So confused with food/eating quantities
I need your advice and suggestions.. Zoe has had a rough last few months - for those who remember she had a nasty abscess back in March and had surgery and lost almost 10 pounds. We are slowly gaining some back and I am trying to settle her feeding - food type and quantity. She is turning one on the 23rd - next week! And the is at 63 pounds.
She ate purina puppy kibble until she was 7 months and we switched to purina adult after that because she seemed to be hungry constantly (I wish I had kept her in the puppy kibble and maybe just upped her quantity or introduced something else that was my mistake then but it seemed to stabilize her hunger until she got sick and had the surgery.
For about a month now, we have made the transition back to purina one puppy but the package says 3 1/4 cups a day and it's the same issue as before when she was on puppy.. she does not seem happy with what she is eating.. with the adult kibble she was getting 5 cups (2.5 each feeding, plus treats and occasional special bone).
I've been thinking maybe I could mix puppy with adult? maybe do 1 cup each at each feeding for a total of 4 cups a day? I'm so lost on this food thing, I need advice!
I'm also looking at getting the purina one for large breeds, maybe that would help?
