Pet Food


The Veterinary Medical Center at The Ohio State University provides more than 18,500 pets with health and medical care each year. Research and hands-on experience have led the center to develop nutritional information and guidance for pet owners.

Based on the OSU vet center’s research, OSU Vet Center created a calculator to help dog owners learn how much dry dog food to feed their dogs. The pet’s age, activity level, and body condition are input and analyzed against a wide range of dog food brands.

Using the tool, pet owners are shown the resting energy requirements of their pets. The amount of recommended cups per day are revealed depending on brand and other factors. The database contains detailed information on 1,000+ common dog food products, so it’s easy to find a particular brand.

Live pricing for each brand is analyzed across the web, showing daily, monthly, and yearly food costs.

FOODS & HOW SAFE THEY ARE FOR A DOG  MyPetChild.com has prepared a tool that helps dog owners quickly understand how safe it is for dogs to consume specific human foods. https://www.mypetchild.com/tool/dog-food-database/
