    My guys eat Taste of the Wild. My Henry is 1 1/2 years and weighs 45 pounds. He gets 1 cup twice a day. Clyde is EB mix. Weights 47 pounds and is 8 months. He gets 1 1/2 cup twice a day. Rootbeer is a lab and weighs 72 pounds and is 7. He gets 1 1/2 cup twice a day. When he was on a diet he got 1 cup twice a day. They get a tablespoon of yogurt and a tablespoon of coconut oil with their evening meal. They also get green beans and a fruit snack a few times a day for being good boys. With the added calories of the yogurt and coconut oil they get a little less than the recomended feeding. It works out to be about right. I looked at the diamond recomended food guide and it says 40-60 pounds is 2 1/2-3 1/4. I always assume they are for active dogs and mine a lazy lazy so I use the lowest number and cut off a smidge. How much does your fella weigh? Is he on a diet? Does he gets lots of treats?

    Same as most others. A cup twice a day plus a 2 or 3 home baked dog treats and a little raw goat milk. I feed Victor grain free salmon & sweet potato and add a dab of coconut oil, turmeric, vit e and fermented fish stock during 1 feeding.

    I just got home , no he's not on a diet and in sure everyone gives him something when I'm not watching

    He's lazy and crazy I like the way he looks -- but worried because everyone else feeds so much more!!
