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.

Welcome to the forum. The best thing you can do is look on the bag for feeding recommendations. There are other things that get involved with feeding, she may be more active than most pups. Is she up to date with dewormers and is her poo at a good consistency? What does your vet think, is she at a good weight for her age, etc.?

At her age, it wouldn't hurt to feed 1 cup three times per day, unless the increased amount impacts her negatively.

Indigo is 5.5 months old and Loves to eat. She would eat non stop if I let her. I mix the Wysong puppy Kibble with some of the wet asa topper...(rabbit, quit, venison) 2 times a day and of corse there are treats of string cheese and chemical free hot dogs....I am afraid she is getting too much but she is all muscle and weight 33.5 pounds. Should I be giving her more?

Riley is almost 4 months old and we are on 2 cups a day spread out over 3 meals. This is slightly more than the recommended amount. We are feeding her Acana food.

She would eat more if we gave it to her.

I think your on the right track.

Clydisvillage - your post got lost in that thread, sorry. It's always best to start a new thread, even if it's on a similar topic (unless, of course, you're responding to someones note in the thread).

I think you'll find that the best gauge to the amount of food is what comes out the other end. If it's tight then you're on the right track. If it's loose (sloppy, runny) then given that she's in good health you're probably feeding too much.

Assume in almost all cases that what's on the bag is at least 25% too much, Husky's have an amazing metabolism and seldom need as much as other dogs.

If Indigo is on good health and her stool is not loose then I think you can assume you're doing a good job. Most Husky's, like most older breeds, will eat whatever, whenever to store it up for the lean times, then we come along and give them too much and their bodies have to do something with it ....
