    I was skeptical, but tried this after attempting to get doggie (lab/retriever mix) to eat Metabolic Weight Management (without the "natural" in its name). He looked at that, looked at me and walked away never to return to the bowl. However, the metabolic "natural" is a smaller kibble, which doggie seems to prefer. HE GULPED DOWN THE ENTIRE BOWL. And, we no longer need to entice him with chicken or green beans to get him to eat. He's happy, not begging for food between meals, and losing weight.

    I was so pleased to see I could get Metabolic in small kibble form as my small dog cannot digest the larger kibble. I use to get the small kibble at a named pet store but they don't carry it anymore so Chewy was perfect. Thanks so much.

    My recently diagnosed Corgi mix is not crazy about this food, but he likes it just fine when I add a little chicken broth (okayed by my vet) - and he has lost weight in the month he's been on it. Love Chey.com!

    My dog doesn't care for this formula. My fault for ordering the wrong one. I will order the correct one when it's time. Love the delivery timeline.

    My Cairn Terrier was about three pounds over her desired weight. She has been on this kibble for a month now and her treats cut by 50%. I can see and feel the weight loss. I'm looking forward to a visit to the vet's office for a weigh-in.
