    Default How much to feed

    Okay, so I have a few things I want to post in this one subject & get some feedback on.
    So hopefully I don't ramble on.



    Murphy will be a year next month.
    He gets fed 3 times a day. A half a cup-morning,lunch, and dinner.
    Coconut, yogurt and something else usually all split up throughout the 3 meals.
    So a cup and a half evwry day.
    Feeding him chicken rice and veggie-which we are currently in the transition of completely changing his food, to a grain free chicken free etc. it's comparable to blue buffalo I guess.
    So the grain free food is 4% less in protein and is a different shape than the chicken and rice food- so I need to weigh it in ounces to see what the actual difference is in weight.
    So once I get that weighed-I'll do it on lunch I will post it.
    He's 43.5 pounds.

    Next thing is I take an hour for lunch to come play and potty him.
    He's almost a year, does he still need that??
    I go to work at 6:30 am and come home for lunch for an hour around noon. Then Blake gets home around 3.
    My schedule isn't a Monday through Friday thing either
    It's I work 2 then have 3 off
    Work 3 then have two off type of deal.

    I'll post after lunch too.

    Can I have your schedule??

    He should be fine with 2 cups of food a day at his age, as long as you can not see his ribs, he is getting enough food.

    As for mid day break... totally up to you. Our boys are left at 7 AM by the boyfriend and I usually get home around 4, but we have a pet sitter come 3x a week for a 45 min play/potty break. They boys do not necessarily NEED it, but I want them to have it

    Okay awesome!!!
    He definitely has a waist so he's good there.
    Going to keep his food at 1 1/2 cups a day since he gets all the other goodies in there
    I was actually going to tag you in this because you had replied on another one of my posts and gave me good advice
    So yay it worked out haha

    Ditto to what Christine said, that schedule you have is pretty darn good, @Kimberlie! Murphy's lucky that he gets to see you during the middle of the day like that. I only recently hired a pet sitter to come at 12noon for the boys; it's a 15min "potty break" 5 days/week. I leave home around 7am and don't return til 5pm so felt this was a nice little break for them.

    I probably started feeding mine 1 cup kibble twice a day when they turned 1 yo too. Murphy's a cutie!
