I have had tones of great feedback from you guys about the posts containing whats on the menu for my two.
So here is what they have eaten this week.
To let you know where we are at size and portion wise. Hendrix (left bowl) eats 550g-600g twice a day. Luna (right bowl) eats 400g twice a day. This shows you how different dogs need different amounts of food.
While Hendrix is eating more than Luna he is only eating 4% of his body weigh daily. An average puppy at his age (7 months) should really be eating 5% which for 29kg Hendrix would be 1.45kg. However he just doesnt need that much for his body. Luna on the other hand is now 18 months old and would normally be eating around 2-3% of her body weigh. However she is eating almost 4% of her body weight too. She just needs more for her body and metabolism. At Hendrix’s age she was still eating 7%.
So although there are feeding guidelines they are just that, guidelines. They act as a good starting point and then you must alter to fit your dogs needs.
Also on top of their evening meals they all get garlic and Diatomaceous Earth every night as flee, worm and parasite prevention (type parasite into the search bar on this page to find out more). They also get a mixture of Turmeric, Black Pepper, Spirulina, Salmon Oil, Coconut oil and Natural Yogurt. All powders are fully mixed into their meat as to avoid any powders being inhaled when eating which could cause discomfort.
