Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

I switched Juno over to Taste of the Wild last week. She was started on Nutri source by the breeder. I've been feeding her based on how hungry she acts and weight gain/loss. I was feeding her 1 & 1/4 cups per day. 1/2 cup morning and night, and 1/4 in the afternoon. That was working out fine until I noticed she was asking for food more, and she was looking thinner. So I switched to 1/2 cup for all three meals. This seems to be doing okay for her, but I was looking at the Taste of the Wild bag just now, and it says for her age and weight that she needs 2 & 1/2 to 3 & 1/2 cups per day?
She is almost 11 weeks, and roughly 14-15 lbs if I had to guess. She was 11.7lbs when I got her at 8 and a half weeks.
My question is, am I not feeding her enough? She walks with me about 2 miles per day (give or take), and she is chasing my cats and playing almost constantly. Is 1 and 1/2 enough?

I kept Kale's food dish down for 10 mins and let him eat his fill till he was about 6 months. After that I started measuring his food. I started with the recommendation on the back of the bag; after that it's monitoring your dog for weight loss/weight gain and adjusting appropriately. Every dogs metabolism rate is different; the amounts listed on the back of the bag are a starting point.

Thanks for the info! I worry that if I let Juno have her way with her food, she would weigh twice what she is supposed to.
I bumped her up to 3/4 cups of food, three times a day. She got taller and longer overnight, it seems. She was also beginning to look thin. Since upping her intake, she seems a better weight. I hope! She has her first vet appointment (since my owning her) on tuesday, so I'll find out then if I'm feeding the naughty puppy enough! Haha
