Too much weight can be bad for a dog’s health. The good news is Diamond CARE Weight Management Formula for Adult Dogs can help address weight issues in dogs without leaving them feeling hungry. Powdered cellulose, a source of insoluble fiber, helps dogs feel full, while L-Carnitine aids the body in metabolizing fat. Added glucosamine and chondroitin help support joints that may be working a little harder under extra weight. And to make sure dogs get all the nutrients they still need, this formula is rounded out with omega fatty acids, guaranteed antioxidants and canine-specific probiotics for digestive health. This is a complete diet, so you can feed it long-term, but you should always check with a veterinarian before making any changes to your dog’s diet.

Key Research Findings and Supporting Studies

Diamond CARE pet foods are designed based on proven research and carefully curated studies. This document is a synopsis of the key findings that guided the formulation of Diamond CARE Weight Management Formula for Adult Dogs.

Obesity is a common nutritional disorder that is associated with adverse impacts on health and well-being.

Obesity is the most common nutritional disorder in dogs.5

Obese dogs have an increased incidence of traumatic or degenerative orthopaedic disorders, neoplasia, cardiovascular and respiratory disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and skin disorders.8

Obese dogs may have less tolerance for anaesthesia and surgical procedures.8

High-fibre diets can improve satiety in dogs.

Addition of fibre in diets for dogs has been shown to decrease the total daily caloric intake, due to prolonged satiety.2

Dietary fibre may aid in obesity management and prevention by increasing and prolonging satiety, along with diminishing begging and scavenging behaviour.2

Some fermentable fibre can impact hormones that affect satiety.

Fermentable fibre from ingredients such as dried chicory root enhance satiety by impacting excretion of gastrointestinal satiety-related hormones PYY, GLP-1 and ghrelin.2

High-fibre diets lead to decrease calorie consumption.

Including fibre in the diet of dogs led to a voluntary decrease in calorie consumption over the course of the day.7

Dogs fed a high-fibre diet consumed significantly fewer calories per day when compared to dogs fed a low-fibre diet.8

High-fibre diets fed to dogs in a weight-loss program can lead not only to weight loss but also to a decreased in body fat percentage and an increase in lean body mass.

Dogs fed a low-fat, high-fibre diet lost significantly more weight than dogs fed a high-protein, high-fat diet, despite similar calorie consumption.4

Dogs fed a high-fibre diet gained lean body mass, while dogs fed a low-fibre diet lost lean body mass.8

Dogs fed a high-fibre diet had a significant loss of body fat compared to dogs that were fed a low-fibre diet.1

Supplementing high-fibre diets with L-Carnitine helps dogs achieve weight loss to reach ideal body fat percentage.8

Dogs fed a low-fat, high-fibre diet supplemented with 300 ppm L-Carnitine gained 7.1% lean body mass during a period of weight loss.6

Weight loss diets supplemented with L-Carnitine decrease fat formation and preserve muscle glycogen stores.3
