Frequently Asked Questions about Dog Foods

What is the best time of the day to feed my dog?

There is no set best time of the day to feed your dog, but getting on a regular schedule is important. Many experts recommend feeding dogs twice a day, roughly 12 hours apart, with timing adjusted to fit your regular schedule. Spacing meal times out more than 12 hours can lead to tummy troubles from acid, while free feeding can lead to unwanted weight gain. Feeding your dog in the morning when you eat breakfast and in the evening during dinner can help him feel like part of the family routine. Find times that work well for you and try to stick to the schedule to help your dog stay healthy and feel secure.

Does dog food expire?

Dog food does expire. Check product packaging for best-by dates and follow all instructions for proper handling and storage.

How do I choose the best food for my dog?

Choose the best food for your dog by considering a variety of factors. The best dog food will be a balanced recipe made for your dog's specific life stage, breed and lifestyle. Look for complete formulas with real meat ingredients and few fillers or artificial ingredients. Your veterinarian should be able to recommend some good options based on your canine's age, size, habits and health history. You can also use the product filters on the Chewy site to find a formula that perfectly fits your pup's needs!
