I wrote about pets needing to be at a healthy weight HERE. More than 50% of pets are overweight. Now I want to help you to create a routine so you keep your pets happy and healthy. If you have an overweight pet Hill’s® Science Diet® Perfect Weight can help with your dog’s weight loss.
Here are some fun things to do with your dog:
- Go for a walk with your dog on a leash, then jog, sprint, run once in a while. This will get your heart rate up and both you and your dog will benefit from it.
- Play tag with your dog. Run around and let the dog catch you. Your dog will love this.
- I did this with my former dog but now my dogs just will not play with toys, but you can do this. Take their favorite toy and throw it and play fetch. This gives your dog a great workout.
- Climb stairs with your dog. Take different steps, stretching, running, or moving as many muscles as possible.
- Go for a walk and try to go on a path with different surfaces, such as sand, gravel, or pavement.
- Go swimming.
In a study with Hill’s® Pet Nutrition and Wellness Institution of Northwestern Memorial Hospital showed that pets can serve as social support for their owners weight loss and maintenance. In this study both dogs and owners lost weight and kept it off. You can learn more about this study HERE on Hill’s Pet website.

This is my Velvet, she is 15. She is schedule for her haircut today!
I had to update this after her haircut.
She looks so much better. She has her bed and blanket next to me!
She is 15.
She is normally around 10 pounds. If I notice she is putting on weight I go outside and walk around the yard with her. If I did this everyday I would not have to worry about her getting overweight, but with her age and winter, she just goes outside for the shortest amount of time possible. During the warmer months we go for walks around the block and most of the neighborhood know who she is. She sneaks out by digging under the fence.
Sometimes it is hard to get all the exercise she needs, but with the kids and me walking with her makes a big difference. The 100% precisely balanced nutrition of Hill’s® Science Diet® Perfect Weight formula is what I need to start feeding her. Plus it contains prebiotic fibers for gentle digestion. They have just introduced the small and toy breed specific formula to help smaller dogs achieve a healthy weight and improve quality of life. Did you know that small and toy breeds make up 40% of the dog population.
They have other formula’s for dogs and this formula for cats.
