Have used this product for many years after it was recommended by my vet for my Chihuahua who has a liver problem. She is not only thriving on it but she absolutely loves it and barks for it whenever meal time comes around.

How do I interpret the symbols showing(?) how much to give my dog? There is a bag (?) symbol, and another one, usually with a "1" in it. How much do I give my 30kg retriever?

  • VioVet Staff

A dog weighing 30 kg in the caned version would be expected to require between two and a third cans to three and a third cans per day. The same dog on just dried diet could be on 300g to 415g per day. These are just initial guidelines and all manufacturers tend to recommend quite generous amounts for average, well exercised dogs. It is always important to adjust the daily amount in response to the body "fat cover" of your own individual dog as time goes by. There is a huge amount of variability on how much food should be given so it is best not to rely on published guidelines beyond an initial trial period. After that you should increase of decrease the amount, depending on how thin or at your dog is. Retrievers tend to be hungry all the time unless they are over-fed, so you cannot rely on appetite. Always the correct amount to feed is simply that amount which produces the correct body weight. That is such a simple statement but it is by far the best guide you will ever come across.

Since retrievers tend to put on weight very easily, I would personally start at the bottom end of those ranges (say one can per day and 160g of kibble per day if you choose to feed a mix of wet and dried food), then weigh your dog in 2-3 weeks time and see if you need to change the amount. Some (especially neutered female) retrievers only need about half that amount to stay healthy. Some very active (mostly young male) retrievers might need more than the top amount recommended by Hills (although that is unusual). Do try to be guided by how slim or tubby your dog is. That is by far the healthiest thing to do. Ask your vet or vet nurse if your dog is the right bodyweight if you are unsure. (30kg would be fat for many retrievers but skinny for some.)
