Did the Vet Say Your Pet Needs to Lose Weight? Check out #HillsPet Metabolic Diet ($70 Giveaway Too!)

Here I am playing hard to keep slim and trim
Now, I Cinnamon, don't want to lose weight. It might mean giving up TREATS, right? Well, maybe not. I've been researching a fairly new dog weight loss product that will be sure to perk up the ears of my pleasantly plump friends. (And if I don't quit sleeping so much I might need to lose weight too!)

I see them at the dog park. I see them on Facebook. These are the dogs and cats that have some extra weight. Owners think they are happy. But the pets tell me, secretly, that they aren't. They want to run and play with ease. They want to feel better. So how can that be done without sacrificing FOOD and TREATS?

Here's a cute video that features a pleasantly plump cat (the type that would not be able to out-run me, Cinnamon).

I heard that in the U.S., 53% of dogs and 55% of cats are now overweight. How did this happen? I'll bet it's the people that caused this because we animals love to be lean. (But we also like to beg for extra food and treats) You might be in denial. You might say "I'm not overweight... I just love those treats!" Well, here's how your owner can help you figure it out.

I got this trick from the people at Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution.

To determine  if your pet is the correct weight is right at your fingertips–literally.

Make a fist and feel your knuckles.

If your pet’s ribs feel like the knuckles of your clenched fist, then your pet is underweight.

Now relax your hand. Now with your hand open, feel the knuckles on the back of your open hand.

This is what your pet’s ribs should feel like if he’s the correct weight.

Flip over your hand and feel those same knuckles but on your palm. This is what your pet’s ribs will feel like if he’s overweight.

Oh Oh! What to do?
So did you find out you need to lose weight? Well, you're not alone. So what to do?
Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution may be your answer. I was amazed to find out that in a study 88 percent of pets on this diet lost weight in two months at home as well as 28 percent body fat loss in dogs in two months and 29 percent body fat loss in cats in two months.

Now these results are really good to hear because they were done in tests AT HOME... not in A LAB. That means that everything else was just as it usually is for these pets. You know, sometimes your owner sneaks you a bit of sandwich or a French fry from the Drive-Through (Yum!).  Things during the test were normal and all that changed was the food and treats these pets received. AND THEY LOST WEIGHT! Here's what pet owners have said about the program.

YES! You get TREATS!
Now you'll have to visit the Vet to get authorization. The vet will check for other illnesses and confirm the diet is right for you. 

With the diet you get the special Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution AND TREATS! Hear that? You don't have to give up treats! (In fact I know where the treat jar is at my Vet's office!)

Because this food affects your metabolism, rather than just making you cut back on your food, you'll feel better for sure. And, when I see you at the dog park, you'll probably outrun ME! 

And when you get to your goal weight, you can continue on the food as maintenance. The program and your Vet will tell you how.

  1. Great post! Thanks for getting the word out. I don't think many realize their pets are unhealthy. they do look cute when they're plump. I like the the metabolic formula lets you keep giving treats!


Thanks for your comment. Love, Cinnamon
