Need help with portion control
From what I can find, he should probably be getting around 144 calories a day. That translates to a total of 1 1/3 trays each day assuming you are evenly alternating through all the flavors. The trays say they are 3oz each, so a total of 5oz by weight. So, I would weigh his food on a good kitchen scale. We have a nice digital one. Just put his bowl on the scale before turning it on, add food to correct weight, and feed. Judging by the rescue's recommendations, I would say to give 1.5oz for each of the two meals and 1oz for each of the two snacks.
Edit: he could go as low as 1 1/3 trays or 4oz total per day. Then you could do 1oz at each of the four feeding times or do 1.5oz twice a day and 0.5oz twice a day. Some flavors have many more calories than others, so this might change if he only eats a few of the 8 flavors.
