Since the dog food recall last spring I have tried several dog foods. I am on my second large bag of Royal Canin Labrador Mix and have been satisfied with how Reba is doing. However I had her to the vet yesterday and she has gained 6 pounds since April! I am feeding 1 cup in the morning and 2 cups in the evening. Yesterday she weighed 79.8 pounds! She probably should only weigh about 70 but has weighed about 75 pounds for at least 2 years.

It seems Reba has a larger volume of poop on Royal Canin. Perhaps because I am feeding too much?

Perhaps someone has a formula as to how many calories a dog that should weigh about 70 pounds and living a moderately active lifestyle needs to consume.
