Just started my cat on Wellness canned, and not sure about the appropriate amount to give her. When she was on dry food(Innova lite) her recommended daily serving was about a 1/2 cup, which I split 3 times a day. This was for her target weight, which she has never achieved. I've been doing a lot of research and wet foods seem to be the way to go for weight loss. High in protein and low carbohydrate fillers.

The guidelines on the can are one can daily for an 8-10 lb cat. She currently weighs about 17lbs, although she is a big boned cat she should be at about 13lbs. That serving recommendation just seems like a lot. I just want to make sure that I'm not under feeding her.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your replies
