In case you missed it, make sure to check out our last post sponsored by Hill’s Science Diet where we talked about establishing habits and routines in order to maintain weight and overall health for your pet.
Did you know that 50% of pets are technically overweight? Surprising, huh?
The objective of the 10 Week Turnaround campaign (#PerfectWeight) is to educate parents about the importance of healthy weight for their pets.
Today we are going to share the story of a friend of ours who took the challenge and is well on her way to her perfect weight after 10 weeks of eating Hill’s Diet’s Perfect Weight formula.
Zero already lost 6 pounds from her 10 weeks, well on her way to her goal of 20 pounds of weight loss! Check out the rest of her story here.
The struggle is real for overweight pets:
We told you in a previous post about how Gilligan has realized some pretty great weight loss himself, going from a maximum of 15 pounds down to just 12.9 pounds! That said, 12.9 was in fact a little too slim, so he has seen some increased treats since then, and is now starting to look just right for the spring, and beyond. Remember:
- Starting is the hardest part of a new routine. Be strong!
- Be consistent, and stick with your routine!
- Maintain feeding times, on time, and keep exercise consistent.
- Monitor your pet’s weight against the amount of food you feed for meals and treats. Make small adjustments if you see the weight moving in a direction that you’re not going for. Use a measuring cup for feeding so you can keep portions under control.
