K-9 Slim Down Plus contains the clinically and scientifically proven carb blocker Phase 2 pet® to safely and naturally promote weight loss by cutting starch absorption up to 75%. In a published veterinary-conducted canine trial, 15 dogs showed an average weight loss of almost 5% of their body weight over an 8 week period and an average abdominal girth reduction of 1.44 inches per dog due solely to use of Phase 2 pet starch blocker. By blocking starch carbohydrates as a source of energy, the dogs were forced to burn body fat for energy. The weight loss seen in this study was attributed to loss of fat and not loss of muscle.
This special product also contains EGCG from Green Tea extract that helps support weight loss and weight management. It helps to control appetite, boost metabolism, inhibit carbohydrate absorption, maintain insulin levels within normal ranges (which promotes the burning of fat) and supports cardiovascular health.
ChromeMate® brand Chromium Polynicotinate is a niacin-bound chromium, which research shows is a safe and bioavailable form of chromium supplementation that supports proper blood glucose levels, appetite control, building of muscle and the burning of fat.
This product is recommended to support weight loss in overweight and obese dogs, especially those with joint discomfort, dogs eating commercial foods with starch or carbohydrate additives and for those dogs fed table scraps. K-9 Slim Down Plus is a great companion product to any of our Hip & Joint products for joint support in overweight dogs.
