Frequently Asked Questions

Dive into clarity with our FAQ repository, where answers await your every question.

How are the servings calculated for my dog?
We work closely with our veterinary nutritionists to identify the appropriate calorie requirements for different breeds, ages, activity levels, and ideal weight combinations. The feeding guidelines are also specified on the product’s packaging and website. Some dogs metabolize more quickly than others, therefore certain regimens may need to be adjusted further.
Is our food suitable for pets?
Yes, our dog food has advantages. Every dog food recipe is made using an ingredient list that has been carefully chosen to provide nutrients that support your pet’s general health. Dog food product pages on the Bigpaw website and product labels provide more nutritional information.
Why does The BigPaw Project taste better than other dog food and smell so good?
High-quality dried chicken, fresh ingredients, and minimal processing methods are used in The BigPaw Project. The reason dogs find it so alluring is that it helps preserve the natural scents.
My puppy occasionally gets diarrhea. Is it something I'm feeding it?
Pet owners frequently complain about diarrhea or soft stools, particularly dog owners who walk their pets on leashes and cat owners who are in charge of keeping the litter box clean. Undoubtedly, dietary intolerances can disturb the digestive system and result in vomiting or diarrhea. On the other hand, you would anticipate daily symptoms of digestive distress rather than sporadic ones if your pet is not tolerant of anything in their regular diet.

The most likely cause of sporadic diarrhea in dogs is probably something they ate that wasn’t part of their usual diet.

So how do I know how much to feed my fluffy carnivore?
Feeding guidelines provided on pet food packaging can be a helpful starting point. These guidelines typically recommend an amount based on your puppy’s weight or size. However, it’s essential to remember that these are just general recommendations and may need adjustment based on your puppy’s individual metabolism, activity level, and other factors.

Here are some general tips for feeding your puppy:

  1. Follow the Guidelines: Start with the recommended amount on the packaging based on your puppy’s weight.
  2. Monitor Body Condition: Regularly assess your puppy’s body condition. You should be able to feel their ribs without excess fat covering them.
  3. Adjust as Needed: If your puppy is gaining too much weight, reduce the amount of food slightly. If they’re losing weight or appear too thin, increase the amount.
  4. Consider Growth Phases: Puppies go through rapid growth phases, so their nutritional needs may change. Be prepared to adjust their food intake accordingly.
  5. Feed BigPaw Food: Choose a high-quality puppy food that is appropriate for their breed size and formulated to meet their specific nutritional needs.
  6. Avoid Overfeeding: Overfeeding can lead to obesity and other health problems. Stick to the recommended portion sizes and avoid giving too many treats.
  7. Consult Your Vet: Your veterinarian can provide personalized advice based on your puppy’s age, breed, size, and health status.

By monitoring your puppy’s growth, body condition, and energy levels, you can adjust their food intake to ensure they’re getting the nutrition they need without excess calories.

What is the best way to store my dry pet food?
Our foods remain freshest when stored in a cool, dry location. The food can be stored in the bag, but make sure to protect it from pests that may be attracted to the food (or hungry pets that may take an extra meal). Many customers choose to dump the food into a bin or container. This is certainly a reasonable way to store the food, but make sure to follow these simple steps:

  1. Finish all of the food from one bag before adding another bag into the bin. If you have a small amount left, you can transfer it to a plastic bag so that you can proceed to step #2.
  2. Wash the bin with hot, soapy water and dry thoroughly before adding a new bag of food.
  3. Cut out the production code and “best before” information from the bag and tape it to the top of the bin so that if you have any questions or concerns, you can provide this information to the customer support department.
  4. Store the bin in a cool, dry location. Extreme heat can cause the food to spoil and excessive moisture can lead to mold growth in the bin.
Where is your food manufactured?
