Quantity of food
How much should I feed my dog every day?
When feeding your dog, you have to consider the body weight of the dog. medium to large sized dog weighing about 21-50 pounds or lbs (10 to 23 kilograms or kg) should be fed 2 1/2 cups to 4 cups per day, says Katy. Don’t fall prey to your dog begging for more food; obesity can hurt your dog and even kill it. Stick to a regular feeding schedule so that he or she learns when it’s time to eat and to control his or her appetite otherwise. Remember to adjust the food portions, though, if your dog is more active than usual or pregnant; ask your veterinarian for the best quantity to feed.
