Feeding Amounts

All the nutrients and nothing else

At Burns Pet Nutrition we know how easy it is to overfeed your dog and many pet parents tell us about it too.

Please use these charts below as a general guide to feeding your dog. Be mindful requirements do vary and depend on many factors like the age and breed of your pet, how active they are, whether they have been neutered, and other individual variations. A couple of tips:

  • If your pet is overweight, base the daily amount on target weight not actual weight.
  • Always make sure plenty of fresh water is available for your dog at all times. Being powered by Burns is thirsty work!

Great value for money

You might be surprised at how small the Burns pet food portion sizes look but this is precisely because our food has all the daily nutrients and vitamins needed to be easily digested, so a little really does goes a long way. In other words we are a premium brand that won’t break the bank.

If you need help or advice when it comes to feeding your dog, our friendly  team of dedicated Burns nutritionists are here to help you on 0800 083 6696, by email or on our Live Chat facility.
