As the pet obesity problem in most of North America continues to grow, pet owners have become more and more concerned about nutrition and what they are feeding their cats. A simple google search will highlight a vast array of potential reasons for this…a more sedentary lifestyle created by keeping cats indoors, ad lib feeding, dry food, etc. But did you ever think that it might just be the measuring cup you’re using? Studies have shown that no matter how careful we are, measuring cups are inaccurate. Depending on the source, by as much as 152%!! Holy smokes!
To all my wonderful clients,
I feel that I need to let all of you know that I will be off for a few months in order to have and recover from open-heart surgery.
For the last couple of months we’ve been exploring how to keep our cats happy and emotionally healthy in relation to the CVMA’s five animal freedoms. Our last three freedoms are providing adequate shelter, ensuring proper socialization and allowing them to exhibit normal behavior.
