So our vet recced Purina One once my girls get over the stomach bug but I've looked over the ingredients and the only thing I liked about it was the Protein percentage. Right now I'm thinking about by Nature, Innova, and Merrick's Wilderness, so my question is do you feed less on Premium foods? Because my Lhasa could subsist on air and the Malt needs to gain weight.

Generally speaking, yes, you feed less food on the higher quality foods. One premium food does not necessarily compare to another premium food, though, as they can differ in calories...so you may need to look closely at that.

I feed Acana Pacifica & Acana Grasslands (rotate every 4-6 months) and each of my Maltese get 1/4 cup twice per day, so 1/2 cup each total per day. If they were on a lesser quality food I'm not sure how much they would get...probably double that?
