How Much To Feed: I recommend feeding around half a cup of food for every 20-25 pounds of body weight. This is just a guideline. Lazy pets and older dogs may not need that many. It is extremely important to consult your veterinarian to determine the best serving size for your dog.
All dogs have specific nutritional needs, especially dogs with cancer. Your dogs’ needs will depend on many factors, including the type of cancer, treatment, age, breed, and ideal weight. Therefore, It is imperative that you consult your veterinarian about the appropriate portion size for your dog.
