PURINA PROPLAN VETERINARY DIETS Canine OM Obesity Management
Purina PROPLAN Veterinary Diets Canine OM Obesity Management is designed to help encourage weight loss in overweight or obese dogs.
How it works
This food has been carefully developed to deliver higher levels of protein and natural fibre. These proteins and fibres are not only nutritionally valuable to your dog, but also promote a feeling of fullness and satisfaction. Feeling full means your dog is less likely to overeat. Even when your dog reaches their ideal weight, this food is a great way to help them maintain it.
The low fat content and glucose control regulates your dog’s blood sugar level. This can combat hunger pangs, and also works to make your dog feel fuller for a longer period of time. Furthermore, this mix is suitable for diabetic dogs. The high protein and fibre count, combined with glucose, and low fat content are ideal for animals that need regulated blood sugar.
- high levels of proteins and fibre satisfy your dog’s hunger
- low fat content
- glucose control regulates blood sugar, meaning your dog stays fuller for longer
- suitable for diabetic dogs
- reduces the build-up of body fat
- low calorie content.
When to use it
Gaining weight is a gradual process, and you may not immediately notice your dog is getting bigger. Regular visits to the vet are a good way to stay on top of your dog’s weight, but you can also check at home. If you can’t feel your dog’s ribs when running a hand over their chest, for example, it could be an indication they are overweight. Dogs that are overweight or obese can face a number of health risks. The extra weight can cause physical problems in your dog’s joints and bones. Accumulation of body fat can cause conditions such as hypertension, reduced immune system function, and increased cancer risk. Apart from these conditions, it is estimated that a healthy dog will live for two years longer than an overweight pet.
Because veterinary diets are formulated for the nutritional support of pets with specific clinical conditions, we recommend that you only use them under professional advice. For more information on feeding Purina PROPLAN Veterinary Diets Canine OM Obesity Management to your dog, please consult your veterinary surgeon.

Excellent product and serviceStarted buying this product on vet advice. Our dog ruby a cavalier King Charles spaniel loves this food. I've added all bran to it for fibre and she eats it no problems. Bought rubyvthis food to stop her gaining weight. It works a treat!! Delivery is excellent and arrives within a few days after ordering. Packaged in a box. I'm very satisfied with the product and service and will definitely be ordering again.
Genuine companyi was sceptical of buying from the website as i used to buy it from reputable companies until they stopped selling the OM food. i have used them on 2 occasions now and i would use them again. i have had no problems with the pet supermarket. straight forward to purchase and they dispatch pretty quick. it gets sent in a box.
