What is SPECIFIC Canine Special Care Weight Reduction wet food?

 

SPECIFIC Weight Reduction is a complete and balanced wet food for dogs that are needing to lose weight. It contains high levels of Omega-3 fish oils to promote healthy coat, skin and joints.

 

Designed to allow dogs to lose weight without leaving them still feeling hungry, this diet is low in fat and calories, but high in fibre and protein – this means that the dog’s appetite is satisfied by full portion sizes, while still helping them lose weight.

 

SPECIFIC Weight Reduction is high in protein to maintain muscle mass. This increases weight loss as the loss then comes from fat rather than lean muscle mass. With added L-carnitine, a fat burning amino acid, to further aid in weight loss.

 

SPECIFIC Weight Reduction is suitable for diabetic dogs due to the use of starch and high level of fibre for slow glucose release. The high fibre content also makes this diet suitable for dogs with constipation.

Steps to ideal bodyweight

 

Weight check:  Get your dog's body condition checked and weighed.

 

Planning:  Work with your vet to decide what is the target weight. Choose a suitable food for your dog's needs, and then calculate the daily feeding amount.

 

Implement the feeding:  It’s important that you measure out the food so, if you need to you can easily and accurately adjust it.

 

Regularly weigh your dog:  A simple way to do this is weigh yourself, then weigh yourself while holding your dog then subtract the two numbers. If you have a larger breed or are unable to carry the dog, it is advised to get your dog to sit on some bathroom scales, or pop into your vets to use the scales in the waiting room!

 

Be patient – It’s not going to happen overnight but if you stick with it your dog will reach their target weight, and it will all be worth it with a happier healthy dog.

 

Maintain weight:  Once you have reached target weight you need to make sure they stay there by choosing a suitable food for your dog's needs.

 

Remember: If your dog is on a diet, be careful not to spoil the good work with treats (especially table scraps), and make sure everyone knows what you are doing!
