Purina Veterinary Diets® OM Overweight Management® and OM Select Blend Overweight Management™ canine formulas offer dietary benefits that provide optimal nutrition while meeting your adult dog’s special needs:


Dietary Considerations

Purina Veterinary Diets® OM Overweight Management® and OM Select Blend Overweight Management™ canine formulas are weight management dog foods that provide complete and balanced nutrition for safe and effective weight loss and weight maintenance and have been formulated to achieve the following characteristics:

  • Low fat
  • Low calorie
  • Optimal level of natural fiber helps dogs feel full
  • High protein to help maintain lean body mass
  • Lite Snackers® are a perfect complement when using the OM Formula.


With our new additions to our OM lineup we’re offering the options in texture and variety that pet owners, and pets, want in a diet dog food.

Proven Results

In a groundbreaking 14-year study by Purina, dogs fed to a lean body condition throughout their lives had a median life span nearly two years longer than overweight dogs and a later onset of chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis.

It’s never too late to begin the lean-fed diet regimen on a weight loss dog food. A recent study showed osteoarthritic dogs that lost weight through diet and exercise achieved increased mobility.

Ask your veterinarian to help you score your dog’s body condition. After determining your dog’s score, you and your veterinarian can map a route to his ideal body condition and a longer, healthier life by suggesting a food specifically designed for overweight dogs.

Feeding and Administration

The following feeding program is recommended as a guideline only, with discretionary clinical adjustments for proper weight maintenance. With your veterinarian’s approval, offer increasing amounts of the new food with decreasing amounts of the old food.
