Last month we introduced you to Max, a 12 year old softie that joined Dr. Kris's family. As an overweight pet, his first priority was slimming down. Obese cats are at high risk for developing diabetes, orthopedic injury, and high blood pressure.
Good news! Max started at a hefty 18.9 pounds and his weight today was 17.2#. He is already starting to look leaner and has an easier time grooming. Although he still has a ways to go to reach his ideal body condition, he is on his way to a healthier and happier life! At his next weigh in, Max will share some of his exercise tips you can choose to help your overweight feline friend shed some pounds to look and feel better!
