Does Your Cat Need To Lose Weight?
It’s undeniable that all cats are cute — even when they have a little extra weight on them. However, that little bit of excess weight can be detrimental to their health and lead to problems later down the line.
Obesity in cats is a considerable risk factor for health problems such as diabetes, osteoarthritis, inflammation, and even a shortened lifespan. If your cat is young and energetic despite being overweight, you might think that your cat isn’t at risk for these ailments. Yet, being overweight or obese can cause problems even in the short term.
