RAW DOG FOOD CALCULATOR
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.
