There are fine lines on the inside of most pet food scoops which indicate where the 1-cup and 2-cup volumes are.
If your coop doesn't have these lines, stop using it, and start using proper measuring cups.
If your scoop has the measurement indicators, make sure you measure accurately up to that line and not over it.
If you scoop too liberally, that "slight bit" of food over the line, especially in a cat or small dog, can quickly and subtly pack on the pounds. If your pet is small (under 25 lbs) it's best to use proper measuring cups or a kitchen scale.
