3 Great Reasons Why You Need WAGSTA Today

2yrs Reduced Life Expectancy

When your dog is overweight, unhealthy or inactive, their life expectancy reduces by 2 years (that's 14 doggy years!) Improvements to dog weight and wellness can add these years right back on!

100s of Serious Health Effects

There are hundreds of serious health effects brought on by weight gain, including early onset arthritis, respiratory illness, diabetes, heat stroke, skin disorders and many more. Read all about it on the WAGSTA Blog.

$1000s in Veterinary Bills

Weight Gain and an inactive lifestyle can result in very expensive, but preventable, Vet Costs. Heat Stroke could cost between $300-$2000, while Knee Ligament Repair could cost you over $5000! Check out our Weight Gain Infographics.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much time do I need to dedicate to my dog’s weight program?

Diet Plan Prep: After sign up, please set aside an hour to complete your dog’s profile, feeding and activity questionnaires. An additional half hour should be sufficient for recording your dog’s initial weight and measurements.

During your preparation, you will be guided in how to portion and select a suitable diet food for your dog. You will need to factor in time to source and introduce your dog to their diet food (recommended 4 days).

During the program aim to set aside a minimum of 20 minutes per day to visit and update your task area, read activity sheets and converse with coaches and community via the private members’ group. If you have longer to spare- great!

Activity – at program commencement we start with 2 x 10 minute dog activity sessions per day. By the end of 12 weeks this will have grown to 2 x 30 minute activity sessions per day (dog walking, play and off-leash activity.) These sessions may be condensed into single daily walks.

Is this program suitable for my dog?

WAGSTA Wellness plans are suitable for all breeds of dog and all levels of mobility.

(However our dog diet plans are not suitable for pregnant or lactating dogs or for dogs aged less than 1 year, or less than 18 months if a giant breed).

We recommend all canine participants receive a general health check by a veterinarian prior to commencing their weight management program. This can help confirm your dog’s idea weight and rule out any health factors contributing to your dog’s weight gain.

WAGSTA Wellness weight management plans and calorie restricted diet programs have been developed in accordance with professional veterinary research principles: AAHA Weight Management Guidelines for Dogs and Cats.

Do I need specialized food for this program?

For best rates of success, we encourage canine participants be fed a commercialized “diet or light food” or “weight loss” formulation for their entire weight loss program. Selection of a suitable diet food for your dog is addressed as part of your program induction.

WAGSTA Support and WAGSTA VIP plans provide access to pet nutritionist-formulated diet food recipes. These recipes are suitable for those who are experienced in home-cooking for their dog.

How long will it take my dog to reach their target weight?

WAGSTA wellness program aim for canine participants to achieve 1-3 % body weight loss per week- in line with professional veterinary weight loss guidelines.

Your dog’s starting body condition score will determine their length of weight loss period. Dogs in the upper obese range i.e BCS scores of 8 or 9, will take upwards of 6 months to achieve their healthy target weight.

With strict adherence to our dog weight loss program the follow weight loss figures can be achieved over the course of 12- 16 weeks:

  • Starting weight of 50 kg (110 lb) – lose 5.7-15 kg (12.6-33 lb)
  • Starting weight of 40 kg (88 lb) – lose 4.1-12.3 kg (9-27 lb)
  • Starting weight of 30 kg (66 lb) – lose 3.5-9.2 kg (7.7-20 lb)
  • Starting weight of 20 kg (44 lb) – lose 2.4-5.3 kg (5.3-11.7 lb)
  • Starting weight of 10 kg (22 lb) – lose 1.3-4.4 kg (2.9-9.7 lb)
  • Starting weight of 5 kg (11 lb) – lose 600 g-1.5 kg (1.3-3.3 lb)

Is this program suitable for dogs who cannot exercise e.g. due to injury, disability?

Our programs are suitable for all levels of mobility. If your dog is unable to participate in our activity schedule, canine weight loss can be managed through calorific restriction alone. This is particularly relevant for dogs waiting for joint or orthopedic surgery pending weight loss.

We have three activity programs available, suitable for varying breeds and levels of mobility and fitness.

Maxo's Makeover
From Maxi To Mini

Maxo's transformation has been central to the creation of WAGSTA. After finding a home with WAGSTA's founder, Maxo quickly highlighted the daily challenges face by pet parents when doggy dieting. Whether it be bin raiding, stealing food from toddlers or scavenging fruit from trees, you name it, Maxo did it!

Despite these challenges Maxo successfully lost 16 kgs (45 lbs) in 6 months - replacing lameness, lethargy, over-heating and itchy skin, with a life of health, vitality and play!

Are you ready to follow Maxo's lead?

"Delta has dropped from 68 to 56 lbs. She has also rediscovered that she can jump on the bed again! This program has been the one thing I've been able to put my hands on that has finally given me the incentive to manage Delta's weight. I feel so much better at night knowing Delta is a healthy weight."

"We rescued overweight 6-year-old Labrador, Summer who suffered from arthritis, over-heating and general poor health. The most helpful advice for us was pet food nutritional contents (an eye-opener!) Summer lost 10.4kg on the program is now a happy, healthy and active 7-year-old dog.""

Summer

"Overall Gyp has lost about 13 pounds which is fabulous! Because my husband and I are very active and take our dogs on hikes and runs almost daily, we always thought he could burn off the extra weight through exercise - but after having done WAGSTAs weight plan we have learned that it is not the case."
