Good for weight loss7th May 2013
- VioVet Customer Since: July 2008
- From: Norfolk, United Kingdom
My mini daxsie was carrying a lot of extra weight and this food really helped get it off as well as fill her up in the process. Only negative quite pricey but you are not on them for life so worth buying.
