Please keep in mind that our feeding guidelines should be used as a starting point.  Some large breeds have lower food requirements than average, and some active breeds need more food than their weight would imply. You know your pet better than we do, and you can adjust from this model as you feel best.

There are a few factors that will affect the recommended amount to feed your pet, such as age, activity level, and weight goals. We use the body weight percentage rule, which estimates feeding amounts based on the weight of your pet.

For example, if you have a 50-pound adult Australian Shepherd, then you would want to feed them 2.5% of their body weight, which is 1.25 lb (daily).
50lbs x 2.5% = 1.25 lbs

Body Weight Percentage Recommendation:  We suggest that you feed your pet the following percentages based on their activity and weight goals.

Safe Handling
Please keep in mind that you are dealing with raw, unprocessed meat. As you would when preparing raw meat for your human family, take the precautions of washing your hands after touching, cleaning surfaces thoroughly, and any other steps you would normally take. While animals have the digestive tracts to deal with contaminants such as salmonella and e-coli (which we test regularly for and keep our foods free from regardless) it is the risk for human contact that leads to FDA recalls of raw pet food in our industry. So remember to treat your dog and cat food as you would any other raw meat. Recalls are actually more likely from kibble, so if you are mixing take the same precautions with both types of food.
