Overweight Cat Help

It is an excellent idea to frequently weigh your cat to keep an eye on his body weight. Weight can quickly sneak up on a cat and can be detrimental to your cat’s health. Our staff can help choose a nutrition plan to keep your pet healthy and have a long life.

How do I know if my cat is overweight?


We use the body condition chart to determine whether your cat is in its ideal body condition. It is a scale of 1 to 5 with five being severely obese, your veterinary will check your cat’s body condition during your cat’s yearly physical exam and keep a close eye on your cat’s weight.


How can I help my cat to lose weight?


Reducing food intake and treats, feeding a weight loss diet if your cat is overweight. Also, avoid free feeding always feed your cat two meals per day and try to introduce more play time.


What is offered during a nutritional consultation?


We will recommend a new diet that we feel will work for your cat. We also provide free weigh-ins after starting a new diet and body condition score.
