Customer Question
I have adopted a...

I have adopted a 7 year old cat and she has only been with me for 5 days but her eating habits have tailed off.....

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the cat's name?

Suzy

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Suzy?

Well ironically she is considered 'obese' so on a specific amount of food per day, since arriving at my home i have given her cooked chicken (very small amounts) which she devours but her dry food she is ignoring
