Our question this week was:
How much should I feed my puppy?
Every brand of food has different nutrients, caloric densities and feeding recommendations. There is no set formula for how much to feed a puppy. Always consider your pup’s age, weight, and activity level when deciding on the “amount” to feed.
When your puppy is between 3 to 6 months old feed three meals per day. As your puppy ages, his size increases, and he will need more food each day. This amount of food is divided into 3 feedings.
Once your dog is over 6 months of age, his adult feeding pattern can be established. Some dogs do well on one feeding a day but two feedings a day is usually recommended. Small breeds and toy dogs should continue to be fed three times a day, to help prevent low blood sugars.
