10. Give an L-Caratine Boost
L-Caratine is an amino acid that helps the liver transform fat reserves into glucose. As a result, L-Caratine can be a huge help for big cats trying to lose weight. The amino acid is found in high quantities in meats, but in very low levels in vegetable matter. This is another reason a high protein diet is great for cats. With your vet's approval, supplementing your cat's diet with L-Caratine can help kickstart weight loss in an obese feline and keep it healthy throughout its dietary journey.
