My vet had to put my dog on this. At first she wasn't a fan, she eats it now.

Losing it!

Buffy doesn't even know she is on a diet and the pounds are coming off. I love her no matter what weight she is but I want her to be healthy. My vet said that she would be healthier if she lost weight and that it would be better for her joints and heart health. Royal Canin is getting the job done. Buffy is losing it! Slow and steady girl. That's how we'll get it done.
