    Pitlove,
    Thanks for the response, and sorry for my late reply. Leo is 11 months old. His weight has been steady around 58-60lb since he was around 8 months old. He’s the true definition of a mutt – we did a DNA test and it came back around 25% pit, and 12% each of cattle dog, husky, rottweiler, and the remainder was too mixed to define. I thought this would be his adult weight since it hasn’t changed for some time. But I’m hearing you say that he should really be fed as a puppy until at least 18 months.

    What percentage of his weight should I be feeding? Closer to 8-10% of his weight, rather than 2-3%? He’s been on the diet for 3-4 weeks now. I’ve added an additional 6-8oz muscle meat or RMB per day and I’m also adding in extra egg and/or coconut oil to up his calories. His weight looks really appropriate to me right now, but I still want to be armed with some actual numbers what I should be shooting for with his meals each day so I don’t feel like I’m just making it up as I go.

    Thanks for your responses!
