Hi everyone!!
Please meet Maggie, she is nearly 5 months old, front paw to top of her shoulders she is 15 inches BUT she is only 16lbs. People keep saying she is "tiny" for a boxer and although she is my 3rd boxer, she is my first puppy...
She is raw fed 3 times a day 80/10/10 and is fed 700g daily. I have read raw feeding slows growth but wanted to make sure she is as she should be, obviously beautiful 馃槏

Well welcome aboard and you have a very beautiful girl there! :)

I am not an expert on raw feeding? But that does not matter. What your hearing from "other people," about your "Boxer." Is the same old crap, I heard I from "other people," about my gril more than 15 years ago!

But that does not matter. If you lessen to others? You will turn your girl into a "Fatty Mac Fat Face?" She is your dog, does she appear to be starving or hungry all the time? How is her energy level?

I am pretty sure your answer would be ... she seems to be fine? She is your dog so it is your choice as to how (much) to feed her? But in my experience if your 'dogo," want's more food than you already serviced her?

She will "flip the bowl over and bring it to you!" If she want's more food ... she will let you know! :)

Beautiful color. I've owned two Boxers that developed pancreatitis, and one with IBD along with it. Too much fat for a dog who's sensitive to pancreatic disease. A GI specialist said bacteria can back up into the pancreatic duct with raw, and be an issue. There's a test that diagnoses inflammation of the pancreas from IDEXX. The Spec-cPL. If there are any symptoms of vomiting, pacing from possible pin, or refusal to eat or drink water, you can test to see if this is an issue. It's great they've developed a test to diagnose it if it does develop.
