|I have a 3 month old huskey and I was advised to feed her two to three times a day. And I feed her about 2.5 cups of food a day, usually a mix of dry and wet food. She has a sensitive stomach so she is eating prescription wet and dry food. Vet said to go with either one that I would consistently feed her. She doesn't get any treats right now, but gets the occasional table scrap if I'm feeling generous.
I honestly think she could and would eat more. She eats everything in her bowl in under a minute. Although I said the vet suggested we get her on a schedule of 2-3 times a day, I'm feeding her 4 times a day. Since she is so ravenous and has such a sensitive stomach, I wanted to give her smaller portions and give her a chance to digest the food.
Anyway, she is very hungry even after she finishes her dish, she still wants more. And since she can finish it in under a minute, she is always done before I finish my meal. Which leaves her begging for food at the table. My question is, how much can I feed her without it being too much? I don't want to over feed her, but I worry that she is growing and I don't want to deny her food if she is really hungry. When I put my meal/leftovers/dishes away, she is able to calm down and no longer beg for food. So I'm not sure if she is getting enough or not. Thoughts from anyone who has had a siberian huskey puppy?
