We just put a few rescued cats on this weight management chicken and rice formula as they seem to be getting a bit overweight. They love to eat and want to eat their food and other cats food as well.. Now at feeding time they get put in a different room away from the others and only fed weight management. It seems to satisfy their hunger so
far. They also tend to be a little more active.

We blend in Focus with pro plan chicken and rice to cut a few calories. Our cats are at a healthy weight and look great!

I am trying to get my 2 cats to lose weight, as suggested by their vet. I decided to try this food and my cats love it. Problem is: they love it so much they gobble it down and cry for more!!!! So when I'm home with them (and not at work), I feel compelled to dole out their evening meal in 2 parts. Has anybody else had this problem??? I never have and I've had cats all my life...

Started my young indoor cat at ideal weight. Kept him full and fit

I have been feeding my extremely overweight cat, Pro Plan Weight Management formula for the last few years. In two years, he has gone from 32 pounds to 26 pounds! His vet is very happy with his progress. He still has a long way to go but with ProPlan weight management formula, he can do it.

I've been feeding my cats this food for years and it's been great at keeping them at their ideal weight! They never tired of eating it and are always running to the bowls when it's feeding time. I would definitely recommend this food to anyone looking for a great formula and one that will keep their cats at an ideal weight.

We switched two of our cats that had been on the OM over to this and at their weigh in today neither of them had gained back any of the weight they had lost on the OM.

