Your How much raw food should a 40lb dog eat? Tips and Tricks

How Much Do I Feed My Puppy?

Feed puppies anywhere from 2-3x the amount an adult dog of the same weight would eat. For example, a puppy that weighs 10 pounds would eat 2-3x the amount a 10 pound adult dog would eat.

Feed very young puppies 3 or 4 times per day. Older puppies generally do just fine with twice-daily feedings.

Just like adult dogs, there are several factors that play into the amount of food to feed your puppy: age, weight, anticipated adult weight, breed and more. Observe him or her closely and adjust food quantity as needed.


If you’ve ever owned a puppy before, you know how fast they grow. It seems like every time you turn around they get bigger and bigger, no matter how badly you wish they’d stay little. As a result of this growth, puppies need the right portion of raw food to provide them with the nutrients to keep them going.

Nah. While you can find plenty of quality raw dog food calculators online, I don’t recommend you use them for one reason… I want you to use your brain. With any new skill, there’s a learning curve. Learn how to do this yourself instead of relying on a computer program to tell you what to do. That way, you understand what works for your dog. And you know when and how to tweak their diet. With practice, raw feeding becomes quite simple. Sure, you’ll experience the trial-and-error that’s natural to any new endeavor. But you’ll never become comfortable unless you put the effort in. Remember, raw feeding is a lifestyle change. Participate in it.
