Risks for Overweight Cats


As little as two pounds above the ideal body weight can put your cat at risk for developing some serious medical conditions. Unfortunately, when a cat is overweight or obese it no longer is a question of “if” your cat will develop a condition secondary to the excess weight but “how soon and how serious!” Some of the common disorders associated with excess weight include:

   Type 2 diabetes (an obese cat is 300% more likely to develop this serious disease as a cat of normal weight)

    Heart disease

   Osteoarthritis (arthritis)

   Increased frequency of joint injuries

   High blood pressure

   Some forms of cancer – especially intra-abdominal cancers
