CALORIE CONTENT OF POPULAR PET FOODS
Below are some links to information from the Association for Prevention of Pet Obesity (APOP) with listing of calorie content of popular pet foods. But use caution, this information is very difficult to keep up to date and we recommend verifying the current calorie content of foods directly from the manufacturer.
For dry foods, the calorie content will be in calories per 8 oz standard kitchen measuring cup so be sure to accurately measure! Canned foods will be measured in portions of a can. When giving your pet's diet history to your veterinarian be sure to tell them what size can you are using (i.e. 3.5 oz, 5.5 oz, 12.5 oz, etc.)
