Make a New Year's Resolution To Help Your Pet Lose Weight With Alison Sweeny-- Chance to Win $1,000,000



Alison Sweeney and the millions of owners that struggle to help their pets shed pounds now have a simple and effective solution.  Introducing the Hill’s® Science Diet® Weight Loss System – the first pre-packaged meal and biscuit plan that eliminates the guess work of feeding the right portions to help dogs lose weight in just 30 days.  

 “Making sure that my family leads a healthy and active lifestyle is very important so I was really upset to find out that my dog Winky was overweight,” said Alison Sweeney.  “But helping Winky lose weight was so easy with the Hill’s® Science Diet® Weight Loss System.  After just one month I could see a difference in Winky and she was even outlasting the entire family on long walks around the neighborhood.” 

Winky is back on track to being a healthy, active dog but there are still an estimated 51.5% of dogs and cats in the United States that are either overweight or obese[1].  That’s why Alison Sweeney is asking America to make a New Year’s resolution to help pets lose weight and take the 2011 Hill’s PetFit™ Challenge.

To enter, owners should schedule a weight consultation with their veterinarian and inquire about a Hill’s® Science Diet® weight management food that is right for their pet’s needs.  Then visit www.petfit.com from January 1 through March 31 and share their success story for a chance to win a trip to New York City to meet Alison Sweeney or take home up to $1,000,000.  

In addition, www.petfit.com offers pet owners access to the Hill’s Weight Management Center for free cat and dog weight loss tools that include:

·         Interactive body conditioning scoring that shows the proper body shape of a cat or dog

·         Five extra pounds on a medium size cat like an American Shorthair is the equivalent of nearly 37 pounds on an average woman
·         Two extra pounds on a small size cat like a Siamese is the equivalent of nearly 25 pounds on an average woman

Treat Translator
·         If you feed a 20lb dog one ounce of cheddar cheese it’s the equivalent of a 5’4” woman eating one and a half hamburgers or one chocolate bar
·         If you feed a 10lb cat one cup of milk it’s the equivalent of a 5’4” woman eating four and a half hamburgers or five chocolate bars
