Purina Pro Plan Dog All Sizes Adult Light or Sterilised with Optiweight rich in Chicken dry food helps dogs maintain a healthy weight.
How it works
Designed by Purina's vets and nutritionists, this food can assist weight loss in overweight dogs and help dogs prone to weight gain (e.g. sterilised pets) maintain a healthy size.
The recipe is low in fat and high in protein, helping your dog to maintain lean muscle mass throughout a diet. The use of dietary fibre and complex carbohydrates keeps your dog feeling fuller for longer after eating.

The formula promotes calorie burning and keeps joints healthy to make exercising easy. High-quality pieces of chicken are used for extra flavour, making meal times even more appealing.

When to use it
Weight gain in dogs can lead to obesity ' a condition that can put stress on your pet's joints, shorten their lifespan and reduce their enjoyment of exercise and play. If you notice your dog gaining weight it's important to restrict their calorie intake before the problem becomes serious.The best way to find out if your dog is overweight is to take them to the vet for weighing and a body fat analysis. There are some quick tests you can do at home, too. The first is to look at them from above: their waist should be defined. Next, stroke them gently along their sides. You should be able to feel their ribs underneath a thin layer of fat. If your dog has no visible waist and you can't feel their ribs, they're overweight.
Although the main causes of weight gain in pets are too much food and not enough exercise, it can also be a symptom of deeper problems including hyperthyroidism, pancreatic cancer, and Cushing's disease. It's important to visit your vet to rule these out before starting your pet on a calorie-controlled diet.

Good productStarted this after our Labrador was spayed and she seems to like it.....but then she's a Labrador and it would be an understatement to say that she's not fussy!
Our dog loves it.Excellent product. Very good quality and easy for our dog to digest without piling on weight.
Very good productI have been using this product for about a month after changing from another brand. So far I am very happy with how my dog lola has responded to the change. Lola needed to Lose some weight and this product has massively help her get back to what she needs to be at. It seems better then most dog foods and is a very good size
FantasticGreat dog food. My boy enjoyed this and ate it quickly. Too quickly infact. I think he prefers it to his normal mix of dry and wet food. Giant sized bags so I think very cheap for the item.
Dog loved itI normally have to mix dry food and wet food for my 2 year old lab. As soon as I put the food down he chomped away never had to give wet food with it. Well I have noticed as well he is calmer and has lost weight as well. The negative side is its not cheap. Other than that one thing I would recommend this to anyone.
