Raw Food can Benefit your Dog
Dogs are meant to eat raw food, therefore, feeding them processed food such as kibble can lead to health problems in the future. However, if you switch your dog’s diet to raw food, you can easily notice positive changes in their health and behavior like:
- Increased energy levels
- Gaining sufficient nutrients and enzymes
- Healthier brain function
- Shinier fur
- Healthy skin
- Improved dental health
These benefits are common for all dogs, however, not every breed, size, and age of dog needs an equal amount of raw food. Here’s a guide to accurately feeding raw food to your dog.
1. Small breed dogs:
- 8 ounces of raw food a day
- Meals split between 3 to 6 times a day
- 4 meals split into 2 ounces in each serving
- 2% to 5% of their body weight of raw food
- 3 to 4 meals a day
- 50% to 60% of body weight of raw food in ounces split into 3 to 4 meals in case of puppies
- 2% to 3% of their weight of raw food split into 2 meals a day in case of adults
If your dog seems underweight, you can increase their diest by 40% with extra fat and protein in their raw food. However, if they appear obese, consider reducing their daily meal amount by 40%, followed up by regular exercise.
