I am awful at converting numbers into cups. I have changed the dogs food to the grain free Wilderness Blue Buffalo. I just can't figure out how much of a cup these numbers convert to. I used a dog food calculator factoring in activity level, weight, and calories.

0.42 cups- Faye (this is what I THINK is right 1/8 twice a day)

0.71 cups- Lacey (3/4 cup a day that I would split into two meals)

.34 cups- Honey

.57- Osha (1/4 twice a day)

Does what I worked out look right? I am still stumped on how much to feed "Honey" I know it will be a very small amount.

0.42 cups- Faye - This would be around 3/8 cup (1/4 cup + 1/8 cup) per day

0.71 cups- Lacey (3/4 cup a day that I would split into two meals) - that's about right

.34 cups- Honey - this would be 1/3 cup per day, split that into the 2 meals

.57- Osha (1/4 twice a day) - that's about right

This looks like a good starting point. After feeding for a few weeks take note of their body condition and increase or decrease the amounts as needed to make sure they're at a good weight.
