Health concerns arise when your cat is overweight. These include diabetes, heart disease, breathing and mobility problems.
The diet chosen for Ziggy is Medi Cal Royal Canin Satiety. According to the feeding guide he should be fed 1 cup per day for him to reach his goal weight.
Ziggy started his diet on February 25, 2013. He was slowly introduced to his new food by mixing his old food and new food together to avoid any digestive upsets.
I know Ziggy is very excited to lose some weight and stay healthy to live a long and happy life. Check back to see Ziggy’s progress!
