Help your overweight cat get healthy

Posted by Edward Cruz on


Are you having problem with your overweight cat shedding those extra pounds? 

American Journal of Veterinary Research published a recent study that outlines a new diet plan for overweight cats.

The study shows how overweight cats can get back to healthy weight by reducing the cats calorie intake over many week in a gradual way.

In the study, for four weeks, eight cats first ate a high-fiber, moderate-protein diet as a baseline. A 20% food intake was then reduced by the researchers of the first week of dieting period. Researcher reduced more food in the weeks 2 through 8. For the last 10 weeks, the cats had no further reductions.

The result at the end of the study clearly shows that the eight cats used for research had drop significant amounts of weight.
