Healthy Weight Protocol

Healthy Weight Protocol, breakthrough approach to diagnosing and managing weight problems

Hill’s Healthy Weight Protocol is clinically proven to more accurately predict ideal body composition in overweight dogs and cats.

How it works:

Developed and validated in partnership with veterinarians at the University of Tennessee, the Hill’s Healthy Weight Protocol accurately determines ideal weight, body fat percentage, and provides a customized feeding plan. The Hill’s Healthy Weight Protocol is completed in two easy steps using current weight and a few simple body measurements.


Step 1: Weigh the patient and take morphometic body measurements.

Step 2: Use the Hill’s Healthy Weight Protocol e-tool to accurately determine body fat percentage and get a customised feeding plan for your patient.

Use the resources below to accurately measure pets and make a hard conversation easy to ensure healthy weight for a lifetime.
