Using the guide above, divide the total per day by the total number of times you feed your dog per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Every dog is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size and activity level. Please use the information provided as an initial recommendation only and adjust when needed. Pregnant or nursing females may consume 2 - 3 times the recommended daily amounts. Dry and wet food in combination will help to increase the level of water in your dog's diet.

  • If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount by 1/4 cup for every 3 oz of wet food.

  • For dogs over 30 lbs: add 1/4 cup per additional 5 lbs.
