How much should I feed my dog? No dog is created equal and with any feeding regimen there are things to take into consideration, like the age of your puppy/dog, the activity level, is she pregnant or a lactating/nursing mother. Below is a basic feeding guide...increase or decrease portions based upon the health of your dog.
Puppies under 6 months: 4.5% of puppy's weight, feed 3 times daily
Puppies over 6 months: 3.5% of puppy's weight, feed 2-3 times daily
Maintain adult weight: 2.5% of dog's weight, feed 1-2 times daily
Gain weight on adult: 3% of weight, feed 1-2 times daily
Weight loss on adult: 2% of weight, feed 1-2 times daily
Pregnant female: 3.5% of weight, feed 1-2 times daily
Nursing female: 6-8% of weight depending on the size of litter, feed 1-2 times daily
How to calculate: if your dog weighs 70lbs in order to maintain weight calculate 70 x.025=1.75lbs PER DAY, for 2 portions divide by 2. Remember to adjust accordingly.
