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.
Thanks for the info! we have been trying grain free to see if it helps maizys itching currently i havent noticed any difference so if after the next bag it i
still dont see a difference i am going to try the grain inclusive which are lower in protein!!

Sweetness is about 7.5 pounds and she gets less than 1/4 c. twice a day. Since Tessa is a mix, she's closer to 10 pounds and gets 1/4 c twice a day. Both maintain their weight nicely on those amounts, and we don't do a lot of treats - 2 or 3 very low calorie treats per day only.

this is a great question! I feed our babies Blue Buffalo life protection formula. Roxy, our tiny Yorkie, weighs around 4.5 pds and I give her about a 1/3 cup per day, and I have since added a couple of teaspoons of the wet blue buffalo homestyle food, for Toy breeds. She is the pickiest eater, and wouldnt eat anything. Now she loves it! However, I am wondering If i am giving her too much?? She seems a little heavier?

Max, our Maltese pup gets about a 1/4 of a cup of the dry food, mixed with the wet blue buffalo homestyle food for puppies.

1/3 cup is what my vet told me to feed my 8 pound Yorkie, and 1/4 for my 6 pound Malt.if yours are really active and not gaining a lot of weight, then I would think that's what they should be eating.

Thanks! I will just keep feeding them that amount and see how they do. It really doesnt seem that much, but they have such tiny tummies.
