Feeding The Correct Amount
It is important to remember however that these figures are guidelines only, and there are several factors to be taken into account when assessing your pet’s nutritional requirements : -
- Activity level
- Temperament (stressed animals burn off more calories than relaxed ones)
- Metabolism (every animal is an individual with his or her own speed of metabolism; this means that 2 dogs of the same age, breed and weight could have different daily calorie requirements)
In order to provide the correct portions when feeding your dog or cat, it is also helpful to assess your pet’s appetite, visual appearance and stools. Whilst poo watching does not sound particularly pleasant, it is one of the best indicators of health. Increased frequency of passing faeces, production of large quantities of stools of loose motions are often frequent signs that an animal is receiving more food than he or she requires.
It is important to obtain an accurate weight for your cat or dog, and also to weigh out the food. Guessing on both accounts gives a large margin of error.
Changing Food Brands
For a successful diet change, we recommend following the feeding pattern below. The daily feeding amount should be split into two equal amounts and the proportions of new food increased over the first week as illustrated.
TOP TIPS: For those dogs who do not make eating a priority, here are some additional points:
- Reduce the number of tit-bits given during the introductory period
- If your dog has been used to eating wet food, moisten with warm water.

Happy puppyFirst time puppy owner so unsure what to choose re kibble. Both lab puppy and I very happy with this choice. His coat is very shiney and smooth now and often get comments on how soft he is. Good size pieces too which help with the slow feeder we use.
ExcellentGood product, good price and excellent service
barking mad!!I always fed my dogs Hill's diet and to find this great product at such competitive price is wonderful!! I also always come back to this website when I'm re-ordering, the free delivery is fast and never had a problem! You must be barking mad to go elsewhere!!
Excellent productI feed my dog on Hills Prescription Diet so as Hills Science Plan was on my local animal charity's online wish list I purchased a couple of bags for them.
Amazing!!! the price is amazing too on the website, much cheaper than pets at home! my puppy is now 5months,a black Labrador, and his coat shines as never before, i always get compliments of how gorgeous he looks. of course i really give him only the guided amount of dry food, nothing else, (except apples which he loves, and carrots) :)
