How It Works

WAGSTA Wellness is a veterinary guided dog weight loss plan helping pet parents achieve a healthier weight for their four-pawed friends.

Receive support throughout your dog’s weight loss journey with access to our on-line community of fellow WAGSTA members and via your WAGSTA Wellness coaching series, which guides you step-by-step to achieving your dog’s healthy weight.

With WAGSTA Wellness you’ll never diet alone! We are all in this together helping our dogs live happier, healthier, longer and more active lives.

The 7 Prep Steps

After sign up you will be guided through 7 Prep Steps. These include filling out your dog’s profile, completing feeding and activity questionnaires, and setting goals and milestones.

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 – 7 days).

Once prep steps are completed, you may activate your diet plan on the day most convenient to you. We recommend commencing your dog’s diet within a week of diet plan purchase.
