Re: Exactly How Much of this do i feed?


It’s Tuesday, Cloudy, rainy and cooool..

When the weather gets like this I can’t help but imagine
How the beach is in a tropical climate like Mexico.

Once the snow comes my mood lifts, and I see a fresh dusting
in the mountains, so skiing will start soon.

In working on the membership site and answering some of
your questions, I want to deal with this BIG ONE..

Doc..How Much Do I Feed?

Here’s How You can get an EXACT amount..

First we have to figure out your pet’s energy requirements.

RER stands for Resting Energy Requirement.

The RER is the basic amount of energy that your pet would use in a
day while remaining at rest. The formula to calculate RER for animals
between 2 and 45 kg (5 – 99 pounds) is:

RER in kcal/day = 30(body weight in kilograms) + 70

Any activity or variable other than rest will require an increase in
energy (RER) and an increase in calories to meet the energy needs.

Realize that these numbers are not a reflection of maintenance calories
but of resting energy levels.

Here are some calculations for energy requirements.

Weight Loss..1.0RER
Normally Active 1.5RER
Puppy and Kitten 0-4 months 3.0RER
Puppy and Kitten 4 months-Adult 2.0RER
Pregnat Female First 4 weeks 2.0RER
Pregnant Female Last 4 weeks 3.0RER
Lactating Female 5.0RER
So is that NOT as CLEAR as mud????????????
So to break this down into the real world.

An average dog ie Lewis consumes approx 1 cup of dry quality
dog food per 20lbs of body weight. He weighs 93lbs
or around 40kg.

 He eats 5 cups a day.

Lewis’s RER is his body weight 40kg*30= 1200+70= 1270

Lewis’s Maintenance energy requirement is 1.5 * 1270 which is
1900 kcal/day.

Lewis’s dog food has 400 kcal/cup.

Therefore Lewis should be consuming 5 cups a day.

As part of the membership site UPGRADE, I am going to
make this EASY for you to figure out, INCLUDING
How MUCH of a Home Diet and How Much Raw Food
you should be feeding.


P.S. I am very close to finishing a HUGE Upgrade to My Membership site
Dr Andrew Jones’ Inner Circle.

I have been working on this for more than 4 months.

The Membership Site is now being changed so you can more quickly
and easily give your dog or cat the best alternative care with
guidance from me, Dr Andrew Jones.

It will include Over 3 hours of Coaching Videos,  More access to me
with a monthly teleseminar, more interaction with other concerned
pet owning members,  PLUS an instructional Audio
CD or DVD sent to your home every month.

I am not leaving Anything out- I reveal every possible way for you
to examine, diagnose and treat your dog or cat.

I want you to become an empowered pet owner who can comfortably
perform all these “veterinary” tasks at home.
