Quan­tity of food

Animal Scene - - Q&A -

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.

There’s too much food in this dog’s bowl!
