But he couldn't say enough good things about it. Curious as to whether or not anyone here has used it.
My 5 year old has been on WD for 2 years. She's overweight but also needed a low fat diet due to pancreatic problems. She eats dry only and
does fine on it. She's even lost a little weight. I personally don't like the ingredients but the formula works for my cat and that's all that matters.
Vets recommend Science Diet prescription foods because they know what
works and doesn't work. The WD is a fairly low carb food compared to some of the over the counter weight control foods like Nutro or Iams or Wellness.
