Stella's feeding calculator says to feed 2 pattys a day for 5 lbs. That's about 110 calories. When I go on DogFoodAdvisor and put in her ideal weight it says 200 calories a day. We were feeding her 1 Stella's at night and fresh raw for breakfast. Long story short ( see my other thread on her not eating breakfast) she is a little chunky at 6 pounds.
Now I'm not sure how much to feed her. My plan is to cut her back to 1 Stella's a day split between 2 meals and if she needs it a snack ( taken out of the total). But she's done fine with 2 meals before. But that's only 55 calories.
I'm just not used to having this tiny of a dog. My husband is the one that feeds her breakfast ( I'm not up at that hour) and he does tend to overfeed. I have to remind him when the German Shepherd is getting chunky so he can cut back on food ( GSD only eats fresh raw).
So how much should be enough? How much do you all feed?
I can't believe after feeding raw for so many years and knowing that you use the the dogs condition as the guide, that I'm asking this but she's so tiny. And she was so thin at 4.75 lbs when we found her. She was looking good around 5.3 lbs I just want her to be ok. I feel like I'm failing, she's had me worried all week with the white foamy vomit and not eating breakfast.
1 Stella's is only 55 calories, surely that can't be enough calories even for a 5 lb chihuahua.
