In the United States, an estimated 58 percent of cats and 54 percent of dogs are overweight or obese. It is essential to take measures to prevent excess weight gain in your pets, which can result in high blood pressure, heart and respiratory disease, kidney disease and decreased life expectancy (up to 2.5 years.)* After all, don’t we all want a healthy cat?
So, what can you do to help?
- Take your cat to the vet at least once a year for check-ups.
- Follow your veterinarian’s recommendations about immunizations and parasite preventatives to protect your cat from preventable diseases.
- Choose a diet that provides the proper nutrition to maximize your cats health and longevity.
- Don’t overlook the importance of exercise. It is the best way to keep your pet healthy and trim.
