|Hello! So Ellie and I will be traveling to Iowa next Monday for 10 days. I feed Stella and Chewies pre made raw as it is the lowest calorie of the premade. Usually I look for higher calorie things but Ellie needs to lose about a pound more and we've been on a weight loss journey for a few months now. Anywho, she normally gets 2 small patties (3 ounces) per meal mixed with salmon oil and Fruitables Weight Loss Pumpkin. In the evening with her food, she gets some supplements like digestive enzymes, probiotics, diatomaceous earth, and Inflight coat supplement. But it only works out to 6 ounces of raw per day! This seems like a very small portion but it has been approved by my holistic vet and we've been n this routine for quite a bit now with no muscle wasting or anything of the sort. She also runs with me for a solid 2 miles a day, and we hike for about an hour at least once a week.
But this is all in Arizona where it's still 70 in December. I'm expecting it to get down in the 10-20 in Iowa. I have the appropriate booties and jacket for her, but I need to figure out if I should increase her feeding. How much do you increase? Is it a percentage? She will probably be just as active if not more so in Iowa with me. Thanks for the help!
