I want to switch her to raw but am utterly bamboozled by how much I should feed her a day confused So much conflicting advice online! Also, where do you buy your food from and what brand?

I have a 5kg dog.
He had a chicken back and half a packet of DAF a day.

If you have a local shop that does raw food, I would suggest going there and asking for advice. It also depends on age, not just weight.

it should be 2.5-3%of their body weight. Daf have a calculator on their website

Takes into account age and activity

I had a look at daf, it looks good and the local raw food place stocks it which is handy. The website isn't clear though, the daf minces, do they include everything, like bone content etc? Or would I have to add to it?

You can buy 100% meat or 80-10-10 which is meat, organ meat and bone.
It takes a bit to get right your bone content right, too much and their poo is like rock.
