Happy Labor Day Everyone!

Sometimes it can be tough when you need to slim down. However, when it's your dog, that's another story. They look at you with those eyes and make it very hard to say no when you are eating people food. Other dogs are so food motivated, it becomes a way of life to use food as a training method. Then again, some breeds are predisposed to having a slow metabolism.

Keeping Cookie's weight down is becoming more challenging as she is getting older. She still is active, but is getting more limited in what she can do these days.

Help Is Here!

Now, there's a special program by Purina called Purina Pet Slimdown. This is a unique program that is only available through a prescription by your veterinarian. There are different varieties and with lifestyles being so fast-paced, sometimes it helps to have a structured dietary plan instead of going solo.

The one downside is that the food sold will be on the pricey side. However, with veterinary costs skyrocketing for treatment against diabetes and other health related issues, prevention may be the best solution.

Let's Discuss!

Have you used a specialized diet for your dog or done it the old-fashioned way?
