If you feed your dogs high carb, high calorie pellet food that the body is not familiar with, it simply gets stored as fat. The pellet form food is inappropriate and our pets do not know how to store these nutrients. As a result, they simply get stored as fat. If one feeds balanced whole foods, your pet will metabolize healthily, and start to lose weight in a healthy and controlled manner.
Feeding balanced, nutritionally beneficial food as per the Vondis feeding guidelines, means that your pet will reach its preferred and recommended weight.
Most of the common ailments we find nowadays are as a result of feeding dry pellet or kibble food – this includes all skin ailments, digestive issues, obesity, bladder disorders and arthritis. We at Vondis blame all of these conditions on dry kibble food itself, as well as flea poisons.
In order to assist your dog to lose weight, diet must be changed to a high moisture diet (not dried food which can be the cause of many other ailments).
