    Welsh Corgi Discovers Great Food/ No weight gain

    By on

    The Corgi loves the food, which is not always the case. He is very particular, but he's enjoyed the Hill's Rx Diet from the first taste. He looks forward to mealtime and will remind me if I'm not punctual.

    My dog is enjoying eating again!

    By on

    My doggie has always eagerly anticipated mealtime, until a few weeks ago. He began taking all morning, sometimes even into the afternoon, to eat his breakfast. Now he’s eagerly awaiting mealtime again.

    I am so happy with this product. My pugs are finicky eaters and I was worried they wouldn't eat it. Being put on a diet and changing food I was very worried. My girls love this food. They even eat the veggies in it. They love the chunks of meat.

    Major Change in Quality

    By on

    Our dog originally loved the Metabolic Beef and Vegetable Stew, however the last few cases we ordered are severely lacking in quality and don't even appear to be the same food. The original was hearty and fibrous and the last two cases are very soupy and lower volume of beef/vegetables and our dog doesn't care for the "new version". We were hoping these are just two bad cases however the next two have arrived and are not as soupy but quality still changed as smaller pieces and not as bulky. We will need to stop using as it's a waste of money as our dog won't eat all of her food.
