Pet Food for Obesity

Pet Food for Obesity

As loving pet owners, ensuring the best health and well-being of our animals is a must. One of the most common concerns facing our furry companions is obesity. However, if your dog or cat is carrying a few extra pounds, there is no need to worry. We have an answer. Evanger’s delivers a comprehensive diet that addresses obesity head on. Our solutions offer a balanced and nutritional diet, portion control, and regular exercise. Shop our pet food products.

According to the American Veterinary Association, “Reaching and maintaining a healthy weight can reduce your pet’s risk of disease and injury and gives them the best chance of a long, healthy, quality life.”

Let’s take a deeper look:

Balanced Diets for Dogs

For overweight dogs, Evanger’s advises a shift to our dry food options, including Chicken & Brown Rice, Pheasant & Brown Rice, Whitefish & Sweet Potato, or the innovative Grain-Free Chicken with Sweet Potato and Pumpkin diets. These options are not only low in fat but also rich in protein-building amino acids and essential nutrients. The introduction of canned foods, such as Duck, Chicken, Beef, Rabbit, Pheasant, Buffalo, and the new Pork varieties, complements the dry diet. This combination allows your dieting dog to shed excess weight without feeling starved, ensuring a nutritious and gentle approach to weight management.

Portion Control

While transitioning to Evanger’s diets, it’s critical to be careful of portion control. Limit the overall amount of food and treats given to prevent overeating. This systematic approach guarantees a gradual and healthy weight loss for your dog. Avoiding high-calorie snacks is equally important. By making thoughtful choices in both diet and treats, you contribute to your dog’s overall well-being.

Weight Management for Cats

Evanger’s also provides pet food solutions for cats. Obese cats can benefit from a diet change, replacing their existing meals with meat-based options like USDA Certified Organic Braised Chicken Dinner or Seafood & Caviar Dinner. We also offer EVX Restricted Diet for weight management in cats, with ingredient technologies for microbiome health for all life stages.

These options are not only low in fat but also packed with essential nutrients.


While a balanced diet is necessary, Evanger’s emphasizes the importance of exercise as a crucial component along with great nutrition. For dogs, aim for about 20 minutes of cardiovascular exercise daily. Involving your cat in playful activities including chasing toys, balls, and strings can help achieve their exercise goals. This not only contributes to your pet’s physical well-being but also strengthens the bond between you and your furry friend. Regular exercise is a cornerstone of a healthy, happy pet lifestyle.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), “Regular walking or playing with pets can decrease blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and triglyceride levels. Pets can help manage loneliness and depression by giving us companionship.”

In the fight against pet obesity, Evanger’s is your leading provider for a wide range of carefully crafted diets to address the specific needs of both dogs and cats. The emphasis on low-fat, high-nutrient options ensures a balanced and effective weight management approach. It is not just about what your pet eats but also about how much they eat and the activities they engage in. By integrating Evanger’s recommendations into your pet’s routine, you are helping to ensure a healthier and more vibrant life for your beloved companions. Choose Evanger’s for a holistic approach to pet well-being, and watch your furry friends thrive in their newfound vitality.
