VéRUS Weight Management Brown Rice, Lamb Meal and Oats Holistic Formula offers HEALTHY WEIGHT CONTROL! Getting your pet back into healthy weight or maintaining healthy weight on a less active pet requires more than just reducing fat. Empty calories are calories present in pet foods ingredients with poor nutritional value, typically from processed grains or fillers (brewers rice, rice flour, ground wheat, etc.). They lack the accompanying micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals, fiber, and amino acids found in whole grains. Generally, these empty calories are converted to body fat. VéRUS pet foods are formulated without empty calories, making it easier for your pet to maintain healthy weight.
