Guest rachel2025 Posted September 10, 2016 Share Posted September 10, 2016 When we adopted Heart in June, she was eating Purina One Lamb and Rice, but having soft stools and gnawing on her feetsies at night. Our vet suggested a couple of other brands, and after two months of experimentation, we have landed on Zignature Lamb kibble. This is a pretty high-calorie food, and suggests much smaller servings than anything we've used before. I did the math to match calorie count of her last food, and am feeding her more than is recommended. The problem is that she seems to be getting a little ribby to me. I took her to get weighed a couple of weeks ago and she'd dropped a couple pounds. She was at 58.5 from 61. Has anybody had this experience with a higher protein food? Her poops are pretty magnificent on the new food, the paw-chewing is down, and her coat is softer, but I certainly don't want to starve my baby girl!! Should I try feeding her even more? Bag recommends 2 2/3 - 2 4/5 cups for 60-80lb dogs and I am already feeding 3.25 cups (total, over three feedings -- the lady likes breakfast, lunch and dinner). Thank you! rachel p.s.
