Feed them right!
If you’re reading this, it could be because you’re making the move to raw feeding.
Whilst it might seem a daunting task to begin with, the general premise is quite simple: feeding a balance of meat & meaty bones (minimum 80%) alongside offal, fruit, herbs and vegetables.
We provide a range of meals to suit different budgets and nutritional preferences and recommend that once you and your dog are settled on your meat of choice, you gradually introduce other meats from our range to promote much needed variety in their diet.
Let's get started by entering your dog's information:

What other factors should influence how much I feed my dog?
How much raw dog food or raw puppy food you feed your dog will depend on several factors, including:
- Your dog's metabolism
- The quality of food you are feeding them
- How much exercise your dog gets
- How much your dog weighs
- The age and breed of your dog
- Whether your dog is castrated or spayed
- If you want your dog to gain, maintain or lose weight.
How much raw food should I feed my puppy?
Feeding raw food to growing puppies requires a different set of guidelines than those for adult dogs. See our guidelines below.
Puppies aged 0-3 weeks: They should be drinking their mother’s milk to obtain essential nutrients, enzymes, microbiome and essential fatty acids.
Puppies aged 3-4 weeks: These pups need 3 meals a day. Feed around 8% of the puppy’s body weight per day.
Puppies aged 6-12 weeks: Stick to the above percentages, using common sense to monitor the pups growth, activity levels and adjust slightly if need be.
Puppies aged 12 weeks
and over (3 months): Feed 2 or 3 meals a day. You should be able to feed all the variety of Naked Dog raw foods by this stage. Introduce some natural treats and chews at this stage.
Puppies aged over
4 months: Begin to reduce the amount the puppy eats per day. Aiming to reach 5/6% of body weight by the time the puppy is 6 months old.
Continue to gradually reduce the % of food your puppy eats as they grow up. Until you have reached the % you wish to feed them as an adult.
It's important to carefully monitor your puppy's development and ensure they maintain a lean physique to protect their joints. Depending on your puppy's individual needs, they may require the upper or lower limits of raw dog food or raw puppy food. Keep in mind that this is a general guideline, and it's important for owners to use common sense and adjust accordingly to prevent their dog from becoming overweight. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact us for advice.
What if my dog goes off raw food or becomes fussy?
If your dog becomes fussy or stops eating raw, it's normally always a sign of overfeeding. In this case please reduce the amount you feed (in some circumstances, this may mean the dog needs less than 2% of their body weight in food) or call us for further advice. Please note the quality of ProDog Raw is such that it's generally rare for dogs to need more than 2% of their body weight in food. This is a VERY common mistake for owners to make when new to raw feeding. Remember, it's quality over quantity with ProDog!
How does giving treats work with raw dog feeding?
Remember that any treats should be given as part of the TOTAL daily feed allowance, not in addition to it. Also, be mindful that the quality of the nutrition in our frozen raw dog food is such that dogs can often need what appears to be a small amount of food in comparison with a processed feed quantity. Raw-fed dogs often start to behave more naturally and self-regulate around food. This means they eat to satisfy their appetite. A wild dog would not eat daily – far from it – so if your dog chooses to skip a meal don't be too alarmed as long as they appear fit and well in themselves. If you have any questions or need advice about any of the above, and want to talk to our team of experts, please contact us and we will be only too happy to help.
