Questions & Answers

35 Customer Questions

Are the bite size small? I buy the small breed bite size.
Answer by ChewyAug 10, 2017
The kibble in this product is the size of a dime, and not considered a small bite formula.

What is the percentage of carbs? Also max fat amount.
Answer by ChewyMay 15, 2018
The formula has approximately 48.5% of carbohydrate content. AAFCO regulations do not require for manufacturers to test for maximum fat content.

is this ok to feed long-term?
Answer by ChewySep 09, 2018
This food can be fed for both weight loss and weight maintenance once your dog has reached an ideal weight.

For weight loss do I go by my current dogs weight or the target weight to decide how much to feed a day?
Answer by ChewyApr 25, 2019
The feeding chart will be broken down into 2 sections; "Daily Feeding for Weight Reduction" and "Daily Feeding for Weight Maintenance". If you have a pet who needs to lose weight, you'll want to reference the Weight Reduction section until they get to their target weight, then you may reference the Maintenance section. These are general guidelines that may be adjusted for your individual pets needs.

Low fat rx substitute

My dog was prescribed a low fat prescription dog food due to chronic pancreatitis, after getting that under control I looked for more economical substitutes and this was a pretty close match to the caloric content! And she loves it. I should admit that i add half a packet of Ceasars wet food as a topper, but that was something I had to start doing for the previous prescribed dog food that she stopped eating. We couldn't be happier now, and her poop looks the best it ever has in her 13 years!

Works Well

I use to call my dachshund "my little tootsie roll" cause she was round all over. Well my vet said it was cute but she really needed to loose at least 8lbs. I found this brand and read all reviews and benefits that came with this food. Had no problem switching brands and 3 months later she is at her size weight. I have made this brand the only food I give my other dogs so they can maintain their weight as well. Chewy offers auto ship and that makes it easy to have on hand.

Fat Dog, Fat Yum!

Our vet recommended this Fat Dog food as an alternative food to help our lil baby lose weight. So far it’s helped her lose a couple of pounds. She likes the flavor and eats every morsel.

Be Prepared for Poop

I have a young Rhodesian Ridgeback mix who loves Natural Balance food and sometimes will consume more than she ought. I thought I'd give Fat Dogs a try and it turns out she does like this food as much as the others. Unfortunately, because of all the additional fiber, she began to poop 4 or 5 times a day. Now I mix this with the Natural Balance chicken and rice formula (1:1), and I'm happy to say she's pooping far less. So, should you decide on this food, be prepared with more poop bags!

Dry food for pick eater

My dog LOVES this food. I have tried at least 12 different dry foods and spent a small fortune, He would not eat any of it. I found this and the reviews said picky eaters would like it. They Do! Will continue to feed this to my big guy. I have a 96 lb GSD. I highly recommend it.

Named for their clientele!

I adopted a 54# Corgi and this has helped get the weight off for sure. Smells close to the regular NB salmon or chicken my other dog is on. Helped improve weight, coat, digestion, and energy. I like that they pull no punches on the name too. Easy to find it among all the varieties.

Not for my Bubba

The added fiber is making my Bubba have to poop more often. It’s making him uncomfortable because where he went 2-3 times a day now it’s 5-7 times a day and in the middle of the night. We are switching back to his original food.

Not Sure If It's Having a Positive Impact

I bought this to help my pup shed a few pounds after the vet gave me a stern talking to. I started looking into kibble that would help her lose a bit of weight. I'll preface this by saying that it hasn't been long enough for me to come to the conclusion that it actually helps dogs lose weight, I've only been giving her this food for around 2 almost 3 weeks, but I have noticed various things that do concern me a bit. First of all she's eating much more than she usually does (she's always been the type to eat less than the recommended amount), and at first I thought that it might be because we finally found a food that she absolutely loves but as the days went by we started thinking it might actually be because she's not receiving enough nutrients from the food, which ties in to the following reason. Before putting her on this food she would poop 2 maybe 3 times a day, now with this food she's pooping 5-6 times and the amount each time is a pretty hefty amount which makes me suspect that this food is mostly filler (at least thats what some googling has shown). Another thing that this food has caused her to increase her water intake. Overall this food has me worried, I'm not sure if this is supposed to be occurring since this is my first time buying a diet food for my pup.

Review of Chewy, their service and products

I have found shopping at Chewy for my pets a most rewarding experience. They are always, and I mean ALWAYS, available. They are knowledgable about the products and they are always pleasant. If something isn't quite right, they simply send me a replacement. They have just about everything I need for my dogs, cats and birds. They know how to get it right. It was hard for me to find Fat Dogs and Chewy had it available. They make owning a pet very convenient.
