Hills Prescription Diet Canine R/D is a complete food that is formulated for overweight and obese dogs. It contains L-Carnitine to help burn fat while increasing lean muscle mass. It is also low in calories and high in dietary fibre to ensure that your pet feels full and satisfied as well as antioxidants that maintain a strong and healthy immune system.
Weight gain is the result of an increase in body fat and is usually caused by eating too much, especially when combined with a lack of exercise. Older pets usually suffer from weight gain as they are less active and neutering or spaying your pets can contribute to weight gain as it alters their metabolism. Weight gain can result in a high risk of other conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and breathing problems.
