    DefaultProPlan for 10 month Lab

    Hello Everybody,
    Thats my first post here, YEEPEE!!
    We have a wonderful 10 month old black male Lab. From day-1 he is eating ProPlan Large Breed Puppy dry food.
    We tried feeding according to what it says on the package but he was becoming fat. Currently we are giving him 0.9lbs each day (twice a day, 0.45lbs each time). This is much lower than the recommendation. Currently he weights 81lbs (he is NOT fat AT ALL, his father is very big, over 90lbs).
    If you feed ProPlan, please share the quantaties.
    Thanks a lot,
    Evgeny

    I do not feed ProPlan, but several others do.

    If you or your vet thinks the dog is overweight, our vet told us to just cut back on the feed 25% for a couple months and re-assess.

    Regarding the guidance on the feed bags themselves. Need to remeber that the companies are in the business of selling feed. They are not likely to guide underweight.

    I don't feed Large Breed food for starters. Labs are not a large breed.

    Okay, having said that, my adult males get 3 cups of ProPlan regular Chicken (not the shreds) per day. When I was showing them they got 3½-4 cups but now I keep them leaner.

    Great Danes, German Shepherd Dogs, Newfoundlands. Labs are considered medium sized dogs.

    I have no idea how much a cup weighs, sorry.

    Great Danes and Newfoundlands are giant breeds according to ProPlan terminology
    German Shepherd Dogs aren't any bigger (considering the weight) than labs. They are the same category breed

    1 cup (8oz/250ml) of ProPlan Selects Chicken weighs 112g, Beef/Turkey 117g and Salmon 106g.

    1 cup of ProPlan Large Breed Puppy weighs 106g.

    If you look on the ProPlan website under Daily Feeding Instructions for each type of food, it will tell you what 1 cup of that food weighs.

    Except she's feeding her adult dogs 4 cups, not a puppy. The kcals/cup differ from adult to puppy.
