Obesity And Cat Health Care

One of the most serious threats to cat health care at present is obesity. More cats than ever before are obese and the result is increased incidence of serious cat health care problems. Unfortunately, obesity in cats creates a cycle that is very hard to get out of: overweight cats are less likely to be physically active and are therefore more likely to remain obese.

Diagnosing this particular cat health care problem is not difficult at all: it is clear to see just from looking at the cat. A cat which is a healthy weight will have an obvious waist just in front of its hind legs when viewed from above and, if it is a short hair cat with a thin coat, you should be able to feel but not see the cat’s ribs.

A vet will diagnose obesity by weighing the cat and will be able to advise on the best way for your cat to lose weight. If left to remain overweight, cats can go on to suffer various cat health care problems including, arthritis, difficulty breathing, heart problems and diabetes. Ultimately, obesity may kill the cat.

Owners can buy special, low calorie cat food from pet shops and their vet’s practice. It’s important that we remember that any cat treats we give still count towards to overall daily intake of calories for the cat, so meals should be reduced accordingly. Leftovers from human meals and titbits can also add to the calorific content of a cat’s diet. Many pet owners are not aware that their cat is being fed by well meaning neighbours, as well as at home. It is a good idea to mention the cat health care problem and politely request others do not feed your cat.

All cat owners have a responsibility to promote good cat health care and this includes encouraging physical activity. Try and ensure your cat spends some time strolling outside everyday. Also try to spend more time playing with your cat. Having your pet chase balls and other playthings will help keep their weight down.
