    I just found out that the prescription food we are feeding has REALLY low protein and fat counts so I WILL have to feed them more at each feeding. The Protein is only 14% and the fat is only 10%!! SO I will have to feed them a lot more for them to get their normal calorie intake.

    The amount of fat and protein has nothing to do with calories. Not sure what you are getting at KK4389...do you want a food with more calories or more protein and/or fat. All because the food has more protein and fat does not mean it will always have more calories/cup.

    How come they're on prescription food? Those protein and fat levels are really low. Especially the protein. :-\ :-\

    They have allergies and this is first step in ruling things out.

    Hmm... not sure on how to "reset" your labs' clocks (heehee... they're gorgeous by the way!) but I do feed Henry twice a day and I do vary the time that he eats. He'll get his breakfast anywhere between 7:30 and 9:30am and his dinner anywhere between 5:30 and 7:30pm. Every day is different, so he doesn't quite know when it's coming.

    I do agree that they do pick up on your cues though. eg. feeding as soon as you wake up or as soon as you get home from work etc.

    Maybe try a little snack before bed?
