Feeding Guides

How much Tucker Time should I feed:

The exact amount of Tucker Time to feed depends on your dog, its age and lifestyle, and other factors, such as activity level.

If Tucker Time is the sole diet for your pet, the following provides an approximate guide of the daily feeding amount recommended. Consult your veterinarian for tailored advice specific for your pet.

30kg 700g 800g
40kg 900g 1kg
50kg 1.1kg 1.2kg

For Lite and Mature with Joint Support, the daily feeding amount depends on whether weight loss is desired and the activity level of the dog:

Single Meat Protein Kangaroo has lower calories than the remainder of the range. It may be used as a maintenance diet, or is suitable as a weight loss or reduced fat diet:
Dog weight Weight loss desired / low activity level Maintenance of current weight / high activity level
5kg 150g 250g
10kg 325g 425g
15kg 475g 575g
20kg 625g 725g
30kg 875g 975g
40kg 1.1kg 1.2kg
50kg 1.3kg 1.4kg

We recommend dividing the total amount of food daily into two meals. Always ensure that plenty of fresh, cool drinking water is available for your dog.

These are guides only. Monitor your dog’s body condition and adjust the feeding level accordingly to maintain its ideal bodyweight. Consult your veterinarian for further advice.

If Tucker Time is part of a mixed diet, not the entire diet, reduce daily feeding level in proportion to the amount of the diet which it fulfils, e.g. if Tucker Time is intended to provide 50% of the total daily energy requirement, halve the suggested amount of Tucker Time fed to your dog (reduce by 50%) and provide the remaining 50% of the daily calories required via an alternative dog food.

Tucker Time Puppy Care is designed for growing puppies of all breeds, including large and giant breeds. It is suitable to feed from the time of weaning. It is also ideal for pregnant females in the later stages of pregnancy, as well as lactating females feeding a litter of pups.

The amount of food a puppy requires changes during its growth for two reasons. Firstly, because its weight is changing – a puppy should always be fed Tucker Time according to its current weight, not its expected adult weight. Secondly, the energy needs of a puppy change as it grows – a puppy up to 6 months old requires far more energy per kilogram of bodyweight as it is growing so fast. The growth rate of pups slows a little after 6 months, so the energy requirement drops back a little too. It is important not to overfeed older pups as a little extra weight as a pup can make it much more likely that the dog will be overweight as an adult. Puppies should be transitioned onto adult varieties of Tucker Time at around 12 months of age.

The exact amount of Tucker Time to feed depends on your puppy, its age and lifestyle, and other factors, such as activity level.

If Tucker Time is the sole diet for your pup, the following provides an approximate guide of the daily feeding amount recommended. Consult your veterinarian for tailored advice specific for your pet.

Puppy current weight Puppy up to 6 months of age / highly active older pup Puppy older than 6 months
5kg 300g 400g
10kg 600g 700g
15kg 800g 900g
20kg 1.0kg 1.1kg
25kg 1.2kg 1.3kg
30kg 1.4kg 1.5kg
35kg 1.6kg 1.7kg

We recommend dividing the total amount of food daily into two to four meals for the puppy – three or four meals for young pups and two for older pups. Always ensure that plenty of fresh, cool, drinking water is available for your pup.
