Pets Resolve to 'Get Off On the Right Paw' in 2010 With a Healthy, Natural Diet and Exercise
Date:12/22/2009

TEWKSBURY, Mass., Dec. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- We all do it at the holidays. Overindulge, that is; on eggnog, cookies, candy and holiday buffet fare even though we know it's not good for us. And it's hard not to do the same with our four-legged, furry companions. The advent of the New Year is the perfect time to resolve to achieve a healthier lifestyle for our pets, according to the experts at Wellness® Natural Food and Snacks for Pets.

"Just as for people, eating right and getting exercise are fundamental to a pet's health," said Dr. Edward Moser, VMD, consulting veterinary nutritionist for Wellness. "Minding the ingredients and amount of food that your pet consumes, along with increasing their activity levels, will help the pounds come off and stay off."

Why is optimal weight so important for your pet? An unhealthy weight can lead to disease, arthritis, skin and ear infections, among other issues. And an overweight pet's deficiencies are carried down to their puppies or kittens, which can jeopardize their health as well. The 2008 Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP) National Pet Obesity Study reports more pets than ever are overweight or obese: over 44% of dogs and 57% of cats.

Pet owners who want to feed their dogs and cats only the best quality food can trust that Wellness has carefully selected exceptional, authentic ingredients. Its recipes are designed to naturally help solve a number of the most challenging health problems.

For overweight cats, Wellness Healthy Weight is just the remedy. Along with increasing activity levels and instituting a controlled eating plan, this special lower calorie recipe is formulated to help cats lose the weight. It also includes guaranteed levels of glucosamine & chondroitin to support overburdened hips and joints.

For dogs, Wellness SuperMix5® Healthy Weight is specially formulated with a satisfying, low-calorie blend of ingredients to help less active dogs maintain a healthy body weight and lose those extra pounds. This unique recipe provides complete nutrition and satisfies dogs' appetites with increased fiber, 16% less fat, and 11% less calories than Super5Mix Complete Health, along with guaranteed levels of glucosamine & chondroitin.

And even though we're watching our dogs and cats' waistlines, they still deserve an occasional snack in moderation. Dog and cat lovers can feel good about sharing WellBites®, Pure Rewards® and WellBars® for dogs and Pure Delights® for cats. All are packed with nutritious ingredients like pure meat, fresh fruits, healthy grains (grain-free options too) and beneficial supplements. Perfectly balanced to complement their regular diets, Wellness snacks feature the tastes cats and dogs crave most. Health conscious, responsible and loving consumers know that rewarding their pets with Wellness snacks will ensure health, happiness and well-being to the animals who depend upon them.

At Wellness we're dedicated to helping cats and dogs achieve "True Wellness," and that means looking at their overall health in addition to their diets. We recommend long walks and lots of play time to help pets shed pounds and stay fit and healthy all year long.

Wellness foods and snacks are available nationwide in pet specialty shops and natural food stores in a variety of sizes and flavors. To find an authorized Wellness retailer, please visit www.wellnesspetfood.com.
