In this society I think we over indulge with everything! And when it comes to our pets most of us like to spoil them! And it was no surprise to me when I was in the pet store last week and came across this product.
Since then I've seen it on tv almost daily! My dog Allie was at the vets this past week with a reoccuring foot problem. At her appointment we discovered that she is even heavier than she was this past summer. She weighed 14 pounds this past summer and she now weighs 16 pounds! Because of her extra weight, it may be hard to tell but she is a chihuahua mix!
This is what she looked like when she was about a year old! Here she is with Ben. I think what has happened over the years is that she is consuming all the food that the boys have dropped on the floor as babies and toddlers!
Not to mention some intentional feedings I imagine!
So I fed her a one packet around 8 o'clock this morning. And the other packet around 6 o'clock this evening! She had one biscuit around lunchtime and then the other at bed! The program states that 96% of dogs lose weight within the first month! That is IF you follow the plan! Today she was soo consumed with hunger that she manged to climb the boys chair and jump on the couch and steal a graham cracker from Alex's bowl! But I don't blame her, I'm like that too when I am starved! lol ;)
The plan was a little pricey...you get a 5 week supply (for small breeds) for around $44. But if it works, that is what is important...I want her to be around for a very long time! And at this rate her obesity isn't very good for her health!
With this program they are supposed to lose 1% of their body weight per week! I'll have to keep you updated!
