Many people struggle when it comes to feeding their pet and one of the most common questions we get is “How much should I feed my dog or cat?”
The good news is that the right answer for how much to feed most pets can summarised with some simple rules:
Invest in a nutritionally balanced diet
Stick to something that’s nutritionally balanced – ask us for a recommendation.
Measure, Measure, Measure and be consistent
This is essential if you want to get your pet’s portion just right. Stick to the same brand and formula.
Assess if you’re feeding too much or too little
We’ll be able to help you decide if your pet has a healthy body condition score and you will need to adjust as necessary.
Don’t Forget That Treats Count
Treats are food too, and they’re usually more dense in calories.
Take in to account exercise levels and age of your pet
Younger and more active pets may have a higher calorie requirement than the quieter and older pet.
Remember that we are the best place to seek advice when it comes to feeding your pet and always keep in mind that every animal is different…take these two dogs on YouTube for example
