    9 month old female

    My 9 month old was eating around 6 cups a day. I cut her back to around 4 or 5 and she started losing weight so im jumping her back up to 6 cups.. is it normal for her to eat more than recommended? She is currently on 4heath grain free from tractor supply. We also put about 1/2 cup of cooked rice and cooked eggs in with her meals

    I have fed all my dogs twice a day. It stops them from having that acid stomach thing, when they bring up a little bile, and with larger breeds it can help to prevent bloat.

    The amount on the back of the packs is a guide only.

    Like us, dogs have individual metabolisms so if feeding more doesn't pile on the pounds, it's OK to do so.

    Obviously, if the amount is truly excessive and the dog can't maintain a healthy weight then a vet visit is in order

    Yea she isnt having a hard time keeping the pounds on for sure.. just has an appetite. I adjusted her intake and she seems to have adjusted well.. No sloppy stool and looks better. I also started raw and she really loves that! I feel like the best thing ive done is stop over thinking and just feed my dog lol.. thanks for the reply

    Personally, if I was a dog, I would really prefer getting fed twice daily. I don’t think I’d like watching my humans have multiple meals and me sitting there with an empty stomach.
    Dogs stomachs empty after a few hours. They also get hunger headaches just like all mammals (I read about mammal headaches in a book, it sounds feasible).
