Believe me it's easier than putting them on a diet if they do gain.... Those sad hungry eyes. The reccomended amounts are often too much and don't take treats into consideration..
Petunia is 4 years old and weighs 14 lbs. she is active but not to the extreme.
I did cut back on the amount I'm feeding Petunia and they way I'm feeding her.
When I feed her the NV I give her 3 medallions in the morning and a half cup of Fromm kibble in the evening. She gobbles down the raw food and sometimes she passes on the kibble and sometimes she will eat it. The Stella and Chewy's is larger raw medallions, I'll feed her two of those.
She really enjoys the raw and picks at the Fromm's kibble.
I have two bags of Fromm's left and when that is gone I'll feed only raw and figure out the right amount to feed her.
She does several treats a day. Fromm's grain free and Bil-Jac liver treats. She is very treat motivated. She will do anything for a treat.
