Monty was getting 3/4 cup (AvoDerm revolving menu) twice a day as he needed to lose some weight. He has lost 4 lbs so now I have upped it just a bit (still not a cup) and will see how he does at the next weigh in. I also give him Kefir, coconut oil and either veggies or a tbsp non-fat cottage cheese as a topper. He was 70 lbs, now 66 lb. It is always better to feed twice a day, less chance of bloat.
