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 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. It will also limit her energy. Talk to your vet about your cat's ideal weight and avoiding these risks.
