There’s no magic formula when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight – it all simply boils down to calories in vs. calories out – and your pup is no different.  

The most effective way to help your pet maintain a healthy body weight is to provide some daily exercise and to closely regulate their food intake. A healthy weight results when energy consumption is balanced with energy intake.

The feeding guidelines on your pup’s Tailored recipe are an estimate of the amount of food they need to maintain body weight based on their energy requirements and the energy content of their personalized recipe.    

If you feel your pup is gaining or losing weight using their current feeding instructions, feel free to reach out to one of our knowledgeable Pup Success Specialists at 1-833-TAIL-101, who will help you adjust your pup’s feeding instructions to find the ratio that’s right for them.
