  • Feeding Guide

    How to adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal weight.

    These ranges are a starting point only, because dogs' needs vary.  Adjust the feeding amount as necessary. To correct obesity, the amount to be fed should be based on the estimated  ideal weight (target weight) and not the weight when obese.
