A previous study in dogs had demonstrated that using a standard maintenance diet in the post-weight-loss period increases the risk of weight regain(,). Unfortunately, it was not possible to examine this effect in the cats of the present study because there was a greater variability in the food fed, and many owners did not maintain an accurate record. Instead, therefore, we examined the effect of close monitoring, by comparing those owners who closely regulated their cat's intake (i.e. by accurately measuring food portions, not giving table scraps or treats, and maintaining records) with those who had not. Although simple logistic regression analysis suggested an effect, this factor did not remain in the final multiple regression model. Further work is recommended to determine the effect of post-weight-loss dietary management in a larger population of obese cats.

In this study, overweight cats consumed table foods and snacks with the same frequency and variety as cats with optimal body condition. These data suggest little or no advantage to restricting table foods and snacks as a part of feeding management for weight-control or weight-loss programs. Indeed, permitting owners to offer snacks and treats may improve compliance with weight management programs while maintaining the owner-pet bond.
