Why did you create the Fat Dogs and Fat Cats formulas?

We all love our cats and dogs and want them to live a long healthy life. Today, veterinarians are reporting more and more overweight cats and dogs due to overfeeding and a lack of exercise. This is a major health concern, which is why we created our Fat Dogs® and Fat Cats™ formula. Research shows the best weight loss diet is one not only reduced in calories, but one with a level of protein that helps maintain a lean body plus added fiber to help reduce begging behavior. We created our Fat Dogs® and Fat Cats™ formula using these scientific principles with a taste your pet will love. Using this diet along with regular exercise can help your pet reach a healthy weight, which is the best way to help your overweight pet live a longer, happier life.

 

I currently feed Reduced Calorie formula, should I switch to this new formula?

If they are doing well, no need to change diets. If they need to lose weight, or past weight loss attempts are unsuccessful, definitely! This would also be a question of satiety. If you need to cut back on the Reduced Calorie formula to maintain a body weight to the point where a pet is driving you crazy begging for food, Fat Dogs formula has 15% less calories and Fat Cats has 13% less calories than Reduced Calorie and may help with satiety and keeping the weight off. If your pet has successfully lost weight on Fat Dogs or Fat Cats, but continues to lose weight, the Reduced Calorie formula may help promote weight stability weight after successful weight loss.

Fat Dogs and Fat Cats were specifically formulated for pets with very low energy needs and those that need to lose weight. Some pets may not need to lose weight and may not need this degree of calorie restriction. Select the Reduced Calorie formula for these pets.

 

Do Reduced and Fat Cats and Fat Dogs Formulas do the same thing?

They don’t do the same thing. Reduced Calorie has less calories than Original Ultra and is ideal for overweight prone breeds (Golden Retriever, Labrador Retrievers, Bulldogs, Beagles, dachshund), older pets and those that don’t need the added calories of an all-life-stage diet. Fat Dogs and Fat Cats are specifically formulated for dogs/cats with very low energy needs and those that really need to lose weight.

 

How many calories does this new formula have?

Our Fat Dogs® formula has 250 kcal/8 oz cup and our Fat Cats™ formula has 305 kcal/8 oz cup.
