Q. We rescued an English bulldog mix he wiegh around 90lbs. The bag says 2 cups per day of dry food.how much would I give him if I gave him meat and veg

Answered By

A. I would stick to the feeding instructions on the bag and limit meat and vegetables to an occasional snack, The commercial food is nutritionally balanced, whereas meat and vegetables will not give him all the nutrients he needs. Adjust the two-cup regimen if he is getting fat or appears too thin.
