Is your cat in good shape?

Right weight for your breed

What should your pet weigh? This online tool helps you discover your pet's ideal weight based on their breed. Ideal weight may vary by breed and individual, so always discuss your pet's weight with your vet.

The Body Condition Score (BCS) is a measure that tells you if your pet is at or above its ideal weight. One way vets test your pet's body condition is by checking just how easy it is to feel their ribs.

Interesting fact

Clinical studies confirm the lifespan of an overweight pet is shortened by at least 2 years4 - the equivalent to taking 14 years off a human life!

Weight gain is serious

1 in 3 pets is overweight or obese. Being as little as 20% overweight can greatly increase the risk of your pet developing serious health conditions such as diabetes mellitus, arthritis, urinary stones or heart disease.

Excess weight not only has a negative impact on your pet's general wellbeing, happiness and overall quality of life, but it can also significantly shorten its life expectancy compared to a healthy-weight pet.
