WHICH FACTORS DETERMINE THE ENERGY NEEDS OF A DOG?
01/10/2019

WHICH FACTORS DETERMINE THE ENERGY NEEDS OF A DOG?

Energy requirements are determined by several factors: 

1. Body weight or size of the dog 
It is evident that large dogs require more energy than small dogs. The body weight of the dog is, of course, the most important factor. It is important to know that energy requirements do not increase linearly. Small dogs have a higher metabolism and a relatively larger body surface (factor determining energy loss). Therefore, small dogs need relatively more energy as expressed per kg of body weight. The energy requirements for maintenance can be calculated with following for­mula: 
ME = 132kcal X BW0.75 
Where: 
ME = metabolic energy requirement 
BW = body weight in kg 
(BW)0.75 = metabolic weight

Are you choosing the right cat and dog food?

Are you choosing the right cat and dog food?

Sources and availability of different nutrients is key in the choosing right food for your dog. Pet foods vary in the quality of ingredients, formula and the nutritional value in the food. Premium and super premium pet foods typically have higher standards in each of these important variables.

Your pet’s nutritional needs are based on age, activity level, temperament, environment and physical make up. Look for a food that fits your pet and the environment rather than breed. If you’re unsure about what to feed your pet, contact your local Husse pet nutritionist. click here!
