A gradual transition to a new pet food is important to avoid digestive upset. To transition, mix your pet’s current food with the new food. Over 7 days, gradually decrease the amount of the current pet food while increasing the amount of new pet food. In some cases, your veterinarian may recommend no transition or a shorter transition time.

    Metabolic Weight Management Dog Food

    Our dog suffers from UTIs and she is overweight. She likes the food. So far she has not had another UTI episode but she has only been on the food for a little over a month. She hasn't lost any weight yet but we are reducing her intake slowly so hopefully this will change.

    Disappointed, as at least 1/3 of the cans were dented. At the vets I would not have chosen them. Gerry

    My dog, Sheriff loves Hills canned weight management metabolic dog food. He has had both the beef and chicken flavored stews. I would recommend the service that Chewy.com provides. They are prompt and efficient with my orders, and I have always gotten them correctly. Thanks Chewy!

    Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Weight Management

    By on

    Because Noah is overweight, he was put on Hill's Metabolic. I bought the dry version and realized he'd lose weight because he refused to eat it. He got hungry, went to his bowl, smelled it and walked away. I changed to the canned version and he loves it! The only problem is the cost. It is very expensive-even using Chewy.
