Spayed & Neutered Pets Need Special Food

Puppy and Kitten.pngToday, nearly 70% of Canadian dogs and cats are spayed or neutered. That gives them many advantages, including medical and behavioural benefits. Unfortunately, pets that have been spayed or neutered are also at a much higher risk for becoming obese:

Cats are three to four times as likely to become obese after the procedure.2

After a pet is spayed or neutered, there are changes that occur within their body. First, spayed and neutered pets have a reduced calorie need. Second, with the removal of sex hormones, spayed and neutered dogs and cats have an increased appetite. This means, that spayed and neutered pets feel like they should eat more, but actually require less. It's a recipe for weight gain over time.


Spay and neuter procedures significantly change a pet's appetite and energy requirements for the rest of their lives. Choosing a diet that proactively addresses these changes can make a real difference for your pet.


Your pet is special. Always. And so is the care you give them. Always.

Precise feeding guidelines for specific body weights show you how much food your pet needs daily. Junior (puppy and kitten) guidelines use pet weight and age to determine how much to feed. Adult guidelines offer options geared toward whether your pet is currently at an ideal weight, is prone to weight gain or is overweight.
