How much of homemade food to feed small dog?
I have a 11/12 YO Dachshund who has been breaking out with bumps. The vet said it could either be food or environment allergies. I have tried different high quality dry dog foods and she is fine for awhile then breaks out again. Can't find the environment allergy, if that is it, because I live way out in the country on 2.5 acres. Just too difficult to pin point what it could be.
I am thinking of making my own food from cooked chicken, fresh veggies like carrots, peas and sweet potatoes and brown rice. I don't know how much to give her. I give her around 1/3 cup dry both morning and night now. She is a little overweight because she is not an active dog and was getting dog treats, which I have stopped.
So how much of homemade food do you feed a 15/17 lbs. dog that should be 11/12 lbs.?
BTW I am just interested in amounts, not a discussion of all the kinds of dog foods and diets out there and what is good or bad about each. As in, Raw vs commercial.
