Dashing His Way to Fitness with #HillsPet - Meet Dash from "The Philly Dog" Blog

Dog weight loss can be a difficult goal to achieve. You've seen me blog about it before, sharing my own past experience with extra weight, and the challenges that come with trying to help your pet lose weight. Many pet owners love giving extra food and treats to their beloved pets to show how much they love them. But when the pet gains extra pounds, it can put a real stress on their bodies, and make it hard for them to live an active, healthy life. So trying to force the weight loss by withholding food and treats, and trying to increase exercise is not always ideal. Today I want to share with you a real life doggie weight loss success story, all thanks to my friends at #HillsPet!
Dash, an adorable 9 year old male Yorkshire Terrier from "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.
In the past, Rebecca would just try withholding treats and food to try to shed the pounds off Dash. As you can see in this video, Dash didn't want to dash much at all. He'd just meander through the yard instead.
Mom Rebecca said that this is her first time using a diet product for her boy. What makes Hill's® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution so special is that it activates your pet's metabolism to regulate appetite and burn fat. It wasn't long before things started changing once Dash was on the Hill's Metabolic Weight Solution formula.
Dash had been used to a raw food diet, so initially he had a tough time switching to a dry kibble and treats style of food. He eats the food, but does so reluctantly and the treats take some extra cajoling for him to eat them. However his Mom still has piece of mind knowing she doesn't have to worry so much about what exactly he can and cannot eat.
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.

The Joy of Showing Your Love - Redefining Love with #HillsPet


Pixel Blue Eyes smiling big while laying on a bench at the beach
Hi friends! I'm live on location here on the beautiful coral sands of Florida's East side with a special report that I hope you will appreciate. It deals with two very important and joyful things...Food & Love!

Just like all pet parents, Mommy has this incredible need to make me feel loved, and she shows me love every single day of my life. It is a constant that comes in so many forms and I cherish each one. Sometimes it's with hugs, sometimes with kisses, other times it's with a toy or a nice game of chase outside. In the past it has been with extra food and treats, whether it was my normal food or food from her plate. It is so easy to express love with food. Up to a point it can be good, but when I was a couple of pounds over my ideal weight a few years ago, Mommy had to curb her desire to give me as many treats as she would have liked, and as much as I wanted her to. Of course, a little treat here or there is good in moderation, but they can add up rather quickly. Extra food and treats that say "I love you" can often lead to excess weight that could over time lead to health problems in your pet. I know first hand that this is true.

Animals are often ruled by their stomach, so for us, any excuse is a good excuse for treats, extra food, a lick of your spoon or a piece of french fry from your fast food stop. We can't help it. If we had our way, each of us would have free reign of your refrigerator every single hour of the day.

SHOW ME THE TREATS...UM, I MEAN LOVE MOMMY!!!
The good news is, our love for you runs much deeper than our stomachs, and of course your love is precious and never ending, and we know it. So we trust you to do what is right for us. If you see that your pet is looking a little extra stout, it can be hard to curb that desire to give us extra treats, especially when we give you those sad puppy dog eyes or a soft little "Meow" that is just begging for a little something extra. But cat and dog weight loss can be hard to attain.
Food is Love with Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution Food
My friends at #Hill'sPet know how difficult it can be to cut back on our treats, especially when we have been a good girl or boy. It might even feel like you are withholding love. With Hill's® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution, it’s not about withholding love, it's about redefining love. Every pet parent wants their pets to live as long and as healthy a life as possible, and keeping your pet at a healthy weight is instrumental in helping live a long healthy life with you. Hill's doesn't want you to feel like you are withholding love to keep your pet's weight in check, they want you to be able to feed a better weight loss pet food that will allow you to keep giving your pet all the love you ever have as you feed them a food specially made to help them lose weight without holding back on the treats and food.

The Joy of Healthy Weight & Healthy Relationships - #HillsPet Metabolic Weight Loss

I love snacking! I think any excuse is a good excuse for a little snack. I even patrol the dining room table area at times in case a magical snack appears for me to delve into. That's just how I roll. But, if Mommy gave into my requests for snacks every time I asked, begged or gave her the sad eyes for one, I know I'd weigh more than I should. Whether you are a animal or a human, carrying around a lot of extra weight can take it's toll on your everyday life. Pets especially have a hard time when they are overweight. It can really weigh a pet down, no pun intended, because one pound on us can be like 10-20 pounds on a human. Think about it...if a dog's ideal weight was 10 pounds, but they actually weighed 12 pounds, that would be the same as a 100 lb person carrying around an extra 20 pounds. That is a lot of extra weight that is putting pressure on a pet's joints, heart, and other important organs. In many cases, a pet's quality of life and relationship with their family can be impacted because that extra weight can reduce play time, impact mobility and affect the lifelong general health of your dog or cat.
My friends at Hill's have created a fantastic and delicious new line of prescription pet food & treats that helps combat additional weight in dogs and cats. Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution pet food actually helps an overweight animal's metabolism change to act more like that of a lean animal. And even after weight loss is achieved with this new Metabolic pet food, the highly efficient change in metabolism is maintained.
Just talking about all this wonderful food makes me hungry, especially since they have dry dog food, wet dog food AND treats. I could talk about the benefits of Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution pet food all day long, but why don't I share a very important video about Bear, a handsome German Shepherd dog whose life was changed by Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution dog food. While you watch it, think about your own pets....could they benefit from this new food?

As the gentleman in the video said, he got his friend back again. Being at a healthier weight enabled Bear to play more, interact more and enjoy life a whole lot more. That's what we want for all our loved ones, don't we? Gracie is another fantastic success story. She is one of the 88% of pets that lost weight in a healthy way by eating Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution for dogs. Just look at these before and after photos of Gracie! Her weight loss diet for dogs didn't feel like a diet at all to her. She had wet and dry food, as well as yummy treats. Go Gracie!!

Remember, Hill's Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution dog and cat food works fast, with many getting to an ideal weight in just 60 days. With an 88% success rate, it's well worth a try! Diet and exercise go hand in paw to help keep us at a healthy weight too. Walking is one of the very best exercises in my humble opinion, and I LOVE to go for walks! Of course I love to run too. PetMD shares 10 simple ways to help your pet get to an ideal weight, which will help make them feel like a puppy again, full of energy and playfulness.
The relationship that pets share with their pet parents is so important, so always stay active with them. We long to be with you, and we need that playful interaction with you. We also need for you to be wise in how and what we eat. We depend on you. Being at a healthy weight will help us pets be able to keep that relationship fresh and new, and will help us stay active longer.
But don't just take my word for it...you can read some reviews about Hill's Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution on their Facebook page. Just enter the term "Metabolic" to read reviews specific to this new food.
