As you may have noticed, I've been sharing info and stories about the new Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution dog and cat food. (Holy cow that's a mouthful to say! Handful to type?) Several of you got to try the food out for free when we did a giveaway, and hopefully many more of you took advantage of the rebate I posted last month for the food and vet visit! Today I'm wrapping up this series of posts by sharing the story of a fellow blogger's cat's progress using this food!
This is Vega, whose adventures you'll usually find of over at The Adventures of Puppy and Cat. She's 6 years old, and is a lover of cuddles (after my own heart, Vega!) but has really started to gain weight over the past year. The increased weight meant a drop in energy so she became a bigger fan of naps than of playing, and even started snoring! With her starting weight at 14.5 pounds, her vet suggested that she should lose around three pounds to get back to a healthy weight.
Cat weight loss can be tough, since nobody wants to feel like they're depriving their pet, and since up until recently most weight less regimes for pets involved cutting back the amount of food, success was hard since it's tough not to give in when they beg for more. I know that my cats tend to act like they're starving to death if dinner is even a little late, so I can only imagine how they'd react if I tried to cut the amount! With the Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution food you feed the same amount as usual, so your cat doesn't get all "Yo, dude, there's supposed to be more food in my bowl!" And they still get treats!
Did somebody say treats?
After two months on the new line of food, Vega has already dropped a pound and a half, so she's already halfway to her goal weight! Even better, she's stopped snoring and has become more interested in playing again.
All of the adorable images of Vega in this post come from this post about her weight loss journey at Puppy And Cat. I'll admit that I spent an embarrassing amount of time picking out which ones to use - they're all so cute! (I'm possibly a little biased because she looks a lot like my Bear cat!) Thanks so much to Vega's owner for sharing!
