My dog Rusty a Dachshund/terrier mix suffered with back problems and was extremely over weight. We didn't feed him table food but the food we were feeding him wasn't the best. My vet ( Dr Neal) highly recommended Metabolic, I followed Dr Neals instructions and only fed Metabolic along with Metabolic treats. My precious Rusty has lost almost half his body weight in less than 2 years. We haven't had any back problems, he has so much energy. .Thanks Hills Prescription.

Im almost done with the first 6 pound bag. I slowly introduced this into his r/d diet. So only 2 weeks on 100% metabolic food. My guy is 3 years old and has had a weight problem since being a pup. He has been on many, many diet foods, nothing ever worked. So far I do see he is loosing very little hair now. I have not weighed him yet. Im hoping it will work. He has had all kinds of lab work done on him, and nothing comes up. Im at my end of what more to do. I suggested the Metabolic food to my Vet. I will keep this updated with any changes that come up. Hoping next update will be that he has lost weight.

She's mistaken for a puppy!!

By Bev92688

from RSM CA

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet Canine Metabolic Weight Management Dry Food:

My Corgi Tali weighed in at a whopping 41 pounds. Our vet told me she needed to lose weight. I tried a national brand from the grocery store and after a full bag she showed not an ounce difference in her weight. At our next visit, our vet said Tali's weight was going to shorten her lifespan and prescribed the Metabolic weight formula. She is now 34 pounds and people now either ask if she's small for a Corgi or if she's a puppy (she'll be six in May)!!! If your dog has a weight problem, I highly recommend Hill's Science Diet.

Great results, but...

By MommyD

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet Canine Metabolic Weight Management Dry Food:

Our vet prescribed this food for our dog because he was overweight following a surgery that kept him from being active for some time. We had been happy with our dog's other food, and were proud of how we had done our research to find him just the right food. The vet told us that we could go back to our old food once our dog had achieved his target weight. The results were amazing, and our dog did lose the weight. We got caught up in its success and never switched him back to his old food. I wish we had. Without going into details, let's just say that we have been put in a position of needing to examine all aspects of our dog's health, including diet and nutrition. After much research, we have come to the conclusion that there is a need to switch our dog to a food tailored to what dogs actuallly should be eating, as opposed to eating what should create results, such as weight loss. I would encourage all pet owners to learn as much as they can about what their dogs should be eating, what is healthy, and what the actual ingredients in the food are, and their impact on a dog's health. This is not an editorial review of this company's food and its effectiveness, but it is eye opening when you begin to learn what it is dog food companies are able to use as dog food.Read it! Would you eat it?

Weight loss

By Danagirl

from Mahopac, NY

Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet Canine Metabolic Weight Management Dry Food:

My German Shepherd mix Dana was quite overweight. My vet recommended that we feed her Hills Metabolic. I'm very glad we did because Dana got back to her ideal weight after a few months. She has more energy and a trim silhouette.
