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.

Key Benefits
  • Clinical nutrition especially formulated to help cats effectively lose weight and maintain appropriate glucose levels.
  • Formulated to reduce body fat, maintain lean muscle mass, and support a healthy immune system.
  • Therapeutic L-carnitine levels help maintain normal fat metabolism in the liver.
  • Formulated with S+OXSHIELD to meet specific nutrient standards, shown to promote a urinary environment that helps reduce the risk for struvite and calcium oxalate crystals.
  • Offers same great taste and benefits as they did prior to the introduction of the S+OXSHIELD seal.

  • An Adjustment but getting there

    By on

    My cat was recently diagnosed with diabetes. My vet recommended this food (and the wet food with the same prescription) to try and help bring his blood sugars down. It has been an adjustment for him, but he is eating it. Unfortunately, without the wet food (dry is more supplemental in his diet and he doesn't even eat 1/2 cup in 24 hours) it is not enough to help bring his blood sugars down to a manageable level (Please see my review of the wet food as to why that isn't working).

    Lucky is liking it and eating it with no problems. His seems to poop less and the smell is more bearable. Hoping the new diet and Insulin will bring him back out of the Diabetes.

  • Quality food at a Great Price

    By on

    Our cat loves Hill's Prescription Diet! The vet gave her a bag and she dove into it from the first bowl. She prefers it over the expensive treats and has stopped begging for table food. Taffy is a big gal so the goal is to take a few pounds off. We think she is on the way. Chewy delivered the order within 24 to 48 hours. (I think it was actually 24.) It couldn't be any easier than ordering from Chewy. The price is the best we've found anywhere, too. Customer and kitty approved!

  • Great product

    By on

    Our cat was diagnosed with diabetes a year ago and required 3units of insulin 2x day along with being prescribed Hill’s m/d wet & or dry food. He prefers the dry over wet (maybe it’s the pork flavor of the wet?). Over the course of the year his insulin needs began to drop until he was on 1 unit 1x day. Currently he is off the insulin altogether (with regular glucose checks). Woo hoo!! Thank you Hill’s!

    I have two cats and one has diabetes. This is more expensive than the Purina, but the cat that doesn't have diabetes tolerates it far better.
