Description

Hills M/D available from VioVet

Hills prescription diet feline m/d - is a low calorie, high fibre diet with the highest levels of L-Carnitine to more effectively reduce weight and increase muscle mass while keeping cats feeling full.

Diet control food

8th Aug 2015
Boomie Shodeinde

Which of your product would you recommend to control weight for my cat?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

I would suggest a high protein, low carbohydrate diet. Hills m/d might be appropriate or you could try one of the Orijen, Ziwi Peak or Acana products.

Ideally check with your vet before ordering any of the Hills prescription diets.

We only have one flavour of this diet in a wet form. Others might be introduced in time, but for now you will have to stick to the one flavour. It is highly palatable and should be accepted well by your cat.
