Portion control just got a whole lot easier. With the PortionPro Rx, your clients are equipped to serve their cats the professionally recommended meal portions for healthy weight loss. Designed by Vet Innovations, the PortionPro Rx automatically dispenses timed, portion-controlled meals. Made for overweight pets in multi-pet households, the system can be set up to dispense certain amounts of food to each animal at specific times, while preventing access to all other pets. The PortionPro Rx is designed to reverse and prevent obesity in multipet homes. And it only takes 60 seconds to set up!

The Indoor Hunter Feeder

A large contributor to obesity in cats is a lack of psychological stimulation, which is why Doc and Phoebe's Cat Co. invented the Indoor Hunting Feeder. These mouse-shaped gadgets hold healthy portions of food and trigger innate feline behaviors associated with eating, like hunting, catching and playing with prey. As a result, the Indoor Hunting Feeder provides an outlet for exercise, improves eating habits and eases feline anxiety.

Cosequin for Cats

Reward good behavior while also protecting joint health? Now, that's a win-win. Cosequin for Cats soft chews contains FCHG49 glucosamine and TRH122 sodium chondroitin sulfate for joint support. But that's not all. These chews are also packed with omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA to promote healthy skin and coat, allowing cats to look as good as their joints feel.
