Baxter is 5 months old and, according to the company that manufacturers his food (Nurto), he's supposed to get 3 1/3 cups a day. I feed him twice a day so I end up dividing it up so that he gets about 3 1/2 cups a day. He woofs down his food in a few minutes! The other 2 Bassets I've had were slow eaters and would sometimes leave some over. Not Baxter! :lol: He'll actually be 6 months old the 16th of this month so I guess it's ok to give him a little more. I also give him 2 puppy biscuits per day. I know he's always hungry, but I don't want him to get overweight.
