Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Weight Management Chicken Flavor Dry Dog Food is a prescription dog food made with feed grade ingredients, which are unfit for human consumption. It contains 25 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 3 anti-nutrients including Soybean Mill Run, Soybean Meal, and Pea Fiber (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 8 other sketchy ingredients, including Powdered Cellulose and Natural Flavors.

Warning Due to this being a grain-free food that contains legumes or potatoes this Hill's Prescription Diet recipe may be implicated in the FDA's ongoing investigation into diet-related Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
