Raw Primal Diet Feeding Guide

Picture of a VizslaAs a general rule, when feeding a raw primal diet, a typical adult dog should consume about 2-4% of their ideal body weight per day. Typically, smaller dogs should eat a higher percentage of their body weight, while bigger dogs should eat a lower percentage. Puppies are fed based on their ideal weight as an adult. Senior dogs are feed on the lower end of the spectrum since they are generally less active and require less food to maintain a healthy weight.

In weekly and monthly terms a raw primal diet would look like this:

  • a 10 lb dog will eat about 2- 2 1/2 lbs per week or about 10 lbs per month
  • a 25 lb dog will eat about 5 lbs per week or about 20 lbs per month
  • a 50 lb dog will eat about 8 lbs per week or about 32 lbs per month
  • a 75 lb dog will eat about 10- 10 1/2 lbs per week or about 42 lbs per month
  • a 100 lb dog will eat about 14 lbs per week or about 56 lbs per month

The cost for pre-measured dog food is $3.50 per pound. Raw meaty bones, which are fed on the side, and not ground-in are also available.
