Green'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.

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.
