A few notes:

  • Very active, young dogs may require up to double the amounts above and often require some cooked grains, such as oats or brown rice to help satiety levels. 
  • Older, more sedentary dogs may require less than the guide.
  • Some cats will eat raw chicken necks and chicken wings.  This is highly encouraged. When given bones, they may not feel like eating their next meal.  This is normal and quite acceptable.
  • Some cats naturally starve themselves for 12-24 hours once a week or so. Do not be alarmed - this is also normal.  They may eat grass and eliminate fur balls during this time.
