Weight Management

Just like the human epidemic, almost 50% of the pet population is overweight. Even a little extra weight can lead to serious health problems. The pet's quality of life and relationship with family is also impacted because that extra weight can reduce play time, impact mobility and affect the lifelong general health of your cat.

Hill's nutritionists & veterinarians developed Prescription Diet® Metabolic clinical nutrition specially formulated to manage your cat's weight. In fact, 88% of pets lost weight at home in 2 months when fed the nutrition of Metabolic.

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 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 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 Broke the plateau One of my foster cats came back from adoption weighing 20 lbs. I took her to my regular vet and he put her on regular diet food. She lost down to 17 lbs but plateaued at that weight and stopped losing. I took her to another vet who put her on Metabolic and she started losing again. Now she's down to a slim 13.75 lbs (she's a big cat). She loves the food and has almost reached her goal weight of 13 lbs. I plan to keep her on Metabolic for weight maintenance too. It's expensive but probably cheaper than vet bills for whatever conditions she could have developed staying obese.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No weight loss My cat is extremely over weight at 21 lbs. I've tried several different low fat cat foods, both prescription and over the counter. I started my cat on a combination of Feline Metabolic can and dry food a year ago. Unfortunately she has not lost any weight even with lowering the amounts that I feed her several times. The only good thing is that she has not gained any more weight. I was just advised by a Hill's customer service agent to go back to my vet to get a better understanding of what type food and how much my cat should be eating. I'm very frustrated that I can't find any cat food that works for my sweet girl!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is helping my cat lose weight I started with R/D dry, but my cat wasn't losing weight. I switched to prescription Metabolic wet and dry food, and after a few tries, got the right mix, and Oliver is losing weight on it. While it is pretty expensive, it is doing a good job and as long as he continues to lose weight, I will use it. He loves both the wet and dry food. I would recommend it to anyone who has tried other food, with no results. This seems to do what others (even Hills) did not do. I am very pleased with the results and Oliver loves it. So all is well. Thank you, Olivers' mother

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!
