Gradual Weight Loss

If you feel that your pet cat is getting too chubby, consult your veterinarian and carry out a weight-reduction program only under the direction of the expert. Don’t put a cat on a sudden starvation diet or your pet will develop a risk of a serious health problem like the feline fatty liver syndrome. Aim for a gradual weight loss of perhaps 1%-2% of the body weight per week. Experts from the Cornell Feline Health Center recommend that an owner of a chubby cat purchase a baby scale in order to monitor a cat’s weight at home.
