Oh my! When I see those overweight doggies waddling around the dog park, I wonder if their owners have even reviewed this dog feeding guide.
Feeding dogs is not rocket science, you can easily determine how much is enough with this dog food feeding chart, and adjust the suggested amounts accordingly.
The following guide for feeding dogs is for the mature dog, not the puppy.
|Weight In LBs||Calories Needed||Dry (cups)|
Best practice, no matter what type of dog food you feed your dog, is to feed 2 smaller meals a day. I find that feeding my dog at regular intervals, once in the morning and again when I have my own supper keeps Jasper in Top Dog shape.
|Weight In LBs||Calories Needed||13oz. Canned|
|50||1150||2 - 3|
|60||1300||3 - 3 1/2|
|90||1775||4 - 5|
|120||2200||5 - 6|
Those overweight doggies usually suffer from too much food (duhh!). Being overweight for a dog can be just as traumatic as an overweight person.
If your dog is carrying around more fat than he should, he may be heading for knee or hip problems. This is undue suffering and more exercise and less calories is in order right away!
When feeding dogs, please take the time to actually measure the food, whether it be dry dog food or canned dog food.
