Can anyone with a scale run a test for me next time they feed their dogs. I know it's no where near exact, but I'm just looking for a rough idea since I don't have a scale here.
If you don't know, I'm getting Weda's food free from the butcher of a main grocery store. The problem with that is that it's no longer exact. I don't get weights, I don't get a set amount. I usually get around 3-4 lbs from him a night (not all used), but when I measure it out, I don't know what amounts I'm putting down. Weda is very good about only taking in the amount of food that she needs. I know that I'm putting a little more than 2lbs, maybe close to 3lbs, down with each feeding, but by my estimation, she's only taking in 1.5lbs max.
What I'm looking for is someone who can possibly do a quick test of the weight for some ground meat (beef,bone,small amount of pork) and some cottage cheese. The cottage cheese is only 2 heaping tablespoons. The cubic measurement of the mix is around 1-1/2 cups of food (the amount she takes in).
I know it's not going to be exact, I just want to see if my estimations are correct and that she is properly regulating herself.
