Why are calories your only concern?

I've got my pup on Wellness Core puppy and I have no idea the calorie count!

Every single food manufacturer web page I have ever visited lists the calories per cup of the foods they offer.

Hello,

I am new to the site also and I apologize if this goes off subject of this post but I have not figured out how to begin a new post.

I have 2 gsd pups, Athena is 18 weeks and a piece eater that I can leave food for all day and Eden who is 12 weeks old and that empties her bowl within minutes of feeding. Both of my girls appear to be a healthy weight 54 pounds and 32 pounds respectively (they both came from rather large mothers). Any ideas on how to curb Eden's obsession for an empty bowl? They are currently fed separately so I do not believe this is due to a dominance issue....

I appreciate any suggestions... http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...xM_f3u022S.gif

Their stomach digests the two at different speeds. It might not sit well with them. Any reason for 1/2 and 1/2 instead of all raw or kibble?

Not confident to go all raw yet tbh
