Dog Feeding Guide

A nutritionally balanced diet is crucial for the healthy growth and development of your puppies or dogs. It also prepares your furry pal for an active and healthy life ahead. That’s why we are on a mission to ensure that every dog is fed with good food and treats which are full of the nutrition your pet needs. Our range of dog food focuses on nourishment, flavours, and textures, so your pooch can enjoy a healthy meal. First-time dog owners are often confused about what to feed a dog. Feeding your dog or puppy properly is essential for its overall health. You must be aware about the ideal feeding schedule of your dog and know what type of food will keep it happy and healthy.

Frequency of feeding a dog or puppy

Puppies up to 3 months of age should be fed at least 4 times every day, and from 3 to 5 months of age, they require 3 meals per day. Pups over 5 months of age are best fed twice daily. Adult dogs can be provided with 1 to 2 meals a day; however, it is imperative to feed the right amount of food by following the feeding guide provided on the pack to ensure that your dog receives sufficient nutrition.

Dog food feeding guide

  • Pedigree® dry dog food: Introduce your dog to our dry food gradually. You can start substituting portions of their homemade meals with dry food and eventually feed the dog with dry food only.

  • Pedigree® wet dog food: The best way to feed your dog is by providing both dry and wet food every day. We recommend that you feed dry food in the morning and wet food in the evening.
  • Pedigree® dog dental care (dental treats) : If you want to see the best results of a dental chewstick, feed your pet 1 stick a day. It will effectively reduce tartar build up, clean hard-to-reach teeth, and support your dog’s gum health.
  • Pedigree® dog treats: Only 10% of your dog’s daily calories should come from treats. Hence, follow the feeding guide provided on the back of each pack.
