Understand Your Pet's Body Condition Score

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

Remember a pet's overweight condition can increase the risk of developing serious health conditions including diabetes, arthritis, urinary disease or heart disease. Talk to your vet about your cat's ideal weight and how to avoid these risks.
