Tilly the Westie makes the Naturo Change

You may recognise our beautiful girl, Tilly the Westie from her travel column, ‘Tilly’s Travel’ in Dog Friendly magazine or, perhaps you follow her on Twitter (@TillytheWestie). She also has a chapter all about her in Janetta Harvey’s book, ‘Saving One More’. Like Janetta’s dogs, Twinkle and the late Suzie-Belle, Tilly is a puppy farm survivor.

In 2012, Tilly was found a stray in London with another Westie in an equally poor condition. Their coats were matted and their teeth were green. We don’t know how long Tilly lived as a stray before being taken to the pound, and rescued by The Little Dog Rescue charity, but we do know that she has a voracious appetite and is always on the look-out for food.

Tilly cares not a jot for cuddly toys and has only a passing interest in balls (unless you squeak them): for her, it’s all about the food. Unsurprisingly, as a result, she’s always been a bit overweight.

She was quite heavy when she came to live with us and, through exercise and managing her diet we got her weight down a bit but, then her weight plateaued and she didn’t lose any more. The vet said she still needed to lose some more.

Knowing how much Tilly loved Naturo natural dog food – particularly the one with Salmon and rice, when I saw that Naturo did a wet food with 40% less fat, I decided to make the switch. I was hopeful that it might help Tilly lose that bit more weight.

Thankfully, Tilly enjoyed the Naturo Light Chicken and Rice with Vegetables just as much as the other Naturo flavours she’d tried. I realised we could be onto a winner in terms of an easy way to help her lose weight.
