Portly to Playful is Possible with #HillsPet

Truffles is not just my pet. She is my best friend, and our relationship is one of the most important in my life. I would hope that all pet parents agree with that sentiment. Some of the happiest moments of my day are spent bonding with her through playtime. The sad fact is that overweight cats and dogs miss out on these special moments due to decreased energy and mobility. Their quality of life and relationships with their families suffer because of it.

Please watch the following video, Bear's Story. Unable to get around anymore because of his weight, he was reduced to living life on a tarp in order to be cared for, and even had to be carried into the vet on that tarp. I can hardly imagine a more heartbreaking sight. His family was at the end of their rope and feared that euthanasia was their only option. Luckily for Bear, his vet suggested a trial of Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Canine Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution. The transformation began. Bear started to gain back his energy and his life.

If you can’t view the video here, please see it at Pet Weight Loss Success: Bear’s Story.

Bear's story is not unique. Meet Lennie, the clinic cat at an animal hospital. Lennie is notorious for helping himself to the "buffet" available on their food shelves. Other diets have failed, but he loves Metabolic and has a lot more energy. His success has even motivated the vet's other clients to start a weight loss program with their pets!

This is Malakai. He's still losing weight in spite of the fact that his owners are feeding him 3/4 cup instead of the recommended 5/8 cup per day!

While eating Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution, an overweight animal's metabolism changes to act more like that of a lean animal. Even after weight loss is achieved, the highly efficient energy metabolism profile is maintained. Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution is clinically proven nutrition that activates your pet's metabolism to burn fat and regulate appetite. Pets lose weight while at the same time still feel full and satisfied. The product line includes wet food, dry food, even treats, making it easy to achieve weight loss success without depriving your pet of a thing.

Hill’s Metabolic is an easy way to lose weight and help maintain that weight loss over time. Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution is safe, effective, and fast. Pet parents like Bear’s can expect to see a leaner, happier pet in 60 days. An at-home feeding study was recently conducted with over 300 overweight pets. Without strict protocols or precise measuring, 88% of the pets lost weight in just 2 months. So all pets, not just ones with severe problems like Bear, can shed the pounds and regain their youthful figure.

It's so cool that these pets were helped so much by Hill's prescription metabolic food! I have a friend who is feeding her kitty this food as well to help him loose some weight. It sounds like their vet did the right thing by putting him on it. It will be wonderful for my friend to be able to play with her furry companion again! Thank you for the uplifting post. :)

This really sounds like a great food to help kitties lose weight. We're far...that we're okay weight-wise and don't need this food.

Those are great stories. When we were a multi-cat household I tried to eat up all the foods so no other kitty could have any. I got REALLY chubby. Now Mum watches my weight all the time. It's good for pet parents to keep their pets healthy and active...

Great information and a nice presentation. Truffles is a lean, mean purring machine. MOL!

Great post. My cat was headed in that direction until my vet recommended this food. It has worked so very well. He's looking better and feels more energetic.
