Overweight Cat Help
We take pride in keeping your cat at a happy, healthy weight. Our team can help assess if your cat is overweight and help implement a weight loss plan. It can be done with a specialized diet plan. After your feline is spayed or neutered, extra care must be taken with food intake to help prevent weight gain.
How do I know if my cat is overweight?
A cat is considered to be overweight when the pet has more than 25% body fat. This can be evaluated by our medical staff. Common signs of obesity may include, but are not limited to, ribs that are not prominent or hard to feel, no abdominal tuck (waist), loose or distended abdomen or even a fat pad at the tail base and abdomen.
How can I help my cat lose weight?
Often, it may be difficult to keep our feline friends active. When this is an issue, a specialized weight loss diet can be implemented to help with weight loss and maintenance. We carry several forms of weight management diets, and we can help determine which diet is most suitable for your cat.
What is offered during a nutritional consultation?
At your annual examination with your pet, our medical staff are highly trained in methods of weight control/loss using nutrition. Any questions regarding your cat’s weight can be answered at this time. If you believe your cat may be overweight, contact our staff today to book your consultation.
