Help Your Fat Kitty Fight The Bulge
Many people find overweight or obese cats cute and adorable. However, the extra pounds can have a bad effect on the cat’s health and well-being. Here are some tips to help your pet get rid of the excess weight:
l Give pet food that is appropriate for the lifestage that your pet is in. Cats are obligate carnivores thus meat should always be one of the top ingredients.
l Compared to kibbles, wet or canned pet food is formulated with less amount of fillers and contains more water. Less filler means better quality food.
l Avoid ‘free-feeding’ or refilling your pet’s food bowl each time it’s empty. Keep a tight rein on his calorie intake. And give smaller meals than one big meal by dividing his daily ration into several small meals given in regular intervals throughout the day.
