How much Raw 4 Paws ® should I feed my dog every day?
A healthy adult dog needs to be fed about 2%-3% of their current body weight per day or if overweight then 2% of their desired bodyweight per day (feed 5% of current bodyweight per day for puppies under 4 months or 2-3% of the breed’s average adult bodyweight if over 4 months)
- Smaller breed dogs generally burn more calories for their weight than larger breeds and have a faster metabolism so they will usually start at 3% of bodyweight per day. If you have a sedentary old dog 2% will be a good starting point
- Monitor your dog’s weight and adjust up or down accordingly to maintain a constant healthy body weight Some adult dogs thrive one meal per day and others do better on two meals per day.
- Puppies up until 6 months need 3 meals per day. Puppies 6-12 months require 2 meals per day. It is important for their bone growth and development especially while they are cutting teeth to make sure puppies are never underweight.

Raw4 Paws Ingredients Guide
– Leaner cuts of Australian human grade meat is used. Free range meats are selected where possible. Each recipe only contains meat, bone and organs from the one protein source. All meat is sourced fresh only from Australian human consumption facilities. Turkey and chicken recipes contain ground bone but lamb beef and roo do not contain ground bone as these bones are too hard so calcium is added instead to balance these recipes. We do not use bone meal or bone powder in our recipes as these powders contain bones from mixed species but predominantly beef and as we are strict about single protein for allergy dogs we avoid any other bones
