Feeding your dog the right amount of food is an important step in ensuring your pet remains healthy, happy and well fed.
To begin, you should put your dog on a weighing scale regularly to know how much they weigh. Use their weight to determine the recommended amount of food per day. Keep a record of their weight to ensure they're not being over or underfed.
There are many variables to consider when working out how much food your dog should eat such as metabolic rate, the type of food you feed and the activity levels of your dog. If you have a very active or very lethargic dog, adjust the amount of food to the higher or lower end of the suggested amount.
