Aim to feed 2-3% of your pet’s ideal body weight, typically split into two meals a day. For pets that need to put on weight or have higher nutritional needs, increase each meal amount over time until they have achieved the optimum weight. If the animal needs to lose weight, reduce the amount fed per day until they reach their optimal weight.
Smaller dogs generally have a higher metabolism and may require slightly more, while large dogs typically need a little less.
Tailor feeding to the needs of the individual pet. The activity level, age, and size of your dog or cat will ultimately determine how much to feed them.
Puppies need roughly double the amount of food as an adult of the same size. Aim to feed 5-6% of their body weight per day, spread over three to four meals per day.
Reduce to two to three meals around 6 months of age.
As they approach maturity, start reducing the total daily amount to 2-3% of their estimated body weight.
Remember – there are no hard and fast rules for feeding – every animal has a different metabolism and nutritional requirements, so tailor feeding to suit your pet
Many of us find our pets can be reluctant or picky eaters, and have a hard time finding food they love. Some of us find joy in serving a freshly cooked meal to our pets. You can feed our ready-to-serve Gently Cooked Recipes, or gently cook our Raw Recipes yourself. Gently Cooked fresh foods are a great option if you have concerns about feeding Raw or even just a picky eater.
Serve with any liquid released during cooking, and your pet’s dinner will retain its natural nutrients.
Easy Cooking Instructions:
- Defrost frozen pouches in the refrigerator or on the counter.
- Preheat a nonstick skillet or pan on the stovetop low to medium heat. Add a splash of water or Broth for extra moisture.
- Open the pouch and add to the pan.
- Stir regularly. Cook gently for 3 to 5 minutes or until meat is lightly cooked (do not “brown” the meat). You just want the “pink” out.
- Cool completely before serving. Mix back in any separated liquids.
- Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
- When transitioning to any new food it is best to make the change over a few days.
- If mixing with a kibble, it’s a good idea to soak the kibble in warm water or appropriate liquid (like bone broth) before mixing with Allprovide.
- The addition of a probiotic or a small amount of canned pumpkin may also be helpful during the transition.
When handling any raw meat, there are simple tips to reduce potential exposure to bacteria:
- Wash your hands thoroughly after handling Allprovide, or any raw meat.
- Wash your pet’s bowl with hot soapy water after each use.
- Wipe down and wash any surfaces used to prepare your pet’s meal with an antibacterial soap or cleaner.
- Store any raw meat at the bottom of your fridge, preferably in an air-tight sealed container – this avoids any drips and cross-contamination.
- Do not leave your pet’s food out for an extensive length of time. If not eaten within thirty minutes or more, cover the bowl and put it back in the fridge.
- We recommend pre-portioning and freezing any extra food you don’t plan to feed after 72 hours of defrosting.
- Re-portioned, frozen food is best offered up to 3 months after freezing for optimal nutrition.
