Raw Dog Food Guidelines
How Much Do I need to Feed a Puppy?
Experts recommend around 5% of a puppy’s body weight daily, but as a puppy grows that can change quickly and since all puppies will have individual needs based on their level of activity this is just a guideline.
We suggest each week you weigh your puppy- for example, if your puppy weighs 3Kgs, then we would suggest 150grams per day (3kgs x 5%).
If you have any concerns or questions please do contact us on Live Chat, and our family Dog Whisperer; a dog breeder and raw pet food feeder can give advise.
Raw Feeding Adult Dogs
For a healthy adult dog, We recommend feeding approximately 2.5% of the dog's ideal body weight daily but every dog is an individual and has a different level of activity and may need to eat more or less depending on its body condition.
In Winter or after a lot of exercise (including farm dogs) you may need to feed slightly more, if a dog is overweight and or in Summer you may need to feed their raw diet less.
We advise feeding twice a day, so divide the recommended daily raw foods portion in two and throw away anything left in the bowl.
Unlike processed dry dog food, your Rawgeous Pet Food will be delivered to your door frozen. Please ensure you put your boxes straight into your so that they stay frozen for optimum product quality and food safety.
Before you feed, you’ll need to allow your Rawgeous food to thaw in the fridge, (each box is self contained so is perfectly safe in a normal fridge). If you keep the boxes in the fridge, your food can be stored for 4 days, so you can thaw the next day’s food overnight.
Preparation and Hygiene
Our Rawgeous Pet Food is triple tested to ensure it is free of bacteria and nasties, but as with any raw meat product there are hygiene measures required once you have removed it from the fridge as it will quickly reach room temperature. Wash your hands before and after (we’ve all got used to this lately), and clean all surfaces used to prepare the raw pet food. Wash your pet’s food bowl after they have finished their meal (even if they’ve licked the bowl clean) with hot soapy water and rinse with water at the end to remove any traces of soap.
