Q. How much food should my 33 lb, 1 year old Beagle Lab Mix be eating? She get 1.5 cups a day but still seems so hungry

Answered By

A. It varies so much depending upon the food you feed. Have a look on the side or back of the packet and it will give you a feeding guide. If not check the manufacturer website. You should also ensure that she has been wormed within the last month with a good quality worm product from your vet as the over the counter ones are not as effective. If she still seems hungry you can try a satiety diet, royal canin do a very good one.
