I give curly chews which I refer to as flossies. The ones I buy are made in the USA, are odor free and 6 calories per inch. Admittedly, they comprise a large part of his diet so he receives a 9-11 inch flossie (66 calories) per day. This keeps him busy almost all day, on and off, as he chews it down to a stub (then we toss to avoid a chocking hazard). I supplement them with a one-a-day vitamin, fruit and veggies, and additional protein. I don't calorie count. Eli appears to have a very good weight (15lbs) and muscle tone. Additionally, I watch his poop. If he poops a good amount daily I know he's getting enough. Not scientific but it worked for my kids so.... This might be TMI but know that a flossie could make your Hav reject his/her normal food that day. Hope this helps.
