Overweight Cat Help

Being overweight can cause many health issues for your cat. Maintaining an ideal weight can help your cat to live a long and healthy life!

Is my cat fat?

If your cat’s ribs are hard to feel and they have lost definition in their waistline they would be considered overweight. If you are concerned that your cat is overweight please contact Cumberland Veterinary Clinic to schedule a nutritional consultation with our veterinary technicians. We can assess your cat’s condition and assist with a diet plan.

How can my cat lose weight?

The first step is to have a nutritional consultation. It is important to know a current weight and then determine an ideal weight before getting started. Weight loss diets and controlling daily calorie consumption are vital to weight loss success. Increasing activity will help your cat to burn calories and regain muscle strength. Laser pointers and food balls work well for many cats. Please contact Cumberland Veterinary Clinic for more tips on how to get your cat active!

What is offered in nutritional consultation?

During a nutritional consultation we will assess your cat’s weight, body condition score and determine an ideal weight. We will provide recommendations on an appropriate diet for your cat’s needs and how much you should be feeding. We recommend having your cats weight rechecked every six weeks to track progress.
