    Default How much??

    So, if you have read my other thread I posted elsewhere I was told that I need to fatten Matilda up a bit. So, my question is, she already gets 2 pounds a day, how much more should I feed her. Should I move her back up to 2 times a day??

    Age and weight is important. My Usko is 15 months old active male, weights about 56lbs and gets a bit more than a pound a day devided in two meals, so more than two pounds sounds a bit much. If she really needs to fatten up, maybe adding some fat, not increasing the amount would do it.

    I like your answer. I do know of a bully vet but he lives in Shawnee. I take her there for certain things. What would be good for fat??

    She is 14 months and 47 pounds last check. She is also very active.

    I looked at the pictures you posted and i think she looks perfect, but then again I'm not a judge and I like them on the leaner side.
    We get meaty fats from our stores. It's about 90% fat and it can be lambs, chickens, porks or just about any animals fatty tissue with just a little bit meat. If you don't already give any oils, salmon or something like that good be added to the feed.

    the basic formula is between 3% and 4% of your dogs body weight give or take. It depends on how he looks. My 10 month old weights 46 pounds and gets 1.85lbs a day. He looks lean and strong.

    His diet mostly consist of chicken. I buy whole chikens for $0.69 a pound and chop them up un large pieces. I prepare once a week his meal plan and consist of 0.10lb liver, 0.2lb necks ( wich i buy for $0.40/lb) 0.6 chicken, fed twice a day. Two to three times a week I add a whole egg and when i get red meat for below $1.80 a pound I substitute the liver and chicken and complement with necks. Also I supplement with salmon oil daily.

    Matilda is a very active bully. She always seems hungry. I give her 2 pounds of whatever is on her menue for the day. Honestly I still feed her twice a day. 1 pound morning with her suppliments and cottage cheese every other morning and then 1 pound in the evening with her veggies.
