Here's there specific feeding guidelines: Natural Range Of Premium Pet-food Products - Ziwipeak - Natural New Zealand Pet Nutrition

That means a 7 lb dog like my Trig should only be getting 1/2 scoop total per day, 1/4 scoop each meal.

You can put 3-4 golf balls in his bowl w/ his food, that will slow him down because he will have to eat around them.

Heh, I would say about 1/3 scoop or just under for TucTuc, 1/3 for Nana, and maybe start Mojie at 1/3 but monitor his weight...if you feed 2 meals a day, split that amount in 1/2. I think Ziwi is a great food but you feed soooo little. I am not psycologically strong enough to feed it alone lol, my dogs were always acting more starved than usual.

oh ok...thank you....

I feel the same way...I often go back to the bag to give them a little more.....I don't want them to be over weight that's for sure....especially MoJie cause he finish like so fast..

When we fed kibble still we had to do that for Trigger...he otherwise would shove all his food in his mouth in one scoop and swallow. It was slightly ridiculous.
