He eats 3 cups of Orijen lbp, 1 cup 3x a day, and weighs roughly 60lbs at 7 months.

The bag says 3.75-4.5 cups. He can't handle anything over 3.25 cups. Is he getting enough nutrition?

I know I have asked before, and we tried late night feedings, but that didn't work. I think he looks good, but just want to make sure I'm not being jaded since I see him everyday.





Thanks in advance

He does look just a bit thin in the first photo, but not bad. You can feed satin balls, there's a recipe on this forum or google it. They're good for weight gain, great for coat and skin, dogs love them.

Michael, I always worry about that too. They grow taller/longer so fast but don't start to fill out until later so they look really thin compared to other dogs. I was at the vet yesterday and reviewed the weight chart and your dog looks good. They said you should be able to feel his ribs but not see them. Hope that helps.
