Redefining Food Is Love #HillsPet


Weight issues are at epidemic levels in the US with over half of the US pets described as overweight.   I am one of those pets.   What kitty or woofie doesn't like to eat good food or have treats?  Isn't that another way of our humans showing us that they love us?   #HillsPet is helping to redefine Food Is Love!    



You might enjoy reading this interesting article from PetMed regarding the risks of an overweight pet:   PetMed:  http://bit.ly/1m5PCnj





M has learned over the past few months that food and treats are okay as long as it is not overdone like she used to do.   When she was just trying to cut back on the amount of food I got every day, I felt deprived.  She felt bad not giving me more food when I asked.   I also wasn't getting treats! Bummer! Of course, her method of cutting back a little on how much food I got just wasn't working at all because we were guessing at how much food I should get.  I really didn't lose anything and felt deprived.




Now that I'm on the Hills Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution Program, I still get plenty to eat because this food is designed to reset kitties' or woofies' metabolisms.  I usually feel satisfied after each meal. M feels this is another way she can show me that she loves me - giving me a healthy food that will help me lose weight in a safe way.  With the help of Hills, M is redefining that old theory of "Food Is Love" in our house.  I am losing weight and still get 2 treats every day that are special.  
Hills has said we can all (you are included in this) pay this forward to our friends through the Tell-a-Friend Program.   Share the Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution $25 Wellness Visit Rebates form with all of your friends and family.   Encourage them to see their veterinarian for a wellness visit if their pet is overweight (this is a must in order to be placed on the program).   They will receive a $25 rebate for the vet visit and a $25 rebate coupon for the food if their pet is too pudgy and the vet recommends this prescription diet.  Instructions are on the Rebate Form.

Just fill the form from Hills found here:   Hill's Rebate And Coupon Form 

If you have shared this with a friend, then send them the link for the form too.   BlogPaws is collecting the forms and sending them on to Hill's, who will handle the rebates and coupons.  You must fill out the form to get the process started.

This  program does work, and your dear pet will lose weight in a safe way if you follow the program as directed by your vet.

When I serve treat, I sometimes let my boys jump to high perches so they get a little exercise :-)
Glad this diet is working for you!

Good review Mario.
Dad has us all on wet food due to the kibble having so many calories. Our Buddy Budd was big at 20+ pounds when he came to live with us and when he started limping Dad read up on how to get the weight off. Great guy isn't he! Anymeow, he tried us on raw but we said no way. He did switch us to wet, that I liked right off, but Buddy took a long time as he was a Kibble Addict.
Food is so impawtent. He makes some of our treats out of Chick-Hen that he mixes with good things and puts in a dehydrator. That is on his bloggie which has links on our bloggie
Great post my furend
