Cat weight loss

Cat weight loss

58% of cats are obese or overweight according to the Association of Pet Obesity Prevention.

  1. That equals a greater risk for type 2 diabetes, higher blood pressure, heart problems, arthritis and cancer.
  2. It also means more veterinary bills for your cat.
  3. Obesity is the number 1 health threat to cats today.

So what to do?

  • Read your pet food bag!  They list the proper serving for your cat; for age and weight.
  • Try to start playing with your cat:
    • Laser pointers
    • String toys
    • tinkle balls
      • These all encourage movement.
  • Stop any treats.
  • Feed a higher protein, lower carb diet.
  • No more food all the time:  free feeding
  • You may need to change to an automated feeder or timed feeder.
