As a guide we suggest starting:
Michie’s Puppy Weaning Mince between week 4 to 6/7 weeks of age.
Michie's Puppy Complete Meals from 7/8 weeks of age.
Michie's Adult Complete Meals from 12 months of age.
Please note this is only a guide, as puppies come in all different shapes and sizes, if in doubt please contact your breeder or contact us for more information/guidance.
To calculate the recommended amount of food required daily to keep your dog strong and healthy, please enter the approximate weight and activity level.
Please note this is only a guide as every dog is different. However generally speaking it is 2-4% of your dog's weight per day. This can increase to 4-6% for working dogs.
Puppies can require around twice as much food for the first few months of their lives, with the food consumption gradually decreasing as they grow. Every breed of puppy is different, so it is difficult for us to provide exact advice, but you can be assured the new addition to your family will let you know if they are still hungry.
Based on current guides as a basis you can increase the recommended quantities by the following:
First four weeks of pregnancy - increase normal amount of feed by 30%
Next 3 weeks of pregnancy - increase normal amount of feed by 50%
Final 2 weeks of pregnancy - provide free access to food. *Please note, we advise that you do not leave raw meats out for lengthy periods of time.
