I tried looking for a thread on this already but couldn't find one... I see so many different things from how much to feed, to what food is best, etc... and I assume it's partly because it's a matter of opinion.
So, how much food should I be feeding Roxy each day total? She is almost 5.5 months old. She weighs 3.5 pounds. Right now, I feed her Purina Pro Plan for toy breed puppies. It's a dry food. That's what she was on when she came from the breeders. I've tried to do my research... I see some sites that say this food is good, and other sites I see that it says it is TERRIBLE! Our breeder said she really likes it and thinks its a good food. She really is a great breeder and I know her dogs are VERY VERY VERY well taken care of. When we get another chi, it will definitely without a doubt be from her. Even our vet said we got a great quality chihuahua.. one that is not typical of chihuahuas, in a very positive way! So, I trust her...
...but do you think Purina Pro Plan is a good dog food? If not, what is? I don't want to have to order food offline or anything like that. I want to be able to get it in my local pet store like Pet Smart, etc.
Also, the back of the bag says I should be feeding her 1/2 cup total per day. Is this too much? Is it too little? I've seen some people that only feed their chi's 1/4 cup total a DAY. In MY opinion, I don't think that is enough at all. But I don't know? I guess that's why I'm asking, LOL. I by NO means want a fat chihuahua, but I do not want an underweight chihuahua either.
Any opinions/input would be greatly appreciated!
