Cat Weight Management Counselling

We all like to feed our pets. It brings us joy to provide them with good quality food and treats. A few extra calories a day can sometimes lead to excess weight gain for our feline family members. We are here to help you monitor and judge the correct calorie intake to lose or maintain weight for your cat. There is a lot of false information out there about feline nutrition. We encourage you to ask one of our knowledgeable veterinarians or a Registered Veterinary Technician about a safe, gradual weight-loss program. Cats have very special nutritional requirements that should be managed by a professional.

How do I know if my cat overweight?


If you think your cat has gained even a little excess weight, we encourage you to have their body condition assessed by a veterinarian. Typically, this is something we check during any type of physical examination. We use a body condition score system that determines the percentage of body fat and how much weight-loss is required for your cat.

Our Weight-Loss Counselling and Management Program:


Our registered veterinary technicians will develop a weight loss plan tailored to your cat’s nutrition and weight loss requirements. Cats have very special nutritional requirements and it is very important to work with a professional while managing their weight-loss. Using one of our prescription diets, regular weigh-ins, and customized progress reports, we will help you correct your pet’s state of health. You’ll be amazed at how different your pet looks and acts as the weight comes off in a safe, medically supervised way. Once they have reached their target weight, a weight maintenance plan will be put in place to keep them feeling great. This service is FREE for our clients.
