- HEALTH TRACKER
A recent study has found that American dogs and cats are facing an obesity epidemic of their own. OH Magazine would like to hear from you. Is your pet Obese? If so, are you guilty of feeding your favorite companion table scraps and treats on a regular basis? Would you like to see nutritional labels with caloric information on the packaging of the foods you buy for your pet? Do you have any tips for getting your pet healthy? Share your stories and photos (if you like) of your pets here. Your responses may publish in OH Magazine or on ObesityHelp.com.
You may also your responses and photos to me at Tammy@ObesityHelp.com
My cat is obese. 14 pounds and should be maybe 7-10. I feed her only dry catfood. I do not give her table scraps or people food at all. I switched her to "weight control" cat food and she gained more weight. I switched her to IAMS thinking better quality food might help. She loved it! and demanded more and gained weight. I tried cutting back and limiting her food to smaller amounts. She retaliated by peeing on the carpet and crying all night. Cat wins. Currently feeding her Purina Indoor cat formula food. She eats about 1 cup a day. I don't try to limit her to less any more. She lost a little bit, and isn't gaining more.
Does her story sound familiar :)

Both my two cats are obese. They are on a low fat diet and it doesn't even make a difference. They are indoor cats. And we only have 600 square feet so I guess they don't have enough room to get enough excersize.
I thought maybe the could be sleeved with me. lol Just kidding of course!
