Is Canned Dog Food Better for Weight Loss?
Answer

Yes, canned food is considered better than kibble or dry food for various reasons. Firstly, canned food is known for containing more meat protein than its dry counterparts. And secondly, they have lesser carbohydrates as well. According to the nutrient chart, canned food has 28 to 50 percent protein, 20 to 32 percent fat, and 18-57 percent carbohydrates. These numbers are 18-32 percent protein, 8-22 percent fat, and 46-74 percent carbs for dry. Additionally, thanks to their airtight packaging, canned dog food usually have no synthetic preservatives, which is a huge plus. There are o flavourings and food colourings either. Therefore, meat ingredients in canned food are close to their natural state, making them more palatable and appetizing than dry dog food.

Moreover, switching your regular dog treats with fresh carrots, apples, or green beans will also help along the weight loss journey. Remember to subtract the calorific value of goodies from the meal you provide your dog.

I bought a Hill's Prescription diet product labeled "Metabolic" with chicken flavoring. Our dog has been eating this for a very long time and has never had a problem. But now there was a huge mold spot on the top of the can. The packaging was intact, the top of the food was moldy

This is all our dog could eat!
VERIFIED PURCHASER

We have a 16 year old Brittany, and she was having trouble digesting her food, having runny bowel movements, vomiting, etc.. Our Vet prescribed this and its all she eats exclusively now and it has worked. She certainly seemed to love it . Its a little pricey, but it was worth it to have her feeling better again. We tried to go back to a less expensive brand that appeared to be similar, and quickly went back to this as her problems returned on the other food.

Hill's Prescription Vegetable & Chicken Stew has given me my ACTIVE dog back. I was very worried that my shih tsu -8 years old was starting to slow down. Since she has been on this product, she is back to being her fisty self and I love it. Thank You. She also is not gaining the weight that I think was part of the problem.Best of all I have NO PROBLEM at feeding time. Thank you very much.

solid stoole
VERIFIED PURCHASER

Both my dog's stoole is now solid (easy to pick up). I need to add small bits of roasted chicken (no skin) to get them to eat the stew. Guess they aren't crazy with the taste. I like the product, but very expensive. As long as the are doing better I will continue to buy the W/D cans of stew. Just wish it was't so expensive.

My Dog already has lost a lb.
VERIFIED PURCHASER

Very happy with this product which when combined with the Metablolic dry food, Cleopatra has lost a pound. She likes both which makes it easy for me. The only negative, which I think Hills needs to know, is that the pull off cover on the canned wet food doesn't work. That little tab breaks off, and I have had to use a can opener to open it. Perhaps something could be done to make it easier to open. Thanks.

My dog loves the food but doesn't loose weight
VERIFIED PURCHASER

My 4 year's shih tzu is 2 pounds overweight . She has been on metabolic diet for 4 months, she loves the food but didn't loose any weight so far. I am getting really frustrated about it. As for exercise, I take her for a walk everyday and for treats i give her one metabolic biscuit a day or a piece of apple and her food is measured every time. I am very disappointed after reading all the reviews where people say their dog lost weight in the first 2 months. what they do differently?

Our dog has been on this food for about 9 years. She is 12 now. We had a hard time trying to find something she liked and then this was prescribed to help with her weight. She is a dachshund and weight maintenance is important. It also keeps her very regular. I would recommend this to any dog owner. We mix it with the same dry dog food product.

Continued Weight Loss
VERIFIED PURCHASER

We have an older Border Collie mix who needed to lose some extra pounds in order to play the way she's used to. Our vet suggested Hills, and of course took her advice. Immediately, we saw results. And...our dog has taken to it really well. We give a mix of dry and wet. I think mixing with dry helps her to feel more full. Also, rather than buy separate treats, we use a small handful of her planned dry food as treats. That way she's not getting any additional calories. It works. Once in a while we'll give her the vegetable beef stew. When she realizes what she's eating, she looks up at me as if to say "Wow...this is good". As long as we follow the vets advice with the Hills, we continue to see weight loss and our fur baby is healthy and active as ever. Thanks.

All of my dogs love this weight control food!

Some of my dogs are a little on the chubby side and after a recent trip to the vet she suggested the metabolic diet. I have a lot of dogs so it's easier if I can feed them all the same diet. This will help the chubby ones lose and the others maintain. Well, I tried all 3 flavors of the canned metabolic including the chicken and tuna with vegetable and they go nuts for all of them! I've never had them all like a diet food so much!! Of course I wish the cans were a little less expensive but at lease you offer coupons to help with the cost. Thank you Hills! I'm hoping to see results very soon :)
