Inspirational Dog Weight Loss Story: Bear

Bear went from almost 150 pounds to less than 100! Watch the inspirational dog weight loss story above. When Bear was at his highest weight, he couldn’t take care of himself as he should have been able to. It was difficult for him to walk and he was too big for his owner’s to manage, too. It was detrimental to their relationship, but they were able to find help from dog weight loss experts before it was too late. Science Diet Metabolic Formula is an easy and effective way to promote dog weight loss in 60 days and has been shown to be 88% effective in studies.

Tips To Promote A Healthy Weight In Dogs And Cats

1. Exercise – Take your dogs and cats for walks often. Play with them. Their bodies need exercise just like yours does.
2. Proper Amounts Of Food – Not all dogs and cats need the same amount of food, so be sure to read labels and feed the correct amount for your pet.
3. Don’t Feed Human Food – After all, you wouldn’t eat dog food or cat food, would you? There are some select human foods that dogs and cats can have. If you feel that you must feel your dog or cat human food, make sure you research them carefully before you give them to your pet.
4. Plenty Of Water – Just like humans, animals need plenty of water so they can have lots of energy to run and play without getting overheated. Make sure they always have plenty of clean, fresh water.
5. Proper Types Of Food – Make sure that your dog or cat is eating the best quality food possible, such as Science Diet Metabolic Formula.

How Metabolic Formula Can Promote Dog Weight Loss

  • While eating Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution, an overweight animal’s metabolism changes to act more like that of a lean animal.
  • Even after weight loss is achieved, the highly efficient energy metabolism profile is maintained.
  • Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution provides clinically proven nutrition that
    naturally activates metabolism to burn calories and regulate appetite.
  • Your pet’s quality of life and relationship with your family is impacted because that extra weight can reduce
    play time, impact mobility and affect the lifelong general health of your dog.
  • As the pet parent said, “I gained a friend.” When our pets feel good, it’s like getting back our old friend.

    I am glad that my dogs and cats are in healthy weight categories. Since Puppy Mister and Daisy Baby are so small to begin with, a weight gain would be pretty noticeable on either of them. Our cat, Lyric, loves our dogs and hasn’t been featured in a post in a while. She wants your pets to be healthy, too, so we thought we would share some pictures of her with you. 🙂

    1. I can’t have my own kitties because I am wicked allergic, but I will pass this on to my lucky cat friends 🙂

    2. When I take Kingers to the Vet in May – I am seriously going to talk about weight loss for him.

    3. I need this for my tubby beagle and my SIL hefty pup!

    4. Great tips and suggestions. My pets are pretty healthy weight wise and usually we can adjust things by how much their eating (my kids like to overfeed the pets). But, this is great if a simple food amount adjustment doesn’t do it.

    5. Feeding human food is definitely a no no but sometimes because your pet just begs for it, you can’t help it. It’s like a child asking for a toy. Great tips here for sure!

    6. My brother just adopted an extremely overweight English Bulldog. I will have to pass these tips along to him.

    10. It’s so tempting to keep giving your pet treats and table food to show them how much you love them but it’s so unhealthy for them. These are great tips.

    11. Luckily our cats are at a healthy weight. But my dad is always worried about his house dog becoming overweight. I will share these tips with him.

    12. It is so hard to not give our pets extra treats just because we love them. It’s really hard to help them lose weight but it really makes a difference in their overall health. Glad to see your pets are in the healthy weight categories!

    13. I try not to feed my pooch human food but she is such a piggie and runs to catch every scrap and Cheerio the kids drop. I do have her on a set amount of food now, and I think she lost 2lbs.

    14. Awww, your kitties are so cute! Definitely important to take care of pets’ health.

    15. This is the first time in my life that I haven’t had a pet, but I do know the importance of a healthy diet and lots of exercise. Pets get overweight sooo easily!

    16. It is important to pay attention to the quality and health benefits of the food we give our pets like we pay attention to the food we eat ourselves.

        Fortunately, my dogs are just too little to get anything from the garbage can! Not sure how to deal with that particular situation, lol.

    19. Ha, ha, ha… I am passing this onto my FIL… he took over my dog and since then that poor doggie has gained like 20 pounds… and he is a Min Pin… 20 pounds is a lot. UGH… Thanks for the tips
