Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Dog But a Little Pricey Both our dogs have been using R/D for years. One had a weight problem, and when we got the other one we just started him on it. Obviously they enjoy the taste because they let us know when it's feeding time. The biggest issue is the cost. I highly recommend going to Hill's website to download the coupon before purchasing your supply. Just remember Hill's limits their coupons but now does allow me to print different ones for the dog food and the cat food. A while back they didn't allow that. To my knowledge the website is the only place to get the coupon. It would be nice if they provided some kind of loyalty points for long-term customers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great food, my pet has lost weight after 4 weeks, but is pricey. When I took my dog in to the Vets I found out he was really over weight. I took a sample of the Prescription r/d weight loss food home and my dog really liked it. I have continued to feed him the food and he is losing weight very well. I had gotten in to a bad habit of feeding him people food as well as his own food, since I have corrected the bad habits he is losing weight and is feeling a lot better! He is enjoying our walks again and playing with his cat buddy again. I will continue to purchase this dog food for him. I do appreciate the coupons and I make sure to use them!! Thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from weight loss without hunger! My little dog has been chubby her entire life. This dog food allows her to lose weight without being hungry. In fact, she is happier now than she was on regular dog food, because she feels full all day long. She really likes the taste of this food. She does have more frequent bowel movements from the increased fiber, but she looks and feels great. She will soon transition to the weight maintenance food, as she is steadily losing weight now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product. My husband caused my dog to become overweight by feeding too much human and pet food, after he passed away, I tried several different foods to try to help her loose weight and nothing worked. Since she has been on the Hill Science diet prescription metabolic dogfood, her weight loss has been slow but steady. Which I find amazing because of her knee injury and surgery she has had limited mobility, but still is loosing weight. This is a before photo of Millie at her top weight of 97lbs. She is now at 75lbs but still has a ways to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent, well balanced food for dogs. We own 4 geriatric dachsunds, ages from 9-15. All of them were overweight and 3 of the 4 were experiencing back and hip problems. Our vet recommended this dog food after our youngest had a vestibular stroke. Two weeks after they began their new dog food all had lost 2 pounds each. Its been a month now and all of our dogs are behaving like puppies again. They have lost between 3-5 lbs. and their coats are shiny and soft. We always thought they were pretty healthy but the changes in their behavior and looks is astonishing. Thank you so much for their amazing makeover and their improved quality of life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loves the taste and lost weight! My Chocolate Lab began putting on weight at the age of 2 1/2...she tipped the scales at 115 lbs. and the vet wanted her to lose weight for health reasons. I began feeding her Hills Prescription Diet R/D and she started to shed the pounds. It is now 18 months later and she has lost 21 pounds - a svelte 94 lbs. She loves the taste and has more energy than ever! Thank you for a great product that works.