bought this cat food last month and the cats love it
by bchs on 03/01/2016
I bought some of this for change for my outside ferals and needless to say it has been disappearing at a rapid rate. I am assuming they are enjoying this.
by feral friend on 02/03/2016
Thank goodness my pets actually like this weight management food!!!
by Wendy on 02/03/2016
My cat had problems with hypercalcemia while on other diets, but as soon as I switched to this one, his hypercalcemia problems disappeared. My cat loves the flavor and I don't have problems with him not eating it.
by bobcatluvr22582 on 01/19/2016
I purchased this for a couple of cats that are a little on the heavy side and it seems to work great.
by Adopt4lovepets on 12/09/2015
We do not get in too many with overweight issues, but have. They did eat the Chicken and rice which sometimes can be difficult with felines.
by BethA on 12/04/2015
So glad I was able to start my "Sweetpea" on this WM formula. She has lost 2 lbs. & just loves this food. She runs to the bowl when she sees me open the bag!
by Susan55 on 11/09/2015
I've been feeding my over weight cat this for 2 months and she is down 2.2 pounds. She needs to lose about 6-7 more pounds.
by MelEMel on 11/05/2015
We greatly appreciated the samples that were given to us of this fresh & high quality packaged food. We help other rescues in the community with feral cat programs and they were happy to get some food for their cats in need. The cats enjoyed it very much. A special & healthy treat!
by DARL on 08/11/2015
I purchased this food for one of our senior cats who was getting a little too much "junk in her trunk." The vet suggested a weight management food so we purchased Pro Plan Focus Adult Weight Management Chicken and Rice Formula. We were hoping she would like it and she did so that is what we are feeding her now.
by jerseyninelives on 08/03/2015
We received this as a bulk donation for our rescue cats and were pleasantly surprised with how well it works. Often our cats are in stores (to be seen by the public for adoption), and because of this are caged. Caged cats tend to get bored and over-eat unfortunately. We decided to switch our cats to Weight Management to see if that would make a difference -- and it did! And we (and the cats) couldn't be happier while waiting for forever homes.
by chiclibrarian on 07/16/2015
Once again, cats seem to love the flavor of this food.
by tapps5 on 06/13/2015
This isn't as tasty as the other flavors but the cats still like it. They don't chow down as much as the regular chicken and rice. With less fat than the original it is a good choice for overweight kitties
by katlady on 05/25/2015
very nice food, helped my cat when we were trying to get her to lose weight!
by rachel on 05/06/2015
As Maya gets older, she seems to like to eat like a pig. But when she does, she gets fat and doesn't play as much. With the weight management, I can still give her some yummy food and she doesn't even know she's dieting.
by Nanswa on 04/28/2015
An overweight momma cat came in and adjusted well to this food
by annbehrendt on 04/07/2015
When we first received Tia she weighted 13.5 pounds and she is not a big cat. With putting her on weight management and some play time, she is now down to 9.9 pounds and is looking better.
by Bailey222 on 03/03/2015
many of the indoor cats are over weight...this product is perfect!
by sorina on 03/01/2015
The cats don't find this taste as good as the original chicken and rice flavor but it does have a good quality taste and ingredients
by katz on 02/22/2015
this is a product that would help a cat with a weight problem
by pammy63 on 02/16/2015
I used this on my over weight cat and he has loved it and lost some weight
by lsneed on 01/28/2015
We had an adult rescue cat who at age 3 suddenly started to add weight rapidly - until we switched him to this formula : chicken/rice weight management. We'd tried another food previously but struggled to get him to eat it - so this was a great find. He liked the food and began losing the extra pounds settling on his perfect weight! We kept him on it to maintain his ideal weight.
by LaraG on 01/08/2015
I have been feeding this to my four cats and two neighborhood cats for a long time and they have loved it, but just bought a new bag this week and none of the cats will eat it., my one cat was actually mad. Did you change the formula recently? I did go back and buy the Urinary Tract formula, but they don't like it either. I would recommend this a week ago, but not today.
by FourCats on 12/16/2014
I just bought a bag of this cat food and Mr. Binkey just loves it!! We've always had great luck with Purina.
by Doug879 on 11/27/2014
We have a over weight cat in fact she was the biggest the vet had seen before spaying, you can imagine the weight she put on after the spay. She is not back to a normal size yet, but have seen some weight dropped to date. The cats love the taste and we have no potty problems either.
by limerdelta on 11/18/2014
Our kitty had been gaining weight but we had trouble finding a food he would eat. He loves the Pro Plan Chicken and Rice!
by dogcat on 10/26/2014
One of my female cats are a little too heavy. Focus weight management helps
by litt on 10/01/2014
I have 3 indoor cats who are doing excellent on your Weight Mangement formula.
This helps with their minimum space to run and exercise.
by Pansy63 on 09/28/2014
We bought this for my mother's cat. She likes the flavor and doesnt know she is on a diet!
by Marilyn5 on 09/25/2014
I live on a busy street and, after losing a cat to traffic, I keep my four cats indoors. They all love to eat and, in spite of a lot of playing and enriched environment that encourages activity, would pack on the pounds without "Weight Management" Pro Plan. It keeps them in the healthy range in spite of their appetities.
by crazy cat lady on 09/17/2014
Benedict is now 10 and has been eating Pro Plan Focus Weight Management for most of those 10 years. He has a tendency to put on weight even though his food at home is restricted. (But he's learned to charm the neighbors and puts on a great begging routine). Although that's basically the only food we have fed him, he never seems to tire of it. When he doesn't enjoy it, it usually means he has a health issue. Fortunately that's been rare. Benedict and we thank you for Pro Plan.
by Chuck210 on 09/16/2014
