A Dog Feeding Chart: What Is It and Why Should I Use One

  • 3 min read

New to the dog parent scene? Welcome to the pack! You might've stumbled across the term "feeding chart" and wondered what all the hype is about. Think of a dog feeding chart as your ultimate cheat sheet for figuring out how much to feed your furry buddy each day. Even seasoned dog owners find them handy, especially when switching up foods or noticing changes in their dog's health or eating habits. Our cold-pressed dog food comes with its own feeding guide.

So, what’s the deal with a dog feeding chart, and why should you use one? Let’s dig in. First off, remember there’s no one-size-fits-all chart. Each manufacturer has its own version tailored to their recipes. Always stick to the chart that comes with your dog food brand.

Dog Feeding Chart Basics

Picture a table with columns and rows – that’s your feeding chart. It offers baseline feeding recommendations based on your dog's weight and age. At Nextrition, we publish a unique chart for each recipe, found under 'feeding instructions' on the recipe page. We also recommend getting a free personalized feeding plan by taking a short questionnaire on our website that will factor in your dog’s age, weight, activity level and more for a precise feeding amount of our cold-pressed dog food. 

The first column in a feeding chart lists your dog's weight. The next columns suggest how much food to feed daily. These guidelines assume your dog is healthy and has a normal appetite.
Nextrition is a game-changer. Our cold-pressed dog food is crafted from all-natural ingredients, making it hypoallergenic and gut-friendly for dogs of all breeds. Your dog needs less of our cold-pressed goodness because our kibble is more nutrient-dense than traditional kibble. Our feeding chart won't apply to other brands because our recipes are one-of-a-kind, packed with specific ingredients and nutritional values. Below is an example of our custom feeding plan.

Why Use a Feeding Chart

Why bother with a feeding chart? For starters, dog food brands aren't created equal. Nextrition’s cold-pressed dog food is light-years ahead of the usual dry kibble. Our unique ingredients and cold-pressing process retains more of the natural nutrients and flavors that kibble burns off and is more nutrient dense than traditional kibble.

The dog food you buy should come with a feeding chart right on the packaging. Once you get the hang of it, you might not need to check the chart often. But if you switch foods, even within the same brand, always check the new chart.

Other Considerations

Feeding charts help prevent underfeeding or overfeeding by considering your dog's weight and size. For example, an overweight dog needs fewer calories. A feeding chart guides you on the right amount to feed based on weight, helping you maintain a healthy balance.

These charts are flexible tools. By keeping an eye on your dog's weight and condition, you can adjust feeding amounts as needed. Just remember, feeding charts are general guides. Your dog might have special dietary needs not covered by the chart.

If you’re ever worried about overfeeding or underfeeding your dog, don't hesitate to consult your vet. They can provide personalized advice, whether you’re feeding Nextrition cold-pressed dog food or another top brand of dry kibble.
