Calculating Required Calories for Pets, Based on Science by OSU

Over 18,500 pets receive health and medical care each year at The Ohio State University. This experience has led researchers to develop lots of nutritional information and guidance for pet owners.

Based on research by the OSU vet center, a dog food calculator developed by Hachi was created to help dog owners learn how much dry dog food to feed their dog. Pet owners input the age, activity level, and body condition of the pet which is then analyzed against a diverse range of dog food brands.

Using the dog food calculator, pet owners are shown the resting energy requirements of their pets. The amount of recommended cups per day is 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 costs of food.
