so my vet said i need too shed 4-6 pounds from beathoven....this was 2 weeks ago , like i posted , he looks like he has slimmed out....but the prob is with the portions of food daily....i'm giving him 2 1/2 cups a day of to wilderness elk....yesterday he eats 3/4 of a cup.....today he has eatin all 2 1/2 cups....my question is should i take the remaing food and put the 2 1/2 fresh daily....he has been all over the place on eating habits....i think its the heat.

you are asking of you should put the one days remainder in with the next days food?? if so, i wouldnt think so. if he feels he doesnt need that food, he wont eat it. :)

Sometimes when it's very hot , Bailey won't eat his supper (one cup) I wait 10 minutes and take it away. I feed him the same amount the next morning.

Agreed ~ when it's too hot (like when we're camping or cottaging with no AC) the dogs barely touch their food and don't miss it a bit.
