For puppies:

Ideally your puppy should take:

  • 4 meals/day under 3 month old.
  • 2 meals/day from 3 to 6 month old.
  • 1 meal/day over 6 month old. However, during the transitionning phase, you can leave the number of meal as it is. Switching to one meal a day too fast is nos ideal for some dogs.

The table below will show you our recommended daily intake for your puppy based on its current weight and its future adult weight. To estimate the adult weight of your puppy, use the father as a reference for male puppies, and the mother for female puppies.

Example : A 5 kg puppy who will weigh 15 kg once adult will consume 161 gr/day.
This method is more accurate. It will provide better tracking of your puppy's growth.

The following daily intake may vary depending on breed, climate (cold-hot), temperament and activity level. Clean fresh water should be available at all times.
