As a highly active dog breed, a sprollie’s diet requires premium-quality proteins to meet his nutritional needs. These include chicken, lamb, fish, poultry, and eggs. Also include cereals and grains, carbohydrates, and vegetables, like brown rice, corn, wheat, and potatoes.
Provide your energetic sprollie with excellent-quality dog food. It should have a sufficient amount of nutritional value that caters to his activity levels, age, breed, and size. To narrow down the list of suitable high-quality dog food for your sprollie, check with the vet.
Do not opt for commercial dog food as it is often insufficient in calories and nutritional content. Others also include dangerous ingredients such as preservatives, which can negatively affect your sprollie’s health. Be sure to give him fresh water every day to keep him well-hydrated and avoid heatstroke.
Follow a set feeding schedule consistently, and provide the same food that your sprollie is used to in order to avoid gastric upset. However, if you need to shift to another type of high-quality food, do so gradually. This helps your pet adjust accordingly without complications. A sprollie puppy must be fed three to four times a day, whilst an adult sprollie can be fed twice a day.
For a sprollie puppy that is two to six months old, feed him 150–270 g of food daily, depending also on his size and activity level. For one that is seven to eight months old, feed him 150–250 g of food daily. On his tenth to eleventh month, feed him 135-195 g of food. When he turns twelve months and beyond, you can feed him adult food.
The adult sprollie weighing 18 kg should be fed about 215–280 g of food daily, also taking into consideration his activity level. For those 20 kg and above, the daily recommended portion ranges from 250 to 335 g.
