How Much to Feed...
In general, when feeding a raw diet you want to feed your pet an amount of food equal to between 1 and 3 percent of her body weight on a daily basis. So a 50 pound dog would be fed between ½ pound and 1 ½ pounds of raw food per day. If your dog is a larger breed and/or overweight and/or less active, you would feed an amount at the lower end of the range. Conversely, if your pet is underweight and/or a small breed and or very active, you would feed an amount at the upper end of the range.
All feeding guides are approximations. It is essential that you weigh your pet weekly or monthly when starting a new pet food to monitor her weight and adjust the diet accordingly. Most veterinarians are happy to have their patients visit for a weight check at no charge during slow hours.
