How much food for a pup

5 posts in this topic

I just got a 7 wk black lab and the people I got him from were feeding him a half cup in morning and evening. He is 11lbs and absolutely hoover vacs his food down. So is a cup a day enough? Any general guidelines for age and weight to determine how much food? Thanks.

I let my pups eat as much as they want until around 8 to 10 months of age. They are little growing machines and need the energy. Look on your puppy food bag, it should give you some guidelines.

I agree, use the guidelines on the bag. A cup a day sounds like too little, I would definately add at least a half a cup in the afternoon.

i just read on the back of the bag to determine. For my current puppy I am doing 5 cups a day, (2 in the morning and 3 in the evening)

My 2.5yr old dog gets 4 cups (2 in the am, 2 in the pm)
