Overweight Cat Help

While in the clinic, you may hear your veterinarian talk about Body Condition Score (BCS). It is a scale from 1-9, with 5 being ideal. Taking into consideration weight distribution and the number on our scale, our staff can see where your cat fits. Using this information, we can better provide information about your cat’ s activity level and/or food intake.

How do I know if my cat is overweight?

Your veterinary professionals can help you determine if your cat is overweight by using a BCS. Together, we can build a plan to get your cat back in tip-top shape.

How can I help my cat lose weight?

In partnership with our experienced veterinary staff, we can find a plan that works for you by using Slim Fit powered by Royal Canin.

What is offered during a nutritional consultation?

We offer a safe and successful weight loss plan tailored to your kitty’s individual needs.


Black History & Veterinary Medicine - Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb (1923-1992)

Today's medical historian of colour is Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb. Dr. Webb graduated with her DVM with our previous blog star Dr. Hinton, as one of the first female African American veterinarians in the US. Both of these great women were also the first black members of the Women’s Veterinary Medicine Association. She also founded the School of Veterinary Medicine of North Carolina State University. In 1971, she became the first African American woman in the North Carolina General Assembly, serving on many committees including serving as the Chairperson of Minority Affairs, president of the Democratic Women of NC, and a member of the NC Council on Sickle Cell Syndrome.   So you can see despite so many obstacles Dr. Webb was still able to make history and so can we!   Written by: Ashley G, VT   Resources:
