CRONEY RESEARCH GROUP
Maintaining an optimal body condition and weight while providing adequate energy should be the primary goal of any nutritional program. A body condition score chart is a helpful tool to determine a dog’s body condition and consulting one can help guide owners towards a different strategy such as increased exercise or a change in food intake that improves body condition. The goal of feeding programs for adult dogs at maintenance should be to maintain optimal body weight.
