Food for large and very large dogs

How big is your dog? This depends on the height at its withers (this is the area where the dog’s neck and shoulders meet) and its weight. We use this to define three different categories: (1) small, (2) medium, (3) large and very large dogs.

If your dog’s height at the withers is between 45 cm and 60 cm and (as an adult) weighs between 25 kg and 45 kg, we class this as a large dog.
If your dog’s height at the withers is over 60 cm and (as an adult) weighs more than 45 kg, we class this as a very large dog.



A puppy has a greater energy requirement than an adult dog. Tune the dog food well to the age of your dog.

  • Puppy
    Because puppies have to build lots of new tissue, they have higher energy requirements than adult dogs.
  • Adult
    An adult dog requires high-fiber food that is easily digestible and low in calories.
  • Senior
    Food with fat-burning properties that reduces joint stiffness and boosts the immune system is the best option for older dogs.


To which category does your dog belong? That depends on his height at its withers and weight.

    Withers < 30 cm
    (Adult) weight < 10 kg
    Adult from +/- 10 months

    (Adult) weight : 10 kg - 25 kg
