Overweight cats with real life weight loss stories #HillsPet

Overweight cats and dogs are achieving weight loss with Hill’s Metabolic Advanced Weight Solutions!  People all over the United States are seeing real results in the real world.  This week, I will be sharing Tammie Pankuch’s real life success story of Harley. [Tweet “Overweight cats and dogs are achieving weight loss with Hill’s Metabolic Advanced Weight Solutions!”]

Harley is a five-year old, female, half Siamese/ half Domestic Shorthair cat.  Before starting on Hill’s Metabolic Advanced Weight Solutions, Harley weighed 18.3 pounds. 

Tammie noticed about 3 months ago that Harley was playing less and she was having trouble keeping herself clean, especially in the hind end.  Although Tammie did not want to face that her overweight cat was having difficulties, she did the right thing and took Harley to her veterinarian for a comprehensive physical examination and nutritional consultation.  Her veterinarian confirmed Tammie’s fears that Harley was 8 pounds overweight.  The veterinarian recommend Hill’s Metabolic Advanced Weight Solutions for cats

Tammie’s veterinarian informed her that while eating Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution, an obese pet’s metabolism changes to act more like that of a lean pet.  It helps to speed up metabolism and to help your pet feel full and satisfied while burning fat at the same time.  The best news of all, 88% of pets in a veterinarian supervised in-house study lost weight.

It’s very important, especially in overweight cats, to gradually transition to the new food. 


Harley loved the taste of the new food and actually stopped eating her normal dry food the overweight catsday after they started her on the Hill’s Metabolic Advanced Weight Solutions.  Tammie and her husband were very surprised by how well she adapted to the new diet.  In fact, Tammie said it was “super easy” and she did not feel bad or that she was depriving Harley.  I’m happy to report that Harley is well on her way to a long, happy healthy life and has already lost 2.3 pounds since starting on the diet.

Dr. Anna was born and raised in Guthrie, Oklahoma. As a teenager, Dr. Anna found her beloved pet dead on the side of the road left to die without any help. That was the moment she decided to become a vet and vowed to help other people and their pets. After a few years of practicing in New Hampshire, Dr. Anna became homesick and decided to return to Guthrie to be with her parents and five other siblings. Family and friends are a major part of our lives which is why we treat our clients at Guthrie Pet Hospital as family.  Dr. Anna and her husband do not have children but are very proud pet parents and therefore, treat every four-legged friend as part of the family.