Its hard to find a weight management food that cats will eat. My foster cat has packed on the pounds and I purchased the Pro Plan Focus Weigh Management food and was amazed how he effortlessly cleans his bowl.
by Esther on 09/15/2014
A rescue kitty who weighed 28 pounds was put on this diet, with measured portions twice a day. In 9 months he lost 5 pounds and is still losing.
by catsontheriver on 09/14/2014
I just bought my first bag of this. I had to switch to a weight management dry food, as one of my cats has gained too much weight. I didn't think they'd like the switch, but they love it! Hopefully, Lilly's next vet visit will find her a few pounds lighter.
by sodagirl on 09/14/2014
Dumbo and Lucy both ate this without having it mixed in with other dry food as I usually have to do when I try something new.
by Mindy on 09/12/2014
My Simon will only eat this food. He was very over weight and has lost some since starting this diet.
by SimonMissy Mom on 09/12/2014
I consistently feed our two cats Proplan Weight Management Formula. The cats apparently love the flavor as there is none left in their bowls. I also notice, that compared to other brands, there is very little kibble dust in the product. When this dust is present, it becomes obvious toward the bottom of the bag. I have had to use a colander with other brands to remove this dust before storing and feeding. Dusty food can't be pleasant for the cats.
by BubbasDad on 09/12/2014
Yes, I bought it about 2 month's ago & I always mix it with other dry food- so Tigger will NOT get bored & he lost about 4 lbs-the last month....
by Tigger on 09/11/2014
My four cats adore it! I have tried cheaper brands and more expensive brands. Â I have put them down simultaneously, (we call it the "Pet Food Diner " !)!, and the ProPlan bowl always empties --- to be sure , while the others are left standing ! (Including Iams, Wellness, Science Diet, Halo and Fromm) !
by Methuselah on 09/11/2014
I try to shop for healthy foods for my kitties, pro plan has a lot of good wholesome ingredients in their dry foods
by tom40 on 09/11/2014
I started purchasing Pro Plan's Weight Management dry food for my cat when Bodacious reached 16 pounds. He is an eating machine. We buy a different flavor for our other cat, Nietzsche, who is 11 pounds. Both cats prefer the Weight Management dry food over any other flavor we have tried. Don't know what it has in it, but they both love it.
by Zoiderella on 09/11/2014
We have been buying this for a few months one of my cats has bad food allergies, and he can eat this with no problems! It's also great because he has a weight issue. Our whole brood of cats (all 7) love it!
by Kristadanielle on 09/11/2014
When I adopted Circie she was on Pro Plan for kittens. I've kept her on Pro Plan (now the adult & weight management) mixed along with one from the Vet. She did not want to give up her Pro Plan. She'll soon be 4 and just had her yearly checkup in which her Doctor says her weight is perfect and she's in excellent health.
by Rescue Mommie on 09/11/2014
I have two 7-year-old tabby cat brothers. Both were obese -- due to free feeding when I had a geriatric cat who needed to eat frequently. The grey tabby went from 19 lbs to 14 lbs and the orange tabby from 17 lbs to 13 lbs. It took a year and I also fed ProPlan wet food (still do). They have been able to maintain their weight loss for over a year. Very happy with this food which they happily eat ... and so is their vet who has been recommending the food for cat weight loss.
by zeff1993 on 09/11/2014
I bought my cats several brands and my 8 cats wouldn't eat them, so I tried this brand and they all loved the weigh management one, cats are extemely fussy
by Irish girl 7 on 09/11/2014
I tried the weight managment formula as recommended by my vet. My cats love this formula so I now have two feeders - one for weight management & one for standard formula
by cttzoey on 09/11/2014
I started my cats on this food when I noticed that some of my cats were over eating. I've noticed that those cats over eating eat less now and have a healthy motabalism.
by Kcdeshotels42 on 09/11/2014
I bought this formula to help keep my 18 pound cat Hugo healthy and at the right weight.
by Ruppert on 09/07/2014
did not realize it was a diet food and one would have never known it
by Lorie on 09/06/2014
THis is a great food. My cat is the most food obsessed cat alive. But she actually paces herself now with these crispies. She gets full quicker and it seems to burn slower. Fantastic product
by Bombshelle on 08/12/2014
I love Pro Plan and have been buying this dry food for years. I tried the weight management formula after adopting my cat a couple of years ago. She needed to lose a little weight and this did the trick! She is now a pound lighter. I also want to note that she is a finicky eater and loves the taste.Â
by Donna on 06/08/2014
I used to buy Pro Plan Hairball Management but my husband accidentally bought this type. The cats and I saw no difference but I thought they felt lighter. Sure enough, when they went for their check-ups, they both had lost weight. They're small cats and they weren't overweight but one had lost 3 ounces and the other 11. If you want your cats to lose weight, I highly recommend this food! I should mention that I always mix the Pro-Plan with Purina One Hairball formula so used alone, I'm sure your cats would lose even more weight than mine did!
by kathnh on 01/12/2014
This food is so great for cats! I am a vet and recommend it all the time, fat cat or not. My cats eat it and love it. It is 46% protein (most other dry foods are mid to low 30%s). If your cat doesn't like canned or you just don't want to fool with the mess, this is definitely the next best option!
by jzapalac on 10/15/2013
I get this product for my food-obsessed (former stray) cat who needed to lose some weight. I like it because it is so high in protein. I spent a long time looking at the labels in the pet store and this easily had 2-3x the amount of protein in other dry foods, including wheat-free/organic brands. My cat will eat anything, so I can't comment on flavor.
by Diana on 10/10/2013
I have been feeding my 3-yr old cats (two, one male and one female) this food since they were adults and they have always liked the food and are maintaining a great weight. They are pretty large cats because they are polydactyls, so I feel it more important to keep track of their weight.
