Sorry now for asking the question. But I feel like I'm giving tilly to little food.

Since changing her over to the nature menu (barf) she is loving the food and is gone in 2mins. (unusual for her)

She is 10.6kgs at the mo was advised to spilt the 300g twice a day. Does this sound right.

That's 150g per meal.

Hi got your email. I can't seem to find info on the pack. It's the frozen blocks that I use. I went back into the girl today and ask her to re calculate and she came up with the same figure again. Said its 3% of her body weight. So she worked it out at 300g a day. Told her that I thought it was to little but she said to weigh her in a week and if she has lost weight to up the amount.
I'm going to research the energy amount there and work it out from the email u sent me. Thanks a million x 馃槃

Is this what you are feeding? The feeding guidelines will be for an adult dog, not a growing pup. Pups need 4-6% not 3%. If you are still unsure, I would contact Nature's Menu direct for clarification, a week is a long time to be feeding Tilly half the amount of food she needs.
Hope you manage to sort it out soon :hug:

Hi Jeanie

I used to use Nature's Menu frozen blocks and I used to give Biscuit 300g when he was in the 8kg region. So, I would definitely think you need to give Tilly a bit more. Ali is right that the guide is for adult dogs. I guess the best indicator would be to weigh her each week to see if she is still gaining weight and take that as a guide. I would definitely base it on the same rule as NI as the food is very similar.

She never did eat well. But since giving her this she seems to eat the portion in once sitting. 馃槃
She always looks for our food but never her own. 馃榿

We have noticed in the last 2 days or so she really lazy and tired (not like her)
Must def be a sign that she's not being fed enough. 馃槺

Hi jeanie, hope you and Tilly are doing well?
I came across this as I was searching raw feeding and wondered if any good for you, not sure if this is the same brand you are feeding

Hi Jeanie,
Remember that each manufacturer will give you different guidelines. From what I have researched with Nature's Menu ( I have fed it to mine when I ran out of their ordered food) you are feeding Tilly the adult amount, and therefore half her daily requirement. In your position, I would increase her food now, and seek confirmation from Nature's Menu. This is their phone number +44 (0)1953 883770 Good luck

Omg thanks for the post.

According to this I should be giving her 3 times the amount I'm giving her at the mo. Jesus im really confused. 馃槹

I know it is confusing, even the names of the brands, nature diet and natures menu, two different brands with different info. I feel that you need to have a good rough idea but then adjust it to your dog by keeping an eye on their weight and whether they are leaving any/still hungry and by feeling their ribcage. So far I feel I have it right for Riley who is same age as Tilly but even dogs of the same age can be so different like children. As long as the diet is balanced in my opinion 300-400g twice a day would be what I am aiming for. Like anything the more you ask the more people give you differing opinions and the more confusing it all gets!!! Xx
