When working out your dog’s daily nutritional requirements we recommend taking into account your dog’s activity level, age and weight.
You also need to consider your pet’s current weight, are they overweight? Or could they benefit from gaining a little extra weight?
There is no hard-and-fast rule, but a dog weighing over 10 kg should consume roughly 2% -3% of their body weight in food every day.
So for example a 20 kg dog should be eating roughly 400g on 2% or 600g on 3%
As an owner you should be watching your pet’s weight, if they are becoming heavy then feed them a little less and if you feel they could do with more coverage then increase their daily amount. Ideally you will feed your pet their daily amount over 2 meals during the day.
For your puppy or kitten we would recommend around 5% – 8% of their bodyweight.
Feed your puppy or kittens the recommended amount over three to four meals a day.
As a rule of thumb the following applies but we must stress all dogs are different:
1kg – 2kg 10% of bodyweight
3kg – 4kg 7% of bodyweight
5kg – 8kg 5% of bodyweight
9kg-10kg 3% of bodyweight
10kg and over 2% of bodyweight
