    Default Proper amount for feeding your bully

    Tonka is 7 months almost turning 8 months in a few weeks. I switched him slowly to adult food when he turned 6 months. I feed him about 1.3-1.4 cups twice a day. He weighs 53lbs right now. I am not sure if that is over weight. Or good enough. Took to the vet for a check up and everything. They didn't say anything about him being over weight. If he is over weight, what is the proper amount to feed him now?

    The amount sounds perfect for his age

    Yep, I agree, I would continue with that amount for a while. You can tell if he is too over weight when his waist starts going away and when you feel for his ribs it's soft to the touch. If in dought you can always show us some pics and we usually can tell.

    i believe when sarah was one year old we fed her 1 cup twice a day but as she got older had to cut it back to 2/3 cup twice a day so it just depends on you bully. if they are gaining weight its time to cut back.

    Thanks for the input. I guess everything depends on how much weight he gains and how active he gets. Thanks for all the help!
