Hi Guys,

So were now getting Jade off all the garbage food and treats - yuck - gross stuff out there! Especially after this morning she wouldn't eat the kibble or any treats.

Off we went to the local Ryan's Pet Food store here in Burlington and got a lot of advice and quite a few sample of different things.

We bought a sample bag of Orijen Adult formula but there were not feeding instructions on the back. Could someone tell me how much for a 47lbs dog with a low to moderate exercise level? She could also stand to gain 2-3 lbs.

We gave her some for dinner tonight mixed with a small treat size canine life "muffin" - she ate it all up :thumbs up

Thanks,
Samm

The feeding instructions on my bag are:

Active Lifestyle (1hr of exercise) 275-375 g. or 2 3/4 - 3 3/4 cups
Less Active 200 -275 g or 1 3/4 - 2 1/2 cups

Oooops forgot to mention that those guidelines are for a 20-35 kg dog so you will want the low end of the guideline.

Dazy weights 69.8 lbs and eats a total of 3 cups of Orijen a day, and she is very active, plus 4 tblsp of Evo mixed in, 2 per meal. We skip the Evo every 3rd meal so she doesn't get spoiled, so she will eat plain kibble. We tried to increase the orijen as she grew and her body didn't do well with the extra food, so back down to 3 cups, even a 1/4 cup more per day threw her off.
