Did you know that if your pet is overweight, it could result in a shorter life for her?
And if she’s overweight, it makes the life she’s living even harder. That extra weight takes its toll on her bones, joints, and organs. She has less energy, which means she’s less active, which leads to even more weight gain. It might be hard for her to breathe, and her weight issues could lead to illnesses like Diabetes and high blood pressure.
Just like with us humans, living in an overweight body can take away the quality of life for your pet.
Having an overweight pet can take a toll on a family, too. The cost of additional vet bills, the time spent taking care of a sick or debilitated pet, even the loss of a once active relationship with the pet can be tough to endure. Sometimes the family doesn’t know what to do, like in Bear’s case. Take a look at this short video:
Bear’s family had no clue what to do with their overweight and disabled dog. They were opting for euthanasia because they didn’t realize there were options, and their story isn’t unusual. A lot of pet parents have no idea how to help their overweight furry companions, and sadly, sometimes they resort to drastic measures thinking they have no other choice.
But thanks to Hill’s, being overweight doesn’t have to be a death sentence for your pet. In fact, Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution is proven to work in real homes with real pets under real world conditions. In a recent at-home study, 88% of pets lost weight in two months at home – and they didn’t have to drastically change their lifestyle.
When your pet eats Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution, her metabolism changes to behave more like that of an animal at its proper weight. And even after she reaches her goal weight, Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution helps her stay there, providing clinically proven nutrition that naturally activates metabolism to burn calories and regulate appetite.
So if you could change your pet’s life without changing your lifestyle, if you could give her a good quality of life and reclaim your fun, active relationship with her, would you do it today?
