I switched Merphy from Innova to Innova EVO. I have continuted to give him about 1/4 - 1/2 cup in the morning, and a 1/4 cup at night mixed with 1/4 cup of raw carrots or other veggies. The bag says to give him 3/4-1 cup per day. But, he keeps moping around, licking the empty bowls, like he's still hungry.
But then, if I put more Innova in his bowl, he ignores for a few minutes, unless I put the carrots in it.
He really needs to lose a couple more pounds, but I am worried that he is not getting enough. We are walking alot, so I want to make sure that he is getting enough nutrients to support his activity level.
Do you think he's getting enough or should I give him more Innova EVO or veggies?
Well sounds like he might just want more carrots. Can you put more on the food to start with or maybe when he is done and acts like he wants some more just give him the carrots.
You are just about feeding him the recommended amount. You also have to remember that it is only a guide line not all dogs need that much and some may need more. If he needs to lose weight then I wouldn't give him anymore dry. Just some more veggies for snack if he seems hungry. Green beans are suppost to be good for weight lose. Just a thought.
Good luck. Sounds like he is doing good on the dry side though. You could maybe give him some veggies in between feedings too that might help. They tell people when they are dieting they should eat like three meals and then have like two snakes in between. Then your not so hungry and can eat less per serving. Just a thought.
