Description

Almost 50% of the pet population is overweight. Even a little extra weight can lead to serious health problems. Extra weight reduces play time, impacts mobility and affects the general health of your cat. Factors contributing to weight gain include age, lack of exercise and overfeeding. Many commercial pet foods are loaded with salt and fat, which improve the taste but also have dramatic effects on your cat's weight and overall health. Along with frequent physical exercise, choosing the right food plays a very important role in helping cats reach their proper weight. At Hill's, nutritionists and veterinarians have developed clinical nutrition especially formulated to help cats effectively lose weight and maintain appropriate glucose levels.

  • Good kibble!

    Mabel, one of our 7 cats, gets to have the m/d prescription diet. It's not because she's diabetic or overweight, it's because she apparently doesn't process and absorb the protein in the regular food that I feed. My vet conferred with the Science Diet nutritionists to come up with this diet for her. She loves it! So do all the others, so she has to be guarded when eating! She feels like she has gained a bit of weight and is considerably more energetic. I'm optimistic that her next blood work will show an increase in her protein level.

  • Soooo convenient.

    I love this service. We have one cat that is diabetic, so all five of our cats have to eat diabetic food. Can't buy her food in any store. Only available at the Vet's office. We get enough food for a month once a month.

    The Hills Prescription Diet m/d is a great cat food. I would have given a 5 Star rating if I could get it in a larger bag. It costs about the same through Chewy as through my vet. I will order from Chewy because of the convenience. Customer service would get a 5 plus from me!

    I love Chewy.com for the great delivery response time! I wish this catfood came in different flavors for my finicky senior kitty but we do what we need to do to take care of our furry children.

    Between insulin shots my cat Lucy enjoys her glucose management food! I'm so glad I found out that Chewy.com has prescription food! So convenient to just order it with the dog food!

    My cats like it. Will continue to buy it, wish it came in different flavors. I am not sure how it impacts the blood sugar, but my vet recommended it.

  • Best food ever

    By on

    My cat was diagnosed as diabetic. We monitored his eating and switched to this food. We were luck enough to only do insulin. For 6 month and stay in this food.
