Use this chart to determine the amount of food you’ll need daily for your pet. We highly recommend splitting this into 2 meals per day minimum as raw food digests at a faster rate than kibble.

Switching from Kibble

If your dog has a sensitive stomach, you are best to start slowly adding raw into the dog’s kibble. (Don’t forget to adjust the amounts!) Ideally you’ll want to switch over 1-2 weeks time by slowing increasing the raw and decreasing the kibble. If your dog shows signs of digestive upset, canned plain pumpkin can be added to the meal at 1 tsp increments. 

If your dog is a hearty eater with little digestive issue, many times we switch dogs cold turkey. Feed their last meal of kibble tonight and start with their raw portion tomorrow morning. 

It’s important to remember that raw digests faster than kibble and your dog will need to be fed twice per day.

How Much Food Do I Need?

Every dog is different! You’ll want to use the chart provided to determine your range of daily intake you’ll start with. Some dogs may need more than others so if you have a harder keeper, be sure to start with the “High” activity level category and you can always adjust down. Take your daily intake from the chart (it is shown in ounces) and multiply it by the number of days you will purchase at one time. That will give you the total ounces needed. Be sure to convert to lbs before ordering! (16 ounces/lb)

How Do I Know If I’m Feeding Enough?

Easy! Look at your dog’s physical condition. Just like in people, dogs will get bigger or smaller in size dependent on how much they eat. Ideally, you will be able to see your dog’s waist line. If you notice your dog is adding or dropping weight and it is not desired, start by increasing 1/2-1 oz per meal depending on the size of dog. You should be able to tell within a few days if you are feeding the appropriate amount. Remember, dogs need different amounts of food depending on their activity level so the amount you feed may change during the time of year.
