my dog only eats 2 cups of his food a day. sometimes he doesnt eat lunch and just eats dinner. hes 90 pounds and is definitely not under weight. hes active and loves exercise. could there be something wrong with him or do some dogs just not eat a lot?

some dogs just don't eat a whole lot. If you're concerned however, get him checked over by a vet.

Shasta is 75lbs, in good physical condition and only eats about 1.5 cups a day. She does get some treats throughout the days but otherwise, that's it. She's perfectly healthy. Just not a big foodie. She was at 4 cups a day and just didn't eat it all despite being active so we dropped it down to something that she's okay with.

My 3 year old dog does fine on 2 cups of kibble a day.

If your dog eats what's sufficient, that's OK.

With a medium sized dog bloat is more of a concern than underfeeding the dog.
