Turkey, Brown Rice & Venison Recipe Questions
Why is Rachael Ray Nutrish Turkey, Brown Rice & Venison Recipe good for overweight dogs?
This is good for overweight dogs due to the overall lean recipe – which contains roughly only 9% fat as opposed to the typical 15% found in adult maintenance recipes – and the particular benefits of the various ingredients. Brown rice, peas, cranberries, and carrots all are high in fiber, which helps your dog feel fuller, while the real turkey helps maintain lean muscle mass. The real venison helps further by keeping your dog feeling full and satisfied, while helping maintain healthy energy levels.
Remember to check your dog’s weight regularly. Slow, steady weight loss is ideal (losing between 1-2% of their body weight per week). If your dog does not lose weight or loses more than 12% of body weight within 4 weeks, talk to your veterinarian about the amount of food you’re feeding. Once the target weight is achieved, switch to Maintenance feeding.
As with any weight management program, this formula works best when used with exercise. We recommend working with your veterinarian to develop a healthy exercise that’s right for you and your dog.
Why is Rachael Ray Nutrish Turkey, Brown Rice & Venison Recipe good for metabolism?This product is good for metabolism due to having good, lean protein sources, like US farm-raised Turkey. Also, the inclusion of L-Carnitine, a naturally-occurring amino acid that’s known to help turn fat into energy to support a healthy metabolism.
If I was feeding Rachael Ray Nutrish Healthy Weight Real Turkey & Veggies Recipe, can I now feed the new Turkey, Brown Rice and Venison Recipe?
Yes! Rachael Ray Nutrish Turkey, Brown Rice and Venison is designed to fulfil the same needs of Rachael Ray Nutrish Healthy Weight Real Turkey & Veggies Recipe – where both are lean recipes containing only 9% fat and designed to help with weight issues. However, we feel that the new product is better designed to help with not only weight issues, but also to better help achieve an overall active and healthy life, all through carefully-selected ingredient additions, such as Venison for feeling full and satisfied and helping maintain healthy energy levels, and Cranberries, which add more fiber and are great sources of essential vitamin and minerals.
When switching, remember to mix Rachael Ray Nutrish Turkey, Brown Rice and Venison Recipe with his/her previous food over a five to ten day period until your dog is solely eating the new diet. Lastly, we always recommend consulting a vet for any concerns or questions regarding switching food or when putting your pet on a diet.
