Default Pippa & Primal

So Pippa LOVES Primal......but since feeding she's lost a bit of weight. She's not having diarrhea or anything like that. Acting normal too. Going by the feeding guidelines I decided to feed her 2 nuggets daily, 1 in the morning & 1 in the evening. When I noticed her looking like she was losing weight I decided to feed her 1.5 nuggets in the morning & 1.5 in the evening. Anyone know something else to try, maybe more? She is 6 months old & 4 lbs.

I would do as you are doing, feed her more until her weight stabilises. She is probably going through a growth spurt. You can try adding a third meal if she is full at her regular mealtimes.

I have always been told to start by using the guidelines to give you an idea but to feed for your dog. Some dogs need more some dogs need less. Every dog has a different metabolism. Surprisingly BG eats more than Sonny. She is a lot smaller the Sonny but her body just requires more food.

I am happy she likes Primal. My two would love a food then get disinterested even though I always mixed it up but so far they are still huge Primal fans.
