Proper Poodle Care: Diet and Feeding

Proper Poodle care will include many factors that foster learning healthy behavioral patterns while maintaining excellent health. Read on to find out how to feed Poodle puppies properly.

What Poodles Should Eat

Poodles should eat a high-quality, protein-rich diet, which typically includes chicken, beef, turkey, pork, duck, or fish. There are also other good options for nutrients besides meat: grains, like rice; fruits, such as apples; and vegetables, like pumpkins, peas, and carrots. Poodles need fats, vitamins, minerals, and fiber to stay healthy.

How Much Food You Should Feed Them

 The nutritional requirements of your Poodle will be determined mostly by its size, activity level, age, metabolism, and overall health. The trick is not to overfeed or underfeed your dog.

Standard Poodles should eat twice daily to help them digest food, reduce hunger, and avoid bloating, which can be life-threatening. Toy and Miniature Poodles, on the other hand, may prefer two to three meals a day.

How Often You Should Switch Their Food

 A fast change in food can upset the dog’s stomach and cause digestive problems. To change food, have the current and new food on hand and gradually switch over three weeks. You can mix the old food with the new one by following this guide:

  • Week 1: 3/4 Old Food, 1/4 New Food
  • Week 2: 1/2 Old Food, 1/2 New Food
  • Week 3: 1/4 Old Food, 3/4 New Food
  • Week 4: Complete Switch to New Food
