Alternative to Hill's Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution ?
My vet gave me a free sample of Hill'sŪ Prescription DietŪ
Feline Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution because nothing I do is helping Tutu lose weight.
She's about 12 years old, spayed, should be 8-9 lbs but she's 11.
She gets 1/8 cup low-cal kibble every night (so that she doesn't wake me up at 4am, also so the kibble can "brush" her teeth) and 1/2 can of FancyFeast twice a day. Every time we go abroad (three times now) she looses weight because she doesn't eat American cat food....
So Doc gave me the sample of Metabolic Hill's and I can't say if it works yet. I was more worried about her not liking the canned food, because she's SO particular and ONLY eats specific brands.... sigh. But she does like them.
Anyway, does anyone know of perhaps a cheaper alternative to Hill's Metabolic canned food? Or maybe there's NOTHING special about anything Hill's makes? (my suspicion - this new product just sounds like "weight loss pill" to me).
