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.
