Dogs are not the only pet that can struggle with their weight.  #didyouknow that 44% of cats in the UK are considered to be overweight or obese?  Sharing is definitely not caring when it comes to giving your kitty human tidbits. #didyouknow feeding your cat just 1oz of cheese as a treat is the calorie equivalent to giving him or her 3 chocolate bars?

Extra weight not only affects your cat’s day to day life but also their long-term health.  Those extra pounds can cause additional health issues for your cat such as diabetes, osteoarthritis and heart disease.  The hardest step an owner takes is to acknowledge that their cat is overweight, but we are here to help.

How can I tell if my cat is overweight?

If the extra weight is subtle, it can be difficult to know if your cat is overweight. Check out our quick guide to help identify if your cat is carrying some extra pounds.

Watch this sweet, short film on how sometimes we show our love for our feline friends through food. By taking those first hard steps, you can love them even more by helping them to reduce any extra weight.

Treat control!

Those treats mount up. Always remember that any treats given should be included in your cat’s overall calorie total. Here’s a great visual to show how many calories these treats contain.

If you are concerned about your cat’s weight or any aspect of your cat’s health, call our team today.
