Greetings good people. I am happy to have found this forum.

So I just adopted a 4 year old female. She is about 58 pounds and I am wondering how much to feed her. The SPCA said they were feeding her 1 1/2 cups of dry food in the morning and in the evening. This seems like not enough. She always seems hungry after I feed her.

Any thoughts? thanks so much.

I feed RAW and encourage everyone to do their research on feeding RAW and then make the switch; however, that is easier said than done. Make sure you feed a quality food such as

NON GRAIN FOODS
* Orijen
* Taste of the Wild
* Blue Buffalo Wilderness

There are others and you should check out this thread with the review on dog foods and grades on the majority of brands out there.

It also depends on the activity level. One of mine is fairly sedate, and she gets 3/4 of a cup twice a day (so 1.5 cups total). A more active dog would rapidly become lean on such a diet.
