MIAMI, FL (PRWEB) December 24, 2012
Experts estimate that as many as 50 percent of companion cats are at risk for obesity. Feline obesity is not merely a cosmetic problem; obesity contributes to joint disease, diabetes, increased cholesterol, elevated blood lipids, heart and blood vessel disease, urinary and reproductive disorders, breast and other cancers, and skin diseases. A serious health issue, feline obesity threatens both pet well-being and lifespan. WholePetDirect.com offers cat owners a solution with Slimcat.
Veterinary experts give cat owners the same weight loss advice given any human who has ever needed to fight the battle of obesity: eat less and exercise more. Of course anyone awakened at 5 a.m. by a persistent feline feverishly kneading and meowing piteously for breakfast knows that it’s often far easier to fill the food bowl than to say no. “I have a really busy schedule and it has caused me to give my cat food all the time instead of keeping her on a healthier schedule. This has resulted in her gaining more and more weight over time,” reports Jenny Lunn WholePetDirect.com customer.

Slimcat seen here is designed to promote healthy feline weight and muscle mass.
