Guidelines for Feeding Raw Dog Food
These feeding guidelines are approximate. Please refer to our raw dog food calculator to get further daily/monthly feeding information for your dog. Remember, no two dogs are identical in activity level or metabolic rate. Therefore, it is imperative to weigh your dog to suit their ideal intake regularly. These are general guidelines to get you started. Also, I see raw diet feeding adjustments in the summer when days are long and in the winter as their activity levels drop. Also, dogs with higher/lower activity levels may need a larger/smaller amount of raw dog food per serving.
Puppies (Less than one year of age)
Up to 10% of their body weight evenly divided between 3 – 4 feedings per day.
Low to Normal Activity, Pet Dogs (1 year of age and older)
2-3% of their body weight, evenly divided between 2 meals per day.
Endurance, High Activity, Performance, Sport and Working Dogs
6-10% of their body weight, evenly divided between 2 meals per day.
