Rated 5 out of 5 by Bulldog Love 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 September 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT WEIGHT LOSS DOG FOOD My vet put Sammy on Metabolic weight loss kibble by Hills. He has done very well on it. I was very pleased with every aspect of my interaction with Chewy.com including the ordering, the discount, the delivery speed, and customer service. I will definitely use Chewy.com for my pet supplies in the future. September 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dog food purchase 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. September 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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!! August 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super easy, fast and hassle free! My pug loves this weight management food, and hes lost 2 out of 4 pounds he needs to loose! Super easy, fast and hassle free for my first time ordering. The price is fair. September 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Your products are nice and fresh Thank you for all your help with first time customers. Judy September 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good food My dog has lost 20 lbs on this. Recommended by vet and worked August 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gabby likes it My vet put Gabby on this for weight control. She had never liked dry dog food but likes this and it seems to be working for her weight control. August 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I wanted 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. July 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product & Service 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! July 25, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! 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. July 21, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rx dog food I was out of my rx dog food. My Vet out of towns web site was ridiculously difficult. My hesitation in switching to an rx dog food. After several attempts I found Chewy. They worked with me sent me the address to send a photo of my dogs rx. I had his food in two days shipped free. Just in time as he was out the day it arrived. Thank you Chewy! June 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Metabolic Diet 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. April 30, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Loosing Weight 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 February 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 April 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great products! Phenomenal customer service! Omg, where do I start? Ok, on a scale of 1through 10 you are a 30! Riley our 13 years old dachshund is diabetic and loves the hills w/d kibble and chicken stew wet. Our lab, baroness is on hills metabolic kibble. I can't say enough great things a boy chewy,hills and our fantastic vet, Dr. Laurel Logas. You guys rock!!! Thank You!'thank you!'thank you! :-) :-) :-) June 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hill's Prescription Diet This seems to be working. She's been on it for a month and already doesn't seem as barrel chested. Hopefully this will work! June 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent This product has already shown results and our dog has only been on it for about a month! June 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by My dog Liked it too but.... My 13 year old minuture poodle is very picky about food (yes, still..lol), and he was eating Science Diet light SMALL BITES. He was neuter a few months ago and started gaining weight so the Doctor change him to the Metabolic. He did liked the food right from the first time he tried it. However, 2 weeks after he started I notice he wasn't eating until the end of the day. I would like to suggest the manufacture to do the same food in SMALL BITES as well. For senior dogs, small bites is better due to the fact that as they grow old they tend to loss teeths and small bites would be a great idea. In the meantime I'm adding a little water or homemade vegetable broth and let it sit with the food until it get soft. Only then he will eat it. August 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. May 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product This product is very effective and I am noticing a major and significant different in my dog's weight and mobility. June 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Value 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. May 31, 2016
