We have given you some approximate measurements for the quantity to feed your animals. Each dog, however has its own requirements based on its own metabolic rate, health, fitness, age, weight etc.
So the weights must be adjusted accordingly for each animal. If you find your dog doesn’t completely finish its meal, give it less meat next time. Or if it is putting on weight, obviously feed it less.
Working people will have to develop their feeding routine to suit their own time schedule. The Greenark cereal mix is alone sufficient in every way to give your pet all its nutritional requirements ( although it contains only minute quantities of oil as it is a dried mix ).
No completely natural diet would be the same day in day out, so we recommend adding some variety to the diet if you are able. Some examples are included below.
Remember always feed whole foods.
