Rufus is very handsome :D I too worried about bloat. My female, Stickers, eats nice & slow. Rusty, my male, inhales his food. For that reason we feed 1 cup in the morning, 1 cup at lunch, 1 cup at dinner. With this amount he maintains his healthy weight at 53 pounds. Feeding smaller amounts more often is good. As far as the amount, I would see what his Vet says and how he looks. Searching for more feed is normal I think? I too limit activity with Rusty because of the bloat fear. Hopefully someone else will jump in and give their opinion.

I did buy on of those bowls with dividers made into it to slow Rusty down. It was plastic and irritated his mouth so now he eats out of a stoneware bowl. I don't think the divider bowl worked after he got use to it. Congratulations of your beautiful boy!
