So I don't wanna starve him if he's truly hungry, hence why he's been getting 3/4 cup.... but I will say we're only on our 2nd bag of Acana, he was eating other lower cal/lower fat foods from late July-early November on the 3/4 cup amount so I just hope he doesn't start gaining weight.
It seems most yorkies half his size eat between 1/2 cup - 3/4 cup per day so I dunno, just seems like I'd be starving him on 1/2 cup without high cal/high fat treats and canned foods that he used to be getting.
Only canned food he gets now is a spoonful in the AM of Weruva.
If he's a good weight then its moot
dogs need what they need.
I am just surprised in general how much people feed their dogs. Mine eat like nothing (and they are thin but not skinny... as I pointed out in the weight thread I like my dogs to have a bit of reserves..)
I think I shall pet them all and tell them I appreciate their frugal digestive systems
