Puppy Raw Feeding Guide

Read through our main Raw Feeding Starter Guide to gain an idea of how to start, but when feeding puppies you need to change the amount you feed as they will be growing! 

 

This handy chart will give you an idea of how much to feed. This is just a guide so its important to regularly weigh your puppy and keep a record of their weight - keep an eye on their condition and increase/decrease their food as needed.

 

                                                   7 - 10 Weeks  = 8 - 10% of their bodyweight

                                                    10 - 16 Weeks   =     7.5 - 8.5% of bodyweight

16-20 weeks   =   6.5% - 7.5% of bodyweight

20-24 weeks   =   5.5% - 6.5% of bodyweight

24 - 36 weeks   =  4.5% - 5.5% of bodyweight

36 -56 weeks   =   3.5% - 4.5% of bodyweight

56 - 68 weeks   =   3.5% of bodyweight

68 weeks + = now its time to change to"maintaining the weight" at 2-3%

 

Try and resist the urge to over feed to get weight on them quickly - it can cause problems with their growth plates & joints, affecting them in later life (especially large & giant breed puppies) Each puppy is an individual and will grow at their own pace, and don't forget they will bulk out later as they get older.
