The metabolic diet uses a high quality protein with a lower calorie balance to assist a pet in weight loss. The protein based diet is less efficient in digestion so the body burns more energy. Additionally the body releases less insulin with primarily protein intake so your dog will not be as hungry.
These diets are a huge improvement over the high fiber diets for weight loss. Most dogs should get to their target weight over the course of 8 to 12 months in most cases.
As always management of treats is critical.
