As I have been going on and on about how to get your pet to lose weight, many of our friends in the blogosphere have been completing this challenge with their pets!

The 10 weeks are up, and here are their amazing results:

Gracie from Saving More Than Me is down 1.5 pounds and feeling more playful. Gracie began her weight loss journey at 17 pounds. Her parents realized that they had been overfeeding her and she was clearly showing signs of obesity. Gracie achieved success by using the Hills Perfect Weight food, and the 10 Week Turnaround Calendar.

Rhette, from Dolly the Doxie, has lost 1 pound in 10 weeks despite several ups and downs. His mom put together the following video to document Rhette’s journey. Although Rhette has experienced some success his journey is not over, his parents are going to continue to measure his food carefully, keep his feeding scheduling, and continue to keep his activity level up.

Shadow from Deliciously Savvy has lost 3.5 pounds! Shadow took to the Hills Perfect Weight Recipe right away and has increased his play and energy significantly. Here is Shadow playing with the laser pointer.

Hazel from Posh on A Budget has lost 4 pounds! The Hills Science Diet Perfect Weight formula and exercise have led Hazel to her weight loss success.

Zero from Kathy’s Calm to Chaos Life has lost 6 pounds! Thanks to the balanced nutrition provided by Hills and the longer walks provided by her mom, she now has so much more energy. You can watch the video of Zero’s journey on her blog.

Cooper from My Little Space 4 Everything has lost almost 1 pound! Cooper’s family can’t believe how much energy he has these days! What an amazing success!

All of these pet parents know that their journey is not quite over. Each of these pets still have a way to go before they meet their goal weight. Consistency, routine, and balanced nutrition will be key to helping them reach their goals.

    I’ve struggled with trying to lose weight myself, but helping my dog lose weight with Hill’s was super easy. I hope more people will make the commitment and get their dogs healthy!
