Customer Question

My tabby cat, 6 old, weighs 20 lbs., she got as big as 23.5 earlier and the vet put her on
Feline Metobolic in Feb, this year She lost the 3.5 in the beginning, but now she is hungry all the time and no longer losing weight. He had me her 1/3 cup 2x a day. Is there a
better food with more protein and less carbohydrates?
