Just like the human obesity epidemic, over 55% of the pet population is overweight. Even a little extra weight can impact the pet's quality of life and relationship with family because that extra weight can reduce play time, impact mobility and affect the lifelong general health of your dog.

In fact, Metabolic Weight + j/d is clinically proven nutrition to help dogs naturally lose weight by activating their metabolism and improve mobility in as little as 21 days. This dry food has an irresistible chicken flavor that your dog will love.
