How much should i feed?
A typical adult dog should consume 2-3% of their body weight per day. This percentage should be calculated using your dog’s size, activity level and overall health.
The recommended amount for raw feeding a healthy, adult dog is 2-3% of their body weight per day.
It is generally recommended to feed adult dogs a smaller meal twice per day, rather than one large feeding. As with humans, it is commonly thought that this supports better functioning of the dog’s metabolism and digestive system.
Puppies have increased nutritional needs to meet the demands of their growing bodies. Puppies under 12 months of age should be fed approximately 5% of their body weight per day.
Divide the total daily allowance of our raw dog food into 3 meals for puppies under 6 months of age; and into 2 meals for puppies aged from 6 months onwards.
How to calculate
To work out your dog’s daily feeding requirement, multiply their weight by 2-3%, or 5% for puppies. For example, to work out what to feed my 5.6kg Cavalier, if working on a ratio of 3% of her body weight:
5.6kg x 0.03 (3%) = 0.168
This means I would feed her 168 grams per day, divided into 2 meals of 84 grams each.
