My dog Dawson has always been overweight mostly because my elderly mom would feed him her own food whenever we weren't looking! Lol. I now monitor Dawsons food intake and he has lost about 5 pounds and looking better. He's 10 years old and is a Chiweenie so those little legs need a slimmer body . Still a ways to go but this food is great and he eats it!
I’ve been feeding this to my dog for years and he loves it. He’s a Jack Russell mix, a very active 9 year old. The great thing about this food is it’s high fiber, so he poops easily and thoroughly. Before using this, the situation wasn’t so good. My neighbor’s dog sometimes stays with us and he’s fed a human-like food, which results in straining and drippy poops. After one day with just a tiny amount of this added to Drippy’s usual food and he’s a new dog. So much more frisky and playful. So don’t just look at this food like it’s just for weight loss.
I have been feeding my dog a limited protein food from another brand because she had soft stools and we thought it was from chicken. However over time she was gaining weight (too many treats contributed) but our Vet recommended her losing weight and recommended this brand as well as Purina and Royal Canine. I was familiar with Hill's Science Diet for a cat that needed a special diet so I tried them first and SUCCESS! Her stools are better than with the other foods we've tried (multiple) and she loves the taste. She's even lost a half a pound which for her size is right on track. I would highly recommend tryingn this product.
Have been using this food for my dog for the last year with good results. The last bag ordered however, as soon as I opened it and fed my dog, he became very sick to his stomach. Now feeding same food but in canned version and he is fine again. Makes me wonder if there is a contamination issue with the bag I was sent. Label on bag says: best before 12 2024 M2361142 SM 143. I wonder if any other dogs using this product batch have gotten sick. I will discard my bag.
