Understand Your Pet's Body Condition Score
Body Condition Scoring (BCS) helps determine if a pet's growth rate and feeding amounts are correct. Monitoring growth and weight can help prevent obesity.
At each visit, your veterinarian will weigh your pet. Your pet's body condition may be rated on a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 meaning very thin and 5 meaning obese. If necessary, your vet can help you adjust the amount of food you are offering to help your kitten achieve an optimal BCS of 3.
