Hill’s Science Diet has a very new and exciting food called Perfect Weight, and when used in conjunction with their new 10-week Turnaround, your cat or dog can be on their way to a much healthier and longer life!
Over 50% of dogs are overweight. Your dog might be overweight and you might not even realize it. And if you do see them as just a “few pounds” overweight, you may not realize the impact just a few pounds has on your dog. Just 5 pounds on a small dog is like 30 pounds on a person. Think about how you feel when you are 30 pounds overweight, and that’s what your dog feels like with just 5 pounds too much weight on him.
If you know your dog is overweight, even if by just a few pounds, the first step is acknowledging it. And even if your dog is not overweight, and if they are already a perfect weight, why not keep them healthy with Hill’s Science Diet Perfect Weight dog food? This new food is available for adult dogs (and cats!) and they even make a special formula just for small breeds. This food is a breakthrough blend of natural ingredients, offers prebiotic fibers for gentle digestion, and offers 100% precisely balanced nutrition.
Perfect Weight can be ordered through Pet360, and is even available on auto-ship! I love that Hill’s recognizes that small breeds don’t need huge bags of dog food, so the Small & Toy Breed food is available in 2 bag sizes, 4lbs and 15lbs.
We have small breed dogs – five are Chihuahuas and one is a Shih-Tzu mixed breed, and even though our Chihuahuas aren’t at all overweight, we have had experience with an overweight small breed. Our Miniature Pinscher was 14 lbs at her heaviest, and that took a toll on her frame that was only supposed to hold 7 lbs. If only I knew then what I know now! Her obese weight contributed to her getting Diabetes, going blind, and passing away at only 13 years old. We are much more informed of dog foods now, and really feel that Hill’s Science Diet would have been the perfect food to keep her healthy it was around back then.
So you’re possibly acknowledging by now that your dog might be a little (or a lot) overweight. Great! The next step is getting them on a plan and sticking to it. Consistency is key!
- Your dog can’t stay on a plan if you don’t stay on it. So it’s really important that his feeding habits are on a strict schedule.
- His food should always be carefully measured so he gets exactly as much or as little as he needs. Say no to random scooping!
- The Science Diet Perfect Weight dog food bag has feeding guidelines to help you decide how much food your dog needs.
- Measuring cups will make feeding time easier on the both of you, and will ensure he gets the proper nutrition he needs.
- Consistency with potty time and exercise time is very important to your pet and their overall health.
Hill’s Science Diet doesn’t just provide you with the food to keep your dog healthy, they even give you an easy plan to follow! They call it the 10-week Turnaround. In just 10 weeks, your dog could be on a much healthier path!
70% of cats and dogs who used Science Diet Perfect Weight lost weight within 10 weeks. Check out this video for some real weight loss testimonials for Hill’s® Science Diet® Perfect Weight:
I think a lot of dogs put on the most pounds in the winter weather, especially here in the North East. And when you have small breeds like we do, they don’t like the subzero temperatures, and it’s not good for them either. So getting them to exercise indoors is very important if you cannot exercise them outdoors regularly. Check out these exercise tips from Hill’s!
