|When Reyna was growing, I did around 10% of current weight until that was even with what 3% of what I thought her ideal adult weight was and then I switched to that. Yes, it sounds like a lot, but you can adjust accordingly based on body condition.
I would guesstimate adult weight around 150lbs. Thats relatively normal for an adult female bitch, and again, you can always change based on body condition. If she gets too skinny, add more. Gets fat, add less. HOWEVER, let me caution you by saying that with these big kids, it is ALWAYS better for them to be slightly underweight than any little bit overweight. You DO NOT want that on growing joints.
I too would give chicken a shot before writing it off. A lot of my customers have dogs that are allergic to chicken in kibble form, but not in raw. Otherwise, turkey necks are a great alternative.
