Product details

Burns weight control+ with chicken helps you keep your adult dog at a healthy weight.

How it works

Burns weight control+ contains all the nutrients your dog needs to stay health, while reducing the amount of fat and carbohydrates they eat to help control their weight. This recipe is hypoallergenic, meaning it's free from ingredients which commonly cause allergic reactions, such as beef, dairy and wheat, so it's safe for most pets with sensitive stomachs. 

Lean chicken and fibre-rich oats make for a tasty recipe that your dog will enjoy, even if they're eating less than they're used to. It's designed specifically to help overweight dogs to lose some pounds and keep it off healthily, as well as to help diabetic dogs stay in top condition. The low level of complex carbohydrates means the release of glucose into their bloodstream is slow and controlled, reducing the risk of their blood sugar spiking.

When to use it

Dogs often don't stop eating when they're full and it can be easy for them to gain a lot of weight even if they're very active. If you can't feel their ribs or see a waist if you look at them from above, this could be a sign that they're an unhealthy size. A heavy frame can put your dog at risk of heart and joint problems. It's always advisable to speak to your vet if you're concerned. A more restricted diet and plenty of exercise  can be effective first steps for a fitter life.

It is important to remember however that these figures are guidelines only, and there are several factors to be taken into account when assessing your pet's nutritional requirements:

  1. Activity level
  2. Temperament (stressed animals burn off more calories than relaxed ones)
  3. Metabolism (every animal is an individual with his or her own speed of metabolism; this means that 2 dogs of the same age, breed and weight could have different daily calorie requirements)

In order to provide the correct portions when feeding your dog or cat, it is also helpful to assess your pet's appetite, visual appearance and stools. Whilst poo watching does not sound particularly pleasant, it is one of the best indicators of health. Increased frequency of passing faeces, production of large quantities of stools of loose motions are often frequent signs that an animal is receiving more food than he or she requires.

It is important to obtain an accurate weight for your cat or dog, and also to weigh out the food. Guessing on both accounts gives a large margin of error.

Changing Food Brands

For a successful diet change, we recommend following the feeding pattern below. The daily feeding amount should be split into two equal amounts and the proportions of new food increased over the first week as illustrated.

TOP TIPS: For those dogs who do not make eating a priority, here are some additional points:
- Reduce the number of tit-bits given during the introductory period
- If your dog has been used to eating wet food, moisten with warm water.

DAY 1-2 75% Original Diet
25% New Food
DAY 3-4 50% Original Diet
50% New Food
DAY 5-6 25% Original Diet
75% New Food
DAY 7 100% New Food

  • Burns is Best
    Have given Burns Weight Control to my two Cavaliers for many years. They love it and it keeps them trim. Excellent delivery service from Pet Supermarket makes this a definite no-brainier.
    E. Fear - March 20, 2018
  • Great product
    We use this for one of our dogs who gains weight very easily. He lost his excess weight and has maintained it on this product. As it doesn't weigh a lot he gets a decent amount to eat unlike some products. He looks good on it and has plenty of energy. Unfortunately due to dreadful service from pet supermarket I shall be purchasing elsewhere next time
