Before starting your adult dog on a raw diet, you must determine how much food your dog will need. This is simple to figure out. All you need to know is your dog’s current weight, and activity level.
*you can visit your pet’s vet clinic to get an accurate weight. Do not guesstimate, as this is an important step.
If your pet is at an ideal weight, you will start by feeding 2% of his or her body weight in food. This is just a starting point. A very active dog can require 3% or more to meet his energy requirements and maintains a healthy weight. If your pet could lose a few pounds, it is recommended to start at 1.5% of his body weight and adjust accordingly with his physical activity and pounds lost. It is always best to carefully monitor your pet’s physical condition by checking and weighing them every couple of months.
