HELPFUL HINTS FOR FEEDING PRODOG RAW
To defrost Prodog Raw easily leave it in a cool place overnight. Should you forget to take the product out in advance you can defrost in the microwave instead. It is important that you don’t allow the product to cook! If, at feeding time, the dog’s meal is still partially frozen, simply add some warm water and allow it to sit for 5 minutes.
We recommend that you feed 2-3% of the dog’s ideal body weight, spread over two meals a day. You can easily calculate 2% by taking the dog’s ideal body weight (eg: 20kg), add a zero to this number (200) and feed this amount in grams per meal if feeding twice a day.
Usually, puppies should be fed to appetite from 4-6 weeks. From 7 weeks old please refer to the feeding guide below.
Remember this is a guide and a common-sense approach is needed. Puppies should be lean and not over weight to protect their joints. Please use careful observation as your pup develops and call us for advice if necessary.
As your dog matures, begin reducing the total daily amount to 2-3% in line with the feeding guide, monitoring their weight carefully, so that you can adjust portions as necessary. Remember, every dog has a different metabolism and nutritional requirements, so feeding should be matched to his individual needs.
Until your puppy is 16 weeks old we recommend spreading your dog’s daily food allowance over four meals per day. From 17 to 24 weeks of age reduce this to 3 meals a day. After this, 2 meals a day is preferable.
