When Ash was overweight the veterinarian told mommy to cut down on her food.  Does that sound familiar to you?

Dog Weight LossMommy says she wishes she had known about Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution.  She thinks it would have been a much easier way for Ash to lose weight.  At least mommy wouldn’t have felt like she was starving Ash.

What Is Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution?

It’s a clinically proven nutrition that activates your pet’s metabolism to burn fat and regulate their appetite.  The Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution changes an overweight pet’s metabolism to act more like that of a lean pet.  This special food along with the treats, helps pets lose weight while feeling full and satisfied at the same time.  The line of products include canned food, dry food and treats.

 Over the last couple of months, 10 pet bloggers have had the opportunity to help their pet lose weight by trying the Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution.  We are excited to be sharing Dash’s weight loss story.   Dash is a cute little Yorkie that was overweight. His mommy blogs about him over at The Philly Dog.

This is a video before Dash lost weight.  His mommy said that because he was overweight he looked like a little sausage!


We thought we would interview Dash so you could find out more about him and his weight loss adventure!  Isn’t he a cutie!

Hill's Prescription Weight Loss Food For Dogs

I’m all dressed up and ready to interview Dash and my sidekick Diesel is going to help me stay on track!

Let’s get this show on the road!!


Scout:  So Dash, why did your mommy think you were a little on the heavy side?

Dash:  Well, when my mommy took me to the vet I weighed 12 pounds and I should have weighed 8 pounds.  Mommy said that when a Yorkie weighs 12 pounds it is like a 5’4 person weighing over 500 pounds.  From what my mommy said, that is not a good thing!

Scout:  We were also told that the extra weight was affecting your health.  Do you want to tell us a little about that?

Dash:  I have a collapsing trachea which got a lot worse when I gained the weight.  I also have luxating patellas in my hind legs and they started bothering me more as I gained weight.

Scout:  What did your mommy do to try to help you lose weight?

Dash:  She gave me low-fat food but I didn’t like it.  I refused to eat it so mommy changed back to my regular food and cut back on what she fed me.  I got down to 10 pounds but I guess that wasn’t enough because mommy said I still needed to lose 2 more pounds.  That’s when mommy signed me up try out the Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution.

Scout:  It sounds like you have a smart mommy Dash!  Do you think the Hill’s diet has helped you?

Dash:  I have lost one and a half pounds while I have been on the special food and I have 1/2 of a  pound left to lose.  Mommy says my waist is becoming more defined and my energy level has improved, but best of all my collapsing trachea has improved!  My health is getting better, I’m looking better and best of all, I feel better!

Scout:  So there you have it guys, Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution definitely worked for Dash!  If you are a little or a lot overweight, you should tell your humans about this awesome food!

Remember how Dash said his energy level has improved?  This is Dash chasing the ball!
