How much weight can I expect my dog to lose on the WAGSTA Wellness diet program?

WAGSTA Wellness programs aim for canine participants to achieve 1-3 % body weight loss per week. This is in line with professional veterinary weight loss guidelines.

With strict adherence to our dog weight loss program the follow weight loss figures can be achieved over the course of your first 4 months:

  • Starting weight of 50 kg (110 lb) – lose 5.7-15 kg (12.6-33 lb)
  • Starting weight of 40 kg (88 lb) – lose 4.1-12.3 kg (9-27 lb)
  • Starting weight of 30 kg (66 lb) – lose 3.5-9.2 kg (7.7-20 lb)
  • Starting weight of 20 kg (44 lb) – lose 2.4-5.3 kg (5.3-11.7 lb)
  • Starting weight of 10 kg (22 lb) – lose 1.3-4.4 kg (2.9-9.7 lb)
  • Starting weight of 5 kg (11 lb) – lose 600 g-1.5 kg (1.3-3.3 lb)

For dogs in the upper obese range (Body Condition Score 8 or 9) it will likely take 6- 12 months to achieve healthy target weights.

Continued membership and diet support is recommended until your dog has achieved their healthy weight and has transitioned onto their maintenance diet.
