Re: First meal, but was it enough?


My collies would only get a wing each (one is around 16kg, the other is 28kg but is a fat lazy biffa so he's rationed) but my pointer would get 2 or 3 (32kg) in one meal.

It depends how much your dog exercises, how much they weigh and also was the dog already fed previously in the day? The skin of a chicken is quite high in fat too but I guess you will just have to play it by eye and keep a check on her weight.

I will always opt for underfeeding as I like my dogs lean and it's also easier to give them a bit extra food if they are thinning than it is to shift excess weight.

i would give Jake (25kg) 2 or 3, but i also would rather underfeed than overfeed.
