Feeding Guide

How much you feed will vary depending on your dog’s age, breed and activity levels e.g. older dogs will require less than young/growing dogs. Young and growing dogs should be fed 2-3 times a day.

Pregnant bitches may need 50% more than their usual feed and lactating bitches up to four times their normal intake depending on litter size and body condition.

Ensure clean, fresh drinking water is available to your dog at all times.
