This is one of our top recommendation for dogs who struggle with their weight.
Overweight dogs face various health problems from heart and breathing conditions to arthritis. Their lives are shortened and their quality of life is also lessened. If you have been challenged trying to maintain your dog's ideal weight, you know it's not an easy task as you try to balance exercise and the right diet for your dog all in the midst of your daily, busy life.
When it comes to the diet part overweight dogs benefit from a diet rich in protein (to build & support lean muscle mass), moderate in fat (to satisfy the appetite) and limited in calories and carbohydrates (likely to be stored as body fat) to achieve peak conditioning and a healthy weight. These attributes can all be found in ORIJEN's Fit & Trim dry dog food. Combining this food along with some effort and love on your part can help your dog achieve his/her ideal weight and live a longer and healthier life.
- Rich in lean protein (free-run chicken, turkey, eggs & wild-caught fish – cod, flounder & herring) which supports lean muscle mass and a healthy body weight
- Carbohydrate limited - Fast carbohydrates (such as rice, potato and tapioca) are excluded in the food and instead contains low-glycemic locally grown vegetables and fruits. This helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels, reduces the potential for fat storage, and promotes a health weight.
- Contains whole prey ratios of fresh meat, organs and cartilage which provide essential nutrients. This along with fresh whole fish and fresh whole eggs eliminates the need for long lists of synthetic additives as nutrients are being provided naturally.
