Raw Food Ratio Calculator

Variety is the key to raw feeding. You are not aiming to feed a "complete and balanced" meal at every serving but to achieve the balance over time by feeding variety. You should aim for 80% meat, 10% edible bone and 10% organ meats. Out of the 10% organ meats, 5% of this should be liver, as liver is the largest organ in the body.

Remember, you know your pet best so adjust according to their nutritional needs.
Within the chart below, enter the products, weight of food, and meat/bone/organ percentages. Many meat/bone/organ percentages can be found within our product descriptions.

Properly constructed, a raw diet is the very best nutrition for our domesticated carnivores. But you need to know what foods to feed, how to avoid imbalances and make sure you have enough vital minerals in the diet. 

Remember, 4-5 different proteins in the diet is the goal. When you are determining what foods to feed, consider what Mother Nature intended.  I find myself asking, what would my fur baby eat in the wild, during which season, and how often would they eat a certain protein... 

Imbalances in the diet can be avoided when the 80/10/10 is achieved by feeding a variety overtime.  Muscle meats, bones and organs each play an important role in a carnivores diet.  But lets talk about Organs, as they are packed full of vitamins and minerals.  Of the 10% Organ Ratio in the 80/10/10, 5% of that must be Liver.  This leaves the remaining 5% to the other Secreting Organs. Secreting organs refers to Liver, Kidney,  Pancreas, Brain, Spleen, Thymus, the Testicles and Ovaries. Which means that the muscular organs like Heart, Lung, Gizzard, and Tripe are fed as muscle meats in terms of feeding purposes.
