    DefaultWe feed our girls ProPlan salmon & rice for sensitive tummys

    On Lauras suggestion. Our girls have done beautifully on it. We feed one heaping cup in the am & a heaping cup & split a can of green beans between the two. I also give them a couple of tablespoons of canned mixed with water for flavor at nite. They are not thin nor are they fat but is this enough food for them? It seems like others feed more. Thoughts?

    The non-lab owner would ask "do they act hungry?" ... the lab owner would know labs are always hungry.

    How does the amount of kibble you're giving them compare to the feeding guidelines. Dozer gets 3 cups of food a day, as per the guidelines (and what works with his level of activity -- if he has a long run day he gets a little extra). If your cups are "heaping" they might be 1.5 at each meal, so they'd be getting about the same amount.

    Java and Moka each get only 3/4 cup in the morning and at night. At night they also split a can of green beans and they get a small spoonful of 95% meat canned food with each meal.
    So..your pups get more food than mine do...and mine are doing just fine.
    If they look good, not too thin, not too fat...then I would say the amount you're feeding them is the right amount for them.

    Two get a half of a cup of kibble and 6 baby carrots twice a day with a dallop of yogurt. Indy gets half of a cup of kibble and yams for breakfast, but only half of a cup of kibble and a dallop of yogurt for dinner (2x yams = the poo poo train). I have seniors that dont get a lot of exercise due to arthritis, etc. They also get a milk bone before bed because Indy has to have food on his stomach for his last round of pills, so if I give one, then the other two want it.... So actually I guess I'm feeding less than you and my hounds are 75, 92 and 93 pounds.

    Mom to Indy 6/12/98 to 11/16/11 (always in my heart), and Jobe 8-14-2000 to 6/24/2013 (Working TDI) English Labs, and Annie our Golden Retriever (TDI), and Kodiak (who will one day hopefully be a TDI dog if he doesn't kill me first).

    Are they active? Active dogs are going to eat more. If they're at a good weight then keep doing what you are doing.

    We play a good game of fetch 2 x a day, other than that they are couch potatoes. Our vet says they are of good weight for their sizes. Boo is more stocky (Bench kind of stocky) Rush is lean (more field built)
