What is AutoShip

Overweight or obese dogs may look like they enjoy their treats, but they very likely have aches and pains in their body, they cannot move around efficiently and they experience the same depressive episodes that many overweight humans do. Fat dogs need help, which is why Ultra Pet – Dog Special Diet Weight Control is a good solution for dogs who need to drop some kilograms in order to improve their wellbeing and increase their lifespan. This scientifically developed dog food solution contains the right amount of proteins, cereals and fats to maintain a nutritional balance while reducing your dog’s caloric intake. It also contains L-carnitine to give your dog’s fat burning a natural boost, and the high-fibre content ensures your dog stays full between meals so he doesn’t go looking for snacks when he’s peckish.

Be sure to get your dog vet-checked before putting him on a calorie-restricted diet, as weight gain in dogs can have many underlying causes. To help your dog lose the extra weight, your vet may recommend Ultra Pet – Dog Special Diet Weight Control.

Ultra Pet – Dog Special Diet Weight Control is a premium brand that is vet-recommended, but because it is locally produced in South Africa, it is very affordable dog food.

Divide the recommended daily amount into two equal-sized meals per day. Limit other foods, table scraps and snacks, because feeding these would be counterproductive. Avoid changing between different diets as this may cause digestive upsets for your dog. Keep in mind that each dog is different and will have different daily nutritional requirements, therefore adjust feeding amounts to ensure a lean, healthy body condition is maintained.

    My Dogs Loving ItMy vet advised me to put my dogs on a diet, since both of them tends to be a little overweight. First I thought it’s going to be more expensive than the food they used to eat, but Ultra Dog Special Diet Low-Calorie Food actually works out a bit cheaper AND my dogs love it! We’ll see what the scale says when I take them for a checkup next month, but I trust they are both much healthier.
