Weight control is not only important for humans. It’s important for all people. And as we discussed in a book review during a prior post, dogs can be people too!
Did you know that 50% of pets are technically overweight? Oh dear!
The objective of the 10 Week Turnaround campaign (#PerfectWeight) is to educate parents about the importance of healthy weight for their pets. Hopefully what we share with you here will help you make a more informed decision about your pet’s nutrition.
It’s been a tough winter, and Gilligan sure is glad to be back out as the thaw is setting in! Staying fit is a very important part of Gilly’s lifestyle, especially because of all the risks associated with being overweight that specifically face the Dachshund breed.
Hill’s understands the importance of proper nutrition. They will tell you how important it is to be mindful of the impact of even your treat choices on your dog’s overall health, as is demonstrated by the below chart from their Treat Translator page.
When you consider the fact that Gilligan’s owners are more than ten times his size by body weight, this seems less far-fetched (feeding him 1oz of cheese is the equivalent of his Papa eating well over half a pound!).
We’ve shared with you that Gilligan’s snack of choice these days is frozen broccoli. We would highly recommend it.
Hill’s Science Diet Perfect Weight dog food now comes in a new variety that’s specially formulated to achieve and maintain a healthy weight and improve quality of life in small and toy breed dogs (which make up 40% of the dog population). It features prebiotic fibers for gentle digestion and 100% balanced nutrition.
70% of dogs and cats who used Science Diet Perfect Weight lost weight within 10 weeks!
From their handsome choice of cover model, we’re certain they understand the importance of weight control for pups like our hero Gilligan. 😉
