This calculator is an estimate ONLY.  Different proteins and brands have different calories and nutritional content so the serving serving size is based on the product's recommended feeding guides (normal/non-active). Food portions can vary depending on your dogs age, breed, metabolism, current health and food brand. Please watch your dog closely during the first month and adjust as needed.

Raw dog food is estimated as 2% of body weight.  The density of the dog food was based on actual data, or when unavailable as 2 cups per pound for raw and 4 cups per pound for dry dog food.

The package weight, daily serving and budget estimate is current to a February 2023 review of product specifications and pricing.
