Product details

Hill's Science Plan Canine Adult Light Chicken is a complete balanced food tailored to dogs that are prone to weight gain.

How it works

Hill’s Science Plan Canine Light Adult uses a tested balance of fibres and nutrients to help your dog maintain a healthy weight. This formula replaces digestible calories with indigestible fibre to increase the bulk of the food and reduce your pet’s hunger cravings.

Compared to regular dog food, Canine Adult light has 40% less fat and 18% less calories making it perfect for dogs who are less active. It uses a tailored combination of antioxidants and L-carnitine that are clinically proven to turn fat into energy. This helps to reduce fatty deposits and with it, your pet’s weight.

Hill’s dry food has a wholesome flavour to entice your pet, so they won’t notice the difference between this and their usual food.

Key benefits

  • 40% less fat and 18% fewer calories than regular dog food
  • replaces digestible calories with indigestible fibres, helping to control hunger between meals
  • combination of antioxidants and L-carnitine is clinically proven to turn fat into energy
  • appealing chicken flavour that your dog will love.

When to use it

If your dog is prone to putting on weight, Hill’s Science Plan Canine Light Adult can help them maintain a healthy weight. Using a calorie-controlled formula, it’s perfect for adult dogs that are less active.

Dogs who have been neutered or older dogs tend to have less energy for play and so don’t burn off calories efficiently. If this is the case, your pet needs fewer calories and a higher fibre content to keep them satisfied between meals. Hill’s formula offers the perfect balance of nutrients and fibre.

If your dog gains weight easily, Hill’s formula can replace their regular food to help them maintain an ideal weight. The amount of food given depends on your pet’s weight and height. Check feeding guidelines for the ideal amount and consult your vet if you have any concerns.

Feeding The Correct Amount

It is important to remember however that these figures are guidelines only, and there are several factors to be taken into account when assessing your pet’s nutritional requirements : -

  1. Activity level
  2. Temperament (stressed animals burn off more calories than relaxed ones)
  3. Metabolism (every animal is an individual with his or her own speed of metabolism; this means that 2 dogs of the same age, breed and weight could have different daily calorie requirements)

In order to provide the correct portions when feeding your dog or cat, it is also helpful to assess your pet’s appetite, visual appearance and stools. Whilst poo watching does not sound particularly pleasant, it is one of the best indicators of health. Increased frequency of passing faeces, production of large quantities of stools of loose motions are often frequent signs that an animal is receiving more food than he or she requires.

It is important to obtain an accurate weight for your cat or dog, and also to weigh out the food. Guessing on both accounts gives a large margin of error.

Changing Food Brands

For a successful diet change, we recommend following the feeding pattern below. The daily feeding amount should be split into two equal amounts and the proportions of new food increased over the first week as illustrated.

TOP TIPS: For those dogs who do not make eating a priority, here are some additional points:
- Reduce the number of tit-bits given during the introductory period
- If your dog has been used to eating wet food, moisten with warm water.

  • Dog food
    My dog has been on hills since a pup us to buy from vets but a lot cheaper on here and a lot easier than lugging a 12kg bag about.

  • Amazing!!! the price is amazing too on the website, much cheaper than pets at home! my puppy is now 5months,a black Labrador, and his coat shines as never before, i always get compliments of how gorgeous he looks. of course i really give him only the guided amount of dry food, nothing else, (except apples which he loves, and carrots) :)

  • Having enjoyed puppy Large Breed for his first year, H is now moving up a level. A healthy coat, good teeth and a happy dog are testament to the mix, which I would award 5.

    As always the food is well packaged, but when ordering on-line from Petsupermarket be aware that the delivery can and usually does, take 10 days to arrive. 5 working days for despatch and another 5 for YODEL to deliver it to the door. Of course you could pay to have it arrive more quickly!

  • I have 2x11 week old labrador puppies who love and are thriving on this food. Hill`s was the food my puppies were fed on when we got them a week ago and was advised to keep them on it, which I am more than happy to do. I would definitely recommend buying from Pet Supermarket I couldn`t believe how fast the delivery was. I ordered at 3:30pm Friday and received AM Monday, I`m amazed! I will certainly buy this and other items from you again, very soon. A big thankyou from a very happy customer and 2 happy pup
