I had mentioned a while back about a little 2 page article and meal plan I'd written up regarding Prey Model Raw diet. I use it to send out with foster dogs when they are adopted; and have given it to numerous friends and family. It's nothing fancy, just tried my best to make a "raw cheat sheet." I hope this attaches properly, if not let me know and I'd be happy to send it via email. =)[ATTACH]16205[/ATTACH]

Is the meal plan for a 5 lb dog? If you had a 10 lb dog, would you feed double?

You want to feed your dog 3% of their ideal adult body weight per day, as a start point. Then, adjust to more or less if they lose or gain weight.

Thanks Wijic! The meal plan is for a 5lb dog, yes; but will vary for each individual. I have a 4.5lb chihuahua who eats the same as Julian, my 7lb Crested! One has oddly high metabolism and the other slow; so I agree that I'd just start at 3% and work my way up increasingly if they start to slim down in a week. =)

It truly is individual depending on each dog. We have hypothyroid IG who on raw needs 14oz per day to maintain his weight of 16lb. OTOH, Ringo, at 12lbs gains weight if he goes over 7oz per day. Both are equally active and one might think the hypo-T dog would have a lower metabolism, but that's our experience.It's good to have a guideline to start, but you really have to keep your hands and your eyes on your dog and adjust accordingly.Around here, we keep our dogs lean, not skinny but lean, so we're also adjusting amounts seasonally; they're more active outside in the spring/summer and get more then, and less so in the fall/winter.JMO,Dawn&Ringo
