I'm trying to Calculate the Ideal Caloric Intake of a diet for my Puppy. In order to do that i need the Ideal weight of a 7 week male Basenji puppy. Getting a few different numbers will be good for comparison since no 2 poppies are the same and I can create an average. If an average exists then much simpler.
Thank you in advance.
The reason I don't want to provide food ad libitum is that Basenji's have a tendency to develop hip dysplasia (not surprisingly high but a tendency non the less) and excess in feed at a young age increases the growth rate and also the tendency of hip dysplasia (may also be congenital)
- I'd like to be cautious.
Once I calculate it I'll post the formula, conversion Factors and result for any person interested.
