    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best food ever bought for weight loss. I have a chihuahua, well over weight. I have fed him the Hills, Metabolic food for approximately 4 months and he is down to the weight he is suppose to be. His body looks better (like a dog) and his little legs are not extending the wrong way. He has a lot more energy than he has ever had. I recommend this food for weigh loss, they love the taste, you won't regret it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rusty 19.8 pounds to 10.4 pounds 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weight loss is amzing Our black lab being a typical lab has a never ending appetite and this resulted in her approaching 98 pounds. With the extra weight she starting developing shoulder problems so we took her to a specialist who recommended putting her on a weight reducing food. We started her on a Hills Metabolic regiment and she has lost about 20 pounds over the last year. No more shoulder problems and now has a real spring to her step! Yes it is expensive but it does work and she actually loves the food. Soon we will move her back to a none-grain base food and watch her more closely for weight gain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Results Since my 12 year old schipperke was put on Hills Rx Metabolic six months ago, she has lost 5 lbs. She likes the taste of thee food and does not seem hungry between prescribes feedings. This is the most effective diet dog food that I have fed my dog. I highly recommend it to others looking for effective and satisfying results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! One of my small dogs was overweight. The DVM prescribed Metabolic Diet for him. We had great results. Now all of our dogs are on it for maintenance. It is expensive, but certainly worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Camo is a leaner weiner dog My dachshund Camo is a tween doxie that got up to 25 lbs. Our vet suggested Metabolic wet to begin our weight loss journey. Over six months, Camo dropped to 17 lbs which we have pretty much maintained. We have switched him over to Metabolic Dry now for maintenance. This product works and Camo really enjoys the taste. Would definitely recommend to pet owners with overweight dogs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Prescription Diet My beagle, Hallie, has been on this for a few years and she has lost weight and is so healthy. She was a rescue so we think she's 13 or 14 but acts like a much younger dog. She really likes the food and the larger size kibble gives her a good chew. I also use it as a low fat training treat: put some in a small pie pan with a little water and pop it in the freezer. After a while I put the separated kibble in a bag and keep it in the freezer. When I call my dogs to come get a "popsicle" they come quickly into the house and go the freezer and wait for their treat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working to control weight Since my dog is prone to weight gain, my veterinary suggested we try a weight management dog food. I have been very happy with the hill's. He is able to digest it easily, and he really likes it!
