Black Hawk Healthy Benefits Weight Management has been specifically developed as a lower calorie* diet by our animal nutritionists and vets, to help adult dogs maintain a healthy weight. It contains supplementary L-carnitine to help boost fat metabolism and maintain strong, lean muscles. The tasty kibble has a unique shape that fills the bowl and aims to slow eating, with ingredients to help dogs feel fuller for longer. A nutrient-dense & lower-calorie formula, ideal for; Dogs with a 'more sedentary' (less active) lifestyle, Breeds predisposed to weight gain, Breeds that are highly food motivated, and Neutered dogs and older dogs, whose caloric needs are known to be reduced, will also greatly benefit from this diet *The caloric content is 9-10% less than that of our Original Chicken & Rice adult dog food. This weight management dog food contains both fresh and hydrolysed chicken, which are both high-quality digestible protein sources that help maintain lean muscle mass in dogs while they lose weight. This is important because losing weight too quickly or without adequate protein intake can result in the loss of muscle mass, which can be detrimental to a dog's overall health and well-being. And while this product is lower in calories, it is packed with concentrated vitamins and minerals, so your dog will still get all the nutrients they need for optimum health. This formula has lots of healthy fibre to prevent your pet from feeling hungry between meals. This will make it easier for you to keep your pet at a healthy weight when you see them full and satisfied. The formula contains carrot fibre, a natural source of low-calorie fermentable fibre, which helps to promote digestive health and regulate bowel movements. Additionally, carrot fibre has antioxidant benefits due to its high content of vitamin A and other phytonutrients. Plant cellulose, another form of dietary fibre, is made up of long chains of glucose molecules that are very hard for pets to digest. These ingredients are great for weight management as they help to increase the bulk of the diet without adding extra calories. The hollow cube-shaped kibbles, filled with natural fibres, have a reduced density, meaning fewer calories per kilo. The larger expanded kibble makes the bowl more appealing whilst feeding less to help counteract overfeeding by pet parents who prefer to fill the bowl. Plus, the unique shape helps to slow down those fast eaters who gobble, scoff or inhale their food.
