Feeding amounts are all listed on each Dog Food's page, however, we have included more detailed information below.

Here comes the science part:-

Clinivet Puppy

Puppies can be weaned onto Clinivet Puppy from three to four weeks of age. For the first few feeds, the kibble should be soaked thoroughly in lukewarm water.

How much food should I feed my pup?

Puppies need a total of 30 – 50g of food per kg of body weight per day and this total should be divided into a number of daily feeds. Very young puppies need four to five feeds per day. From four months of age this can be reduced to two or three feeds per day up to 12 months of age. It is important to keep fresh drinking water available at all times.    

Large Breed Puppy

Clinivet Large Breed Puppy is suitable for the larger breed of dog (those which will have an expected adult weight of greater than 45kg). Puppies can be weaned onto Clinivet Large Breed Puppy from three to four weeks of age. For the first few feeds, the kibble should be soaked thoroughly in lukewarm water. Puppies need a total of 30 – 50g of dog food per kg of body weight per day and this total should be divided into a number of daily feeds. Very young puppies need four to five feeds per day. From four months of age this can be reduced to two or three feeds per day up to 12 months of age. It is important to keep fresh drinking water available at all times. Please note this should be used as a guide as your dog’s needs may vary depending on age, size and condition. More exact guidelines are available on the product page.

Clinivet Adult Junior, Adult Senior, Adult Light & Adult Energy

When introducing Clinivet Adult Small or Clinivet Adult Large, do so gradually over several days. These dogs need a total of 10 to 30g of food per kg of body weight per day. Adjust this if necessary to maintain the ideal body weight. We suggest this amount should be split into two daily feeds. This food can be fed dry or moist. It is important to keep fresh drinking water available at all times.

The overweight cat needs approximately 10 to 20g of cat food per kg of body weight per day. Adjust this if necessary to maintain the ideal body weight. It is important to keep fresh drinking water available at all times. If you are introducing Clinivet cat food for the first time, it is important to introduce the pet food gradually over a period of seven days. Any sudden changes in the diet can lead to problems with the digestive system, such as an upset stomach and diarrhoea.
