How Much To Feed

An average dog should be eating 2.5% – 4% of their body weight, whereas active dogs can eat between 4% – 6% of their body weight. Puppies can eat up to 10% of their body weight, depending on breed.

For Example:

LARGE DOGS: An 8 year old, 80lb German Shepherd with lower energy can be fed up to 1 ½lbs of a food split into two meals per day. This includes meaty necks, bones, treats and his food.
COST: For a “ruff” look at 7 days you would be feeding about 10.5 lbs of food which would average out to $43.89/week depending on the blends you choose to feed.

MEDIUM DOGS: A 50lb, 2 year old Boxer with high energy can be fed up to 1lb of food split into two meals per day. You may also feed meaty necks/bones as a snack throughout the day on top of his regular meal to suffice for his high metabolism
COST: For a “ruff” look at 7 days you would be feeding about 7lbs of food which would average out to about $29.26/week depending on the blends you choose to feed.

SMALL DOGS: A 10Lb, 12 year old Chihuahua  who only goes on a 15min walk per day would eat about ¼ of a pound split into 2 meals per day.
COST: For a “ruff” look at 7 days you would be feeding about 1.75 lbs of food which would average to about $7.32/week depending on the blends you choose to feed.

  • INCREASE for active and growing dogs.
  • DECREASE for non active and senior dogs.
  • USE your judgment, YOU know YOUR dog best!
  • Puppies, Lactating Mothers, and Dietary needs require special diet, PLEASE ADVISE.
  • 1lb = 2cups; 1/2lb = 1 cup; 1/4lb = 4oz

How Much Should You Feed Your Cat?

An average cat should be eating 2% – 3% of their body weight, whereas active cats can eat between 4% – 6% of their body weight. Kittens can eat up to 8% of their body weight, depending on breed. Unlike dogs, cats are self-regulating. Your cat will know when it is full! Give your cat its food, allow 15minutes to eat, and then refrigerate the rest until the next feeding. Adult cats can be fed twice a day and kittens may be fed 2 – 3 times a day (depending on the kitten.)

FOR EXAMPLE:

A 1 – 5 lbs. cat can be fed UP TO 1.6 oz. of raw food a day (1 tbsp. which is a little less than HALF of our quarter cuts.).

A 6 – 10 lbs. cat can be fed UP TO 3.2 oz. of raw food a day (2 tbsp. which is a little less than ONE of our quarter cuts.).

A 11 – 16 lbs. cat can be fed up to 4.8 oz. of raw food a day (3.5 tbsp. which is just over ONE of our quarter cuts.).

*ONE of our quarter cuts = 4oz. (approx.) You can buy our cat food in individual 4oz. packaging or in a 5lb bag of “quarter pound cuts”.
