Feeding Your Dog –Recommended Amounts

Saturday, December 3, 2016

dogeat5If you read the labels of your dog’s favorite foods, you will notice lots of discrepancies in the recommended amounts to feed him. The amount of food that you feed your dog will change throughout his life. Most weight problems develop slowly and are likely to occur during the transition period from puppy to adult. Remember, an adult dog’s appetite is always greater than his need. Another time when weight gain increases is when your dog gets older and his activity level decreases. Be aware of the need to adjust your dogs calories and give him periodic weight checks. This will help you with overfeeding during these transition times.

Knowing how much to feed your dog can be confusing. Always start with a quality food and note the feeding instructions on the bag or can. Then, add or decrease the amount depending on your dogs activity level. Start feeding this amount but monitor his weight on a regular basis. Make adjustments along the way and always check with your vet. So don’t overfill that dog dish right away!
