Purina Project: Pet Slim Down™ (Enter to Win a Year Supply of Dog or Cat Food!)

I mentioned last week that a recent trip to the vet encouraged us to try a new weight loss regimen for our cat, Nessie. We have been trying prescription cat food for about a year and a half now because our other cat has chylothorax. And as I mentioned before, even though their current food was super low in fat, it was packed full of carbs, which (poor kitty) went straight to Nessie's hips. Our vet recommended Purina OM (overweight management) for Nessie, and took it upon herself to call the scientists at Purina to see if it would also be an acceptable diet for Genevieve's chylothorax. The answer was a green light, so here we go on Nessie's weight loss journey!

The Purina Project: Pet Slim Down™

The wonderful folks at Purina are determined to create a healthier world for our pets. Often, we feed our pets without even thinking about it too much. Are we measuring the amount of food they get? Do we let them graze how they please throughout the day? How about treats? Are we really keeping track and limiting intake? Would we feed our children this way?

It's a lot to think about. Here are some of the facts from Project: Pet Slim Down™:

-58% of cats in the United States are overweight or obese (that's you, Ness)
-An extra 3lbs on a Boston Terrier is equivolent to an extra 30lbs on an 150lb adult human.

Yikes! Luckily, the Project: Pet Slim Down™ is a proven way for pets to eat healthier, get active and lose some weight! I was amazed to read some of the success stories, like the one about Jodi, a bullmastiff that lost 16% of her body fat in just 12 weeks.
