    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great solution for weight loss I was skeptical as I read about the new diet from Hill's. I had my very overweight cat on r/d and was frustrated as she had lost only 1 pound in 5 months. I wasn't optimistic that a new diet would lead to any better success. But I liked the possibility of a diet that worked with my pet's metabolism. Ellie has been on metabolic diet for just over 2 months and has lost nearly 2 pounds already! She loves the taste. Although the feeding portion looks small, she does not complain between feedings. She seems very satisfied. She also has more energy and is playing more. She now runs up and down the stairs playing with our other cat. I feel like she is so much happier! I know that I am happier! I can see the results, not only on the scale, but in her whole wellbeing. Thank you Hills!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purrfect food forchubby kitties I work at a veterinary hospital and have seen alot of overweight cats. I also have a couple of chubby cats. I have seen the Metabolic food work wonders at loosing and maintaining a healthy weight. My cats love this food. It also comes in treats with the same ingredients, so when we as owners think our cats are hungry, we can give them some treats. AWESOME PRODUCT

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure yet My two furry boys have been on this food for over a month now and have not lost weight. On a positive note, they have not gained more weight either. They like the taste and do not beg me for more once their daily portion has been consumed. They are 20 lbs. and 23.4 lbs. I have been feeding them the exact recommended amount daily, no cheating. The personalized weight loss charts I was given say weigh loss should occur within the first two weeks, which might be a little quick in reality. I was told by the receptionist at the vet to give this product two months to see some results as that is what she saw with her cat. Since it's still a little early, I am hopeful I will see results by this time next month! The food is quite expensive, but I am dedicated to keeping my boys on this diet as they are at least 50% overweight and their health is endangered right now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! My giant Maine Coon-mix needed to lose a few pounds after gaining said pounds over the years. Nothing seemed to work. The vet told me about this about-to-be-released Metabolic Diet from Prescription Diet that had had excellent results in trials, and contacted me as soon as it was available. In the first six months, he dropped almost 2 pounds (out of 24)! He has continued to lose; I will find out how much at his next vet visit in May.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great results This really works for weight loss, my cat was at his heaviest at 9.1kg last year, the science diet adult light took about 9 months for him to lose 1.5 lbs. He is a big & tall tabby, very lazy and hard to get him going to excercice. After he gained some weight back I decided to feed him this new stuff. His starting weight was 8.9kg only 9 weeks ago and he's down to 8.2kg! He really loves this food, and I like that the pieces are bigger so they have to be chewed and not swallowed whole.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Results! I have 2 cats on Metabolic diet. My big boy, Gus, weighed in at 25.8 lbs last year. One year later, he is down to 19.6 lbs, with all tests returning normal results. My other boy, Dewey, was 19 lbs last year, and is down to 17.6 lbs., all normal test results for him as well. These were shelter cats, and nothing at all worked for these guys to reduce their weight, Now they are on their way safely to a healthy weight. Thanks Hills!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My cats love the taste. Most of my cats are on Metabolic as they all seem to be overweight. Our largest cat has lost a few ounces but the weight loss is quite slow. All of them love the taste so there is no problem with that. I am happy that they have stopped gaining weight. They are like most house cats...sleep and eat.
