Nutritional Products for Overweight Dogs

If your dog is indeed overweight, this may be a good time to switch to a food that’s lower in fat. Exclusive® Reduced Fat contains a mere 9 to 11 percent fat. At the same time, it contains a generous 26 percent protein, which can help your dog maintain muscle as he loses fat. It also contains glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate for healthy joints—an important benefit for overweight dogs. And it has Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids for healthy skin and coat. Another good option is Red Flannel® Adult formula. It contains only 12 percent fat (compared to 18 percent in the Prime formula or 16 percent in the Active formula). It also contains glucosamine for healthy joints.
