How to calculate the food portion? (Detailed Version)

Generally, pets consume about 2%-4% of their body weight to maintain their current weight. Typical indoor adult cats usually eat close to 2% of their body weight. It is rare for cats to eat 4% unless they are very active or have gastrointestinal issues causing poor digestion. 

The feeding amount for adult dogs and cats (whether it's raw or canned food) is typically 2%-4% of their ideal weight per day. For less active/older dogs and cats, 2% may be sufficient. For highly active or young dogs and cats, 4% may be closer to their needs. It is recommended to start with the middle ground of 3% and then adjust based on your pet's performance.

Pet weight x activity level = daily food portion

Example for a cat: A 4.5kg indoor cat with moderate activity level transitioning to raw meat/fresh food with a starting guideline of 3%. 4500g x 3% = 135g The daily food portion would be 135g.

If you find that feeding 135g leaves a small amount uneaten, and your cat's weight and activity level remain unchanged, you can adjust the percentage from 3% to 2.5%. 4500g x 2.5% = 113g The adjusted food portion would be 113g.

If your pet needs to gain weight, once you know the food amount that maintains your pet's weight, you can gradually increase the portion until you reach the desired weight. If your pet needs to lose weight, once you know the food amount that maintains your pet's weight, you can gradually decrease the portion until you reach the target weight.
