Feeding table for dogs

With our feeding table for puppies and adult dogs, it's easy to see which amount of food your dog needs.

How much food does my dog need?

The feeding amount depends on many aspects. Not only age and size of the dog, but also the kind of food are important. If you are feeding dry food to your dog you will need a smaller amount as with wet food. This is because of the processing.
Most of the moisture of dry food is removed while processing. With this, it shrinks in volume, but the nutritional value remains unchanged. In our feeding tables you can see that with PLATINUM dry food you will need about half of the amount compared to our wet food. This cannot be determined down to the last gram, since in addition to age, size and type of feeding, activity level, castration or individual predispositions can also matter. Feeding tables are therefore a good guide - but the right amount of food can vary from dog to dog.

From suckling to weaning    

The nutritional needs of the puppies increase rapidly and so after few weeks you should start to add some extra food to their diet. At the age of 3-4 weeks, depending on the breed and the number of puppies, you should start feeding a supplementary solid food. You start with one meal a day and this increases over time to four meals.

Our MENU Puppy Chicken wet food is very well suited to start feeding puppies after the suckling period. Mashing a small portion of the MENU Puppy Chicken wet food with some lukewarm water and then offering the puppies the resulting puree as a „first meal“ has proven successful. In the following days, you can gradually add more crumbled/blended puppy dry food to let the puree meal to set. Our Puppy dry food is very easy to crumble/blend thanks to a residual moisture content of 19% and the puppies are quite keen on the resulting small pieces. You can feed your dog PLATINUM dry and wet dog food for puppies separately or in combination.

Our Puppy Chicken puppy feed is premium quality. Please observe the following points when feeding it:

  • Portion out the feed dry or moistened with a little (ideally lukewarm) water.
  • Do not let it soak; feed it immediately.
  • Always have fresh water available.
  • Only feed more if needed.
  • Never overfeed puppies and young dogs.

Switching from puppy to adult feed

The timing of the transition from the puppy to adult feed depends, among other things, on the expected size and breed of your dog. Small breeds (such as the Dachshund and Pug) can be given the puppy feed up to 12 months of age. Medium-sized dogs (such as the Australian Shepherd and Border Collie) are usually switched after teething is complete (about 6 months), and large breeds (such as the Bernese Mountain Dog and Rhodesian Ridgeback) can already be given adult feed from the 4th month of age.

After the Puppy dog food, we recommend a change to Adult Chicken or MENU Chicken, as it has a very similar composition. Alternatively, our other two varieties are also possible, e.g. if individual intolerances exist. We recommend Iberico+Greens especially for sensitive or allergic dogs.

If the transition to adult feed takes place before the age of 1 year, then you should use the feeding recommendation on the puppy table below as a guide up to the end of the 12th month of age to ensure an adequate supply of nutrients.
