django is small, his "ideal weight" according to your vet should be 9lbs.
i can feel his ribs but his collar is always my guide, can't slide as many fingers now! he is active, gets 2 walks twice a day, about 1/2 hour each time, weather always dictates walking time.
i feed him 1/2 cup of old food, putting it down twice a day. he eats what's left over from the morning, sometimes its all the food. however, now with the new food, all protein ziwipeak, he eats what i have given him in the new (small amounts at a time as we transition) and all the dry kibble from the old food. today i cut his old food in half, saving the other half for the afternoon meal. he's been licking his bowl clean every morning and is hungry by afternoon so i thought this might help. i always give him a few xtra kibbles when i know he's hungry and there isn't any food left in his bowl.
never added vegies, he has a very sensitive belly so we try to keep it simple. i think what's happened is i am having a hard time adjusting the new food with the old. they are soo different, it's not just a matter of transitioning same amount, the new food which looks like flat pocker chips is a dehydrated raw and he should eat 1 oz. twice a day. i think i need to break up his feedings and he gets what he gets at each sitting and not give in to giving him a little more.
