  • Feeding Guide

    How to adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal weight.

    Adjust feeding amounts as necessary to maintain optimal weight. Monitoring your patients condition will assure the nutritional recommendation provides the best results.

    • Determine the amount to feed based on the ideal weight rather than the current weight.
    • Recommend feeding the recommended Hill's™ Prescription Diet™ dry food, canned food, & treats exclusively.
    • Gradually transition to the new food over a 7 day period.
    • Note: Do not allow obese cats to consume less than 80% of the recommended feeding amounts. Fasting may increase the risk of hepatic lipidosis.
    • Encourage increased water intake. Veterinary supervised exercise may be beneficial in combination with weight loss programs.
