It is estimated 1 in every 4 cats in North America is overweight. To determine if your cat is overweight, consult your veterinarian and check your cat periodically. You should be able to feel the ribs. In short-haired cats you should also see an abdominal tuck between the ribs and hips. Overweight cats tend to carry their excess fat under the stomach and chest. If you cannot feel their ribs, your cat is probably overweight. Consider a healthy, moderated feeding program, such as Performatrin Ultra® Healthy Weight Recipe With Salmon Cat Food, to help your overweight cat.
Step 1: Introduce
Mix ¼ part of Performatrin Ultra® Healthy Weight Recipe With Salmon Cat Food with ¾ parts of your cat’s current food for 2-3 days. Then increase to ½ and ½ for 2-3 days, then ¾ and ¼ for 2-3 days, and then feed exclusively feeding Performatrin Ultra® Healthy Weight Recipe With Salmon Cat Food.
Step 2: Reduce Intake
Performatrin Ultra® Healthy Weight Recipe With Salmon Cat Food is specially formulated to satisfy your cat’s appetite faster, so that your cat is wanting (and eating) less food. Start by determining how much your cat is currently eating by either weighing or counting the numbers of cups of food fed daily. The accompanying Feeding Guide indicates the typical amount of this food required to maintain the indicated weight. Your cat will adjust better to eating less food if the amount of food is reduced gradually rather than one drastic reduction of food intake. Start by reducing the amount fed by 10% and weigh your cat again in 2 weeks. The goal is to have your cat lose between 2-3% of body weight in a 2-week period. For example, a 15 lb (6.8 kg) cat should lose about 0.3 lb (0.14 kg) over 2 weeks. If your cat’s weight loss over this period is less than 2% of body weight, reduce the amount fed by another 10%. Continue this pattern until your cat is losing between 2-3% of body weight in a 2-week period. Keep in mind that most cats will need 20-40% less food to achieve this rate of weight loss, at which point you can simply maintain that level of food consumption until your cat has successfully achieved their target weight. It may take 6 -10 months to reach your cat’s ideal body weight.†
Step 3: Measure Success
Maintain a weight loss chart to monitor progress. Weigh your cat on a scale every 2 weeks, or use a measuring tape to record its girth behind the front legs and in front of the hind legs. Slow, sustainable weight loss is best for achieving permanent results.
Step 4: Maintain Success
Once your cat’s target weight has been achieved, increase the amount of Performatrin Ultra® Healthy Weight Recipe With Salmon Cat Food fed by 10% every 2 weeks until desired weight is maintained. For long term weight maintenance adjust feeding according to your cat’s individual needs.
Supplementary Treats: If you are giving treats, use in moderation and select low fat, healthy choices.
Exercise: To help increase your cat’s metabolism, increase the amount of play time.
