Feed whole food, not diet food

The nutrients dogs need for sustainable weight loss

When it comes to weight loss, we’ve been trained to count the quantity of calories, not the quality. But not all calories are equal—it is critical to choose your dog’s diet based on nutrients.

Dogs that are consistently fed a processed kibble diet are unable to digest properly so they store these empty calories as fat. But real whole foods work with a dog’s natural digestive system, enabling vital nutrition to be absorbed and utilized.

Healthy Weight is a fresh, holistic recipe made with muscle-building protein plus low-glycemic fruits and veggies. It also contains other vitamin and mineral-packed superfoods including inulin and probiotics to support gut health, immunity and weight management.

“Health begins in the kitchen. Feeding real food helps control your dog’s weight for good health and longevity.”
– Dr. Harvey

Help your pup lose weight the healthy way

Having love handles won’t just slow your pups down. It could lead to disease and shorten their lifespan. The recipe for a lean, healthy dog starts with a clean, healthy diet — plain and simple.

Easy to make. Just add hot water!

Preparing fresh food for your dog takes just minutes a day and it’s really easy to do. Please see the included booklet for suggested feeding amounts.

  • Step 1: Measure the correct amount of food
    (see chart below)
  • Step 2: Add hot water and wait 12 minutes
  • Step 3: Serve a healthy, homemade meal!

The hidden calories in kibble

Most dry pet food contains a high amount of empty calorie processed starches. Even “grain-free kibble”. Many pet food manufacturers use a high heat process called extrusion that destroys the naturally occurring vitamins and minerals our fur friends need to thrive. The poor-quality carbohydrates and fillers often used to hold these highly-processed kibble pellets together can promote canine weight gain and make it even harder than it already is to slim down.

  • Kibble is highly processed
  • Cooked at a high heat that obliterates nutrients
  • Can’t compare to the fresh nutrients dogs get from eating fresh food

Feeding a junk food diet leads to a junk food body

 

How gut health affects weight loss

Just like humans, a dog’s digestive system is made up of hundreds of different kinds of bacteria, most of them friendly. Studies suggest that this gut bacteria may play a powerful role in weight regulation, and that imbalances might make it harder to lose weight. Processed foods such as kibble have been shown to harm a dog’s microbiome, the community where these colonies of bacteria live, which can lead to inflammation, weakened immunity and a range of health issues.

Our Healthy Weight formula is packed with good gut health ingredients that nourish your dog’s microbiome to support proper digestion and overall wellness.

The dangers of canine obesity

Obesity is the number one health threat pets face, affecting nearly two-thirds of dogs in this country. Dogs who are 30% above their ideal body weight are classified as obese, but even five extra pounds can pose a threat. Being overweight can reduce your dog’s life expectancy, diminish their quality of life and put them at increased risk for serious medical conditions.

Some of the common disorders associated with excess weight in dogs include:

The truth about canine weight loss

Many so-called weight loss foods mislead consumers by plastering buzzwords like low-fat and low-calorie across their packaging. But just as with human diet foods, removing the fat usually means replacing it with sugar to make it more palatable.

  • Most weight control kibble swaps out the fat for cheap starches, but these empty carbs convert to sugar in your dog’s body, only making the problem worse.
  • Dogs need healthy fats for their bodies to digest properly and to help them feel satisfied. Limit a dog’s fat and they will constantly be hungry.
  • Experts agree the most important factor in canine weight loss is a diet rich in whole foods, one that works alongside their natural digestion.
  • Yes, there should be some caloric restriction but remember, not all calories are equal!
  • A clean whole food diet combined with regular exercise and an active lifestyle is your best friend’s best bet to reach and maintain a healthy weight.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Can I make Healthy Weight ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator?
    For best results, make fresh daily. Rehydrated food can be stored in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 3 days. Add hot water and stir after refrigeration to bring to the desired consistency.

  • My dog is a picky eater. How can I make this more palatable?
    Most dogs love the taste of real food. However, if your dog doesn’t take to Healthy Weight right away, try rehydrating the mixture with bone broth or low sodium chicken or beef stock broth instead of water to entice him or her.

  • My dog seems really hungry. Is this enough food?
    A prepared serving of Healthy Weight may look like less food than you are currently feeding your dog, but rest assured that this is a nutrient dense recipe formulated to meet daily canine dietary requirements. A serving of Healthy Weight has everything dogs naturally need for health and vitality, and nothing they don’t.

  • Is it okay to still give my dog treats?
    If your dog needs to get to a healthy weight, limit snacks in between meals and skip the table scraps. Give all-meat training treats such as Dr. Harvey’s Le Dogue Bites, fresh chicken pieces or pure beef — no cheese or processed foods.
