General Feeding Advice
Aim to feed 2-3% of your pet's ideal current body weight, typically split into two meals a day. For pets that need to put on weight or who have higher nutritional needs, increase the amount of each meal over a period of time until the optimum weight is achieved. If the animal needs to lose weight, reduce the amount fed per day.
Smaller dogs generally have a higher metabolism and may require slightly more, while large dogs generally require a little less.
The is intended as a starting guide only - Feeding should be tailored to the needs of the individual pet. The activity level, age and size of your dog or cat will ultimately determine how much to feed them.
Should generally be fed 5-6% of their body weight for their age, spread over three to four meals per day.
Reducing to two to three meals around 6 months of age.
As they approach maturity, start reducing the total daily amount to 2-3% of their estimated body weight.
Remember - there are no hard and fast rules for feeding - every animal has a different metabolism and nutritional requirements, so feeding should be tailored to suit your pet.
