Why Is Calculating the Amount of Dog Food Important?

All dogs are different. Whether it is because of their breed, body weight, age, or activity level, different dogs have different energy needs. And it is extremely important to understand the correct amount of food that the dogs need as per their energy needs. Hence, it becomes necessary to calculate the amount of food to feed your dog, so they stay fit and healthy. Here are the common factors that can help determine the amount of food your dog needs:

  1. Age of your dog: Younger pups are more active and have higher metabolism rates, and hence, need more calories than adult and senior dogs. Puppies also need more protein, calcium, and phosphorus. Senior dogs have a low calorie and high protein requirement.
  2. Activity level: Active dogs need more calories than inactive dogs.
  3. Dog Food Type: The amount of dog food you should feed also depends on the type of food you select - wet or dry.
  4. Size of the dog: Small dogs have small stomachs and thus require high calorie-density from their food to ensure that they are fed well.

Other factors that may temporarily affect your dog’s food requirements include injuries or sickness (your dog may need more calories to heal faster), and pregnancy or lactation period (during which time a dog requires more calories).

Frequently Asked Questions on Dog Feeding Calculator

How do I know if I'm feeding my dog enough?

Always keep an eye on your dog’s behaviour and daily habits. If you suddenly notice a drop in their activity level or if you notice a sudden loss in their weight, one of the reasons for those changes might be improper or insufficient feeding. A toy breed dog weighing six pounds or less should consume one-third to about one-half cup of dog food per day. Dogs measuring thirty to fifty pounds, such as Australian shepherds and collies, require one-and-three-quarters cup to two-and-two-thirds cup of dog food each day.
