How much and how often does a puppy eat?
In the table on the left you can find the weight your puppy will have when he is an adult. Then you look at how old your puppy is at the moment. In the row below you will see how many meals your puppy can eat per day. Until they are 6 months old, divide the amount over 3 meals. Later you can switch to 2 meals. At recommended quantity you can see how many grams your pup can eat per DAY. This amount you then divide over the number of meals your puppy can eat.
Just sketch using an example: You have a 5 month old boxer puppy. A boxer as an adult dog weighs about 25kg, so on the left you look at the 25kg. Now the puppy is 5 months old, so you look at the top between 4-6 months. There you see that your pup is allowed to eat 3 times a day. So your pup can eat 380gr per day and this you divide over three meals, you give your pup then morning, midday and evening each time approximately 126gr.
How much and how often does a dog eat?
For adult dogs:
In the left table you will see the weight of your dog. In the first row on the right you see the activity level of your dog. Look at the weight of your dog and his activity level, how many grams your dog can eat per day. This weight you may then divide over 2 meals.
Let me give you an example: You have a Boxer that is 2 years old, weighs 22kg and is very active. Then you see that your dog is allowed to eat 330gr per day which you can divide over two meals.
