I've thought about cutting back her food but I feel bad, 2 cups is not a lot. To me that seems border line starving :roll: , espically for a 100 lb dog But if everyone else thinks it would be ok to cut her back to maybe 1 1/2 cups, I can try it and see how she does.
Edit- I just now saw the Overweight Sticky Sorry.

I know 2 cups seems borderine abusive, but some dogs just naturally have slower metabolisms. I had a Brittany mix that was 32lbs at a good weight. In order to maintain that weight I could only feed him a 1/4cup of food a day and a few snacks.
