Can a high fiber food help your dog lose weight?
Healthy Weight

Yes. While fiber is an important nutrient in every dog’s diet, dietary fiber is also beneficial for weight management.

High Fiber for Weight Loss

Because fiber contributes bulk to a diet without adding calories, it helps dogs feel fuller longer after a meal. It can also mean that your dog reaches satiety while consuming fewer calories.

What sources of fiber does Purina use?

In Purina’s weight management and therapeutic weight loss diets, we rely on sources that contain higher amounts of insoluble fiber than those in our maintenance diets, like cellulose and soy hulls.

Purina dog foods are nutritionally balanced for each dog’s life stage. Working with your veterinarian and choosing the right food for the life stage of your dog and following the feeding guidelines are the first steps toward keeping him within a healthy weight range.
