Vet Food Disclaimer

A lot of dogs are overweight, and the excess weight is usually the result of eating too many calories, with too little exercise. Being overweight doesn’t just affect your pet’s overall wellbeing, but in the longer term it also endangers your dog’s heath and can significantly reduce its life expectancy. It is often necessary to use a special diet food to help your dog to achieve an ideal weight. Royal Canin Veterinary Diet – Obesity can help your overweight dog to lose weight. This food has a higher protein content to ensure that your dog feels full after meals during the weight loss phase and that it does not lose muscle mass. You can feed your dog a larger volume of food, with a lower calorie content, thanks to the lower energy density of this special most food. Chondroitin and glucosamine help to combat degenerative joint ailments and help to maintain healthy cartilage.

Recommended for (indications):

  • Adiposity
Not recommended for (contraindications):
  • Lactating bitches, pregnant bitches or puppies
Key benefits:
  • Low energy density: The formulation allows for an increased daily feed ration with a reduced calorie content, which means that your dog will feel full without consuming energy that it does not need.
  • High protein content: The increased protein content supports the feeling of fullness and preserves muscle tissue.
  • Balanced nutrition: Added minerals and vitamins help to ensure good nutrition in spite of the lower calorie intake.
  • Joint protection: Chondroitin sulphate (inhibits enzymatic damage of chondrozytes) and glucosamine (stimulates the formation of glycosaminoglycanes) both help to prevent degenerative joint ailments.
Duration of treatment:
The daily feeding amount is set based on how overweight your dog is at the time of starting to use this food. The best rate of weight loss is 1 – 3% per week. After reaching a healthy weight, you can switch to using Royal Canin’s Obesity Management, Weight Control or Neutered products to help your dog to maintain their ideal weight. In the weight maintenance phase, your dog should only consume up to 10% more calories than in the most recent weight loss phase.

  • Well accepted
