Default I don't know how much to feed. =P

I feel like a loser. lol.

Not entirely sure how much food to feed Happy. She weighs 44lbs, the vet would like to see her down to around 40lbs. The woman fostering her said she fed her 1c-1.5c a day (of Natural Balance Synergy), PLUS meat and vegetables. And the way she acts in the kitchen/around food, and the fact that the other dog that lived there was a chunky monkey too... I think she got lots of treats and table scraps too. So, she ate a lot.

I have a little bit of the Synergy left and as of yesterday she's being transitioned onto Fromm Gold Senior. The bag says she should get 2.5c a day. Umm... that's how much Juno gets a day and she weighs more + is more active + has a faster metabolism. So I am pretty sure Happy would really be a blimp on that amount of food.

So I don't really know where to start! Right now I've been giving her 1.5c a day, split into two meals. I don't know if this is okay. I want her to lose weight, but not because I'm starving her. =P

So. Anyone have dogs of a similar size, or any suggestions on an amount I should start with?
