Calories per Cup of Popular Foods

Removed link as it was outdated and not maintained. So to avoid unnecessary confusion
this is a fairly accurate compilation of some of the more common dry dog foods on the market along with their calories per cup.

EDIT to add : This is not a "Food Recommendation Post", it's simply a quick referrence list of Calorie Content in various brands.

IF you see a discrepancy, please let me know and I will adjust it accordingly

The list itself is not completely up to date but it does give you a pretty good idea of the calories per cup of just about any brand/forumla on the market.

I went through and picked some that I thought were more common types
-- keep in mind, not all are verified yet --- Formula changes do take place
Please feel free to point out any mistakes and I will correct them as I go along

lmao! omg, i'm dumb i was looking for the formula/recipe/ingredients for each brand and could only find the list of the different types of food *facepalm*

i get it now that you listed everything... the formula is the different type of food that each brand offers... gosh... now that i've figured that out with my brilliance, i'd like to say, that is a very interesting site, thank you for sharing...

Thanks! This was quite interesting.

Now if we only knew the optimum calories for each dog per day. *Sigh* never ending search for the exact "right" thing to do for them.

These will provide some rough guidelines of how much food to feed at various stages in life.

Once you have the total daily recommended calories figured out, subtract out the calories given in treats and add-ins to the food. Then divide the total calories left by the calories per cup of the food. That's your daily total of cups. Then just divide that by the number of meals you feed.

Don't forget to factor in where your dog is in terms of life stage. Typically, a pup less than 50% of final anticipated weight will need more calories than one over 50% grown. A senior generally needs fewer calories than a younger adult. A highly active dog will need more than a couch potato.

I do it by trial and error. If I'm feeding to much, they'll gain. To little, they loose. I don't know about officially though!
