I'm thinking of buying raw pre made food but the bags seem so tiny. How long do they last? I read for the patty's pugs get 1/4 to 1/3? That seems like nothing lol. Also does anyone get the food from amazon? I am looking for the cheapest place to get it. I am thinking of Stella and chewy pattys. I know nothing about buying raw but I want to try it.
Be careful ordering raw online. If it gets delivered and you happen to be gone, it can thaw and ruin the whole shipment. Better to get what is available locally. Depending on your dog's age and activity level, they will get 1/2-1 (burger-sized) patty per day, split into two feedings. There are usually 12 patties to a sleeve, so that means it will last one dog from 24-12 days, depending on how much they get. Flood the meal with water, it makes them feel more full and is good for their bladder and kidneys.
In a gentle way, you can shake the world.

Okay I will look locally plus that saves me shipping money. Thank you very much I would of had no clue about the water.
I'm using Stella & Chewey's freeze dried raw because I can't find any locally and didn't want to have the thaw problem. I order online at MrChewey's .com, that maybe another option for you to consider. I buy the large bag and it lasts almost 2weeks, I feed 2 patties in am and 1 1/2 pm.You have to add water to these as well.

Due to the nutrient availablity in a high quality raw food, your Pugs won't need to eat as much. Ours get 6 ounces a day split into 2 meals. Since there is minimal fillers, they'll poop less also. It's a win/win situation.

Jackie yea I live by you and I googled that brand and your right no where here has it. The natures variety is suppose to be sold in new Bern at nauti paws so I'm gonna call them and see the prices. C roller that makes sense at first I was like no way that's not enough but I see now. Thank you guys for all the info
Ok I found somewhere locally its called natures variety and its chubs? How much of a chub would you feed?
Once again I'm reminded of my age. I've never heard of these products. So, what exactly is the stuff? Is it some form of frozen meat?

I use the premade patties in Natures Variety and Primal. They are 8 ounces. The new duck flavor (Natures Variety) is lower in fat. I give 1 patty. But if you buy the chub, you'll need a scale to measure out the amount you're going to feed, 6-8 ounces.
