K-9 Slim Down Description from Pet Naturals Of Vermont
Pet Naturals is one of the first companies to introduce a Phase 2 pet weight loss product for dogs. This clinically and scientifically proven starch blocking ingredient has been shown to cut starch digestion up to 75%, so it naturally reduces absorption of carbohydrate calories to support weight loss without the use of stimulants. Dogs love the tasty chicken liver flavor!
In a published veterinary conducted canine trial, 15 dogs showed an average weight loss of almost 5% of their body weight over an 8 week period and an average of abdominal girth reduction of 1.44 inches per dog due solely to use of Phase 2 pet starch blocker. By blocking starch carbohydrates as a source of energy, the dogs were forced to burn body fat for energy. The weight loss seen in this study was attributed to loss of fat and not loss of muscle.
K-9 SLIM DOWN is recommended to support weight loss in overweight dogs, especially those with joint discomfort, dogs eating commercial foods with starch or carbohydrate additives and for those dogs fed table scraps. K-9 SLIM DOWN is a great companion product to any of our Hip & Joint products for joint support in overweight dogs.
