How Much Raw Paw Feast To Feed?



One question that comes up often when it comes to raw food is: "How much should I feed my pet?"


It's a GREAT question! And the answer may surprise you!

Ready for it?


"Not much!"


Seriously. Raw Paw Feast, unlike commercial-grade kibble and wet food, contains NO fillers. You heard that right! You won't find any rice, corn, or unnecessary ingredients to bulk up (and ultimately cheapen!) our formulas.


What does this mean for you? First off, you get much more bang for your buck! At first glance, our prices may appear to be MUCH more expensive than commercial food you can find at Petco or Target. And while you are paying a bit more (after all, this is a premium product!), ounce for ounce, it's not as expensive as you might think!


What does this mean for your pet? Since raw food contains only the ingredients they need (and none of what they don't), our formulas are processed much more quickly and efficiently in your pet's body. Instead of their body's energy going into separating out the fillers from the good stuff, that energy can go straight into digesting the food!


Our cat, Walcott, weighs about 10 pounds. Using our handy pet feeding calculator, that means that she needs around 4.2 ounces a day to maintain her weight.


We split this 4.2 ounces into three meals per day: one in the morning -- around 7:30am; the second around 5pm, and the third right before bedtime -- around 10pm. This schedule works well for Walcott, but listen to your pet! Every pet is a little different :)


Here's a photo to show what one meal looks like for Walcott (remember, we feed her three times per day!):



We use a food scale to get the most accurate measurements! You can find a very reasonably priced food scale at Walmart, Target, or Amazon.


It doesn't seem like much -- and Walcott would LOVE to eat much more than this, believe us! -- but this is just the right amount to feed for her weight and activity level.
