Our Baxter needs to lose 10 lbs per the Vet. My husband and I disagree strongly on how much to feed him. Can you advise us, please. He is currently getting 3/4 cup of diet food with green beans and 1/4 cup pumpkin at each meal but is obviously hungry. I want to give more dry food. Am I wrong? He is a 7 year old Aussie rescue who has just started a 30 minute walk per day.

If you were just feeding diet dog food, depending on the brand, you would be able to feed more. How much green beans are you feeding? Taking into account the pumpkin and the green beans you are probably about right on the calorie consumption. Weight loss without some feelings of hunger is almost impossible. OM by Purina calls for 2 5/8 to 3 cups per day for a dog your size to loss weight, but that is without green beans and pumpkin.
