Bali Enjoying the Outdoors

In the past couple of months, I have discussed about how statistics indicate that more than 50% pets are overweight and some of the ways we can establish a healthy routine for our own pets. Five extra pounds on a small dog is the equivalent of over 30 extra pounds on a human. Feeding your cat one potato chip is the equivalent of a human eating an entire chocolate bar or half of a hamburger. Giving a Dachshund an ounce of cheddar cheese is the equivalent of a human eating not one, but two and a half hamburgers! These are all startling facts to take into consideration. That is why it is crucial for us to take their health with the utmost care, compassion, and consideration since our pets are essentially part of us.

Losing weight can be challenging for pets much as it can be for us, thus managing their weight early on can help them avoid a host of diseases and ailments. If your pet is overweight or obese, the Hill’s Science Diet Adult Perfect Weight Formulas will help them achieve and maintain the perfect weight while improving their quality of life! Hill’s® Science Diet® Adult Perfect Weight Small & Toy Breed (available in bag sizes 4lbs and 15lbs), their newest product, is specifically for dogs that weigh 25 lbs and less. It is 100% precisely balanced nutrition and contains prebiotic fibers for gentle digestion. It’s available at your local vet or pet specialty store. It can also be purchased via Pet360.

Bali in the Springtime

In addition, Hill’s® Science Diet® introduced the Perfect Weight 10 Week Turnaround Challenge to help pets achieve their ideal weight. I didn’t participate since my Maltese, Bali, (shown in the pictures) is at his ideal weight. However, I did enjoy reading the success stories from pet owners who did participate, such as Posh on a Budget‘s dog, Hazel, whom went from 28 lbs. to 24 lbs. within 10 weeks. That may not sound significant to some, but that’s actually the equivalent of someone like you or me shedding 18 lbs.!

Note: The pictures shown in this post are not Hazel, but my own dog, Bali. 🙂

Help your pet battle the bulge! Between now and July 5th, enter now to have have a chance to win the bi-weekly prizes of a 10-week supply of Science Diet Perfect Weight for your dog or cat. The full terms and conditions can be found on the entry form.
