Re: Ok place to start?
Sounds like a lot. One thing to remember is that the better foods are more calorie dense, especially the grain-free dry foods. Are you trying to get her to lose weight or maintain? If it's maintain, I would give the full can of wet per day and cut the dry back to 1/8 cup (2 Tbsp). If you're trying to get her to lose, I'd only give a tablespoon of dry every couple days as a treat and just feed the one can of wet per day. See how she does, if she's losing too fast (more than 1/2 lb per month) then bump up the dry a bit. For reference...1/8 cup of a quality dry food is about equivalent to 1/3 can of a quality wet food in calories. My cats each get 2/3 of a can of wet and 1/8 cup of dry per day. They all maintain their weight very consistently and my male is almost 19 lbs (and not fat).
