Default ZiwiPeak?

So.. I work at this really cool little pet food store now and so I get a bit of a discount on food which I'm stoked about. We have a little bit of ZiwiPeak in stock and I'm thinking of giving it a try. Probably not as 100% of the diet, but maybe to have on-hand if I run out of raw or something.

My big question/concern, is that my dogs are going to feel hungry on this stuff! The amount to feed is so tiny, I don't know how they could possibly feel full. Have any of you found this with your dogs?

Also, any idea how long a 2.2lb bag should last for my 4lb and 15lb dogs (assuming I was feeding it as 100% of their diet)?

My dogs eat mostly ZiwiPeak with raw added. They are hungry at mealtimes, but they don't seem to be starving all of the time. I had the same concern when I started ZiwiPeak. If you add a little water to the ZiwiPeak when you feed, it will slow them down and help them feel satisfied.

Ziwipeak is a calorie dense food. I feed each about 1/4 at each meal (I am feeding double because they are puppies still). There are plenty of people here who feed 1/8-1/4 cup of kibble as well.
Ziwipeak has no grains, no vegetables, no fruit, no fillers. It is meat. Therefore, they do not need as much to feel as full and to get the calories and nutrients they need.
The small bag lasts us 2 weeks, keeping in mind we feed double. Once we cut back a bit, I would expect a bag to last them 3 or so weeks. They are 3 3/4 lbs. at the moment.
