Q. I have a 3 year old cat who is about 14 pounds. I want her to lose a few pounds. I have been feeding her Blue Buffalo. What should I feed to lose?

A. Blue Buffalo is a great, high quality food. Portioning might be something to try adjusting. Not leaving food out all the time and monitoring portioning can help. Increasing exercise can be a challenge with cats, how active is she? You might consider an herbal supplement as well, Pet Alive Slender Pet is an all natural herbal that will help:

A. Science diet has a new diet called metabolic. It's a great food and with this food they've made it to where the pet still gets plenty of food and wont feel like he's starving but they loose weight really well. You can get it through your veterinarian. It is a prescription diet.
