My dog is 1.5 years old. She is Labrador 30 kg. She is lazy, total walk (not running) per day is 50 min. I saw so many tips on how to feed dogs. Here are three:

  1. 20*30 = 600g meat per day. Someone's advice 600+other* = 900 per day
  2. 20*30 is total food weight. That means 50% meat, 50% other. 300g meat+300 other.
  3. Someone's advice to give less meat if the dog is lazy. That means 200g meat+400 other.

*Other means buckwheat + vegetables

What is good for my dog?

  • Is she fed raw or kibble? I'm assuming you're talking about home made? Commented Feb 6, 2017 at 13:11
  • She eats raw meat. Yes its home made food.

This place has a calculator that can give you a basic idea of the ratios based upon weight. Generally speaking about 2.5% to 3% of the desired weight is what I feed to all my dogs for weight maintenance. My smallest one is hyperactive and on the skinnier end so she gets 5%.

You should keep in mind you don't have to feed bones and organs every day. The balanced meals can be once or twice a week. And I follow the rule of about 5% of the monthly intake being organs and about 8% bones.

These are some other sites to provide more insight as well. rawfeddogs.org/rawguide.html primalpooch.com/prey-model-vs-barf/
