Meet Piper – Biggest Loser Contestant

Day One

Day One

Piper is an 8-year-old Shih  Tzu who has been on Hill’s w/d weight reduction diet for several years now without results.  His owners have been cautious with what “extras” he gets and still the weight has not come off.  In March of 2011 Piper weighed 8 kg (17.6 lbs) now in May of 2013 he weighs 8.5 kg (18.7 lbs).  His owner wants him to have better health for the rest of his lifetime so was happy to hear about the new metabolic diet, she also plans to go for long walks, give low calorie treats and stick to the diet plan to help Piper reach his ideal weight of 4.4 kg (9.7 lbs).

When asked to describe Piper she says he is an easy-going, lovable little guy who lives with 3 other pets.  He is calm and friendly and is a great demo dog with obedience training.  He has a few favourite toys; a softie ball and a sock tied in a knot… really he likes anything soft.  His owner tells us he also enjoys going for his walks.

Good luck Piper!
