Science Says: Obesity & Pets in Canada

Two Puppies.pngSpaying or neutering can benefit your dog’s life with you in many ways. But it also increases the possibility of your dog becoming overweight or obese1 — in fact, it doubles the chance.2 Spay and neuter procedures significantly change a pet’s appetite and energy (or calorie) requirements. Choosing a diet that proactively addresses these changes can make a real difference for puppies and adult dogs alike.

VETERINARY HPM® Spay & Neuter Pet Food at a Glance

A Tale of Four Benefits

  • Nutritional balance for a feeling of fullness, energy throughout the day, appetite control and (for adults) weight management

  • Formulations for different life stages, to support the different needs of puppies’ (juniors) and adult dogs’ bodies

  • High-quality animal protein to support appetite control, a healthy metabolism, healthy growth (Junior diets) and an optimal weight (Adult diets). Animal proteins tend to be more digestible than plant proteins and contain all essential amino acids for dogs and cats, including those amino acids involved in appetite control.3-5

  • Adult weight management for all body sizes and types, with precise feeding guidelines so you know your dog is always getting the nourishment they need


Clear Labels & Feeding Guidelines

Figuring out the best combination of ingredients for a dog food can be complicated. Figuring out what’s in your dog’s food — and how much of it they need — should be simple. Take a look at our labels for precise, easy-to-understand nutrient information and feeding guidelines.


Junior & Adult Diets for Spayed or Neutered Dogs

Our Junior dog food diets are packed with nutrients that nourish healthy growth and support a healthy metabolism for your puppy’s still-developing body. And our Adult dog food formulations encourage lean muscle mass for a healthy weight. Both Junior and Adult diets prioritize the calorie contribution from proteins, with moderate fat and minimal carbohydrates, for complete, balanced nutrition that delivers the appropriate amount of calories for spayed and neutered dogs.
