Just like people, dogs need different amounts of food depending on their size, any health conditions or their level of activity. There will likely be an element of trial and error when you’re first getting to know your dog, but this guide is a great place to start.


If you are unsure about whether your dog is eating the right amount, you should always consult a vet. They will be able to tell if your dog is underweight or overweight, and give dietary advice accordingly. Like baby humans, puppies need to be fed three to four times per day, and an adult dog should usually be fed twice a day.


This guide is a great starting point for checking your dog’s portion sizes. At Me & My Pets we advise that you always check that feeding guide on the side of the food packet in case there are special instructions.


If you have any concerns about your dog’s weight, health or eating habits then you should always consult your vet.
