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.

  • Not Happy...basically no weight loss at all

    By on

    We have finished two bags of "Fat Dog", with the highest of hopes. We have a Border Terrier who is getting up in years, less active, and has gained quite a bit of weight over the last two years. He requires a limited ingredient diet and we've been using all Natural Balance foods for about 4 years and have been very happy with them..for whatever reason, this food, being fed in the same quantities as his normal small breed LIT Natural balance, did not help bring his weight down at all. I checked the guidelines, and for weight loss we were supposed to feed 1/2 cup, twice a day (average of 1 cup per day) to achieve weight loss...it didn't happen - it looks like a LOT of food for a little dog, We have finished two bags of "Fat Dog", with the highest of hopes.

We have reduced treats drastically, and even switched to frozen cut green beans for treats in place of all but a couple of times a day for treats....I was glad to see that it has helped some pets, upset that it has not helped mine...trying a new brand. … more

  • Great food, wish it was packaged differently

    By on

    My dog loves this food - while it's only been about a month, we can definitely see her losing all the extra weight she's gained recently, and is still filled with energy. I wish the larger bags were packaged differently, though - we tried our best to reseal it, but still fell victim to an ant infestation and had to get rid of half the bag. This is remedied easily enough by transferring the food into a resealable container, but didn't realize it would be an issue at the time of purchase. Still would definitely recommend if your pup is on the chunky side and you're trying to help them shed those extra pounds.

  • Fat Dogs for my Tubby Girl!

    By on

    When this arrived I mixed it with the food she was already eating, she became ill a couple of days later. I didn't think it was the food but, I did stop feeding it to her and went and bought a small bag of her other food. It turns out that she had a bug and was on meds for 10 days. The food, well she hasn't noticed any change. But she did have this food a couple of years ago and it did not bother her then either. We will keep with this food in order to get her weight back down.

  • My picky girls won't eat it

    By on

    My girls did not like the food...not because of the quality but because they are extremely picky. I had to take them to the vet after Hurricane Irma due to their stress levels (we live on the water and stayed home during the storm). My vet requested they be put on a prescription dog food due to their age and joint problems. All that said, I have packed up the food and will be taking it to our local animal shelter. I'm sure they have some chubby kids there:)

  • Great food for my diabetic dog

    By on

    Fat Dogs by Natural Balance is a great food for overweight dogs but it is also a great food for a diabetic dog. It's low in fat and has moderate carbohydrates. My dog has been eating this for a month and her sugars have been steady. She did not like the dry prescription food by Hills Diet and had eaten Natural Balance most of her life. This was the perfect food for my pup.

  • He likes it!

    By on

    Like some of the other dog parents who wrote reviews, my 10 year old shepherd setter mix has diabetes and has suffered a pancreatic flare up. This food is really keeping him stable and he actually likes it! I'm so relieved and happy to have found this Fat Dogs non prescription food for him. Thanks Natural Balance and Chewy.

  • Good Food For Overweight Dogs

    By on

    I'm very happy with this food for my dogs. I can feel comfortable giving them it without cutting back on the portion size. We previously cut back on the portion size & she went out ate her leaving. I also like that we don't have to make trips to the pet store now that we have it delivered to our home by Chewy.

  • New Chewy Convert

    By on

    So glad I pulled the trigger on using Chewy! My dogs food arrives right to my door and for less money than me buying it in a traditional store. This food was recommended by my vet and my dogs love it. So far both of them appear to be losing weight and I know they love the taste. Its a win/win all around.

  • He Eats It!

    By on

    Our VERY picky, slightly tubby Golden Retriever certainly enjoys this food! We started by offering a blend of his usual NB Sweet Potato & Chicken with NB Fat Dog. We do continue to add a vitamin, skin & coat supplement to his food. He is doing quite well...and is on his way to being quite the buff pup!
