  • Feeding Guide

    How to adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal weight.


    These ranges are a starting point only, because cats' needs vary. Adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal body weight.

    FOR WEIGHT LOSS: Determine the amount to feed based on the target weight rather than the current weight.

    FOR WEIGHT MAINTENANCE: Patient should be monitored to ensure proper body weight is maintained. Increase food amounts accordingly.

     When feeding for the first time, mix increasing amounts of the pet’s new food with decreasing amounts of the old food over a 7-day period.
