    Hi all you knowledgeable people of PF!

    I have now got my puppy home and he has settled in well and I am now thinking of changing him over to raw. Now I already feed Jenny raw and my first dog raw but they came to me as almost adults so working out % was ok.

    But I am all confused with having such a young puppy :eek: How much do I feed him? And how often do I weigh him to check he is getting enough etc (say he has a growth spurt?) I am stressing about feeding raw now where I haven't doubted for years so any advice gratefully received :)

    I do the same for raw as for kibble, they get four meals a day up until 12-16 weeks of age, depending on how well they're putting weight on, then drop them down to three meals, and at around six months of age, they go down to two meals per day. I've found pups generally need a little more in ratio to their body weigh to adults while they're developing and growing, and they tend to use a lot of energy running around, where as adults spend a lot more time resting, or mine do!
