Having a big cat can be cute but it is dangerous. Overweight cats pose many health problems and should be taken care off soon. Obesity occurs for many reasons such as over eating, lack of exercising or lack of motivation to play. Whichever the reason, take your cat to the vet as soon as possible and treat your cat for obesity.
Tips To Treat Obesity In Cats
- Talk to your vet about the recommended daily amount of food your cat should consume on a daily basis. You also want to make sure that the food you are feeding your cat is of quality and low fat. Your vet should be able to recommend good quality food for your cat.
- Start playing with your cat to increase exercise. All cats love catnip and playing with string so give it a try!
- Invest in a cat gym whereby you create tunnels and areas to jump and play. Cats love exploring so make your environment conducive to exploring rather than sleeping.
- Realize that it will take time for your cat to lose weight. Be patient and take the necessary precautions and over time your cat will lose weight and become healthy again.
