Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Amount Fed & When   Sun Nov 03, 2013 12:37 am

We are currently feeding Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream. Bane is 7 1/2 months old, and Willow will be six months old this month. They are each getting 2 cups a day; 1 cup in the morning, 1 cup at night. They are not underweight, nor are they underweight. I think they are both at a perfect weight for their age, and their current height. My main question is when do you feed? Do you feed twice a day, once in the morning, once at night? Or do you just feed once a day, in the evening?

Thanks in advance!

Shadow is about 5 1/2 months. I feed him exactly how you feed yours, a cup in the morning and a cup at night. He usually leaves about a tablespoon (rough estimate) and will snack on it later. He has lost his baby teeth, so he will usually only chew on things he's not supposed to when he's hungry, if we get off schedule. One time, he tried to chew the drawer pulls as I was getting his food, he was getting a little impatient. I was actually feeding him 1 1/2 cups at each meal and he only ate about a cup, so I started giving him less and he seems content.

That's how our two are. Although, I think I need to up Willow on her feed here this week. She always acts likes she hungry, and eats quickly (she isn't inhaling her food, so I'm not too worried about it), and then goes to look for more in Bane's bowl. I may put her back on two and a half cups a day for a while since we are going to go back to walking a couple miles a day now that I'm home more again.

I went ahead and upped Willow's food to 3 cups per day this last week. She has definitely not been "looking" for her food when she is done eating, and she's had a bit of a growth spurt.

My pup was 6 months this week. He was getting 1 cup, twice daily. I upped the amount to 1 1/2 cups twice a day. I also started switching him over to TOTW. His stools have been very soft, without form. Now, my husband tells me, the breeder said stools would be loose if we fed him to much. So we cut back to 1 cup. Not sure how to proceed. Arrghh, shouldn't this be easier?, lol

Bane had that exact issue when we fed too much when he was younger. He's now 8 months old, and receives 3 cups a day, 1 1/2 cups per feeding. We were also feeding Blue Buffalo Wilderness at that time, and it wasn't working for either of them. We switched them about a month and a half ago, cold turkey to Taste of the Wild, and they've done REALLY well on it. Hopefully your guy gets his tummy sorted out!
