The Complete Guide To Hill’s Prescription Diet r/d Weight Reduction Dry Dog Food

Obesity is a massive epidemic in dogs. In North America, nearly half of all dogs are overweight. While overweight dogs might look cute, those extra pounds have a very negative impact on the dog’s overall health and a drastic impact on their quality of life.

 

 

One of the most alarming effects obesity has on dogs relates to their longevity. Studies have found that overweight dogs live for 2.5years less than dogs who are healthy and at an optimal weight. It also affects how much they can play around happily because obesity snowballs into mobility issues if not controlled.

Hill’s Prescription Diet r/d Weight Reduction Dry Dog Food is designed for dogs who need to lose weight. This food is excellent for dogs with a medical or genetic condition that predisposes them to gain weight. Clinical trials have shown a reduction in weight as soon as eight weeks after starting the diet!

Won’t Diet Food Affect My Dog’s Health?

Hill’s Prescription Diet dog food is nutritionally complete dog food. This dog food supports weight loss with a complex mix of soluble and insoluble fibers, antioxidants that have been clinically proven to aid in weight loss, and therapeutic levels of L-carnatine. L-carnatine supports the dog’s heart health.

Supporting heart health in dogs, especially overweight dogs, is imperative. Excess weight has a negative effect on cardiac health, and it is essential to make sure the heart gets the nutrition that can help it heal itself from any damage. L-carnatine is also used as preventative medicine.

L-carnitine also promotes healthy levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in your dog. While we don’t usually think of dogs having high cholesterol or cholesterol issues, obesity can bring out these associated symptoms.

This food also contains lysine mixed with other beneficial ingredients that prevent the body from storing fat and burn fat instead. This dog food has all the necessary vitamins, minerals, and all sorts of macro and micronutrients that dogs need.

This diet provides the calories and nutrients required to maintain healthy body functions. It does not have any adverse effect on your dog’s health. This food makes your dog feel full, helps to metabolize the fat in the body and build lean muscle, and can reduce snack cravings as well.

The amount of Hill’s Prescription Diet r/d Weight Reduction Chicken Flavor dry dog food your dog needs depends on whether you want your dog to lose weight or to maintain your dog’s current weight. Use the following guidelines:
