Ideal feeding amounts will vary by age, weight, and activity level so the guide below should be used as an initial recommendation. Divide the cups per day by the number of feedings per day. Be sure to always provide clean, fresh water. Along with dry food, we recommend feeding raw or wet food to help increase the amount of water in your pet’s diet.
Daily Feeding Guidelines (standard 8 oz dry measure cup):
Adult Maintenance (cups per day): 5-15 lb: ½ – 1 cup; 16-25 lb: 1 – 1 ¼ cups; 26-50 lb: 1 ¼ – 2 ¼ cups; 51-75 lb: 2 ¼ – 3 cups; 76-100 lb: 3 – 3 ¾ cups
Weight Loss (cups per day): 5-15 lb: ¼ – ½ cup; 16-25 lb: ½ – ¾ cup; 26-50 lb: ¾ – 1 ½ cups; 51-75 lb: 1 ½ – 2 cups; 76-100 lb: 2 – 2 ¼ cups
Puppies (Except Large Breed [70+lbs as an adult]): Feed up to twice the adult maintenance amount.
