As pet owners it is our responsibility to take our pets to their veterinarian for regular check ups. If your pet is overweight it can greatly reduce their quality of life and increase the risk of weight associated health problems. An excellent way to improve your pets health is to maintain a healthy weight. As pet owners we need to make the best decision when choosing what food to feed to our pets.
We have a cat, Reggie, or if you want to call him by his full name, Sir Reginald Jackson! He has struggled here and there with his weight, especially after we almost lost him to a blocked urinary tract. He has always been a bigger cat as with his breed, Scottish Fold, males can average between 9 to 13 lbs. He has definitely gone over 13 lbs. a few times in the past! With help from our vet who recommended a specific diet for Reggie paired with exercise he has made great improvements.
If you pet is overweight you should speak to your veterinarian to come up with a weight loss plan that works best for your pet. Your veterinarian is key in finding out what kind of food and diet is appropriate for your pet. Many vets, including ours recommend Royal Canin because of the quality of their products. Their products are also geared to providing the best nutrition to help contribute to your pets overall health.
