Energy Requirements for Dogs and Cats.

- This table is a quick guideline for determining energy requirements for dogs and cats.

- Resting energy requirement (RER) is the estimated daily energy requirement (or caloric needs) needed to maintain the essential bodily functions of a particular patient at rest in a thermoneutral environment.

- Maintenance energy requirement (MER) is the estimated daily energy requirement (or caloric needs) needed to maintain the essential bodily functions of a particular patient, taking into account the patient's life stage, activity level and body condition score.

- Remember that the calculations for RER and MER are only estimations, and some patients may require a little more or a little less than calculated. Also, the calculated amount can be adjusted slightly as needed to make feeding guidelines more practical.

- Remember to account for any additional kilocaries that a patient may consume throughput the day such as treats or dental chews.

- Remember to take into account a patient's individual circumstances and don't rely on the numbers alone.
