2 - I was so excited! So I thought I could change him back to natural balance for fat dogs, he threw it up it didn't even dissolve. Everytime I try to go back to original food he gains weight, so from now on he's staying on this.
