I have been using a calculator online to determine what her calorie needs are based on the weight she should be, and then feeding her that amount. Maybe she's just overly sensitive to this food...


I am on my phone, so there is no "thanks" button, but thank you to everyone for your responses!

The more I have been thinking about it, I am thinking I probably should get a blood panel done as suggested to check for hypothyroidism. I am thinking the years of her not being fed a high quality food probably has had a major impact on her health.

Purina Pro Plan has some nice weight control formulas which would help her lose weight without feeling hungry.

We had two poodles who wouldn't overeat and one poodle who was quick to benefit from any leftover food. We cut her serving to about 3/4 and added salt-free canned peas (hard to eat with just a tongue!) to prolong her meals. We also switched to baby carrots for most treats. I also practiced picking up the leftover food faster!
