My vet recommended this food as a tool to help my two dogs lose weight. I had been feeding them Hills Science Diet Low Fat ID and the expense (and the smell) was getting to be too much. I always worry about changing to a different food, especially since I have a finicky eater (boy Maltese), but he absolutely LOVES this food! It has flat piece which seem easier to chew that the Hills and it has dried pieces of shredded chicken which he goes CRAZY for. I haven't weighed them yet, but my girl, (King Charles Cavalier) who needs to lose the most, appears to be feeling better, has so much more energy and is jumping on and off the couch again which tells me she feels lighter, at least. Can't recommend this enough!
The food is fair quality, however, for the price paid I would expect to see less powder in the food. I seem to notice this in the larger bags. I am on the fence as to whether I will continue feeding my almost 2 yr old female Frenchie this food. Secondly, she doesn't really like it. She will eat it but definitely doesn't rush to her bowl to enjoy.
My 2 year old German Shepherd had to drop some pounds. Too many treats during training!! We mix this half and half with ProPlan large breed dog food. He loves it. Amazing to us. He has lost some pounds after only 1 18 lb. bag. We plan to keep him on this to lose a few more pounds and then for weight management. It provides all the healthy ingredients we believe in feeding him. Our vet recommended Purina Pro Plan when he first saw our baby as a 8 week old puppy. We are extremely pleased with the brand.
I usually don’t write reviews, but had to on this one. My dog is 5 and is THE pickiest eater- he has NEVER eaten any dry kibble plain, and we have tried everything- from cheapie grocery store, to the most expensive premium foods, to ones touted as for “picky eaters.” Always had to add meat to it, add some water and heat it up. He basically needed a gourmet meal. All those meals added up and he got a little plump, so we decided to try a weight loss food & stumbled across this one. Reviews said their picky dogs ate it, but I’ve heard that before… he ate it plain right out of the gate and still gobbles it up a month later! Sometimes he picks out the chicken & eats the kibble later, but he never skips a meal. Skin & coat look GREAT- vet mentioned it at our last visit. Has already lost a couple of pounds. Could not recommend more!!!!
We have 3 chihuahuas and one is a bit chubby. They all get the same food and they all love it. I tried about 4 or 5 different weight managment kibble and this one they all love it.
My mini Aussie absolutely loves this food. He ate it immediately, first bowl, no hesitation. I have been feeding him this for about a month and he is doing great on it so far!
We got the information about the dog food from a friend. Our dog is overweight. On all of the dog food we have given him before ,we had to add some people food before he would eat it. He loves his new dog food and eats it right away. Looking forward to him losing weoght
I normally buy another brand name and happen to see this Purina weight control brand. Tried it and our dog loves it! As a matter of fact by the end of the day her food is gone (she would always leave some of the other brand). Also I noticed that she is losing some of her extra weight.
Our 7 year old dog started putting on weight. We tried adding more exercise and reducing the food amount, but to achieve weight loss we would have had to cut his food by more than half; our veterinarian did not recommend that. We started feeding weight management and he's already lost 1 1/2 lbs, plus he is able to eat his usual ration of 3 cups. He's happy with not eating a sample tasting, I'm happy he's losing slow and steady.
My other dog is on the same food but prescription. I couldn't keep the other dog out of it and it is pricy...this was my solution and it works great! He is happy with this food and doesn't try to steal the expensive food anymore.
