As with humans, obesity is a growing issue for our pets. A survey conducted in the US in 2011 found that over half of all dogs and cats are currently overweight or obese. Although they may look cute and cuddly, overweight pets are at risk of many potential health problems and are likely to have reduced lifespans.
Health Problems Associated with Obesity in Pets:
If you are concerned about your pets weight, ask your veterinarian for advice. They can calculate your pets ideal weight and work with you to formulate a feeding program to help them successfully lose weight and keep it off for life.
Overweight and obese pets use energy differently to their lean counterparts. When calories are restricted, their brain slows down their metabolic rate to conserve energy and defend its fat stores. This is an evolutionary response that is designed to prevent loss of fat during times of starvation. This response means that weight loss by calorie reduction alone can be very difficult to achieve!
Metabolic uses a synergistic blend of ingredients to boost the metabolism of obese and overweight pets, so that it acts more like that of a lean animal. This results in increased rates of fat loss, while muscle mass is spared. Due to the alteration in their metabolism and its unique fibre blend from real fruit and vegetables, pets that are fed Metabolic for weight loss are less likely to feel hungry between meals. Feeling full reduces begging and food stealing behaviour, keeping your pet on track with their weight loss program. Metabolic works on real pets in real homes and has been proven to reduce body weight by up to 29% over a 2 month period. Once your pet loses weight, Metabolic is designed to keep it off for life. It contains powerful antioxidants to support vitality and health, and is designed to be fed long term maintain your pets weight loss.
