    I have a oneyear old Jack Russell, and just recently i changed his food to Oscar brand which contains no additives. With this they advised me he should be eating about 100g of food a day so they give you a server which contains 50g to feed him twice a day.

    I never knew how much i should feed him but now the scoop makes it clear. Im worried as he doesnt eat one scoop let alone two. And he never ate that much before (so its not the food)

    should i be worried? he has a bone he chews on but its not enough to fill him up. he is my baby and i dont want to lose him. he is quite lean but i thought thats cuz he is always hyer and jumping about. etc.

    can someone help

    Aslong as he isnt hugely underweight, i wouldnt worry too much.

    A lot of youngsters will be a bit ribby and lean. If you are worried, you could try adding some naturediet to his dry mix to make it more palatable, or some tripe which is meant to be very good at putting weight on, and 99% of dogs ADORE it.

    All dogs are different as long as he is healthy I wouldn't worry to much
