Will real food make my dog or cat gain weight?

In our experience, many our customers have found that a real food diet such as the manufacturers we list in our Directory’s diet is extremely effective at helping your overweight dog to lose weight and reach an acceptable weight. It has rarely been reported that dogs have gained excessive weight on the raw food diet. In our experience, if weight gain has been reported we have found that in most instances pet parents were exceeding the recommended daily intake. If you are at all concerned about your dog being overweight or underweight, we can refer you to our veterinary partners (please see our directory) who is completely familiar with the biologically species appropriate diets.
