    Hill's® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Weight Management Cat Food - Chicken is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My pet lost weight I feel that Metabolic Diet worked better than typical low calorie or low fat poducts. My cat lost significant weight in a relatively short amount of time. She became more energetic which, I think, added to the weight reduction. Her coat also became very shiney. The science that went into choosing the ingredients for this product really seems to be working. The reasons that I did not give 5 stars are these: 1) it is a little pricey, 2) I don't think my cat really loves the taste because she was reluctant when switching and she usually eats anything (therefore the weight issue), 3) the nuggets for the dry food are too large; she is a cat that swallows pieces whole and vomits food that has large pieces, and lastly, 4) I personally dislike the smell. I've served other canned foods that smell much nicer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does help with weight loss My Cat lost over nine pounds using the Prescription Metabolic Canned food. The dry food, based on my trying the dry RD type the year before, did nothing to help. The Metabolic Canned version came to market and I then used that. Over nine pounds lost for my cat was an incredible result. I have now switched to the Science Diet Light canned for the future as the calorie count is similar. I think my cat would have lost the weight using the Science Diet Light Canned as well just because I never used canned food before. PLUS, I was dedicated to using just one 5.5 ounce can per day of intake. Nonetheless, the Prescription Metabolic Canned version is what we used and it helped us achieve this amazing result.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from metabolic wet cat food My two thirteen year old cats love it. It's pricey, but at least I know I'm giving them quality soft food. I've always been a fan of Hills. I'm hoping that this weight loss diet really works!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's cat food!! This is diet cat food, which our vet recommended (& prescribed) for our overweight cat. It seems to be working, as - slowly but surely - she's dropping weight. The most positive aspect of this product is that the cat seems to really like it, which is a lot more than we can say for most human-targeted diet food. That being said, the cat became overweight in large part because she enjoys just about all food. ;-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat's coat never looked so good! My cat's big to begin with, so extra pounds don't help her overall health. Our vet recommended Metabolic, and I decided to give it a try--even though I wasn't thrilled about the likely higher ongoing cost, the extra trips to the vet to purchase it, and the very real possibility my cat wouldn't like "diet" food. I was wrong all the way around! My cat loves her Hill's wet and dry Metabolic, her coat is soft and silky, and she's lost a little weight. I pre-order my cat's food through my vet's office, and they even take the great coupons Hill's offers (making Hill's much less expensive than the brand I used to buy). My cat, my wallet, and I are very happy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cats seem to like it! It's always a feeding frenzy when our three cats get their wet food at dinner time. They love this food! It seems to be helping with wait loss too!
