Helps satisfy hunger with a special blend of fibers to help dogs feel full

Supports bones and joints placed under stress by excess body weight with targeted nutrients

Complete and balanced nutrition that helps ensure essential nutrient needs are met during weight loss

High protein helps maintain muscle mass as dogs achieve their ideal weight

This veterinary-exclusive dry dog food is specially formulated to promote safe weight loss in overweight and obese dogs. In fact, in a clinical trial, 97% of dogs lost weight in three months, and begging was controlled in 83% of dogs. This complete and balanced diet promotes satiety—meaning it provides a feeling of satisfaction, which helps your dog feel full between meals and be less likely to beg. Its high fiber content helps reduce dogs' tendency to want to eat spontaneously throughout the day, and glucosamine and chondroitin supports joint and bone health. Balanced essential nutrients ensure nutrient requirements are met, while high protein helps maintain muscle mass. Soluble and insoluble fibers promote healthy digestion and optimal stool quality. And antioxidants support a healthy immune system. Remember, exercise like regular walks and playtime can also help your lovable dog achieve a healthy weight. Be sure to consult your veterinarian to know what level of activity is appropriate for your pet.

Why was pellet shape change

Why fix it if it is not broken? I cannot find a review that suggest making the food pellets larger so why make a change? Although our dog will eat most anything rotting on the side of the road she is not a fan of the new size of this food. There appears to be a sufficient number of negative reviews about this issue for the company to at least respond to one of them with an explanation of what was gained by the change.

Horrible Changes

My mini dachshund has been on this for months and loved it. The new design came out and she now will not touch it. I am very disappointed as this was the only diet food she would eat. The new formula is definitely a deal breaker for me.

Horrible new design

We have feed this food to our Pugs for over 4 years and with the new design we will never buy it again. It is a shocking hazard.

Recommended by my vet

I didnt realise mine werent the only dogs that didnt like the new shape. I have an overweight spaniel and a miniature schnauzer and it was easier for them to jave the same food.The only way they will eat it now is with a little wet food on top which destroys the point of it really. Its so expensive anyway that I am looking to change brands

Sad that dog won't eat this and I bought a big bag

Didn't realise the shape had changed. I bought the very large (expensive!) bag and now my dog won't eat it until at least a co uple of hours after it has been put down and she's just too hungry. Previously she would clear the bowl in seconds.

This new shape is not great

My dog absolutely will not eat the new “star” shaped kibble. I get the new design of the bag to update the look but changing the kibble shape is a no go. My pet used to eat her two cups of circled kibble with no issues, now I can barely get her to eat her one cup for breakfast. Because of the shape she isn’t getting enough calories to keep her healthy.

What’s with new odd shape

Is a cup really a cup since these odd shapes to not fit densely. Our dog acts starved recently and we are concerned she’s not getting the same amount. Please advise.

New Shape.....Do NOT like!

My dog has been on this food for several years and we love it, she lost over 10lbs and that's a lot for a 30lb dog!! BUT what is going on with the new shape????? It is HORRIBLE!!! No need for huge chunks for a 30lb dog, maybe you need to offer a smaller kibble for medium size dogs.

Don’t like the new shapes

My dog still likes the food but it does not fit in his spinning dog feeder. We had to drill bigger holes in the feeder. I liked the old shape better.

Why the change

My dog loved the food and it controlled his weight. The new size is too large and the shapes serve no purpose. Someone trying to justify their job by making unneeded changes. Go back to the old size or I will move on.
