Dog feed

feeding your dogs

Several factors can impact not only how much food to feed your dog, but also what type of food your dog needs.

  • Weight: Maintaining an ideal body condition is important for your dog’s overall health. “If your dog is not in deal body condition, you may need to make adjustments in what and how much you are feeding.
  • Activity Levels: The feeding recommendations on dog food packages are based on average adult dogs with normal activity levels. If your dog gets a lot of daily exercise by going on daily runs or hikes with you, they may need more calories to meet his energy needs. Dogs who are less active and overweight may need a more managed daily caloric intake.
  • Age: As your dog grows, their nutritional needs change. If your dog is still a puppy, they will need puppy food for growth and development.

 

Once you find a complete and balanced food that meets your dog’s individual needs, you can determine how much food to feed him. The dog feeding chart on the back of his dog food package can help guide you.

 

How Often Should I Feed My Dog?

 

Set mealtimes are recommended for most dogs for a variety of reasons. Keeping mealtimes consistent, as well as the type and amount of food you feed him, will help him maintain both their digestive health and their weight. For most dogs, feeding twice each day—once in the morning and once in the evening—is appropriate.

 

Why Does My Dog’s Food Amount Matter?

 

The right kind of nourishment helps keep your dog healthy. Overfeeding your dog can cause weight gain, which can lead to joint problems and other health issues.

Keeping portion sizes consistent and appropriate based on age, weight and activity levels will help  maintain an ideal weight.
