Consistency is Key for #PerfectWeight

This post is sponsored by Hill’s. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Hill’s® Science Diet® Perfect Weight 10 Week Turnaround, but  Daily Dog Tag only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc. is not responsible for the content of this article.

More than 50 % of pets are overweight, which can lead to health problems, limit their ability to enjoy play time and walks, and even shorten their life expectancy.   I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that consistency is key to helping overweight pets get healthy.  When we adopted Theo nearly two years ago, he was obese.  Thanks to careful monitoring of his diet and exercise, he’s a much healthier weight.

While Theo needed one of Hill’s® Science Diet® prescription foods and our vet’s supervision, 70% of pets lose weight successfully with Hill’s® Science Diet® Perfect Weight in ten weeks.

Probably the most significant thing you can do to help your dog lose or maintain weight is to feed him a nutritionally balanced food.  It is important to measure his food each and every time.  To determine the proper amount of food, refer to the food’s label as a starting guide.  (If you change food, be sure to check the label of the new food and/or check with your vet.)

Hill’s Science Diet is available for Small and Toy Breeds as well as a formula for larger dogs.  It offers:

  •     Breakthrough blend of natural ingredients 
  •     Healthy weight adds to quality of life and life expectancy

Exercise and playtime is beneficial both for mental and physical health.  Make it a priority for your pets and help strengthen your bond.  Use puzzle toys, games and exercise to help keep your dog fit.

As mentioned in a previous post, establishing a routine is a critical part of helping your dog lose weight.  This calendar provides an excellent way to monitor your dog’s weight loss and a way to hold yourself accountable.

Focus: Annie and Murray

I don’t know how Boston Terriers pack so much personality and attitude into relatively compact bodies, but they are impossible to ignore. They look ready for a black tie event one moment, completely comical the next, and then instantly cuddly. Hannele Lahti, a Dog Photographer, captured so many perfect moments with her two Boston Terriers.

The male is named Murray and we adopted him when he was 9, he’s now 14. The female is Annie, she was our first dog and we adopted her when she was about a year old.  She will be 9 this spring. “
