Question: How Do I Know If I’m Feeding My Puppy Enough?

Puppies need to eat a lot–and not too much.

You should be able to feel but not see their ribs, and they should have a visible waist when you look down at them.

This is true for puppies of any breed, big or small.

How much food do I feed my puppy?

Puppies should be fed three to four times a day therefore if you are currently feeding ¾ a cup of puppy food twice a day you should consider spacing it out by feeding ½ cup three times a day.
