    Defaultdog food calorie calculator. What do you think?

    Has anyone seen this dog food daily calorie calculator, or anything like it?

    Try it with your dogs and see if you think it's about right. And if you need to know the caloric content of your dog food, you can probably find it here.

    "If" (big if there) I did it right it says Bogey would need 4 1/2 cups a day. That seems like alot.

    GROSSLY inflates the amount of daily food/kcals needed. I had to enter 44% of Puff's weight before it gave appropriate results. Puff has always been judged by vets as having an ideal weight.

    Was this set up by someone selling dog food in the hope it'd result in increased sales?

    It's terrible!

    Wrong! Says Abbey needs 5.5 cups/day..! She gets less than half that and is in great body condition.

    I was thinking the same thing. It had Sally needing over 4 cups/day. But I'm sooooo bad at anything with numbers, I thought maybe I wasn't doing it right.

    Kodi: gets 2 cups a day. Calculator says she should get 6.5!
    Hoss gets 3.5 a day. Calculator said he should get 5.3!
