It’s important that you feed your Cavoodle a balanced, age-appropriate diet that meets all of their nutritional requirements. Many recommended brands of Small Breed Adult Dog Food have smaller kibble to fit small and toy breeds.


They also provide a healthy mix of protein, fat, and carbohydrate, as well as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. There is also puppy food made especially for small breeds.

Feeding Your new Cavoodle Puppy

The majority of Cavoodles are not picky eaters by nature, but some are pickier than others.


Sticking to your dog’s previous diet ( Whether you you got him from a Breeder or a previous owner)is not only vital for avoiding gastric upsets, which can be serious in young puppies, but it will also be what a fussy pup is used to eating.


Since Cavoodles are a small dog breed, they are usually inexpensive to feed. If you want to feed dry food, stick with a quality dry food since Cavoodles consume small quantities at a time and need this small amount to have all of the nutrition they require.

Feed your New Cavoodle puppy the same food the breeder fed them.

This is particularly important for rising puppies, because for a few dollars more per week, you can provide your Cavoodle with a full diet that includes quality dry food rather than lower grade dry food. Often ask the Cavoodle breeder or previous owner what they’ve been feeding the puppy and how many meals a day they’ve been giving them so you can feed your new dog the same thing. 


If your veterinarian recommends a new type of food or a completely different diet, gradually Introducing the new food is preferable rather than  a drastic change.

Cavoodle puppies eat more protein than older Cavoodles

Even after your Cavoodle puppy has weaned themselves from their mother’s milk, they need more protein and fat than an adult dog. This is due to the fact that puppies (especially Cavoodle puppies) have more energy than adults.


They use the energy to not only run , Jump , and play, but also to mature into young, healthy adults.

You must feed Cavoodle puppy more often than adult Cavoodles...

Cavoodle puppies should eat 3 – 4 times per day, and sometimes up to 5 times per day. This is largely due to their smaller stomachs.


They do not, however, eat as much per meal; smaller portions insure that the puppies do not eat too much too quickly and become ill.

Care for your Cavoodle dog at every stage of life

The Diet requirements of your Cavoodle will differ from one dog to the next. They may require more of one food than another at times.


You can determine the best food for your Cavoodle at each stage of their life, from birth to old age, by staying in touch with your veterinarian.

It is critical to keep track of what your Cavoodle puppies eat in order to keep them happy and healthy.
