How Much to Feed Your Dog on a Raw Diet
Friday, 30 September 2016 19:16

chris

One of the most popular raw-feeding FAQs I get is, "How much do I feed my dog?" It's a good question, but there are a number of variables to consider, such as age, activity level, metabolism and overall condition.

The rule of thumb is 2.5% of your dog's body weight per day, so if you have a 100 lb dog, you'd feed him about 2.5 lbs per day. But this benchmark is just the starting point. For example, a puppy will eat double or about 5% its bodyweight and an active sporting dog will also eat more than the 2.5% mark. Conversely, an overweight pooch or a less-active senior will eat less.

The deal is that you have to fine tune the diet. Give it a couple months to see how your dog's doing on his new raw diet and judge by his weight and appetite how much he really needs. Like people, each dog's dietary needs are different and you must customize his portions accordingly.

On Alert at Dog Park

Nobody flip-flops on going to the dog park like me. On one hand, I'm always aware of the potential for a scrap, but my dog, DJ, has such a good time, I take him anyways. He plays his heart out, then chills for the rest of the day.

Last Sunday however, my deep reservations came to fruition. I led him into the park despite sensing that one of the dogs was unbalanced. He greeted DJ at the entrance with a growl, but I still marched onward. For about 15 minutes all was okay. They played well and DJ was having fun. Then out of the blue, the unbalanced dog lunged at DJ and a fight ensued.

Fortunately, I pulled DJ off before there was damage but it was getting nasty. Pleased to report that DJ left unscathed, but I think I'll avoid the park for a while. Like I say, it only takes one incident for something to happen. So hey, beware of dog parks and proceed with caution.

 
Twice a Day Feeding?

dog not eating
 
Lately I've had a change of mind about not just my dog's feeding schedule, but for most dogs. You see, I used to be a proponent of once-a-day feeding -
but not necessarily anymore. My thought process used to be: if the dog eats his raw meal in the morning, he will have to urinate and go to bed with an empty bladder. Keep in mind that a raw diet is something like 70% + water (like the human body), so raw-fed dogs urinate regularly...(to say the least).
 
Then there was my second point: giving a dog 2 meals a day is something we do because we humanize them. A wild canine would never eat a couple times a day, in fact, they wouldn't even eat daily.
 
For years, I smugly held on to this conviction, but when I noticed that my dog wasn't always eating his entire meal in the morning - he'd save part for later - I reconsidered. Why was I so adamant about this once-a-day feeding when it obviously wasn't jiving with my dog? After all, I don't want to be as hard-headed as my terrier.
 
I started feeding him twice a day and noticed that he gobbled down his meals with gusto. Then it hit me: this is more natural to him, so why fight it?
 
As in life, one has to be flexible, a quality which comes in handy when raising a dog.
 
Your Dog Should Eat Almost Anything

Here's my theory for all it's worth. Your cat or dog should eat basically anything. I'm not a big believer that your cat or dog won't eat this or that. Maybe he won't eat it, or he doesn't because you let him get away with it? To paraphrase Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer, you're humanizing your dog and that's a mistake. A dog should eat anything, after all, they are part scavenger. If my dog gets picky and turns up his nose at some delicious meat, I let him go hungry till he eats it. And believe me he eventually does. So I don't buy the excuse that a dog doesn't like a particular product. Don't let him get away with it and your life will be made easier.

 
Fresh vs. Dehydrated Raw Diet For Your Dog
Tuesday, 24 November 2015 21:15

Dehydrated raw food for dogs is okay...if you're traveling, but it's a far cry from feeding your pooch the real thing. 
 
It reminds me of the old powdered orange drink, Tang. They used to advertise that astronauts drank it. So it was convenient for space travel, that's about the best you can say about that powdered drink. 
 
I would argue that the same applies to dehydrated raw food - just add water and you've got your raw meal. Convenient - maybe, but where's the chew? Where are the dental benefits? Instead of cleaning their teeth on frozen chunks of meat, the dog ends up lapping up his food like a bowl of porridge. 
 
I'm also quite sure that the taste isn't anywhere near as good as raw food in its original form. Of course if you've been chosen to go on the Mars One mission along with your dog, then that's another story...
