Please note the recipe is exactly the same , the only thing we have changed is the name. Whilst it was never our intention to make dogs fat unfortunately calling the recipe FAT BOY has led to some confusion and in some sectors it’s been totally misunderstood. FAT BOY is a very serious recipe that address’s a very serious problem which other companies have shied away from , concentrating on recipe’s to help dogs lose weight as opposed to FAT BOY which has been specifically designed to help dogs that struggle to maintain a healthy weight due to numerous reasons. This is a very serious and stressful condition that affects many dogs and incredibly upsetting for the owners which is one of the reasons that led to us developing the FAT BOY formula.
FAT BOY was first brought to the market in May 2011 , until then there was no dry complete kibble available in the UK that had been specifically designed to help the many dogs suffering from this condition. Since then FAT BOY has been able to help literally thousands of dogs to gain and maintain their optimum weight and condition bringing great relief to there owners and continues to do so under the re-branding of “ULTIMATE WEIGHT GAIN“.
GSD 2000 Rescue & Re-home became a registered charity in January 2000. Operating mainly in the South West, Southern Counties, Midlands and South Wales, our charity is working to help alleviate the suffering and distress of unwanted, abandoned or badly-treated German Shepherd Dogs.
We took in a 7 months old puppy who was one of the worst cases of neglect and abuse we have seen. Kept in a shed with no space for toilet or play and little contact with the outside world, he was finally removed and came to us. Weighing just 14.3 kg, he was severely underdeveloped with poor coat, loose stools and behavioural issues. We tried several feeds with limited weight gain before coming across Ultimate Weight Gain. We thought it worth a try and have never looked back.
Starting on four small regular feeds, the weight gain after five weeks is amazing. He is now 24 kg, on three feeds a day, has great muscle tone, solid stools and in great health. At 10 months he is unrecognisable from the puppy we took in. We believe Fat Boy, along with hydrotherapy, exercise and lots of love and care, has enabled these fantastic results.
This young boy is not ready for re-homing yet as he is still undergoing rehabilitation. However we do have other dogs available on our website.
Total Pet Nutrition – Ultimate Weight Gain recipe
Used by highly respected rescue organisations to bring dogs back to a healthy weight and condition.
Swiftwood Sanctuary provides safety and shelter for all creatures great and small from dogs to cows, horses and alpacas we tend to take in the animals nobody else wants to give a chance too such as large emotionally challenged dogs and farm animals, sometimes we seek new loving places for them to live but very often they are too far gone emotionally oftentimes due to the horrendous cruelty and neglect they have endured. At Swiftwood Sanctuary they get the chance to live the rest of their lives in comfort and safety.
We sometimes take animals with the aim of giving them a more respectful and painless death than they would have done had they stayed in their previous situation; even if it means they only get to spend a few hours or days here, at least they will have known love and a pain free end cradled in our arms with dignity.
We’re proud to say that we use Total Pet Nutrition for our Sanctuary dogs. We often take in very underweight and neglected large breeds such as Borzoi, GSDs, Dobermanns and Greyhounds. Since feeding our dogs Fat Boy the transformation in some of our very poor sighthounds has been absolutely remarkable – Despite having spent many years trying all sorts of different foods from raw to very expensive prestige kibbles Total Pet Nutrition’s Fat Boy has proved to be in a league of it’s own. Fat Boy
has consistently helped to get our underweight dogs back to healthy weights, the glucosamine and chondroitin helps their joints and the inclusion of salmon oil certainly gives them all a mirror like shine. We are so pleased with the results.
Swiftwood Sanctuary has been a self-funded Sanctuary for over 25 years and we are struggling with ever increasing bills and running costs.
Mari, Swiftwood Sanctuary’s Founder, rescued her first greyhound by saving up her dinner money to pay for his release from a council kennel and managed to just have the money on the day he was to be put to sleep, a few days later she returned to the kennels to take the terrier that had bitten her hand in fear – with her first job onwards she has spent most of her earnings rescuing desperate dogs and animals and the Sanctuary has grown from there. You can read about how the name Swiftwood came about on our website here.
If you can help in any way – even a few pounds for a bag of carrots or a bale of hay or treats for the dogs we would be absolutely so very grateful. Please have a look at the Swiftwood Sanctuary website gallery where you find some lovely pictures of our rescues. www.swiftwoodsanctuary.co.uk
