My 10 year old beagle suffers from Diabetes Insipitus and a finicky pancreus. I needed a dogfood that was low in fat, tasted good(to a Beagle), and was nutricious. Blue's weight control accomplished all three requirements. As a bonus, my Beagle's dry skin and dandriff seems to have gone away. She feels better, is loosing unneeded "chubbiness", and is more active than she was on previous dogfoods. My family raised show dogs (Shelties & Keeshonds) for 30+ years and I recognise a great dogfood when I see it. This is a great dogfood!

Overview":This food did not help my dog reach his ideal weight. Blue Weight Control is nutrient rich, very low in fat, and uses high-quality protein sources. Unfortunately, Blue Weight Control has 444 calories per cup, which might be okay if my dog were trying to maintain a healthy weight, but he needed to lose weight. Fortunately, Blue Buffalo makes an excellent weight loss food called Blue Longevity, and the adult food has a more reasonable 353 calories per cup.

Details: My dog weighed 50 lbs. and needed to get to the maximum ideal weight for his breed --44 lbs.-- as determined by my vet and the American Kennel Club. According to several dog nutritionists, the calories a dog should consume to lose weight is computed as follows: (1)Convert his current weight in pounds to kilograms by dividing the pounds by 2.2. For my dog 50 lbs over 2.2= 22.7 (2) Multiply her weight in KG by 30. For my dog 22.7*30 is 681. (3)Add 70. In my dog's case, 681+70=751. This number represents the dog's caloric needs while on a weight loss diet, assuming the dog has no special needs, such as pregnant or whelping, being a puppy, being a toy breed, working, or living outdoors in a cold weather. The formula only is valid if the dog weighs between 5 and 99 pounds. The daily calories computed using this method were only a few calories different from my vet's recommendation, so I think it's pretty valid.

My dog loves treats, but only 10% of his daily intake--75 calories--may come from treats. The other 90% of his consumption--676 calories-- must come from dog food. The dog food must be nutrient rich, low in fat, and made with high-quality protein, all of which Blue Weight Control provides --deboned chicken is the first . (Beware: some premium dog foods list corn and biproducs as the first 2 ingredients. You ingrediantmay as well feed supermarket brands to get those ingredients.)

The reason Blue Weight Control was not a good diet food for my dog is that it has 444 calories per cup. To feed him 676 calories of dog food daily, I could only feed him 1.5 cups per day, meaning that each of two meals could only be .75 cups. This quantity is well below the feeding guideline on the bag. My My dog was miserable and begged constantly. He would even lick his empty bowl between meals. I tried feeding him green beans without butter or salt to fill his stomach, but he was not content and eventually turned his nose up at it. He would actually walk over to the bag of dog food, put his paw on it, and look at me while whining softly! Other members of my household snuck food to him because he begged so persistently, and the diet was a failure. My dog ended up actually gaining weight from all the snacks!
I was happy when I found Blue Longevity adult food. It has 355 per cup. I give my dog 2 cups per day and reduced his treats to 40 calories per day. Just that half cup increase in food has reduced my dog's begging. The dog food is be nutrient rich, fairly low in fat, and made with high-quality protein, with white herring as the first ingrediant. If for some reason you are looking for low-fat rather than low-calory, Blue Weight Control is a better option.

        For my 7-year-old Siberian Husky who really loves her food. She gets enough to satisfy her appetite while keeping her trim figure, and I know that she is getting excellent nutrition. Just wish the price hadn't gone up at the same time the bag size went down.

        My pup has heart disease & must keep his weight down. He will leave his food in the bowl all day; if I throw it like a treat, he eats it fine. I guess the attention outweighs the taste to him.
        I'm just glad he's getting the nutrients he needs.
