Overweight Cats + GIVEAWAY #hillspet

The primary focus in my home is cats, so I’ll be referencing them in the article. Keep in mind this is an issue with both cats and dogs.

One Big Kitty

Feeding your cat is a sign of love. You want the best for them. You give them the best food and the best treats (and the occasional scrap of human food that was good enough for you too). You wouldn’t deprive your cat of anything. But weight issues are more common than you think and they can sneak up on you. Here’s some food for thought:

In the US, more than 50% of dogs and cats are now overweight. Over the last five years the incidence of overweight dogs has increased by almost 40% in the US. Over the same time period the number of overweight cats has increased by an astonishing 90%.

That’s staggering! And I’m guilty.

I was more than happy to oblige my Tommy up until the time he was 4. I was proud of my big cat and the fact that company would ask “is that a puma?” when Tom skulked through the room. He weighed in at a hulking 20.4 lbs.
I knew there was a possibility Tom was fat. I’d tried interactive feeders to get him to slow down and take his time with his food. That wasn’t working. I decided to sit down with my veterinarian and have a serious talk about his weight before it climbed any further. I was amazed to hear that through a series of measurements taken of my boy, that his body type ideally was seven lbs less than where he was at.

I, like most pet parents didn’t know where to start to get my cat back to a healthier lifestyle. But the vet gave me this option: Hills Science Diet has a Metabolic Formula that helps you get your cat or dog back on track.

Without strict protocols or precise measuring, 88% of pets lost weight in two months at home.
Metabolic has a range of products to give you a program for success: A complete portfolio of dry food, canned food, and treats designed to work together to ensure safe and healthy weight loss and easy weight maintenance.

    my bobby is 11 years old. He weighs 19 lbs and is so lethargic! Our vet suggested the metabolic diet and we are trying it. Bobby is the sweetest cat ever and so good around other animals. We take care of a cat boarding business and recently had 19 guests! Bobby is the good will ambassador but most new clients make fun of him. It beaks my heart. We hope to see him live many more years but worry about the weight. Please help us on this journey to health. He deserves the best!!!
