GIVEAWAY CLOSED!!! Thanks to all who entered!!! Congratulations to Shanna from Minneapolis!
In October of last year I introduced you to my overweight cat, Nessie. At her three year checkup she weighed in at 17.2lbs. Our vet suggested that we try her on Purina OM (overweight management). For our household, it was a double thumbs-up because our other kitty, Genevieve, also needed a diet extremely low in fat for her chylothorax.
We signed Nessie up for the Project Pet Slim Down right away. She has not yet been back to the vet for a weigh-in, but her eating schedule is more routine not and she definitely has more energy to snuggle and play with her family.
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.
