It important to monitor your pet’s weight and obesity can lead to several medical problems. It’s important that a body condition score is carried out on your cat so that the ideal weight can be determined. Once you know that an ideal diet + quantities of food can be prescribed for your pet. Forced or controlled exercise is a much bigger challenge than in dogs for example and therefore one relies heavily on the correct diet and controlled quantities. Most veterinary clinics will have weight clinics and is probably the ideal place to start.
