So you’ve just verified with your veternarian that your animal is indeed overweight. It’s time to acknowledge and take some responsibility. That’s really the first step. We’re far more accountable for our pets’ weight issues than we may think.
Apply to you and your animal.
1:Your cat or dog is an indoor animal which eats, sleeps and snacks virtually all day long.
You rarely take them around the block for adequate exercise.
3: You gratify your dog by giving him/her treats whenever those needing eyes look your way, without cever onsidering the components or the amount of calories.
4:You feed your pet too much, refilling the dish after it’s emptied, never considering the amount that you’re actually feeding.
5:You have a multi cat household and some cats end up eating more than others.
6:You live in a little apartment that doesn’t have a lot of space for your cat or dog to run about.
7:You feed your dogs and cats meals just because, whether or not they are really hungry.
8:You never play with your cat and she has no additional kittens or cats in the household to perform
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 should be noted that Tracking your fat cat’s food intake can be particularly difficult in multi-cat families where only 1 of the household cats is obese.
He or she probably got that way originally by consuming the other cats’ food in addition to his/her own.
Perhaps the easiest 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 seem to cooperate.
It can take two or even 3 tries, carrying your cat and the food into the new eating room. No matter 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 for your cat.
