Purina Veterinary Diets OM Overweight Management Canine Formula

Safe & Effective Weight Loss & Weight Maintenance

The role of dietary management in canine obesity is to reduce calorie intake sufficiently to induce weight loss, while providing a proper balance of total nutrients. A low fat diet that can be helpful in controlling calorie intake. Dietary crude fiber helps reduce the amount of available calories and contributes to satiety. Increased dietary protein increases metabolic activity and may promote satiety. In addition, an increased protein:calorie ratio promotes loss of body fat while helping to minimize the loss of lean body mass during weight loss. Obese animals experience an increase in oxidative stress. Isoflavones have been shown to reduce oxidative stress in overweight dogs. Isoflavones also aid in weight maintenance by helping to reduce weight rebound and the associated accumulation of fat. Feeding a diet that is low in calories, high in protein and fiber, and contains isoflavones, may be beneficial in the management of obesity while meeting the nutritional needs of the animal.
