How to make sure your cat attains her ideal weight and maintains a healthy weight for life.

  • 1. Track your cat’s weight Losing weight can propel your cat toward better health, but only if the weight is lost in a healthy, controlled manner. To make sure your cat is losing weight at a normal pace, make sure to weigh your pet regularly. Tip for the Scales: Most veterinarians’ offices have a scale available to use free of charge

  • 2. Include healthy activity When you feed Hill’s® Science Diet or Hill’s® Prescription Diet® cat food you know your cat will be eating healthy. However, your cat’s weight management program isn’t complete without a healthy amount of physical activity. Make sure your cat is getting the physical activity he needs to get and stay healthy.

  • 3. Visit your veterinarian often Make frequent visits to your veterinarian to ensure that your pet’s weight management program is going smoothly. Your veterinarian knows your pet’s ideal weight, how fast she should be losing weight and which foods are best for each stage of the weight management plan.

  • 4. Maintain an ideal weight for life Your cat’s weight management plan shouldn’t be temporary. Once your cat has attained her ideal weight, switch to a simple weight maintenance plan that consists of regular exercise and proper nutrition.
