Melinda’s Freshpet Letter: Freshpet Dog Food & Weight Loss
Dear Fresh Pet,
My dog Evie turned three years old on August 19th. She is a chihuahua mix that I adopted from Heavenly Angels Animal Rescue in Queens, NY. Just six months before her third birthday, Evie was at the vet for a recurring knee problem called luxating patella. This was her fifth trip to the vet for a persistent limp. The doctor weighed her and immediately commented on how overweight she was. She tipped the scales at 13.3 pounds. The doctor recommended a drastic change to her diet, otherwise the added weight would continue to make her knee problems worse. I instantly began researching all of the dog foods out there to find what would be best to help Evie lose weight. That’s when I stumbled upon Freshpet. I weened her off of her dry food and put her on a complete Freshpet food diet (also adding in steamed green beans as the vet recommended). I am happy to report that Evie is down to 11.5 pounds! She’s doing great and has tons of energy. We still have another 1.5 pounds to go, but I’m confident we will get there. Thanks Pet Fresh for helping Evie to continue to be the happy and healthy dog I love!
