I have a one year old (18 July) female Bassett I got her when she was 8 weeks. She currently weighs 26kg. I recently rescued (5 weeks ago)another Bassett Female she's 4 years old and weighs 26.5kg. They each have 4 weetabix and milk for breakfast (7.30am). I was also feeding them lunch consisting of 1 tin each of dog food + mixer. Dinner followed consisting of a tin each of dog food with mixer. Once a week I make them beef stew with vegetables this does for 2 meals. I also treat them to Pilchards once a week. When I first got the pup I tried her on dried food (Purina) but gave this up a couple of months ago as she just wasn't eating. My mother who had a Bassett Hound years ago has advised me that 3 meals a day is too much so I've cut them down to breakfast and dinner. Is this right? On the side of the dog food tin it advises for a dog weighing between 25 - 30kg 3 tins a day. The older dog is definately a little overweight. AM I doing right????? I don't want to starve them.
