REMINDER: If you use Purina products, please continue to clip weight circles from bags of participating Purina brand dog foods. This program is very beneficial to SCD and can help greatly with vet bills. It also helps to fund for cardio research.

Look for a weight circle like this on participating Purina® products.

Yes it is. He was having a lot of loose stools so I had to search for another food (he was on Merrick's Cowboy Cookout). Melissa has Raz, Kona & Peri on the Pro Plan and it helped eliminate their loose stools.

My 2 were having problems with loose stools too, but this was because of the change in the Canidae formula. This is no longer an issue, but Cocoa has developed some skin issues so this is why I decided to switch over to the sensitive formula. They both really like it! If I stick with the Pro Plan, I'll be able to save the weight circles for Arda.

Purina allows us 8 points per pound for them. 50,000 points and they send our vet $500. It comes in darn handy at this time of the year. 50 lbs X 8 = 400 points. It's an old breeder program I have belonged to since the early 1970's.

Will weight circles from CAT food and litter work? We have a client that I was saving the rings from milk jugs for her cats I guess they love to bat them around the house so she gave me the weight circles she saves.
