I think we're doing okay with what we feed him, I was just wondering what other people do.You should use a measuring cup or weigh the food. Know the calories in the food you are feeding and start with what calories are needed for the weight, activity level and metabolism of the dog. Double the amount fed if the dog is a puppy.
It is VERY easy to overfeed.
We are feeding him two types of food currently, because we got over halfway through the current bag and I wanted to introduce a different food in.How does 1.5 ounces equate to the calories in his food or to a cup measurement (1/8th, 1/4, etc.)?
You likely are already aware, but in case not, please be certain that the jerky you feed is not made in China or product of China made in America.
Aw, that's really sad and scaryI do measure but some here weigh. I have a small scale. For fun, I think I will weigh what I am feeding just to see how far off I am with measuring!
The product quality is just not regulated and many, many dogs (some here are affected) have been permanently damaged (liver, kidney, adrenal) and many, many dogs have died.
The FDA has issued a number or warnings yet no product recall has occurred. I still see some of these products in stores. MANY people do not know and think they are doing well for their pets.
