Default how much should a 18th month old lab eat

Hello
I feed my lab one and a half mugs of dog granules at breakfast and at tea time, she seems to be getting rather chunky

Do you think I should cut out the half mug to streamline her, she fhas been weight by the vet recently and is the correct weight for her years or does Lab's start to fill out when they get to Adult which is now

advice please many thanks

What food are you feeding?

Can you easily feel her ribs when you gently run your hand over them?

Default how much food for a 18 month lab

Hello

when i run my hands along her sides, i can feel a bit of fat but not a lot, wonder if I am overfeeding her but she is very hyper and energenic

on Wednesday I fhave ordered a adult bag of food from (Pets Corner)in Horsham to come, they recommend that put her on that now that she is 18 months it is called MORE and with no artifical aditives etc

thanks for your reply

My 18 month old 100% working lines lab is on 240gms per day not sure what that is in mugs, if you can feel a bit of fat then I would say you are over feeding

When I choose a dog food I want to see meat/fish as the 1st ingredient, have a look at Simpson's sensitive range, it's Hypoallergenic, free from wheat-gluten, dairy and soya and contains no artificial colours, flavours, added salt or sugar and is grain free it's cheaper than MORE and in my opinion a better food, if you've already bought the MORE then ignore all that :lol:
