Rated 5 out of 5 by Terresa Excellent source of nutrition
My Lab needed to drop 15 pounds to have ACL surgery be successful. I take care of my pets so why would I feed subpar food to them? The source of the protein and the chelated minerals are important to me, as well as not having added dyes! Well, Rusty lost the weight and I now combine this weight control food with AvoDerm Natural Chicken Meal & Brown Rice Formula Adult Dry Dog Food for all of my pets. I also have a Great Pyrenees and two terrior/pug mixes. They all enjoy it and have healthier skin and shinier coats because of it! My lab used to have flakey dry patches and now, even in the winter, he no longer is scratching all of the time. "You are what you eat" is true for our pets, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LGC7 Our go-to food
We had a difficult time locating this food when our local stores discontinued carrying it. We tried another (I believe it was Nutro) and found that our Great Pyrenees lost the shine to her coat and shed profusely. We can only purchase this online now, but found that it was worth it. Her coat is shiny and fuller again.

I've been searching for a high quality, tasty, weight control kibble for our 3 couch potato pooches and this is it!
Our dogs are older and less active, so tend to put on weight easily. Since feeding them this, they have reduced their weight gradually and appropriately and now maintain healthy weights, their coats look healthier, eyes brighter and they have more energy. Unlike other brands I've tried, they look forward to meal time and eat the entire bowl ~ and they are full and satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ClassiestAura Good!
This is very good. I changed to this without gradually introducing it with the old food and there was no adverse digestive distress. My dog loves this by itself, but when I mix it with another Weight Control Dog Food, she will eat the other first then eat the AvoDerm food. My dog has not lost any weight, but I do give her too many snacks and I feed her the max amt. since she always seems hungry. The previous food she was on, I read on the package that for her weight, I could give her 1 1/4 cup and I was giving her that twice a day. I didn't think that I should divide that by 2 if I feed her twice a day. Oops.

by Meeloo So glad to see this product is available again
My 7 year old Shih-Tzu was raised on Avoderm. When I got another Shih-Tzu one year ago I looked for the product but was told it had been pulled from the market. I am so glad it is back. It came highly recommended and I would recommend this food to anyone who truly loves their Pet.

I have an old dog that is just getting fat. She eats just about anything so the taste test isn't going to work on this one. However, i must say that there has been a change in her coat softness and appearance after using the Avoderm product. she might have lost a pound or two but its too early to tell long term but she seems to like it. I have switched my 15 month GSD to the large breed formula with similar results. They seem to really like it.

by AKKMom Tasty doggie diet food?
I guess so! Both of my middle-aged doggies really LOVE this food. I was thrilled to find a quality food that is good for their double-coats and that was lower in calories. They love the taste and actually finish their bowls! My guys are already losing weight, which was the ultimate goal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PugMan Really keeps their weight down
I have been using the AvoDerm weight control formula chicken and brown rice now for over three years and all four of our pugs (2 males & 2 females) have been able to maintain a normal weight. Only one of our females has a lower metabolic rate that requires half of what the other three eat. You might feel guilty in a case like this but you have to look at the dogs overall health. At first I felt like I was depriving her but now I pat myself on the back. She's ten years old, isn't over weight and looks great with no rib bones showing and can run like the others do.
