My 10 lb chi eats hardly anything at all and is moderately active, yet the 2 lb chi I just adopted eats more than her does. I swear these lil guys just figure it out for themselves.

Ziwipeak is easy to over feed on, though. That's why I started it for the 10 lb one, but go with the guideline and use your best judgement from there. You will see the results pretty quickly.

It is easier for me to feed by tablespoons rather than weight or scoops. I figured it out for Jaxx who was supposed to get .6 of a scoop. It equaled out to a little over 2.5 tablespoons per day. I plan on starting Jaxx out on 1.25 tablespoons per meal and see how he does on it.
I have taken his Orijen down some and adding ZP to his meals and I have already noticed he has gained a little weight so I am sure that I will have to be careful once he is getting full ZP
