Feeding Tips: How Often Should You Feed Your Dog?

Dog Crazy Newsletter

By Petplace.com

I see dogs in my practice that are too fat, too thin and some that are just right. Dog lovers often ask many questions about nutrition and one very common question is – “How often should I feed my dog”? 

That is an excellent question and I’ll give you the answer right now.

• Puppies under 3 months of age should be fed at least four times a day.

• Puppies between 3 and 5 months of age should be given three meals a day.

• Adult dogs can be fed once or twice a day.

Whatever you feed, make sure it is a good quality fresh dog food formulated to meet your dog’s needs. That has been a recent interest in customized pet foods. Eukanuba has been a leader in creating foods specifically for certain breeds, sizes, ages and health conditions. These advancements have been fascinating (to me).

The choices and customization you can get for your dog is incredible. They have food formulated to meet different sizes such as small, medium and large breed dogs, certain ages such as puppies, adults and seniors but also they “feed the breed” and make foods specifically formulated for Labrador retrievers, Boxer, German shepherd dogs, dachshunds, and Yorkshire Terriers. Check out the choices Eukanuba offers.

Dogs like routine, so establish a feeding schedule and stick to it. A good time to feed him is during the family meals. This will occupy him while the rest of the family is eating.

Until next time,

P.S. Remember, good nutrition is critical to a dog’s health. Ensure you are feeding a food that is not only good quality but formulated to meet his needs. Eukanuba offers over 30 formulations to meet different needs. They have customized nutrition for different dogs based on the size, age, breed and specific health conditions. Check out their line of foods.  For more information, go to eukanubadogformulas.com.

  1. Just recently I have been looking in search of a bit of information on Eukanuba. Can it be true that the main ingredient is made from soya? Clearly there would be other things such as meat in it, but that doesn’t to me sound like a good base.
