You need to take into consideration the amount of snacks you feed your pet during the day when calculating the daily meals, and adjust accordingly.

You should always monitor your dogs weight. If your pet increases in weight, reduce the daily intake with 10-20% until the desired weight has been reached. If you are in doubt whether your pet is overweight, please consult a vet.
