Weight Management

Some companies make low calorie dog food by simply adding fiber and fillers to their regular formulas. Not Precise®. Our Weight Management Formula has no fillers. It’s specially formulated with high quality ingredients like real chicken meal and whole grains, plus added L-Carnitine to help the body utilize fat as energy while maintaining lean muscle mass. So while it has 30% less calories and 40% less fat than our Precise Naturals® Chicken Meal & Rice Foundation Formula, it’s still premium nutrition that’s more digestible than many other reduced calorie formulas. It’s just what your dog needs to get to and maintain a healthier weight.
