Digestive / Weight / Glucose Management

Some dogs can be more prone to gain weight than others. Even a little extra weight can impact the pets 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 4 out of 5 by from Costly My senior 9 year old Golden Retriever needed more fiber to firm up her stools. My vet recommended the canine W/D formula. She does seem to like it, however, the consistency of the food is on the sticky side. I've found if I warm it up a bit it can be chopped up easier. It is quite costly for dog food having little meat content...mainly corn. The protein level is low. It has helped firm up the stools but she seems to have more gas than before. I will continue to use and see if there is any variances to her semi-annual blood tests since being on this diet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from helped colitis My little Scotty has colitis. She suffered with this off and on for several years until one of the vets put her on WD. Both wet and dry. She is 11 years old and has been doing very well. No colitis acting up. No more accidents....which she feels so bad when that happens. I love the product but as a senior citizen it is a little expensive for me to buy. I look for coupons to help out. There are times that I buy for Miss Maggie and have to do without something for myself. BUT like all of us that have companions.....we are happy to extend ourselves for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product helps keep my dog healthy My dog doesn't like to eat dry dog food. When he became diabetic, the w/d dry dog food was the food I put him on. I added the wet food to the dry and he has eaten it for 3 years now. It was easy to get his food and insulin balanced so that his blood sugars remained in the "normal" range. My only problem with the product is the can. I used to slide it out of the can and slice it to get even helpings. With the new pull open lids the food won't slide out past the lip of the can so I have to "dig" it out and measure it...a lot more work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from excellent overall dog food My dog was prescribed this food by our trusted vet for a specific medical issue. It has done it's job with the desired results; I will keep her on this diet for ongoing good health. There are many side benefits including less gastrointestinal problems, better absorbsion, and for the first time solid bowel movements. I had tried literally at least 30 "premium" foods in the past with results that cannot compare with this food. My only negative would be that it can only be purchased at the vets office which is not always convenient. It would be nice if it were available by mail order with a written prescription.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This has extended my dogs life We didn't know our baby was very sick until the vet got back his labs. She called immediately that morning & said how sick he really was & that we had to start on this food. We were like oh no, he was a picky eater & we thought for sure he wouldn't like it. He doesn't like it, he loves it. He'll only eat canned though. The dry is too hard for him & we tried crunching it up, putting water on it, nothing helped. He's always ready for his meals & he's as healthy as he can be. Thanks for producing this food or who knows what would have happened. He's been eating this for a few years now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from heard nothing good my vet recommended this product when my min pin was diagnosed w diabetes. I kept doing research for the best type of food to feed her. Everything I kept coming across about hills prescription diet was negative. I used it anyways because my vet recommended it and I trust her. She saved my Dixies life. Dixie LOVES this product. I thought at first she ate it because she was starving. But she truly does love both canned and dry. I also buy the special treats for her too. Thank you for making this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Food!!! I have a six year old Pug who is a recently diagnosed Diabetic. This food is a live saver. It is very hard to find food that is for Diabetic animals, and I feel good this is from a company I trust. But i dont understand why everyone is complaining about the price! Its saving your animals life!! I have no problem paying for this food. Thank you HILLS for producing this product! I dont ever think you will fully understand how important this is to people that have Diabetic animals!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from W/D has improved my dogs life and personality. My 13 year old rescue schnauzer has been diagnozed with a life threatening illness which required us to put her on your W/D product line. She needed to be on a strict diet and maintained portion control. Immediately I noticed her energy level picked up and she became very spry for a 13 year old dog. Two weeks along her coat became noticably shinny with less shedding. Her appetite continues to be very good but we are noticing a toner body because she is more active. We have changed our other three dogs over to Science Products. True Believers!
