    Doggy Diet

    By on

    I rescued my special needs dog in April, she was 11 pounds. Now six months later, she is 14. She is low activity, my vet strongly suggested weight loss food, as she has disc disease and decreased ambulation. So I introduced this 3 weeks ago. I am still mixing it with her previous food, half and half, as I had so much of that left. I can tell she doesnt love it, but she slowly accepted it. Next I will give a higher percentage. I havent yet weighed her, but Im sure she has lost some weight, between this new food and less old food. So I will try to stick with this and hopefully see positive results.

    Another great experience

    By on

    I am so happy with chewy. I didnt have to go anywhere to get it and it was here in just a few days. I had gotten my Maltese the weight management food from petsmart but had to take it back. It smelled so much like medicine and she was NOT going to eat it. When we got the food from chewy, she wanted to eat and eat. I kept trying to give here her fav toothpaste, not interested, only in the food. I am so thrilled as I am looking forward to this helping my baby get this weight off. Thank you Chewy for being here for us.

    By on

    there are three little dogs here that are on this formula, and they love it! I run a rescue for small dogs, most come to me needing to gain weight, but a few come in chubby, and this is the best product for them.

    Good stuff

    By on

    My corgis, Zelda and Loki, both have to be on this food per their veterinarian. They love it, so that's fine by me! It's much less expensive auto-shipping it from vs going to the vet every two weeks to pick up a bag.

    Good product for our two dogs

    By on

    Have two small dogs with weight control issues. With more exercise and controlled diet, we now have their weight back to where it should be. Ordering from Chewy saves some money and simplifies the purchase.

    The dog definitely likes it.

    By on

    The food is fine, but it took forever to get here. I thought it was supposed to get here in 2 - 3 days, but took at least a week. I had to buy more food for Lola, waiting for it to arrive. I'll have to reconsider ordering from Chewy again.

    My Bichon Loves It

    By on

    My dog is 6 and very picky with food. I have always bought her the regular weight management before the vet prescription brand. She immediately loved it. It seems lighter than her former food and I don't have to entice her all the time with adding something else on it.
