Default How Much Do You Feed Your Dog?

I know another thread was made before similar to this, but cannot find it.

Ever since Jackson got sick one night in late July and stayed in the hospital overnight, he suddenly became a good eater. lol. This was a dog that would let dry food sit for days, was just very picky. So now he has a good appetite. He used to only eat 1/2 cup per day of Acana but that was also when he was getting a lot more treats (higher in fat too) and wet food also higher in fat.

Anyways, since then, he's been eating 3/4 cup per day. I can't imagine giving him any less, as he doesn't seem satisfied until he eats about that much, and he's not a scarfer still, plus he runs a lot and is active in general. I just wanna make sure I am not over-feeding and don't want him to start gaining. For reference, Acana bag suggest for a less active dog (1 hour exercise or less) between 12-22lbs to be fed 1-1 1/4 cup of food (and I know the bags are often way over estimates).


What Food?: Acana Prairie and Grasslands and Pacifica
Kcal/cup: 430 kcal/cup
How Much Per Day?: 3/4 cup
Weight of Dog: 16lbs
Age of Dog: 3yrs old
Activity: Pretty active - generally at minimum 1hr of exercise per day
