Cat Overweight

Overweight Cat Help

A cat that is overweight, like humans, can have many problems. It is essential to keep your pet at a healthy weight to ensure they live a long happy life.

How do I know if my cat is overweight?


A cat is seen as overweight when you can no longer easily feel the ribs.

How can I help my cat lose weight?


There are many ways for a cat to lose weight. Most important is to keep them active, especially if they are indoor. A few other weight loss tips are a feeding ball, weight loss diets and wellness testing to make sure there are no underlying issues causing weight gain.

What is offered during a nutritional consultation?


During a nutritional consult, your veterinarian can calculate your cat’s calorie requirements and give you a detailed guide on how much to feed your pet. They can also discuss any pre-existing conditions that you have to consider when choosing diet and exercise methods.
