It’s easy to assume your cat is healthy – but as you see them so regularly, it’s easy for their weight to creep up (or down) without realising.
Overweight cats are more susceptible to health problems, while underweight cats may have an underlying condition that needs to be addressed. It’s therefore important to keep a close eye on their body condition.
At our 106 Talbot Road practice, our vet nurses offer body condition checks – so why not make a new year’s resolution to book an appointment for your cat this January?
