My Friend Chuy's Pet Weight Loss Success Story #HillsPet

Do I look fat in this picture?
You guys all know how devastated I was to find out that I, Cinnamon, needed to lose 4 -5 pounds. And to top it off, I found this out during a dental appointment!

My goal weight is 50 pounds. I know I can lose the weight. Between you and me, the culprit is the people food that my owner gave to me. She's stopped that now. That should do the trick. 

But in case it doesn't, I have some other ideas. I may have to "walk the talk" and sign on to an effective weight loss plan like Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution. I have written about it but never thought I'd be faced with the need to lose weight.
Here's poor Chuy when he got weighed and found out
he was over-weight. Thanks to his owner for sharing

I started reading more about weight loss and I found out about Chuy the Chihuahua who was upset about being declared "overweight" like I was.

It was last January that Chuy's vet officially declared Chuy to be overweight. His owner was devastated. She knew he was looking a little chunky but actually hearing that from a professional made it sting. He weighed in at 11.5 lbs and the vet wanted him down to 8.5 lbs so little Chuy needed to lose three pounds... that's a lot for a little guy.

Here's the Hill's TREATS!
Imagine losing weight while getting some treats.
It's part of the plan!
Chuy's owner was determined to help him get back on track to a healthy lifestyle and has been writing about Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution and reporting on his progress.

It's exciting to read about Chuy. Despite having some back problems, he is progressing on his weight loss plan. He's now down to 10 pounds. So he's lost about 10% of his body weight. That's really an accomplishment for such a cute little guy. It's really cool. He's getting his waistline back! Go Chuy!

You might want to read more about Chuy. Chuy and his owner came up with Five Tips for Dog Weight Loss. I thought it was a good article. They do point out that weight loss is not so easy. But it is much easier with the right food!

Hill’s®Prescription Diet® Canine Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution is a great alternative for chubby pets and their worried owners. If you want to have a good life and a good relationship with your owner both of you should read the information on Hill’s MetabolicAdvanced Weight Solution Website.

Here's Chuy enjoying his food! Thanks to his owner for sharing
