Ensuring that your Cockapoo gets the right nourishment goes a long way towards keeping them happy and healthy, which is why it's important to choose the best food for them.
As a delightful crossbreed between Cocker Spaniels and Poodles, Cockapoos boast a unique blend of traits that necessitate a thoughtful approach to their dietary needs. In this exploration of the best dog food for Cockapoos, we delve into the essential considerations for selecting the right nourishment that caters to their size, energy levels, and potential health sensitivities.
Based on our current customers, we estimate that adult Cockapoos need around 450 calories per day. This can vary based on your pooch’s age, weight and activity level.
The feeding frequency for a Cockapoo can depend on factors such as age, size, and individual needs. Here are general guidelines for feeding a Cockapoo:
Puppies generally need to eat more frequently than adult dogs. Provide three to four meals a day to accommodate their growing bodies and higher energy requirements.
Adult Cockapoos can be fed two to three meals per day. Dividing their daily portion into multiple meals helps maintain stable energy levels and prevents overeating.
As dogs age, their metabolism may slow down, and their activity levels may decrease. Adjust feeding frequency and portion sizes based on individual needs.
Cockapoos often suffer from food allergies and while it might sound easy to avoid common triggers, they're actually used in a lot of dry and canned dog foods. If your dog is allergic to the food they eat, they'll make it known by vigorously itching their painful itchy skin and perfuming the house with unfortunate gas. Neither of you will enjoy that.
At Butternut Box, when we make our perfectly portioned meals, we cut out all of the main culprits that can cause allergic reactions. We know from experience what food intolerances can do to your pooch.
All Butternut Box pouches contain freshly prepped ingredients that you could easily pick up in a health food shop or supermarket. No hidden nasties + drool-worthy meat = irresistible tastiness. We know from talking to Cockapoo parents that they can be very fussy eaters (the Cockapoos, not the parents) so finding tempting meals they'll eagerly tuck into can be tricky. The feedback on Butternut Box recipes? Drooling mouths and polished bowls.
We estimate that it will cost around £66 each month to feed your Cockapoo a diet of Butternut Box food. This is based on data from our current customers and can vary depending on things like age, weight and activity level.
We generally recommend dividing this into two meals per day, morning and evening, to help sustain your pooch throughout the day.
