    DefaultAnyone Feed Nutro Natrual Choice?

    My foster came with a bag of Nutra Natural Choice Adult Large Breed food.

    how much do you feed?
    the chart says 4.1/4 to 5.1/4 cups for dogs 66-90 pounds. He is 91 pounds. This just seems like alot of food (5 cups)?

    Kaylie and Tris get nutro sensitive stomach - 1 1/2 cups morning and evening, 3 cups total.

    Tris is around 85 - 90 lbs, Kaylie is 70-75

    Not sure if the SS formula is close to natural choice, but there's a benchmark anyway.

    It probably seems like a lot in comparison to Orijen, which is much more nutrient dense at 483 kcal/cup. The Nutro is somewhere in the 335 kcal/cup range I think ??? so that's probably where the difference is.

    I talked to my vet about this exact subject, she said the bag is crazy! She said never more than 3 cups, Crockett seems full and always stays lean.

    Most bags suggest feeding more than is good -- probably because they're in the business of trying to sell more dig food rather than greater health.

    Diamond & related products like Kirkland comes closest to desirable amounts and even they are "generous."

    With a food that gives 362 kcals/cup, they recommend about 4 cups (more or less) for a 90 lb. dog.

    A lot depends on the current condition (ideal, overweight, too thin) and the amount of daily exercise.

    For example, my Puff with a thin, trim build gets an abundance of daily exercise and, at 63 lbs, gets a total of 2 3/4 c/day of 362 kcal/c food. Diamond recommends 3 1/2.

    Bailey eats Nutro and we feed him about 4 cups per day (2 in am and 2 in pm). He only weighs 67 lbs.

    thanks everyone
    I certainly will not feed him 5 cups. I will try to do 3.5 cups (per day) and see how it goes.
