    DefaultFood Amount

    Polly eats Purina Beneful Healthy Radiance, and we've had no troubles at all with it. Lately, though, she seems more hungry than usual. We're still on a feeding schedule -- two cups, twice a day, which is the max for a dog her weight (75 lbs), according to the bag. She's always been a skinny dog, and I'd hate to fatten her up too much. She'll be two in February -- is it time to end the feeding schedule and let her eat what she wants? How do I go about doing that? Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Most Labs are gluttons and you'll need to monitor and gauge their food intake yourself rather than let them decide.

    For more hints, see my post in https://www.justlabradors.com/forum/i...tml#msg1167255
