How will I know if I’m feeding my dog or my cat the right amount of food?

December 16, 2014

There are a few indications that you can look for to see if you’re feeding your pet the right amount of food. Loose stools are a common symptom of over feeding. Obesity is another common problem of overfeeding and can be the cause of some serious health issues.

If your pet seems heavier than normal, decrease the amount of food you normally give and more importantly, try to increase the exercise he gets. If you feel that your pet is too thin, you may need to increase the amount of food during meal time. A pet getting thinner over time on the same amount of food may indicate a medical condition to be checked by your vet.
