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.

  • Really worked!

    By on

    I got my mother in laws senior Golden/Collie when she went to a nursing home. Poor guy was 125 when he should've been 85. Between all the extra weight & arthritis, he could barely get up & couldn't even walk a block. By feeding this food with no salt green beans or sweet potatoes & only giving the tiniest treats (5 cal each!) he dropped 25 lbs in just 4 months & is now walking 10-12 blocks a day. He's like a new dog & boy was the vet surprised!

  • Glad this product was recommended to us.

    By on

    We have 3 rescue dogs--2 bearded collies and a little Boston Terrier mix who is very food-motivated. We were feeding all 3 the Natural Balance Vegetarian dry food, and they all love it. Because our little terrier was a little overweight, we reduced her food and added salt free green beans. She always seemed hungry. So, we decided to try this food as recommended by our dog trainer. She is doing great on it. I've noticed she does have more bowel movements, but her stool looks normal. Of course, it's much easier to feed all 3 the same food. But since our little terrier is doing so well, we'll keep her on Fat Dogs and we'll look forward to seeing how much weight she's lost in the first month.

  • Switch foods gradually

    By on

    It's important to switch slowly from old food to this!! Gradually change over to this food. We add low sodium French style green beans to increase the volume of the meal without adding very many calories. Works like a charm. She's a 15 lb chihuahua mix that should weigh 9-10 lbs. She's been on this for about 3 weeks and we actually can see the difference.

  • Best Low Calorie Food

    By on

    This is the lowest calorie food I can find. Does not sacrifice the nutritional quantity or quality. Per 99 grams of food has at least 60 calories less than other "lite" varieties. My dog loves it and over two months has lost 5 lbs without always being hungry.

  • I guess she likes it

    By on

    Still weaning my dog off her other dog food, Giving her a little over 50% Fat Dog. She chooses when she wants to eat, balking at it a little. She's off table scraps so this is an adjustment! Going to order a bigger bag this week.
