Overweight Cat Help

Health problems associated with overweight cats include lameness and arthritis, diabetes, exercise intolerance, poor grooming and increased anesthetic and surgical risk.

How do I know if my cat overweight?

Ideally, you cannot see its ribs, but you can easily feel them. Your cat should have a waist, and the stomach tucks in behind the rib cage. If you have concerns or questions, please have your veterinarian do a body condition score to analyze your cat’s weight and follow recommendations for a weight correction program.

How can I help my cat to lose weight?

Consultation with your veterinarian can lead to a formula and plan for your cat to lose weight safely and successfully. Weight loss programs are designed to keep your cat happy between meals and lose weight safely. Regular weigh-in dates help track the success of the program and lead to a maintenance program for a long and healthy life.

What is offered during a nutritional consultation?

A baseline of your cat’s weight, a goal that is achievable, and a diet to make it happen will help to get your cat started on a weight loss program. Continued support to reach the goal weight is of the utmost importance.
