    2 cup seems too little to me, hence the concern. He's growing like a weed. I think 3 cups would be more filling but his poop is solid, not so solid when he has treats or Bully sticks lol

    What an adorable little man!

    He should be getting more than that.... since RC is not a high quality food, he is getting hungry quicker... give 3 cups 3x a day and then plan to switch as you stated when the bag is almost gone. Do a slow switch of about 7-8 days and once on Fromm or Acana here is a good guide for feeding

    8 weeks 1/2 cup 3 times a day
    12 weeks 2/3 to 3/4 cup 3 times a day
    4 & 5 months 3/4 cup 3 times a day
    6 months to 1 year 1.25 to 1.5 cups twice a day

    He's adorable! I agree increase his food to 1 cup 3xs per day. If that's too much decrease gradually.

    I'll heed the advice! We have other food too but I don't want to switch him up. We have supreme source which seems mostly fruit and vegetable but chicken also. And we have Purina pro plan all stages
    My gf got the first as a sample, and the pro plan was what breeder fed so we started him on that before switching to the brewers ingredients lol.
    What shall I do!?

    Chewy is AWESOME!! I guarantee they will just have u donate the left over food and help guide you to find s better food. Generally go with grain free for eb's. My girl has a chicken and all potatoe allergy. I've been feeding both of mine Taste of the Wild - pine forest edition for at least 6 months. It's venison and lamb. But am not switching bc they both started getting hotspots. And my girl NEVER gets hot spots. Just got Zignature Salmon. Zignature is grain, chicken and potato free. Transitioning them over now- do we'll see.

    Sometimes you'll find the right food - for now, and still have to end up changing.

    Update, Chewy is refunding and recommended Wellness. I mentioned Fromm, whoever the agent was said they have a friend who has an EB and he's on Fromm and loves it.

    I think Fromm, based on the links/all of your personal experiences, seems like a safe and successful choice. I'll be purchasing today and making the swap gradually. Thanks all!

    Let me ask, to those saying 3 cups a day, does that factor in if you give him treats? We give him a kong with pb and kibble just a puppy size Kong as something to do during the day... he loves it but is it too much?
    Solid poops! Haha
