Feeding Instructions

Feeding Directions


Feeding Adult Dogs
Recommended feeding for an adult dog should be 2-3% of their body weight. For example, if your dog is a healthy 80 pounds and is moderately active, he or she will need to eat about 2.5% in dog food (2 pounds of food) per day. Raw Health Canine Food recommends splitting up the 2 pounds and feeding one pound in the morning and one pound at night. If your dog is highly active you will need to increase the food percentage and if your dog is not active or is a senior dog you should keep the dog at 2-2.5% of their body weight daily. Always remember that this is a guide that we recommend and go by. If you feel you need to feed your dog more food, feel free to do so.

If your dog needs to gain weight or is extremely active, feed more by increasing it to 3-4% of your dogs body weight. If your dog is overweight, older, or less active, feed 2-2.5%.

Feeding Puppies
For a proper feeding guide on how to feed your puppy, please email us directly and we will assist you if this below chart does not help you. Puppies percentage of their daily food intake is always changing due to their age and weight calculation. Puppies will start off eating at 8 weeks old at 10% of their body weight. This percentage will slowly decrease until your puppy turns one year old.

2-3 month old puppy will eat 10-9.5% of its body weight daily.
3-4 month puppy will eat 9-8.5% of its body weight daily.
4-5 month puppy will eat 8-7.5% of its body weight daily.
5-6 month puppy will eat 7-6.5% of its body weight daily.
6-7 month puppy will eat 6-5.5% of its body weight daily.
7-8 month puppy will eat 5-4.5% of its body weight daily.
8-9 Month puppy will eat 4-3.5% of its body weight daily.
9-10 month old puppy will eat 3.5-3% of its body weight daily.
10-12 month old puppy will eat 3-2.5% of its body weight daily.
At this point your puppy, will eat at the adult dog bodyweight percentage of 2.5-3% range depending on activity level. Any questions please contact us at the email below.

Transitioning from "old food" to our Raw Health Canine food

When transitioning to our Raw Health Canine Food from your dogs "old food" we recommend a slow introduction, unless the dog has been on Raw food before starting our food. For example, on day 1 of the transition we recommend 15% Raw Health Canine Food and 85% "old food" for the dogs meals that day. On day 2 we recommend 25% Raw Health Canine Food and 75% "old food." On day 3 we recommend 35% Raw Health Canine Food and 65% "old food." On day 4 we recommend 50% Raw Health Canine Food and 50 % "old food." At this point you will begin serving more Raw Health Canine Food than the "old food." On day 5 we recommend 75% Raw Health Canine Food and 25% "old food." On day 6 we recommend 85% Raw Health Canine Food and 15% "old food." On day 7 you should be fully Raw, concluding the transitioning period.
