WATCHING YOUR PETS WEIGHT

Your pets weight has a huge impact on their health and quality of life. A variety of factors can also play into your pets weight from their activity levels to their metabolisms. So it's important to keep an eye on their weight, especially when changing their food, and consult with your veterinarian if there are significant fluctuations in their weight.

TIPS & TRICKS

Keep an eye on weight gain or loss and adjust food intake accordingly.

Active dogs and dogs with a higher metabolism may need more food, while seniors often need less.

Use the rib test often. You should be able to readily feel your dog’s ribs, but they should have some flesh on them, and not be too pronounced.
Puppies and young dogs should be fed about 5% of their body weight. Like all young creatures, puppies grow in “fits and starts” that requires constant adjustments, feeding more when in a growth spurt and less when not.

Watch your pets’ weight and condition and adjust amounts accordingly.

GOOD HEALTH STARTS WITH A GOOD DIET

Feeding your pets raw food is all about giving them the best, most biologically nutritious and metabolically absorbable diet possible.
