Your dog may become malnourished if you give them insufficient food.


However, overfeeding your dog will eventually lead to obesity and the associated health problems, such as:


  • Musculoskeletal problems like osteoarthritis, cruciate ligament ruptures, and intervertebral disk disease

  • Reduced quality of life and shortened life span

  • Heart failure

  • Some types of cancer

  • Labored breathing

  • Cushingโ€™s disease

  • Skin disorders

Giving your dog the recommended serving size of high-quality dog food will boost their general health and keep them in good spirits.

These sums offer you the total suggested for your dog throughout a 24-hour period, unless otherwise noted.


You must divide the amount in the table by the number of meals you are providing because most adult dogs should eat two meals a day and puppies frequently need three or more feedings.
