Don't Tell My Master That I Love Hills Prescription Diet r/d Canine Weight Loss-Low Calorie

Hi everyone at Lunch.com, my name is Snickers, my master is Badbonz007. He does not know that I can type but I just want to rat him out. I am an overweight couch potato, I am a 9 year old miniature schnauzer and I weigh about 25 pounds, with a very voluptuous figure. My master just thinks that I am getting old, but I am just taking advantage of his good nature, by batting my long eyelashes at him when he looks at me. He buys me all kinds of tasty treats, and several different types that make my mouth water. I also have my mistress wrapped around my little paw, she lets me sleep right next to her and I am always taking over my masters side of the bed, by doing some fake snoring. A lot of times I snuggle right up to her back and she tucks me in and away to dream land I go.

Then all of a sudden something changed, my master took me to the Vets and that is when the treats stopped and we started going out for walks twice a day. My master even changed my food to some stuff called "r/d Hills Prescription Diet Food", from an automatic feeder, to portioning out what I get to eat every day. This made me a little grumpy and I showed my appreciation by snapping at my other four legged family members. Every time they would get a little close, I would just let them have it and would give them a rap on the behind. I have found that by doing this it works every time, my mistress would pay attention to me a little more and she would ask, if my master had fed me my evening meal. From what I could tell, this food is good for me, but I preferred the junk food taste over this peanut shell taste.

I know that if I did not eat when my master put this out for me he would get a little testy with me and he is not as nice as my mistress is. She will feel sorry for me and does not care what time that I eat my meals. My master on the other hand, has me on a tight schedule and that bugs the heck out of me. I used to be able to lie around and just eat when I wanted to, but not no more. I can feel my girlish figure coming back, but at what cost. I'll bet that the price of this food is eating away at my master's wallet. I know that some day when I get my figure back that I can start eating my junk food diet again. I tried to just sit there and stare at it the first couple of days but my master just picked up my food bowl and said "well, you will get hungry by the morning". My master also tried to put this food into a shiny new  stainless steel bowl to bribe me with. I tried to hold my ground but my tummy was telling me different, so he won this round, and I began to eat when he put the food at the scheduled times.

Description and Ingredients
This food is light brown in color and has a slight pleasant odor to it. These are about ½" in diameter and will fill you up in a flash. My sensitive tongue tells me that this has theseingredients inside of this food: whole grain corn, corn gluten meal, chicken by product meal, soybean mill run, powdered cellulose, soybean meal, chicken liver flavor, dried beet pulp, lactic acid, soybean oil, caramel color, DL-Methionine, L-Lysine, potassium chloride, vitamin E supplement, choline chloride, vitamins (L-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (a source of vitamin C) niacin, thiamine mononitrate, vitamin A supplement, calcium panthenate, biotin, vitamin B12 supplement, pyridozine hydrochloride, riboflavin, folic acid, vitamin D3 supplement), calcium carbonate, iodized salt, minerals (manganese sulfate, ferrous sulfate, zinc oxide, copper sulfate, calcium iodate, sodium selenite), taurine, L-Carnitine, preserced with mixed tocopherols and citric acid, phosphoric acid, beta carotene, rosemary extract.

My nose also tells me that the Guaranteed Analysis of this food is: minimum 28% crude protein, minimum 6.5% crude fat, maximum 9.0% crude fat, maximum 16.0% crude fiber, maximum 11.0% moisture, maximum 7.0% ash, minimum of 0.5% calcium, minimum of 0.4% phosphorus, minimum of 400 iu/kg vitamin E, minimum 85 mg of ascorbic acid, minimum of 200 ppm carnitine.  This also contains 10.4% powdered cellulose, which is a good source of fiber.

Experience
Ever since I started eating this food I have been losing about a pound every week. So far I have lost 3 pounds in three weeks. If you were to purchase the lite dog food that is sold in the regular grocery stores, they only knock the calories down 15%. But, with this dog food the calories are knocked down 40% and that it is made of crushed peanuts shells as a filler. This does not smell anything like peanuts, but is does fill me up. My figure is slowly getting back to normal, but don't tell my master. He is relentless and is still purchasing this from the Vets. I thought that since we lived to far away from the Vets that he would go back to purchasing the other junk food type dog foods. But, that was not to be. I love my master dearly but why did he wait so long to start to worry about my figure.  This food has given a lot more energy, but don't tell my master that I really like this food. Every now and again I will just sit there and have to be invited to eat my meal, just to let my master  think that I don't like this food.

This food is clinically proven to improve the quality of my life but I do not want my master to stop treating me with kid gloves. May be there is something to this weight loss and low calorie food. The nutrition will reduce my body fat by 22% in a couple of months. This has a higher L-Carnitine to help me burn more fat and maintain my muscle. This also helps me with the antioxidants for my immune system, and with all of my growling stomach this food fills me up a lot quicker.

Conclusion
This has a 100% money back guarantee, but my master will never ever be able to use it because I keep eating it all up. Also, this is available only through your Vet. You have to have a prescription to purchase. This also comes in cans just in case you like moist dog food. Now that I am starting to get my figure back I do notice that the neighborhood dogs do look at me with a smile as I walk down the street. They bark an me telling me to come over and play. My master thinks that I love going out for a walk in 100° weather, but what I really like is the air conditioned house and my four paws stretched up in the air. While relaxing and chewing on a rawhide bone. But, all of that has gone to the way side with the purchase of this new diet dog food from "Hills". For the most part this tastes great and I am grateful for the attention that my master gives me. But, I kind of miss the good ole days of sniffing butts and eating nasty tasting turds out in the yard. But, what the heck at least I still have air conditioning and my comfy bed to sleep in, and my master has not figured how to get my pried away from my mistresses back. I love this food and give it a five star for taste and the ability to help me lose weight.
