Use this chart as a guide.
To calculate the quantity of meat to feed your puppy or dog you work it out on a percentage of the current body weight.
If your dog is overweight you should base the percentage on the ideal weight. You can always reduce an adult dog’s percentage of food down to 1.5% of the ideal weight. You may want to feed your dog little and often so they feel less hungry.
If your dog is underweight feed the higher end of the percentage within the age range.
We have included a calculator below for you to easily work out how much food your dog will need each day
The daily percentage amount to feed your dog is listed below:
7-10 weeks 8 – 10% of bodyweight
10-16 weeks 7.5 – 8.5% of bodyweight
16-20 weeks 6.5 – 7.5% of bodyweight
20-24 weeks 5.5 – 6.5% of bodyweight
24-36 weeks 4.5 – 5.5% of bodyweight
36-56 weeks 3.5 – 4.5% of bodyweight
56-68 weeks 3.5% of bodyweight
68 weeks plus is adult maintenance at 2-3%
Senior dogs who are less active can be fed 1.5% of their ideal bodyweight.
Raw feeding is easy when you know how and is a very natural way to feed your dog.
I have produced a simple guide to raw feeding.
The food you feed should be produced from a DEFRA approved raw dog food suppler.
The suppliers that we use have all been approved by DEFRA and produce quality affordable dog food.
We will be adding new suppliers over the coming months.
