Raw feeding puppies:
Did you know that puppies’ bodies are not able to regulate vitamins and nutrients like adult dogs, so they must obtain what they need from their food every day? This is why it is vital that they receive everything they need to grow and thrive from their food from the start.
How much to feed and how many meals to split it up into:
2 months - 10% of body weight,4 times a day
3 months- 9% of body weight, 4 times a day
4 months- 8% of body weight, 3 times a day
5 months- 7% of body weight, 3 times a day
6 months- 6% of body weight, 3 times a day
7 months- 5% of body weight, 2 times a day
8 months- 4% of body weight, 2 times a day
9 to 12 months- 3% to 2% of body weight, 2 times a day *these are just guidlines, pay attention to you dogs body condition, behavior, and bowel movements as they grow. These guidelines may need to be adjusted depending on your specific puppy.

How I choose to feed my puppy: * Feed a balanced diet starting with the 80/10/5/5 guidelines with added whole food supplements. *Feed small amounts several times a day- Irwin is currently eating 4 times a day.
* Provide soft edible bones to start out with. (His starting bones are duck feet and wings.)
* Provide small amounts of various organs. They’re nutrient dense and a vital part of the diet.
*Provide a variety of protein sources. Single protein meals can be deficient in vital nutrients.

Note: This is how I personally choose to feed and nourish my puppy.I choose to provide a variety of proteins from the start as single protein meals will be lacking in vital nutrients. He is currently on day 3 of raw feeding, and I’m happy to report his awful kibble poops are officially gone!
