Product details

Hill’s Prescription Diet Canine Metabolic helps your dog lose weight safely and comfortably.

What it’s for

Sometimes it can be hard to notice that your dog’s gained a lot of weight just by looking at them. But you might be more likely to notice them having a lot less energy than they used to, panting more than usual or slowing down. Often the best way to deal with an overweight pet is to make sure they get a lot more exercise and eat less – no more sneaky under the table treats!

It’s a good idea to get your dog checked out by a vet though, so you can find out if your furry friend has any health issues behind their weight gain. They can also see if the extra weight has caused any problems of its own. They might have some recommendations on how your dog can lose the weight.

Once your pet’s slimmed down again, you can maintain their new healthy shape through plenty of energetic walks, playtime and the right balanced diet.

Key benefits

  • 96% of dogs lost weight with this food
  • dogs can lose up to 28% of their body fat in two months
  • helps reduce the risk of weight gain
  • dogs feel full and satisfied throughout
  • available in both dry and wet formulas.

How it works

Your dog’s body has evolved to hold onto all the fat it can! A relaxed lifetime of snoozes on your sofa and walkies means that all that fat storage isn’t as important anymore. Hill’s Prescription Diet Canine Metabolic has been specially designed to encourage your pet’s body to burn fat instead of store it. This means you can feed them normal portions so they stay comfortable as they slim down, making their diet easier on both you and them.

Veterinary diets like this one have been specially made to support pets with specific medical conditions. Because of this, they might not be suitable for all pets, so we'd recommend getting professional advice before feeding them to your pet. If you think your dog could benefit from eating Hill’s Prescription Diet Canine Metabolic, why not have a chat with your vet?

  • Excellent
    I started feeding my Cavalier King Charles spaniel with this as I to my shame, let him gain weight before I realised. I took him to the weight loss clinic run by nurses at my vet surgery & they recommended feeding Hills metabolic when losing weight with his normal food wasn't working. Working with them on a regular basis, & taking their advice, he soon lost weight. Cavaliers are prone to weight gain, & I now watch his weight very carefully having learned a lot from clinic visits. I have kept him on it, as returning even to a light food he began to gain weight, but review this regularly with the vet on his health check visits. After losing weight his love of exercise has returned dramatically & he is a much happier dog. I would recommend as long as the vet is involved as well.

    Hills Metabolic diet is perfect for a dog wanting to lose weight. My border terrier/ pug cross was 14.8 kg and is now 9.2kg and running round with a trim shapely body like a puppy. He will be 10 this year!! Highly recommended by me and my vet.
