Hmmmm, Pipper also eats Fromm and he gets about 3/4 cup a day (split into 2 meals) with added veggies and he weighs between 12 and 13 lbs. Do you think I should cut back so he looses some weight.

I got Pipper from a lady who bred her pets (aka a BYB, I guess. I didn't know any better) She had both parents on site and they were both Maltese but thats all I know.

And no, I don't mind you asking.

I'm trying to figure this all out too, I don't want them fat, I want them healthy so I'll cut back and when Violet goes for her yearly checkup in Feb. We'll see how it goes. She loves to eat, so the vet said to fill in with veggies.

Maybe I will gradually cut back on the kibble too. I can always add more veggies. He goes crazy for the veggies.

Deb, i noticed that your feeding the grain free, that could be why Violet has gained weight. Some pups tend to gain weight with a grain free diet since it usually means higher in fat and protein.

I stopped feeding mine Kibble because it is so high in calories. I was told Sasha (13) should be getting about 170 and Lola about 200. Every time you change a formula even within the same brand you should readjust the amount you feed them.

I haven't done all grain free, but I see the difference now. I think that I was feeding too much

I just saw Lisa's post and question from earlier today... Snuggles nor Chrissy have never been on Fromm, and only on Blue Buffalo for quite some time now. I have always tried to be very conscious of the protein and calorie intake and the Longevity variety has both. However, Chrissy still has to go back on the BB Maintenance formula for a little while to help her shed some of her extra weight.
