Theo the dog's new lease on life, thanks to #HillsPet *SPONSORED*

Once upon a time there was a dog named Theo.

Theo the pug mix was living with a Humane Society when a nice lady named Beth found him. He was a little overweight (38 pounds), but Beth loved him anyway and decided to take him home.

Beth, who runs a blog called DailyDogTag.com, wanted to help him lose weight so he could live a better life. So she put him on a diet for dogs. But while Theo lost weight, he wasn't happy.

"He was miserable with the reduced food intake and began counter surfing (we have one low counter)and stealing wrappers from the trash," Beth said "He also became snappy in trying to get the food from the other dogs."

So when Beth heard about Hills Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution, she went to her vet and asked. The vet signed off on it, and Theo was trying a new food, just like that.

 See, Hill's new prescription diet food is designed so that the dogs feel full. The food is designed to increase the metabolism and burn fat, which keeping pets feeling full. There's a dry food, a canned food and treats.

"The most important part of the system to me is that Theo seems to be satisfied during the day," Beth said. "He isn't constantly looking for food or whining for food."

Theo so far has lost over a pound on the new food.

He is also enjoying his walks more now, Beth said.

Theo's story is not over. He still has another pound to go. But Beth is happy so far. And soon they will live happily ever after.

Cheer Theo on at Beth's blog, the Daily Dog Tag.

Theo's not the only dog who has seen progress on Hill's Metabolic Advanced Weight Solution.

This is Kahlua. Karen is one of my Life With Beagle followers and she won a trial pack for the Hill's Advanced Weight Solution food.

This is Kahlua a month later, and Karen is pointing to the waist indentation that has since appeared since she started on the food. Karen said Kahlua has lost at least a pound since starting on the food. Kahlua is not huge fan of the dry food, but she likes the canned food and treats.
