I am new to the forum and have a question about cold pressed feeding amounts. I have an eleven week old cockapoo, Milo. He weighs around 3.4kg, the breeder was feeding him Sainsbury’s own brand puppy kibble and I have successfully transitioned him to Guru Surf and Turf, which he loves. Following the Guru calculator I should be feeding him around 85g each day. I’ve used your comparison tool to look at various different cold pressed foods and the recommended feeding amounts vary greatly between the brands, even though the protein/fat etc and the ingredients are very similar. For example for a 2 month 3kg puppy Guru recommend 75g of food per day, whereas for Lukullus it’s 160g and Wilson’s and Tribal around 125g per day.
Is there a reason why Guru is so much lower than the rest? Gentle is the only one which seems the same, following the 2.5% per kg.
I currently split the 85g into four feeds, which Milo eats very quickly. We also give him some grated carrot and little bits of ham, chicken and cheese as training treats during the day. However he seems very hungry all the time, so I’m wondering if 85g is enough, especially given that other cold pressed foods recommended more for his age and weight.
I have spoken to Guru and they were very helpful but didn’t really give a straight answer about the feeding amount and the differences between them and other brands.
I would be grateful for any advice please.
