Default Question about the size of the daily raw meal

Im trying to figure out the portions of raw food to give my puppy.

I read on some websites that say divide a chicken in four pieces and use one piece a day. That seems too much if I go by 2-3% of body weight per day.

For puppies you want to aim for 10% of current weight or 2-3% of adult weight (use sire or dam's weight). I would also try to feed 3x a day for puppies.

She weights 15 lbs. so about 24 ounces a day? I think I'm feeding her about half of that right now.

Poor girl

Yes 680 grams is 10% of her weight and remember this is just a guideline as she is going through phases of rapid growth she may need to eat more.
