Why Does Hill's Prescription Diet Require a Prescription?
Answer

Nutritionists and veterinarians have developed Hill's Prescription diet to help your dog lose weight and improve its joint health. Since dog food has a specific recipe comprising precise ingredients and nutrients to address medical issues, a licensed vet's authorization is required. Usually, online stores need customers to provide veterinary clinic information and upload a scan of the prescription to complete the purchase.

Does Walking Dog Help Lose Weight?
Answer

Yes, regular walking and runs help manage the dog's weight effectively. Pet parents must increase the length and intensity of a dog's daily walk to lose weight. Several dog breeds reflexively walk at a pace required to elevate the heart rate for sustained aerobic activity and thus induce weight loss. According to several reports, the best walking pace to lose weight is 12-15 minutes per kilometer. If your dog is on a weight management program, try to walk for 30 mins daily.

Do Green Beans Help Dogs Lose Weight?
Answer

Green Beans are not only safe for dogs to eat, but they are also an excellent food for weight loss. Pet parents must take care to feed only raw, frozen, steamed, and chopped green beans to dogs. Don't ever feed canned green beans to your dog as they have a high level of salts, which is dangerous for your canine pal. Pet parents can safely replace a portion of the dog's diet with green beans. The vegetable has low calories and high fiber content, which helps your dog trim the extra pounds. However, the green bean diet might cause a nutritional imbalance in your dog's diet.

How Much Weight Can a Dog Lose in a Week?
Answer

As a general rule of thumb, your dog should lose around 1-2 percent of its body weight every week. Before starting the weight management program, weigh your dog and set a goal for an ideal weight. Once started, closely monitor your dog's weight by measuring every couple of weeks or every week. If your dog is not losing 1 to 2 percent of its body weight every week, pet parents must restrict the diet further. Make sure that no one in your family is giving the dog extra food or treats. Once you reach your ideal weight goal, the dog's dietary intake should be gradually increased. Stick to a diet that is healthy and doesn't cause weight to regain. It's very crucial to continue monitoring your dog's weight to avoid any regain in the future.

How Can I Speed up My Dog's Metabolism?
Answer

The best way to lose a dog's weight is to understand its metabolism. Overweight dogs benefit greatly from a custom diet designed for weight management, including a metabolic diet. A diet plan with lower calories and high fiber content helps in speeding up a dog's metabolism. While lowering the number of calories consumed is essential, pet parents must consult a veterinarian to formulate a diet with the required calories to boost metabolism. If the calorie count is too low, the dog's body shifts to starvation mode, where the metabolic rate is lowered to conserve energy and muscle tissues are broken down for energy. This is not something a pet parent would want.

What Are Metabolic Foods?
Answer

Metabolic foods are clinically proven nutrition-rich feed that contains just the right amount of calories and high fiber content. The combination of restricted calorie intake and increased fiber kicks off the metabolism rate and helps in effective weight management. The metabolic dog food also has antioxidants for the holistic wellness of the dog.
