# Daily and monthly feeding recommendations

Our feeding tables show the feeding guide for petgood dog food for adult dogs. The recommended consumption depends on your dog's body weight and activity level (i.e. low, medium, high). Bear in mind that different breeds require different exercise levels to stay happy and healthy. If you want more guidelines on how to feed your spayed or neutered dog, click here.

The feeding advice is based on a normal energy requirement for your dog. The body condition of your dog is the guidance to the actual feeding amount. When needed, you can give more or less in order to keep your dog in optimal condition. It is advised to divide the daily amount of food in two portions. Be sure you provide your dog enough drinking water.

Examples:

1: A 7,5 kg female pug living in a flat going on walks.
Follow the low activity-table. This gives us 120 grams per day for this dog, divided into two meals = 60 grams per feeding.

2: A 30 kg male labrador, neutered, daily long walks and occasional runs.
Follow the medium activity-table. This gives us 400 grams per day for this dog, divided into two meals = 200 grams per feeding.

3: A 12 kg female kelpie, trains a lot of agility and tracking, runs with owner on bike and is always on high alert.

Follow the high activity-table. This gives us approximately 225 grams per day for this dog, divided into two meals = 113 grams per feeding.

Remember that these are just guidelines - you might have to adjust the amount up or down as there are multiple factors affecting your dog's energy need. Always make adjustments depending on your dog's body condition.

# Monthly food consumption

If following the daily feeding recommendation above, the monthly consumption of petgood adult food will be according to the table below. When you sign up for a subscription, this table facilitates for you to calculate how much food you will require each month. Too have an extra margin, we suggest you round up to the closest kg.

# Body Condition Score

We also want to emphasise the importance of keeping an eye on your dog's weight and body condition on a regular basis, and refer to the Body Condition Score. This tool has been developed by WSAVA, the World Small Animal Veterinary Association, to help dog owners check their dog's body condition. See more here at the article covering Body Condition Score.
