|Amazon Basics Slow Feed Bowl|
|Bella saving her bananas for last|
Dogs weight in lbs x applicable percentage = A
A x 16 oz = B (this is the total number of ounces you feed each day)
B divided by 2 = ounces you feed at each meal (if you feed twice a day)
My Abby's ideal weight is 10 lbs. I multiply that times the percentage (10 x 6%=.6). Abby has a super high metabolism, so I use 6% for her.
Dogs tend to require more homemade food (by volume) than kibble. Sometimes up to 50% more. The best way is the “feed and watch” approach. If your dog loses weight, add more quantity; if they gain weight (less likely) cut back.
Slow Feeder Bowls: Anytime I post pictures online of my dogs eating, I always get inquiries about the bowls I use. These are slow feeder bowls that slow down gulpers. When most dogs start eating real and tasty food, they tend to eat very fast.
Any doubt they love their Mama's cooking?
