"If a patient is on a weight loss plan for obesity, vets generally recommend about one to two percent loss of bodyweight per week," says Lara Bartl, DVM, DABVP, assistant professor at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech University, but unless you are trying to achieve weight loss, she adds, any weight loss should be considered significant and investigated.
Oral pain, Bartl says, may lead to weight loss in pets, as dogs and cats will have a hard time chewing hard kibble when they're dealing with an abscess or other gum problem. This is not as common as medical causes, Bartl says, but stress can cause changes in a pet's appetite and should not be overlooked. She lists changes in the household and the addition of a new pet as possible sources of stress-induced weight loss.
