Pudgy, Plump Pets? #HillsPet GIVEAWAY!

Is your furbaby looking like he or she is carrying around a few extra pounds these days?  Perhaps you've written it off as "winter weight" or just decided that Fido isn't really fat, he's "pleasantly plump?"  While the media keeps reminding us that Americans are overweight, so are our pets.  In fact, over half the population of dogs and cats in the US are overweight.  That's right, 53% of dogs and 55% of cats in the US are overweight.  A staggering number, isn't it?  Although, it's no wonder when so many of us mistake food and treats for love, and don't even try to tell me that you can resist those big eyes staring up at you!


With a lack of awareness about dog weight loss, many pet parents don't even realize their beloved 4-legged friend is overweight.  Diets for dogs just have not been a priority.  Even for the pet parents who have admitted their babies are a bit pudgy, trying to help your dog or cat loose weight is often frustrating.  Decreasing food portions and limiting treats is no fun - you feel like you're depriving your baby of food.  And when it comes to exercise, pets often have a, shall we say, great lack of cooperation.

I'm quite sure that at least 90% of my fellow pet parents can relate to this hilarious, but oh so true, video "One Big Kitty."  Whether your love is canine or feline, we've all experienced one or more of these moments...

Perhaps you're really not sure whether or not your pet is overweight.  You're not alone.  If you've asked yourself "Is my pet not at their ideal, healthy weight?," you have already taken the first - and hardest - step.  The next step is to have a simple discussion with your veterinarian about your pet's weight. If it turns out Fido is indeed "pleasantly plump," step three is to put him on a diet for dogs.


If you're looking for a way to help your overweight dogs or cats, please allow me to introduce you to Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution.  It works by activating metabolism to regulate appetite and burn fat.  Hill's reports, "In real life, normal conditions, 88% of dogs and cats that participated in our feeding trial lost weight without having to greatly change their life style."  (Someone tell me where can I snag the human version?! ha ha)
"8 out of 10 pet parents told us they would recommend Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution to a friend with an overweight pet."
PD_Metabolic_Canine_FPOfromclient_smAvailable for both dogs and cats, Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution has been designed to transform your pet's weight by changing what you feed, not how you feed.  As a pet parent who enjoys showering my dogs with love - and treats - I know this is a huge component in a successful weight loss program for pets.  The special formula is safe, effective and fast - Hill's says you will see a leaner and more playful pet in just 60 days!

Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution features a complete line of dry food, canned food and treats - all of which are designed to work together for an easy, flexible weight loss program without deprivation or pushing your pet to exercise more than they may be comfortable with.  Hill's has truly made it as simple as possible for pet parents to successfully keep their dogs and cats on the program!

So... is your dog or cat pudgy?  Do you think Hill's can help?

Our Aussie mixes are twelve years old and just starting to pack on the pounds. They've slowed down in the last year. We just got a puppy, hoping to bring back some of the spring in their step, but are still slower. *sigh. Flash and Patches, half Australian Shepherd, half German Shepherd.
