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.

Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution pet food is virtually guilt free! No more cutting back on food or treats. Not only do they have wet & dry food, but they also have...wait for it....TREATS! Can you imagine? Guilt-free treats for your dog or cat. You no longer have to feel like you are withholding love...instead you are redefining love with a pet food that actually changes the metabolism of your pet to help them lose weight. As a matter of fact, 88% of pets that tried the Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution food for 60 days lost weight! They ate good, had special treats and still lost the weight. Now THAT is my idea of showing the love!

Does This Dress Make Me Look Fat? New Metabolic Pet Food & a GIVEAWAY by #HillsPet

"Mommy, does this dress make me look fat?" I know, it's not something you expect your pet to ask you. To be honest, I've never thought about my weight before...most pets don't. In fact, we don't worry about our weight at all! Yet there is a growing epidemic of overweight pets in the U.S.:  53% of dogs and 55% of cats are overweight. Many pet parents don't realize their pet is carrying extra pounds. Mommy certainly didn't realize I was about 2 pounds over my ideal weight a few years ago. She was so unhappily surprised that I weighed 14 pounds when I should only weigh 11-12 pounds. It can happen to anyone.

Several factors can contribute to weight issues. Plus, I must admit, pets love food. You know how pets are. We follow our nose, and are content to eat anything and everything we can get our paws on. (I'm just being honest here.) If we hear any type of food sounds, we come running. Whether it's our supper time or yours, we're close on your heels, asking to take part. Pets love to eat. And we love giving you adorable little looks to get you to give us a treat, a bite, or a nibble of food. We are quite persuasive.

Pets never think about things like eating proper proportions, being overweight, or watching our diet, so pets must rely on pet parents to manage what we eat for us.
It can be tough though, because no one wants to feel like they’re depriving their dog or cat of food – even when it's to help them maintain or lose weight. Controlling portions or withholding treats isn't fun. But extra weight adds up quickly for a pet, causing health issues, just as it can for humans.
Ask yourself and then ask your vet, "Is my pet at their ideal weight? Does my pet need to lose a few pounds to get to an optimum weight for long term health and well being?" It's an important topic to discuss with your vet, just as Mommy did when I had to lose a little weight.
To make pet weight loss easier, my friends at Hills Pet have developed a new weight management food called Hill's® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution dog and cat food, available only through your veterinarian. Their special formula food works by activating metabolism to regulate appetite and burn fat. In real life, normal conditions, 88% of dogs and cats that participated in our feeding trial lost weight without having to greatly change their life style.
Hill's® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution includes a complete portfolio of dry food, canned food and treats designed to work together for easy, flexible weight loss success without deprivation, making it much easier for pet owners to keep pets on the program and comply with their vet’s recommendation. Pets feel full and satisfied and still lose weight! Read some of the Metabolic pet food reviews to see what people are saying. Just type the word "metabolic" in the product search bar.
Remember, with this formula, you change what your pet eats, not how your pet eats.
