The Philly Dog Blog", and his Mom took part in the #Hill's® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution weight loss trial. Dash was a husky 12 pounds at one time in his life. Now, while that sounds pretty small, when compared to what his ideal weight (8 lbs) should be for his size, Dash was extremely an overweight dog with his little body under great stress from it. His Mom Rebecca began noticing he was overweight about 3 years ago, and said that at times during his heaviest, he actually waddled when he walked. Dash definitely needed some help to get more 'dash' in his step.
But before we talk about his successful weight loss with #Hills Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution pet food, let's learn a bit more about Dash. I want to share what his Mom says about how they met:
"I got Dash from a breeder. When I arrived, Dash came running up to me. When I picked him up he literally wrapped his paws around my neck. Sold! He was 2 years old at the time and she had been
showing him (I think she stopped because he wasn’t winning). But he was a total winner in my eyes!"
Dash's name fits him well, for he loves to play fetch with his orange ball (and only his orange ball), play tug of war and chase squirrels. His mom loves playing fetch with him as well. She cherishes their walks together, and cuddle time is always a favorite for them. Of course, it's a favorite for me and my Mommy too!
When asked about Dash's quality of life with the extra weight he carried about, Rebecca said that Dash's collapsing trachea had gotten a lot worse and his luxating patellas (knee joints) popped out a lot more often, which can be painful. The excess weight had an effect on activity as well. He couldn't play fetch for as long as he used to, he didn't want to go for walks, and he slept more.
The weight started slowly coming off.
At last weigh in, he only had one more pound to lose before reaching his ideal weight of 8 pounds. Isn't that fantastic?
While eating Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution, an obese pet’s metabolism changes to act more like that of a lean pet.
Rebecca says she's extremely pleased with the success of the Hill's Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution pet food. Obviously Dash is enjoying having more pep in his step too! His Mom says he is acting more like a puppy again and has much more stamina. She is so happy that Dash is playing fetch again and that he enjoys walks much more.
Let's watch this video of Dash as he 'dashes' to get his favorite orange ball.
