How Much to Feed


Unsure of how much you should be feeding your dog or cat on a raw diet? We're here to help!

Feeding a raw diet is all about giving your pet the very best chance of a healthy life, offering the nutrients they need in the form of delicious, raw, natural meals. We're here to help pets and their people get the very best out of our raw diet, offering guidance along the way.

Tailoring the raw diet to your pet

Ensuring your dog or cat is being fed the correct amounts and a healthy, varied diet is what matters most. We start by gathering a few basic pieces of information:

- Breed, age & current weight
- Are they neutered?
- Are you happy with their weight? (If you visit us instore we will weigh your pet for you and give you our feedback on how much they should weigh and how much to feed)

Age is important as there are a few life stages the you feed differently for - mainly young dogs puppies & kittens will eat and need so much more than an adult of the same breed.

Puppies & kittens

Puppies & kittens can have up to 10% of their bodyweight in meat per day. As the animal gets older they need less so a 6 month old pet will need more like 5-7% of their bodyweight in meat per day. Adults need 2-3% of their bodyweight in meat per day and large breeds and some older pets may only need as little as 1% of their bodyweight in meat per day. We would also increase the amount of meat if you have a dog that is working or is highly active.

Working out the percentage is simple - here is an example:

  • 12kg 6 month old dog - suggested feeding raw of 5-7% in bodyweight in meat per day.
  • 12 x 5 = 60 add 0 = 5% = 600g
  • 12 x 7 = 84 add 0 = 7% = 840g

So, for a 12kg, 6 month old dog we would recommend you feed 600 to 840 grams of meat per day.
