I’m transitioning my 2-yr-old, 30-pound doodle to Zignature from Wellness Core and I’m a little confused since, until now, I’ve been feeding him slightly less than 2 cups per day and according to the Zignature label, they suggest 3 cups per day (if I’m reading correctly). Should I just keep going as is? Or when Zignature references “Serving Size” do they mean total cups PER DAY?
I am looking at the Zignature Catfish bag right now. I see 20-30 (lbs) 1 and 1/4 cups to 1 and 1/2 cups per day.
I use much less than the recommended amounts, but then I only use the kibble as a base, I add a bite of something and a little water. Plus a snack midday.
Divide the amount in half for two
meals per day.
Should be feeding the same exact amount as before. Wellness core original is a little under 2 cups a day and 421 cals per cup and zignature essentials formula is a little under 2 cups and 422 cals per cup.
I feed Zignature and agree w/both anon & haley, see the same recommended range amount for a 30 lb dog on my bag.
I would also encourage you to feed for ideal body condition scoring (and, if still a puppy, slow, controlled growth) in your individual dog, considering all the calories you provide (treats, supplements included). If you are not practiced in evaluating this (9 pt or 5 pt scale), ask your vet to assess/score your dog.
Don’t just go by food manufacturer general recommendations on a bag.
