Product details

Hill's Prescription Diet Canine Metabolic has been scientifically developed to help your dog safely achieve their ideal weight.

How it works

Your dog’s body will naturally work to prevent fat loss, so helping your pet lose weight can be a challenge. This food has been formulated to do as much as possible to help the process, with a special selection of ingredients which encourage your dog’s body to burn fat.

Because it is the food’s ingredients which make it work, you can feed your dog as normal without drastically cutting down on portion sizes. Meticulously measuring each meal out can be time consuming, so is unnecessary with this food, making it an easy alternative to other products.

Studies have shown that 96% of dogs have lost weight within two months of changing to this food, and it has been clinically proven to enable a loss of 28% of your dogs’ body fat within this time. The formula also works to stop your dog regaining the weight they have lost, giving them a long term solution for a slimmer, healthier life.

Key benefits

  • scientifically selected ingredients encourage your dog’s body to burn fat
  • 96% of dogs lose weight within two months of changing to the food
  • 28% of body fat can be lost within two months
  • 90% of dogs who begin the weight loss programme complete it
  • clinically proven to hinder weight regain once programme completed.

When to use it

Like us, dogs often put on weight gradually, so you might not notice straight away that your pet is becoming overweight. Some of the tell tale signs to look out for are a lack of energy, increased panting, and moving more slowly than they used to.

Most of the time, weight gain is caused by over eating and a lack of exercise, but it's still important to take your dog to the vet for a check up when you notice any changes. Your vet will be able to recommend a suitable weight loss programme for your pet, and check that their weight isn't causing - or caused by - any other health issues. 

Once your dog has regained his or her ideal weight, you can help prevent future issues by getting them weighed regularly at the vet, and keeping them healthy and active through the right diet and exercise. 

Because veterinary diets are formulated for the nutritional support of pets with specific clinical conditions, we recommend that you only use them under professional advice. For more information on feeding Hill's Prescription Diet Canine Metabolic to your dog, please consult your veterinary surgeon.
