Hi there- really struggling with understanding how much we should feed our Lab puppy. Willow is 16 weeks old and on a raw food diet. The box from Bella & Duke says we should feed 6-8% of bodyweight at this age; well, she's 13 kg so that would mean around 750-1kg per day. Does that sound about right? We are really concerned not to let Willow get overweight, and as far as we can see she is a typical Lab in that she will eat whatever is put in front of her...or left on the table...

Thanks for your thoughts on this!

I feed by eye, and I raw feed as well. I generally give two large chicken wings or the equivalent as one meal to a pup, not the skinny supermarket ones but proper size, should weigh at least 125g each which would tally up with your 750-1000g per day.
