It Works!

Just thought I would share a picture with you. I have been using Natural Balance for quite some time now but had to switch to the "Fat Dog" brand due to my bully being 10 pounds over weight. He has now been on it for over 2 years and guess what? He went from 81 pounds to 71 so I am very happy and so is he. I have been telling others about it and hope that it helps them as well. Thanks!

Wonderful product

Baxter , our rescue dog gained weight slowly over the past few years. I took him to the vet in January and was told that he had to go on a diet. My daughter, a vet tech and employee of petco told me to try fat dog food. I started him on it in February and am happy to say that he has lost 5 lbs. the vet is happy, I am happy and most of all so is Baxter. He loves the food and I can tell he is enjoying walks and exercise so much more. I would recommend this food to anyone who gas a pet that needs a low calorie food.

My Boxers Love This Food!

I have two boxers, both rescue dogs - one senior girl that was getting a bit pudgy and a young boy who developed pancreatitis over the winter. Prescription foods made it worse so I did my own research and found Fat Dog. I switched them both and couldn't be happier with the results! My girl has dropped 10 lbs. and my boy's tummy issues are completely resolved. They love this food and can't wait to eat it everyday! Thank you for making such a great product! Now all I need is larger bags of it...any chance you'll make a 40lb bag?


Back into her skinny sweater

By March of 2014, after a particularly brutal Midwestern winter we had all put on a few pounds. I was very concerned about my 10 year old German Shepherd/Beagle mix who has bad hips. Her normal weight was 48 lbs and she was up to 60! My boyfriend thinks dogs love treats more than walks & love. NOT!!! She started the Fat Dog formula and I mixed in a cup of green beans (frozen, thawed in microwave with low sodium chicken broth) and we started her diet. I am very pleased to say that Bella has lost 9 lbs and looks great at 51 lbs. This took six months. I used the green beans for healthy filler with the O.K. of her vet.


sexy boy

This is Buddy, he has lost 24 lbs in 9 months on a Fat Dogs diet. The food works great and all 3 of my dogs love it. The vet is very happy with the weight lost and the food he's on. He has a lot more energy and pep. I am very happy with the food.

Great product for weight loss!

I've had my 8 year old pug who was 38 pounds on this food for 4 months (2 bags). He's down over 6 pounds and I couldn't be happier. One more bag and he will be at his ideal weight. His energy has increased and he overall is a happier healthier dog!!! I would recommend this food to anyone who has an over weight dog. :)

Couldn't be happier!

Cavaliers have a tendency to be overweight and Bailey was no exception. I've tried so many dog foods claiming to help him lose weight with no success. I bought the fat odds formula and Bailey has lost 4 pounds in the last 2 months. Our vet was so impressed. He is going to recommend this product to other clients struggling with overweight dogs. We couldn't be happier!

lost weight

I started to use Fat Dogs 1 month ago ,because my dog was gaining weight fast. I had him checked and he started meds and Fat Dogs food. Took him to get weighed and blood work and in 1 month he lost 8 lbs the vet was happy and so was I. The dog food is working great and blood work great. I think this food is helping him a lot. I'm glad I tried it.

Both Dogs Love It!

I bought the Fat Dogs Dry food for my small dog because he needs to eat low-fat due to pancreatitis. Our other medium size dog has never had a weight problem. The good news is that both the dogs LOVE this dog food. It's actually their most favorite flavor of all the Natural Balance dry dog foods. She gobbles up four scoops of this food every day with a little chicken/sweet potato canned food mixed into it. I am so happy to have found a dry food that both of my dogs love. And the absolute best part, no stinky poop!
