Image result for Cats That Eat a Lot but Don't Gain Weight

Cats can be picky about what they eat, but that doesn’t mean all cats are that way. Some cats eat a lot! If your cat eats a lot of food, you would expect him to gain weight. What does it mean if he doesn’t?

If your cat is ravenous, but he isn’t gaining any weight, chances are, he has a medical problem. A common problem is diabetes. If it turns out your cat has this illness, he’ll likely drink a lot of water too. You may end up having to give your feline friend insulin shots.

Hyperthyroidism can also be a problem, and it’s more likely to be a problem in older cats. The good news is, with the help of a vet, this problem can actually be cured.

Pancreatic insufficiency is also a possibility. To make sure your cat doesn’t have one of these problems, you should schedule an appointment with your vet Somerville, MA.
