Q. I have a 24 lb cat who is healthy. I have him on science diet rd which has not helped in loosing weight.What is an alternative pet food thats low cost

Answered By

A. It can be difficult to get cats too loose weight especially if the go outside and scavenge from neighbours. Hills rd or royal canin satiety or obesity are the best foods if you are serious about getting your cat to loose weight. You need to try and encourage exercise too by chasing a laser light ot Chase toys or feeding from a feeding ball so they have to roll the ball around to get the food to drop out, this way having to workout for their food.
