Feeding Information

A dog’s feed portion depends on their weight, metabolism and activity level. If your dog has any special dietary needs or medical requirements, it is highly recommended that you talk to your vet and discuss a raw feeding plan. Here are some general guidelines for feeding your dog a raw food diet:

Active or underweight adult dogs should eat 3-4% of their current weight in pounds per day.
Senior, less active or overweight adult dogs should eat 1.5-2% of their current weight in pounds per day.
Adult dogs at an ideal weight should eat 2-3% of their current weight in pounds per day.
If you are wondering how often you should be feeding, we recommend 2-4 times per day for puppies and 1-2 times per day for adult dogs. Again this will depend on if your dog has any specific requirements set out by your vet.
Just getting started on your raw journey? No problem! Transitioning can be quick and painless for both you and your four-legged friend. We recommend a gradual transition, especially if you're coming off of dry kibble. Adjustments of the guidelines above should be made as necessary, with transition times varying for individual dogs.
