The Need for Your Dog Weight Loss Program
After many years working as a veterinarian I have met thousands of pet owners who have struggled to manage their pet’s weight. And in turn I have watched many dogs battle weight-associated illness.
Overweight dogs often suffer conditions such as arthritis, respiratory illness, diabetes and tumors. Sadly more often than not, these ailments cut dog’s lives short.
Despite my own intentions and those of my veterinary colleagues, rates of successful dog weight loss remain low. Over the years I have pondered this point and have concluded that:
Dog weight loss may be simple but it is not easy!
Simple because we all know that to lose weight calories consumed must be less than calories burnt! Right?
But successful weight loss goes beyond numbers and figures. It’s about behavioral and lifestyle change.
Successful dog weight loss involves working on household habits and emotions. We must identify food vices and manage pet behaviors. As well as put in place suitable calorie restriction and activity programs.
Most importantly, successful dog weight loss depends on a dedicated household and a motivated owner.
It’s fair to say that dog weight loss is not easy, unless you have the right guidance and support!
Hence, my development of the Dog Slim Dog Weight Loss Program: The K9 Weight Challenge.
Dr Charlotte Williamson BVSc MPHTMI’ll help you reward your faithful friend with the most valuable gift of all. The ability to live life to the full!
The K9 Weight Challenge is a 12 week online weight management program. Think of it as a Dog Weight Watch or Biggest Loser for Dogs providing you with veterinary guidance and dog weight loss support.
Our dog weight loss program is suitable for a wide range of dogs (toy breeds to giant breeds, city dogs to farm dogs). And can be completed from the comfort of your own home.
We are not a “boot camp” style program that sets unrealistic levels of exercise. And you do not need to purchase equipment or specific brands of food.
Instead we will teach you tools to develop a suitable dietary intake for your dog. And help you create your dog, a healthier lifestyle.
By nurturing the human-pet bond and rewiring habits, we will makeover your dog’s future. Together we will help your dog rediscover their lost health, vitality and play!
