Many factors such as environmental conditions, activity level, the stage of life and individual variation (temperament, stress) can affect the amount of food needed. The owner should monitor body weight and condition, and adjust the quantity fed according to veterinary advice.
Science Plan Puppy should not be supplemented because additional food and supplements may upset the nutritional balance.
Fresh water should be available at all times.

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.

Perfect for my pupTried several puppy foods before this one. All gave my pup a runny tum. This one is great, he loves it and has firmed up his stools! Looks and smells fairly appealing too! Cheapest price going on the web. Quick delivery. 5*
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) :)
Having enjoyed puppy Large Breed for his first year, H is now moving up a level. A healthy coat, good teeth and a happy dog are testament to the mix, which I would award 5.
As always the food is well packaged, but when ordering on-line from Petsupermarket be aware that the delivery can and usually does, take 10 days to arrive. 5 working days for despatch and another 5 for YODEL to deliver it to the door. Of course you could pay to have it arrive more quickly!
I have 2x11 week old labrador puppies who love and are thriving on this food. Hill`s was the food my puppies were fed on when we got them a week ago and was advised to keep them on it, which I am more than happy to do. I would definitely recommend buying from Pet Supermarket I couldn`t believe how fast the delivery was. I ordered at 3:30pm Friday and received AM Monday, I`m amazed! I will certainly buy this and other items from you again, very soon. A big thankyou from a very happy customer and 2 happy pup
Swapped our working cocker spaniel`s diet to this as he was putting on weight with his previous dry food. He soon lost weight and enjoys the food.
