Daily feeding guide chart
|This product contains no meat*|
|Adult Dog Weight||Daily feed Amount*|
The % figure relates to the body weight of your dog.
Example: A dog with a weight of 20kg and a recommended daily feed quantity of 2-2.5% would require 400-500g of food per day.
The above values are guidelines for the amount of food for normally active, not neutered healthy dogs. However, this should be adapted to suit your dog's diet when fed alongside meat. It may also change due to your dog's individual needs which may differ by up to 50% from the calculated values due to age, breed or activity. These are only starting points for the estimation of the daily amount of feed.
Storage & Feeding: Once opened we recommend using all of the contents within 4 days and storing in your fridge between meals to keep it fresh, this is to ensure the highest nutritional value of the ingredients as we do not use any synthetic preservatives within the food.
To store unopened: Keep in a cool dry place, away from direct sunlight
Once opened: Store in the fridge & use within 4 days
How to transition from your current dog food onto FRESCO...
You can easily transition your dog one of two ways depending on your dog's acceptance to new foods within their diet. There is no set rule as every dog is different, we do however favour a straight swap technique for effortless transitioning.
- Skip a meal (preferably an evening feed) and simple serve our FRESCO food the next morning
- Feed a single protein, one they are most comfortable with and have eaten previously. Feed this protein for a 14 day period so their internal digestive system can adapt to their new food
Add new proteins, After 14 days simply start introducing new proteins into their diet, we recommend a minimum of 3 proteins. Alternate these proteins throughout the month to create a varied balanced diet.
How to serve:
Simply serve your desired amount based on your dog's age, weight and activity levels.
Top Tip: Our Wet Food lines can be happily mixed alongside our Dry RAW diets, calculate both amounts separately as your Dry RAW portion will be less than the wet food amount required per day as it contains little to no moisture.

My dogs loved this food -they have a varied diet anyway and this is just another variation for them. The pate like consistency meant it spread well on their licki mats which they love.
I had tried a couple of different insect based dog foods previously both I wasn’t happy with the amount of added starchy carbs in the foods and my dogs didn’t like the food either (plus their poos were huge and smelly!). Fresco’s ingredients are minimal but carefully selected and the food actually smells really good! My dogs loved it and their “output” was fine too. It’s a bit too expensive for us to feed full time at the moment, but we’re going to continue incorporating some insect based food into their raw diets to reduce our carbon footprint whilst keeping our dogs healthy!
