I just noticed I had my RAW amounts worked out entirely wrong...
This is what I had orginally planned and posted and every said it seemed okay... but it seemed like quite a bit for an 8 week old pup.
RMB – 12.6 oz
MM – 14 oz
OM – 1.4 oz
Going by Lauri's formula, let's say an active pup (7-8 on her scale) that weighs 20lbs would get 3.00% of the pups body weight, which in this case would only be .6 lbs... Originally, I was looking at 1.8 lbs... 3x the amount he needs.
I just need someone to clairify my numbers for me... I guess the first thing I need to know is how much a typical 8 week old male pup weights. I'm portioning and then freezing his OM tonight, so wanted to check my numbers and see I'm really off... or at least I think I am
Guessing an 8 week old pup would weight about 20lbs, that would change my numbers from those up above to:
RMB - .27lbs
MM - .3 lbs
OM - .03 lbs
Can someone help me here, because now I'm completely confused, when I thought I had it down pat as far as weighing out the portions and daily totals... grr....
