Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic for dogs


Hill’s Metabolic is a weight management food for dogs, formulated to help your pet maintain a healthy body weight. This prescription food uses nutrigenomics to help your dog’s metabolism burn fat rather than storing fat. This allows them to lose extra weight and keep it off more effectively, which is better for their general health and wellbeing.


Why Weight Management Matters

Dogs tend to gain weight gradually as they age, so you might not notice it at first. However, it’s important to keep tabs on your pet’s weight, for their wellbeing and your peace of mind. Even a few extra kilos can lead to health problems, like diabetes or heart disease. Being overweight can significantly impact your dog’s quality of life, and shorten their life expectancy.
