Raw feeding / Re: Dog always hungry on nature’s menu

Very late update but thought it might help someone else.
I switched to a new food called they love it raw.
Honestly the best thing I could have done. It’s completely natural and no additives, the hunger pangs have definitely stopped and I now don’t get woken up at stupid o’clock for breakfast!
And an extra bonus it’s costing me about a third of the price including bones and treats!

Thanks for the replies.

I am going to try and get her weighed this weekend as I haven’t actually done that for a while but she is on over 3% for  what she weighed last time she went to the vets.

I’m not too fussed about mixing it with other things to fill her up but just seems annoying to have to do that when the food she has is supposed to be complete, if I did this I think I may aswel just do the whole meal myself. (Also the cost will rise which I would assume, so again it  is probably cheaper to do the whole meal myself as I am paying for convenience in the nuggets)
I did speak to the person that supplies my food but they suggested adding kibble but obviously this makes her scratch so not ideal either.
I am going to look into some other brands this weekend so will let you know what I end up doing.

Raw feeding / Dog always hungry on nature’s menu

Hi, looking for some advice about raw feeding.

I currently feed my almost 2 year old mastiff/rottie natures menu complete county hunter nuggets.
I made the change almost a year ago just from advice from my trainer as I mentioned she is always acratching and I’m pleased I did, her behaviour changed dramatically and she came a lot calmer, less itchy and seems to enjoy it.
Problem is, before we switched she was never an early riser and would sleep in until whenever we got up and didn’t really pester to be fed. But now she is up barking waiting by the oven(she knows it’s in there defrosting) by 6am every morning and is usually sitting by the oven by 3/4pm wanting to be fed again which I try to hold out until 6pm. My issue isn’t waking up early it’s that she’s obviously starving and will then only last until late afternoon before she’s starving again. She has 30 cubes per feed twice a day.
I don’t know if she’s just being demanding and we’re falling for it or she’s not getting enough food but she has just over the recommended amount for her size.
I wouldn’t say she’s underweight, she is small considering her breed (she’s 33kg) and her mum was very large. In comparison her brother is a lot bigger and weighs in at almost 50kg and is fed supermarket tinned wet food and pedigree or other branded dry food- just seems strange the difference?
Has anyone else experienced this and if so what did you do?
I’m considering swapping brands or even doing home made but I’m not very clued up on everything raw and also assume it’s more time consuming as I use the nuggets for convenience.

Any advice greatly appreciated as I’m just concerned I’m not feeding her enough
