Soft Weight Loss
*Adult dog with optimal body weight and normal physical activity
The daily ration is based on the dog’s CURRENT bodyweight, and must be adjusted every month, or every week in the case of weight loss.
To help your pet's digestive system adapt successfully to new food, we recommend that you introduce VETERINARY HPM® gradually over a period of 5 to 7 days.
For a successful dietary transition:
VETERINARY HPM® is very palatable, but we do advise that you respect the daily rations recommended by your vet or vet nurse. Our general feeding guidelines can be found on every bag, but your vet or vet nurse can provide you with a recommendation tailored specifically to your pet.
A dog should drink 50-70ml/kg of their bodyweight each day, whilst cats should consume 60ml/kg.
With VETERINARY HPM®, thanks to its higher amount of protein compared to other dry foods, your pet will naturally consume more water. So don't be surprised if they start drinking more water than usual - that's a good thing!
VETERINARY HPM® is produced in our own factory in France, more precisely in Vauvert, close to Nîmes. This site has been producing quality pet food since 1988, and thanks to a dedicated team of veterinary surgeons and pet nutritionists, we have been able to meet the very high expectations of pet owners in terms of food quality, traceability and safety for over 30 years.
