  • Feeding Guide

    How to adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal weight.

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

    • Recommend feeding Prescription Diet dry food, canned food, and treats exclusively.
    • Determine the amount to feed based on the ideal weight rather than the current weight.
    • Do not allow obese cats to consume less than 80% of recommended feeding amount. Fasting may increase the risk of hepatic lipidosis.
    • Gradually transition to the new food over a 7 day period.
