Eukanuba Restricted Calorie FormulaDietary Recommendation

This diet can be used if your pet has excess weight and needs to lose weight. Excess weight can lead to other health issues such as joint pain, diabetes, heart problems and surgery complications. Restricted Calorie Diet is only available through your veterinarian and should be the sole source of food unless indicated by your veterinarian.

What are the causes?

Many pet owners are ‘loving their pets to an early death’.

Three main factors contribute to weight gain:

  • Excessive food
  • Low activity levels
  • Genetics – some pets eat very little but gain weight very quickly

The Solution

Common causes of weight gain include: overeating due to boredom, emotional stress, bad eating habits or feeding the wrong kinds of food. In rare cases, a hormone imbalance can also trigger weight gain.
