Just like humans, cats may need to manage their weight. Sometimes a cat may be overweight but sometimes a cat may lose weight too rapidly, which could be hazardous to its health. That’s why Kindred Biosciences recently got FDA approval for a new drug called Mirataz, which can help a cat manage its weight.
Mirataz is classified as a weight gain drug and can be used in cats with various underlying diseases associated with unintended weight loss. So now if your cat is losing too much weight, don’t overfeed it. Just try a drug and see if that helps the cat’s health somehow.
