Feeding Guidelines: Dogs

When introducing a new food, it is best to begin by matching the number of calories consumed per day - the number of calories per weight is typically listed near the ingredients as kCal/kg or kCal/oz.

Feel free to us the charts below as a good starting point if the number of calories per weight is not available.

Suggested Servings: 2 times/day — e.g. for a 10 lb. 'adult active' dog on our Raw Chicken Dinner diet, feed 5.5 oz. twice daily (11 oz. total).

Pregnant/Lactating: Nutrition requirements for pregnant or lactating dogs can be 2-5 times larger than adult maintenance. Feeding amount may vary based on the number of puppies and lactating stage.
