How Much Food Should I Feed My Dog?

Answer

These guidelines are usually based on the weight of your dog (ie: one cup for every 50 pounds of dog, twice daily), and are a rough estimate of how much your dog needs to meet his nutritional needs. Every dog food bag should come with a set of feeding guidelines specific to that dog food.

The amount of food dogs need to eat depends on their size, energy level, daily activities and health. There is no set formula for determining how much food to feed a dog, check with your vet to determine what amount might work for your dog.
How much food you should feed your dog depends on what your dog weighs, the age of your dog, and what type of food you are feeding. Most dog foods have a recommendation per pound, this is a good guideline to follow. When in doubt ask your vet how much they recommend.
