  • Weight loss plan for my large kitty

    By on

    I adopted my cat in June 2014 and over the next several years it was a constant struggle to battle his gluttonous ways. He either didn't feel satisfied or the food had too many calories. In April 2017 my vet prescribed him this cat food. I transitioned him to it slowly and he gobbled it all up. His latest weigh in a few days ago showed he has lost about 2-2.5 pounds (you don't want weight loss to be too quick). He still seems satisfied between meals and eats every last kibble (I spread 5 small meals throughout the day using an auto feeder). I also like how the kibbles are slightly bigger and more of a pyramid shape, rather than a small circle shape - definitely not too large, though.

  • INSTANT GRAelightful to have food delivered directly to doorTIFICATION

    By on

    Delightful to have food delivered directly to door. I always get exactly the special diet prescribed by veterinarian. Does away with the hassle of trying to find food in pet store, lifting, carrying and transport of heavy bag. I would definitely recommend this as the ideal way to get pet food, especially if it is for a prescribed special diet.

  • My cat lost 3 pounds in a year

    By on

    My vet recommended this for my obese 14-year old female cat. She lost around 3 pounds in a year on this food, down to 15 lbs from 18. She seems to like it. She does go through occasional bouts of vomiting, but...she's a cat. No more or less than with other food. As some people pointed out, the kibbles are a little bigger. But for my cat, that's good; with other food, when they're smaller she used to eat some of the kibbles whole when eating a few at a time. Now she eats one at a time and crunches them up even though she's missing a couple of teeth. Overall it seems like it does what it says without making the cat feel deprived.

  • 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.

  • Kitty loves it!

    By on

    I switched my cat to this food two weeks ago and he absolutely loves it! On his old food, he had stomach troubles as well as being overweight. He stopped going to the bathroom so much and seems much happier already. I think it's too soon to tell how it's affected his weight, but I am very optimistic!

  • Yummy diet food!!

    By on

    My cats really like this low-calorie food. I have to measure carefully so they don't eat too much. It's a happy favorite. Now we'll see if it helps to one cat to lose a bit of weight and the other to maintain her current healthy weight.

  • Hill's Prescription Diet dry food

    By on

    Everyone told us our cat would not like nor eat weight control food. Well, Hill's proved them wrong. Our cat, who is overweight, eats her food with absolutely no problem. She's completely satisfied with the recommended portion and seems more peppy.
