Default How much Ziwi to feed?

Hi, I used the calculator on the website and it says (if I did it right) I should feed my 5 /12 lb. chi a half can a day? This is a lot more than I would expect. Does that sound right? Thanks

I have never fed the canned ZP; only the air dried. I know Lynda (Jayda) has fed canned. Maybe she will see this and answer. If not, send her a PM and ask her.

I have never used ZP canned as a full meal. I only give a heaping tablespoon of canned with a tablespoon of the freeze dried to my 5 pound pup. I think about half a can a day sounds right for a full canned meal. There is a lot more moisture in canned so to get the same nutrients it takes a higher volume.

Ah, OK. That info should still be of help.

Thanks! It's not really in my budget to do ZP full time , but I am tempted to try. I freeze it in ice cube trays and feed a cube (thawed and warmed) with some kibble when his appetite is off or it's a special day. How long does the bag of freeze dried last you?

For one dog I think I remember it lasting about a month feeding between 1/8 to 1/4 cup per meal 2 times a day for a 6 lb dog. I like ZP--have no problem with it whatsoever, but I really like Primal as well, and depending on where you buy it and which meat you buy, it can be bought up to $10.00 cheaper a bag and last the same amount of time per bag for me.
