Digestive / Weight / Glucose Management

Some dogs can be more prone to gain weight than others. Even a little extra weight can impact the pet's quality of life and relationship with family because that extra weight can reduce play time, impact mobility and affect the lifelong general health of your dog. Weight problems can be successfully managed through changes in your dog's food.

Hill's nutritionists & veterinarians developed Prescription Diet® w/d® clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your dog's weight management. In fact, w/d is clinically tested nutrition for conditions that respond to fiber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WD Prescription food is great I have a diabetic dog and for 4 days I had to use something from a pet store that they said was ok for diabetic dogs. Well let me tell you it was not, his blood sugar was normal and then 4 days later it went up above 500. It took several months to get it back down to normal and as long as I leave him on Hill's Science diet WD prescription dog food, his blood sugar stays perfect. Please tell all the vets who sale this to recommend this to their customers with diabetic dogs, I realize it is very expensive, but well worth it. I wish it was a bit less expensive, but the difference it has made for our Bammer and that we still have him is worth the special dog food, special treats and the insulin he must have each day to keep him here with us. He is worth the price and love that big dog to pieces. I highly recommend this dog food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Lifesaver. Fritz the Dachshund belongs to an elderly lady I take care of. He at one time weighed 25 pounds. We noticed he was peeing on the carpet at night, which was highly unusual for him. He lost 5 pounds in 3 days. The vet did a blood test, his blood glucose was 552. Tried portioning his food ( a well known name brand), a week later it was 389, a week after that it was 409. We then tried the Prescription Diet food for weight and glucose control. With portioning this food, exercise, and insulin his sugar dropped to 101......... down 308 points in a week! Just last week it was 83. His weight is holding steady at 18 pounds as well. I highly recommend this food. It was literally a lifesaver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Food that made the difference in our life My beagle mix would eat just about anything, even if it made her sick. However, when she ended up with bladder stones and a thyroid problem, Hill's Prescription Diet came to her rescue along with her thyroid pill. She topped at 41 lbs at her highest. With her lifestyle changes she was able to drop weight and maintain at 18 lbs. Hill's Prescription Diet Dog Food has made the difference in our life because it has helped with my dog's longevity in her health by providing the right nutrients tailored to her needs. To help her with losing her weight she ate R/D dry and when she was down to a healthy weight she ate W/D. She has been on W/D for 7 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Fiber Great for Gland Expression My 3 year old Brussels Griffon/Cairn Terrier mix has been on the w/d for over two years now. He was put on this food for the high fiber content. He is unable to express his glands naturally; on his old food his glands would fill up within a week of being expressed. Obviously, this was a big problem! His vet suggested the w/d and it has worked wonders! After switching him over his problem completely reveresed. Instead of expensive surgery, or who knows what, all I need to do is feed him the w/d. I couldn't be more pleased. I was paying a similar price for his old food so price isn't a problem for me. My dog is the opposite of food moivated so he isn't big on the taste. We add a little cottage cheese or canned w/d to entice him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We all like it With our Vet's recommendation, we put both of our Yorkshires on this diet to lessen the chance of repeating Pancreatitis on Ginger. She did quite well for several more years and now Nyla continues with the same feeding regimine. Mixing canned with dry and a spoonful of yogurt, she can't wait to eat. It tastes a little plain to me, but she eats every last bite down to licking the bowl clean. Our cat Grace' also eats a few bits at times. Thans Hills and God Bless. The Webers

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Diabetic Canine Finds It Too Dry My minature poodle recently diagnosed with diabetes finds it too dry and dosen;t seem to like it. We have to mix it with w/d low glucose wet food to coat the pellets so she will eat it. Otherwise she will only eat it if she is starving and needs to eat regularly. Our Bijon without diabetes won't eat the dry pellets at all and will lick the wet food off when we mix it. They eat together so we have to feed them the same thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge help ... but unsure of amount to give ... Have been dealing with my pugs gastro issues for years ... bouts of vomiting and would be unsettled. Vet put him on id and then zd but he developed loose stools and after only a few days on wd he's doing great! Only question though is about the feeding guidelines ... my pug is on the taller side and is 30 pounds, big for his breed but due to his height really only needs to lose about 5 pounds. However, the guidelines suggests over two cups a day for him and this seems like an enormous amount of food (even given the high fiber content) so I'm experimenting and hoping I'm not under-feeding the poor guy, hard to tell since he always acts hungry, he is a pug after all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for weight loss and good health Our 5 year old lab, Sammie, blew out her ACL. We had to take her to have surgery. She weighed 108 pounds. I knew it was too much, but we were feeding her another store bought "diet" food using instructions printed on the bag. She never lost any weight. After surgery we were told she had to loose weight or the surgery would have been for nothing and we would be back soon for her other hind leg. We followed the instructions on feeding given to us by the Vet, and she has lost approx. 20 pounds since her surgery the beginning of March, and we are hoping to have her lose a little more. Our other lab now eats this food also--she is a very finicky eater and she really likes this food. I would definitely recommend this food to anyone that wants to get their over-weight dog healthy again!!!
