Question Should I feed him more ????


Need some advice. My puppy Zeus is 6 months old now. He weighs 59 lbs. He is on Acana Grasslands and absolutely loves it. He loves to eat ....period

He gets 4 cups a day of kibble. Each cup has 423 calories. He has an average activity level with two walks a day. No excessive hiking etc . In addition he gets a couple of treats and a banana everyday. I don't want him to put on excessive weight.

He wants to eat and I am getting a lot of different websites stating he needs around 5 or 5.5 cups a day. His poop is solid...good quantity.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am attaching a couple of pictures

Judging from the pictures, he looks good with what ever you are doing.

No way to tell his body condition from these pics. You need to post some from the side with him standing.
