It really depends...how does his body condition feel...? That's what really determines the right amount of food.

I free feed except for a small handful of boiled chicken twice a day to get Callie to take her meds. Maybe this would help Dog Food Calculator | Dog Food Advisor

We feed Sophie 1/4cup of food per day. She gets it in 3 different feedings with added water and some boiled turkey. Would love to free feed her but our cats love her food and she has appetite issues, so we need to monitor how much she is eating.
I guess it would depend on the brand of food though because some foods she only needed 1/4 cup before she started gaining weight but others she has needed a 1/3 cup.
She's 7.5years old and weighs 5lbs.
