VetSpec SuperLite Low-Calorie Formula and VetSpec SuperLite Senior Formula contain 20% LESS CALORIES than normal dog food and are designed to help you keep your dog fit and healthy by controlling its weight.
Over 51% of all dogs are over-weight or obese and research shows that these dogs live up to two years shorter than fit healthy dogs of the same breed or type.
As well as a loss of 'general quality of life', obese dogs suffer from similar problems to over-weight humans including diabetes, arthritis and heart disease. Managing these health issues is a significant extra cost to you the dog owner, particularly as your dog gets older.
An independent clinical trial carried out by veterinary surgeons has demonstrated that 84% of over-weight dogs reached their ideal target weight in an average of twelve weeks when fed VetSpec SuperLite dog foods.
Importantly the volume of SuperLite food needed to achieve this is the same as normal dog food which has 20% more calories. The reduction in energy density achieved by innovative formulation and manufacturing techniques ensures that your dog does not feel as hungry as with traditional weight loss products.
As in human weight management, regular exercise is an important component in keeping your dog fit, healthy and within the right weight range for its breed and sex.
The use of wearable activity monitors has seen a dramatic growth in the human sector in the past few years and now dog activity monitors are available so you can objectively measure how much energy your dog has expended each day and how far it has moved and steps it has taken.
Trial data shows that dog owners that use activity monitors in addition to dietary foods have much more success in controlling their dog's weight and thus extending their health and wellbeing into old age.
VetSpec and pitpat have now joined forces to keep your dog Fit & Healthy.
If you’ve got a puppy, you’ll want to do the best for them. They look to you for love and affection, and for things like food and exercise that they can’t choose for themselves. Because their joints are still developing, you’ll want to make sure they don’t over-exercise.
Maybe your dog is part of the family with lots of people looking after them. But who’s done what? Has the dog been walked today? A dog activity monitor can help you keep track.
No-one likes to admit it, but some of us are a little bigger than we would like. And our furry friends are no different. A dog activity monitor can help you keep an eye on your dog's size, and take steps if you need to help them lose a few grammes. And if your dog is spot-on perfect, a monitor can help you keep them that way.
Just like us, dogs can enjoy a long and happy retirement – all the more so if they keep getting regular exercise. An activity monitor can help you with that, and it can help you spot the signs of slowing-down so that you can give them the care they need at this important time.
The pitpat dog activity monitor is the heart of everything pitpat. It sits quietly on your dog’s collar, where its three-axis accelerometer captures and records all your dog’s movements, 24×7.
The advanced “dogorithms” analyse those complex movements every 10 minutes to decide what activity your dog was doing during that period. Your pitpat can store up to 10 days-worth of your dog’s activity. Every time you press the orange “fetch data” button, all this information is sent via Bluetooth up to the free pitpat app for permanent storage, and for you to see and interact with.
