Default Wet Food Amounts

Yes, it's me again! Y'all are gonna wish you never approved me for membership with all of my questions.

She still won't eat any kibble. I just went and bought her a high quality canned food to see if she'll eat it. How much per day do you typically feed of canned/wet food to your Chi?
I weighed her last night. She's 5.5 pounds. But, like I said in another thread she needs to put on about half a pound to be at what is a healthy weight for her.

Thanks!

Can you find out how many calories there are in the can? Then divide that in 4ths and feed her about 200 calories a day. IF she needs to gain weight, then maybe a little bit more. Ask your vet about how many calories she should get. The company usually has a phone number on the can. Good luck.

I need to add wet to dry to get my Kip to eat enough. He needs about 400 calories/day so I divvie it up into two meals. Each is 1/3 cup kibble (122 calories) plus 1/3 can of wet (80 calories). I mix the wet into the dry with a fork to ensure that all the dry is as least coated with the wet.
