One of the first purchases after having brought a cat or a dog to our home is a dispenser for water and dry food. These dispensers are very useful in a variety of occasions, for example if we want to manage our pet’s meals and nobody is home.
How much food should we give our pets?
The daily quantity of food for dogs varies according to their age, the time of year, the physical activity the dog has and the type of food it eats. It is always a good idea to alternate between dry food and wet food, because they each have specific properties that help maintain a healthy diet for your pet; should you decide to opt for a homemade diet instead, it is preferable to ask your vet for advice first.
Pet owners frequently ask how many times a day their furry friends should eat. The best solution is to pour a precise amount of food into their bowl in the morning (as agreed with your vet) in order to monitor how much they have eaten by the end of the day.
If for various reasons one leaves a pet at home for the weekend and still wishes to control their diet, food dispensers are available with a measure incorporated in the reservoir, that release food gradually as the pet eats it. Remember to consider the size of the container to make sure your pet gets enough food!
