I am feeding boxers.
One 65lb female...very active. Heavily muscled
One 70lb female, in good weight not quite as active.
One 70lb male, active but overweight. Thinks he is starving constantly. Has a poop eating problem. Seems to have acid reflux? (acts just like I do)
I want to try to estimate how much we would go thru to compare pricing. The canned food would be low in carbs, which would help the boy loose weight, and maybe help with the constant hunger. When I worked in a pet shop I was 'trainedt' that the manufacturers recommendation was high as they were trying to sell product.
Just compare calories of what you are feeding now to calories of what you want to switch to.
I feed my 70 lb Ridgeback 2 1/2 cups of Pinnacle Peak every day. Per the bag, it's 500 kcal per cup. She's getting 1250 kcal per day.
If I wanted to switch her to, say... Before Grain 96% Chicken canned food, I'd need to cover the same amount of calories. According to the website, a 13 oz can is 374 kcal. I'd have to feed her about 3 1/3 cans a day to meet her current calorie requirements.
