Puppies : see chart to the left.
Overweight dogs : For a dog with low exercise or that is overweight, then feeding around 2% or less of their body weight is appropriate.
Underweight dogs : For a dog that is underweight you should feed 3 to 3.5% of their ideal full grown adult weight until they reach their ideal weight then feed around 2.5%.
Larger breed dogs : have slower metabolisms so they tend to need the lower % and small breeds have a high metabolism so often more than 3% .
