    Question FROMM serving size suggestion

    I was feeding Gator Wellness Puppy and Lucy pretty much any flavor TOTW (she has no food issues or allergy issues). Well, the last few weeks neither one of them seemed too thrilled when I put down the food bowl. Lucy wouldn't even deign to walk over to it and sniff it. She would just sit there and look at me like, blech, really? And Gator would look at it and walk away. They would both eventually eat it but they were NOT happy about it.

    Anyway, after looking around here I found a cute little dog boutique that carries Fromm so I got the pork chop and applesauce and the beef frittata. I put out the beef and you would have thought I hadn't fed them in a month! They both gobbled it up and have been for a week. (no, I don't work for or sell Fromm lol)

    After reading the bag, for the life of me I can't figure out how much Gator needs. He is almost 7 months and weighs approx 45 lbs. maybe a bit more as it has been a couple of week since he was weighed. I have been giving him about 1.5 cups per feeding. The bag said "more if a puppy". Also, Lucy the basset needs to lose a few lbs so what should I give her? She weighs 63lbs and needs to be more in the mid to high 50's.

    Any thoughts?

    I think 1.5 cups twice a day for pup, 3/4 c twice a day for Lucy. Once puppy gets to be a year old you should start cutting back some, but only if you start to see weight gain. Also give Lucy some frozen green beans or Vegas stew (1/2 to 1 cup) to help fill her up. Then you could even do 1/2 c twice a day and the weight should fall off of her

    Thank you, thank you! That is what I am feeding Gator right now but for Lucy I am still feeding too much. I will search for the Vegas stew and see what is in it. I have been giving them green beans so that is good . They love them!

    Well I do 2 scoops for both my boys 1 time a day which means nothing really cuz I never knew how much a scoop was actually. Turns out it is somewhere between 3 and 4 cups for them a day. Cutty is around 55 pounds and Mugs is around 25 and they actually have lost weight with this amount. Or Cutty has, he is the only one with weight to lose. Telling you fromm has some kind of crack in it cuz my boys have never loved a food so much and they have always LOVED their foods. lol

    My question @desertskybulldogs is would the amount of food be the same regardless of if it is grain free or not but still fromm?

    For the Pork & applesauce (not grain free) and the Beef Frittata(grain free), The "guidelines" on the bags are different for the amount you give them.

    I thought I was probably doing ok with Gator, but Lucy needs to drop some lbs and I just was not sure how to go about that. My vet wasn't very specific! lol

    I think I am going to try dropping her serving size to 1/2 c. or so and the stew and see how that goes for a few weeks. She is getting older and I just want her to be healthy . All that weight is not good on her basset back.
