  • How much should I feed my pet?

    VETERINARY HPM® is very palatable, but we do advise that you respect the daily rations recommended by your vet or vet nurse. Our general feeding guidelines can be found on every bag, but your vet or vet nurse can provide you with a recommendation tailored specifically to your pet. 

  • My pet is drinking more. Is this normal?

    A dog should drink 50-70ml/kg of their bodyweight each day, whilst cats should consume 60ml/kg.

    With VETERINARY HPM®, thanks to its higher amount of protein compared to other dry foods, your pet will naturally consume more water. So don't be surprised if they start drinking more water than usual - that's a good thing!
