Dog food: how much and how often?

When you’re choosing your next best dog food producer in Australia, you’ll have to make the choice between different food types. The best type is usually dependent on things like your dog’s breed, gender, age, weight level, activity level, and temperament. It may be time-consuming, but you need to buy products that have high-quality ingredients and make sure it is full of the nutrients your dogs need. The perfect nutritional balance includes things like proteins, good fats, minerals, vitamins, complex carbs, and water. When you find the right food for your furry pal, you need to get clued up on how often you should feed them and what is healthy amounts. We hope that reading through this will help you navigate what is best for your dog. This guide, in combination with professional advice from your vet, is the best way to reap the health benefits your pup needs and help them lead a happy, energetic life.

How much and how often should I feed my dog?

Different dogs have different nutritional needs and so there is no basic answer to this question. This also depends on the dog food you use and the low-fat protein chews you may want to integrate into the entire diet. Dog food can vary from bag to bag, brand to brand, and ingredients, so figuring out exactly how much to feed, can be difficult. We have a little guide below, but we still suggest that you consult a professional who can tell you exactly what is required backed by evidence.

What should I feed my dog?

Your dog’s health will require that you give them food with all the necessary ingredients and nutrients. It should be a balanced meal, moderate to their unique needs, with enough elements to make up for any physical health concerns they have. Breeds that are prone to bone disease or are typically more active than others, should have higher calories and protein levels, while less active dogs may require a food that is lower in calories.

How much dog food is enough?

Whooch is very strict about giving detailed information about how much you should be giving your pup. This is especially the case when it comes to our hemp-infused products but it is also up to you to pay attention to the details on your doggy food package. These charts are a required part of every dog food package, and they can help you determine the daily amount you should be feeding. They’ll have initial recommendations and amounts for you to go by, but you are well within your right to adjust them based on how your dog reacts to them.

When to feed my dog?

The general recommendation for feeding adult dogs is two feedings a day. One in the morning and another one in the evening as a rule of thumb. If this is what you want to implement for your pup’s new eating routine, you need to make sure you keep with these mealtimes and give them consistent food amounts to help your dog maintain both healthy digestion and weight.Your schedule shouldn’t be the only thing dictating mealtimes because they should also take your dog’s patterns into account.

Choosing the right food for your dog

With a Whooch packaged food bundle, you can be sure that your dog has access to highly nutritious food snacks that have many benefits. Our premium food blends come with detailed and personalized daily feeding amount recommendations and instructions. We print this information clearly on the packaging and they are easy to work through. Daily feeding amounts are determined by your dog’s size and breed, but you are welcome to consult a professional to help determine the perfect amount for feeding each day.

It also wouldn’t hurt to test things out first with your dog and that’s the best way to establish a new rhythm that works for you both. This works perfectly for new food, different mealtimes, or certain amounts. Even if you can’t read your dog’s mind, they will usually give you signs that they like something or they don’t. If they are leaving food in the bowl after they’re done, it is likely that you are overfeeding them. And if they show signs of some sickness after eating what you gave them, an allergy or bad food could be the cause. All it takes is a little care and consideration to watch your dog as they respond to feeding times and you can find the perfect solution for you.
