If you live in or around the area of Stockton and you are concerned about your cats weight, then you may wish to get in contact with the team here at Jacqui Paterson’s. A small change in your cats weight can be nothing serious to worry about, however if the changes become increasingly extreme then there may be a cause for concern. We run regular cat weight management clinics, in and around Stockton, which will provide you will knowledge and advice to ensure that your cat is healthy.
An extreme change in your cats weight could be down to something as little as a lifestyle change. If your cat is simply not going outside as much as they used to or are just getting older, this could be a contributing factor to an alteration in their weight.
Ensuring that your cat is a healthy weight which is suitable for their age and breed can contribute to them living a happy, healthy and fulfilled life without a high risk of disease or health problems. If your cats weight does increase significantly, they begin to become at risk to issues like heart disease and diabetes and even cancer.
It is just as important to check that your cat is not becoming or is already underweight. Having an underweight cat mean that their immune system may be weaker than that of a cat of a healthy weight for their age and breed. If you think that your cat is underweight, then we would recommend that you bring them along to one of our cat weight management clinics in Stockton to give you the peace of mind that you are doing everything to make sure that your cat is happy and healthy.
Before coming to a clinic you can check your cat at home for glaring weight issues. Looking at your cat from above, the outline of their waist should be visible and their stomach tucked away from view, you should not be able to see any protruding ribs.
If you are worried after checking your pet at home, then booking them onto one of our cat weight management sessions in Stockton would be a great way to get some expert advice from a highly qualified team. In one of these sessions you may also receive advice on what diet your cat should have, overfeeding and giving them a large number of treats can be a contributing factor to weight gain, similarly underfeeding can lead to weight loss.
