Cocker Spaniel

Feeding

Because the Cocker Spaniel is susceptible to allergen issues, you will want to watch what you feed this dog. Stay away from filler canine food and avoid feeding them wheat or corn.

High quality dog food with meat as the first ingredient is always recommended. This breed is no different when it comes to healthy balance. 

An ordinarily active dog should be getting around 600 calories per day or so, while a moderately active Cocker should be  consuming 750 calories and over 1000 calories for the hunting and hyperactive Cocker spaniel.

A protein source like lamb, beef, chicken or fish is fine. Mixed in with essential omega vitamins and rice. 18 to 22 percent protein intake per day, and about 5 to 8 percent fat intake per day will suffice their dietary needs.

According to Dog Food Advisor, you can feel a Cocker with an average activity rate half a cup to nearly a whole cup of top rated dog food , while an active Cocker Spaniel should be consuming 1 to 1.5 cups per day.

As always, you should have clean and fresh drinking water available for your dog.
