Are you overfeeding your Goldendoodle or not feeding enough?
You can help your Goldendoodle maintain a healthy weight by feeding them less if they’re visibly overweight. In contrast, if a Goldendoodle maintains its weight despite eating the recommended amount of food, there is no need to reduce the amount they are eating.
You should provide your dog with a diet that contains at least 30% plant-based proteins and 10% fat. To meet your Goldendoodle’s nutritional needs, you may have to feed them more than traditional dog foods.
Feed him according to the recipe instructions on his package when it comes to feeding time. Also, make sure your dog has plenty of fresh water throughout the day since dehydration can cause weight gain and health issues.
It is a good idea to consult a vet before drastically changing a Goldendoodle diet if they do not maintain their weight despite eating the recommended amount of food every day or appear overweight.
