So you have just verified with your veternarian that your animal is indeed overweight. It’s time to acknowledge and take some responsibility. That’s truly the first step. We are a lot more responsible to our pets’ weight problems than we may believe.
2:You take your dog or pup out on ultra-fast walks for potty and rush him or her straight back into the house. You rarely take him or her around the block for adequate exercise.
3: You indulge your dog by giving him/her treats whenever those wanting 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 is 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 the others.
6:You live in a small apartment that doesn’t have much room for your cat or dog to run about.
7:You feed your cats and dogs food just because, whether or not they are really hungry.
8:You never play with your cat and she’s no other cats or kittens in the household to perform
9: You lavish your pet with lots and lots of treats from pure guilt to compensate for all those long hours at work
It must be noted that Monitoring your fat cat’s food intake can be particularly difficult in multi-cat families where only 1 of the family cats is fat.
He or she probably got that way originally by swallowing the other cats’ food as well as his/her own.
Perhaps the simplest solution is to simply 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. This is normal.
Cats, more than critter removal from attic , are really creatures of habit. It may take two or even 3 tries, carrying your cat and the food into the new eating area. No matter what room it is, make it comfortable for them, even if it is the bathroom. Put down a place mat, shut the toilet seat, wear a light and possibly even put down a towel to your cat.
