  • Minor disappointment in packaging, but good

    By on

    On a plus, my cat likes this food which is highly beneficial to her getting her weight under control. It was a bit complicated to get the prescription, but Chewy did a great job working with me and the vet to get everything cleared. My disappointment was ordering the 15.5 lb bag and when I opened it the velcro closure ripped off the bag, so I can't seal it to keep the cat out of it.

  • I was truly skeptical

    By on

    My vet suggested (strongly) that both of my furbabies be transitioned off commercial food and go exclusively on this Hill's Science Diet METABOLIC formula. One of my kitties is 19.2 lbs the other 17.5. I was amazed at how quickly they took to this new food. I started out giving it to them as I would their treats but eliminated their wet food and commercial treats. They gobbled the Metabolic up! Within a week they were transitioned entirely to the Science Diet and are now commercial food free. My heaviest cat had a serious issue of vomiting every time he ate. I am happy to say he hasn't vomited in a week. Thank you to my vet and Science Diet for such a great product.

  • They took to the new metabolic food like fish take to water.

    By on

    I was doing a partial mix to introduce the new food and they would eat the new food (Metabolic) and leave the old food in their bowls. They love it.

  • Too Early To Tell

    By on

    My cat has only been on this 2 weeks now - one of which consisted of several days of switching over from what she was eating. So it's really too early to tell if this works or not. I HOPE it does!

  • Expensive But Works

    By on

    High cost, but it does the job. My cats like it. I use these with the feeder balls (Slim Cat) and it's a great double pronged approach to controlling my cats' masive weight. My grey beast starting at 22 pounds.

  • Great food for weight loss

    By on

    Our vet prescribed this as a last-ditch effort to get our kitty to lose some weight. We've always fed our cats a high-protein diet with quality food, but even with reducing amounts, he wasn't losing any weigh. Finally, our vet suggested this food and we noticed an immediate difference. Even better, our fur-baby isn't hungry all the time. He's still getting enough food to keep him full and satisfied! :-) Also - Chewy is just amazing! I'd highly recommend becoming a member to anyone that's considering it! Great prices and amazing customer service!
