Transition Instructions

When switching your dog’s diet, we recommend transitioning from the current diet to our Fat Dogs® Formula over a 10 day period. Replace 10% of the current diet with our Fat Dogs® Low Calorie Dry Dog Food each day until they are fully transitioned. If you do not have any of your current formula to mix, reduce the amount of Fat Dogs® Formula fed for the first few days, feeding smaller more frequent meals and increase over time. Do not free feed.

Natural Balance Fat Dogs Chicken & Salmon Formula Low Calorie Dry Dog Food is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 173.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obese Dog I adopted an obese dog. The vet recommended I feed him 1/2 cup dry dog food twice a day. Needless to say the dog was not happy with this portion control. I spoke with a very helpful Chewy representative on the phone and she brought to my attention the "fat dog" food. He now enjoys larger portions and is much happier. He is also slowly losing weight. Thank you Chewy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She likes it!! FINALLY found a "diet" food my overweight lab would eat. The vet had originally had me use Hills Science Diet, which she refused to eat - something that had never happened with any food before (hence the weight problem); but after a little research, I choose Natural Balance Fat Dog and she loves it! The weight is starting to come off and she's starting to act like her old, spunky self again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fat Dog by Natural Balance is great food for that dog trying to lose weight. Our dog lost 6 lbs in a very short amount of time! I would, and have recommended Fat Dog to anyone with a dog that needs to lose weight. We rescued a small shih tzu mix female dog that weighed 24 lbs when we got her; she now weighs 18 lbs and enjoys running, jumping, and playing with our other dog. It makes a world of difference to have excess weight off! Thank you Natural Balance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lowest calorie dog food and it's Natural Balance I trust and like Natural Balance so I did not hesitate to try this one since I could not find any other brand that was lower in calories, including the prescription diet foods! My dog loves it and it's been much easier to control her weight with this food. She likes it when it's wet and dry. Would be great if they sold cans of this product as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food! My agility dog has always struggled with weight, yet she needs high protein food too. I mix this food with another quality food (also from Chewy) and both my dogs love it! HIghly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the doctor ordered My dog loves this food & the vet told me she needed to drop a few lbs. It's only 250cal/ cup & has been doing a great job of helping with weight management. I also love the price & the auto shipping option, which I signed up for, so I don't have to go running out to the overpriced pet store. For this 28lb bag I paid the same for a 15 lb bag at the pet store near me! Much better value on Chewy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food I have an obese dog with thyroid issues. He loves this food. He has lost over 20lbs in 6 months without making any other lifestyle changes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They like the taste I'd hoped to get my ever hungry Brussels Griffon to lose a few pounds, and she did lose some. Then I adopted another and another. The last one in is obsessed with food, and was obviously fed human food by her previous owner. She needed to lose weight, and I hoped that this food would fill her up enough that she wouldn't eat anything she could find (including wood, plastic, anything really...). Well she hasn't lost weight and she still eats anything that she can find. But she, and the others do like this food. So overall it's pretty good. But here is the BIG downfall - they poo CONSTANTLY! Huge ones, multiple times per walk, and oftentimes in the house because they can't hold their poo in. They poo like dogs 5 times their size!!! Solid poo, but dear God - way too much poo! I just started a different brand because I couldn't take it anymore. They don't like the flavour as much, and they make stinky gassy smells a bit more. But their poo is much more manageable. I'm still looking for a good lo-cal, lo-poo food for them. Any suggestions would be welcome! thanks.
