You can calculate how much to feed your dog using our online feeding guide. This provides an estimated daily feeding amount based on a dog’s age, sex, breed, daily activity levels, weight, and any medical issues that apply. Follow the link to try it for yourself: Here you can create a personalised profile for your dog, with recommendations of a suitable diet for them, how much to feed them and how often to feed them.

It’s also important to note that when portioning your dog’s food, we do recommend weighing it using calibrated scales to ensure feeding amounts are accurate and precise.
