So you’ve just confirmed with your veternarian that your creature is indeed overweight. It is time to acknowledge and take some responsibility. That’s really the first step. We’re a lot more responsible for our pets’ weight issues than we may think.
Take a quick peak at this fat checklist and be aware of the statements which
Apply to you and your creature.
You rarely take them around the block for decent exercise.
3: You gratify your dog by providing him/her treats whenever those wanting eyes look your way, without cever onsidering the components or the amount of calories.
4:You feed your pet too much, refilling the dish once it’s emptied, never thinking about the amount that you’re actually feeding.
5:You have a multi cat household and a few cats wind up eating more than the others.
6:You live in a small apartment that doesn’t have a lot of room for your cat or dog to run about.
7:You feed your cats and dogs food just because, whether or not they are really hungry.
8:You never play with your cat and she’s no additional cats or kittens in the household to play
9: You lavish your pet with lots and lots of treats out of pure guilt to compensate for all those long hours at work
It must be noted that Monitoring your fat cat’s food intake can be especially difficult in multi-cat families where only 1 of the household cats is obese.
He or she probably got that way initially by consuming the other cats’ food in addition to his/her own.
Perhaps the simplest solution is to just feed set meals in different rooms and remove any uninjested food after the cats have lost interest in their meal. Alright, say that you have attempted this and your cats just will not appear to cooperate.
It may take 2 or even 3 attempts, carrying your cat and the food into the new eating room. Regardless of what room it’s, make it comfortable for them, even if it’s the bathroom. Put down a place mat, shut the toilet seat, wear a light and possibly even put down a towel to your cat.
