    Defaultcomputations of amounts? another ?

    According to the BARF site formula..if Dakota weighs 25lbs..he only gets 8 ounces of food a day..does that sound right??? It doesn't sound like enough to me.

    How old is he? It is the percentage of the amount that he is suppose to weigh. At least that is what I do and it works.

    Yes, I would say 70 pounds is a good starting point. If you find that he is getting too chubby, then back off a little. If he is too skinny, then add a little.

    Just the reverse for an adult dog who is overweight. I have a Blue Heeler who is 65 pounds. Her ideal weight is 55 pounds. I feed her 2% of her 55 pound ideal weight, and she is losing.

    Thank you! I am still having a bit of a hard time feeding raw..but I'm sure it will feel better to me as time goes by. I do believe Dakota is not the least bit worried about it..LOL He's loving it!
