How Much Do I Feed?

to calculate how many pounds to feed per day...

Current Weight (lbs.) x 0.02

PUPPIES 8-12 months

Current Weight (lbs.) x 0.04

Current Weight (lbs.) x 0.06

Current Weight (lbs.) x 0.08

PUPPIES 4-6 months


PUPPIES 6-8 months


For weight loss and/or inactive dogs, feed less.

For weight gain and/or active dogs, feed more.

If your dog eats 1.5 lbs, it is easiest to feed 1lb one day, then 2 lbs the next day, rather than splitting a pack. (Similarly, if they eat 2.5 lbs per day, feed 2lbs one day then 3 lbs the next.) This is okay since their diet will be balanced over time.

Rachel’s Raw Fed Dogs is a meal planning and advice service based on the Prey Model Raw diet for dogs. Rachel’s Raw Fed Dogs does not assume any liability for the results of implementing a raw diet. Implement meal plans at your own discretion and please use your best judgement when monitoring your dog’s transition to raw. I am not a vet and cannot offer medical advice; please stop raw and see your vet if diarrhea lasts longer than 48 hours or if stool contains blood (bright red) or is black and tarry, or if your dog is showing lethargy or signs of abdominal pain (bloating, groaning, or panting rapidly or avoidance response when belly is touched). Raw has amazing health benefits but safety first!
