Jambo's Raw Feeding Calculator

Once you have decided that a Raw diet is the right choice for your dog you then need to know how much food to give on a daily basis.

An adult dog should be fed 1-2 times daily.  This calculator can give you a guide to how much to feed. But, please remember that each dog is an individual, this is a starting point.  Know your dog, and be guided by how your dog looks and reacts, and adjust the % accordingly if overweight or underweight.

A general rule to maintain existing weight is to feed 2 – 3% of current weight of dog.

Feeding A Puppy

As a rule of thumb enter the percentages below when calculating how much to feed your puppy.

0-4 months  8%
4-6 months 6-8%
6-9 months 4%
9-12 months 3%
12 months  2.5%

To help you introduce a raw diet to your dog we've found the following works really well.

  • 0–3 weeks: Mother’s milk
  • 3–4 weeks: Feed 3 x daily. Start on soft foods. In the wild a puppy would be eating regurgitated food from its mother, so keep things gentle such as Egg & finely minced chicken with a little goats milk if needed for consistency.
  • 6 weeks: Introduce chicken wings and more adult food but not too much bone. No more than 10-15% bone content.
  • 12 weeks: Full adult diet and cut back to two meals a day.
  • Fully grown: 1-2 meals a day.
