Feeding

Since the breed’s weight varies greatly, so won’t the amount of portion they get during feeding. Naturally, how much your dog eats differs from others. Elements like age, metabolism, activity range can all play a part in how much the Xoloitzcuintli eats. Spaying and neutering can also play a contributing role in their portions.

That said, most enthusiasts suggest feeding the Xoloitzcuintli a meat first ingredient and high quality formula. Quality crude fat and protein is a must. Some suggest 22% protein and 9% crude fat as part of the equation.

The Xoloitzcuintli can be fed between 0.5 cups to 1 3/4 cups per day. This can be broken up into two or three smaller meals. Breaking up meals helps with deadly disorders like Gastric Torsion but it also helps with keeping the dog from scourging.

As always, you should provide your Xoloitzcuintli with fresh drinking water.
