How much does Madi weigh? I give Tango just a tad under 1/4 cup twice a day. He weighs just under 4 lbs.....3.9 lbs to be exact. That portion is keeping him at a healthy size/weight.
I'm feeding Jazz the same amount, but spread over 3 feedings a day. She's still a puppy, 3 1/2 months old, 2lbs 3ozs at last weigh-in 2 weeks ago. I leave the food down for 15 minutes before I take it away. She usually goes at it pretty quickly, but walks away when there's still a bit left. At her age with so much growing still to do, I want to make sure she gets enough, but not not be able to eat obsessively (which she's shown no signs of.)
Smashy, I'm not trying to hijack your thread, but I wanted you to have a couple of examples of quantity versus size/weight versus age, to hopefully help lessen your confusion.
