How much should a Jack Russell Terrier eat?


Answer by  aarmitage (53)

About 1/2 a cup of small dog food a day when he is a pup then at about a year you want to feed him a full cup of dog food. It is good to regularly, place your two hands on his ribcage gently to feel his ribs.The ribs shouldn't poke out,and should palpate.

Somewhere between 1 cup and 2 cups daily. This can be broken into 2 meals (each a little less than a cup), one for the morning, and one in the evening.

Although Jack Russells are an active breed, you should resist the urge to over feed them. The amount you feed them depends on the type of food you are feeding them. Check the feeding guidelines on the package for proper proportions.

Judge the quantity of your Jack Russell's food over a few weeks. My Jack Russell eats 1/2 cup of food twice each day and maintains a weight of 22 pounds. He is an active dog, though. A less active JR should eat less to avoid becoming overweight.

Generally speaking, a small terrier should get about 3/4 to a cup of dog food per day. You should add a snack or two but feeding too much will result in an overweight dog. Your vet may suggest more or less depending on your dogs actual size.

I would recommend a total 300 grms/day of raw meat or raw chicken wings plus a good quality kibble to add fibre. Vary the diet every second day, I also give my dogs the BARF diet.( Goolgle it!). Have 7 Jack Russells and all are in excellent heath and condition.  add a comment

also raw beef bones and offal. These are what dogs would eat in the wild. In the wild when the dogs have a kill they gorge themselves on food and not eat for several days. I sometimes give my dogs a lay day without a meal.  add a comment

It all depends on the jack russell and how you feed it some eat three times a day and they eat more each time so they arent hungry before time to eat again if they eat free choice they only eat a little each time but many times.

Jessy eats a hand full once a day, and 1 or 2 snacks. I don't give her to much because she's a small dog and gets easily over weighted.
