    Default Puppy Food

    Hey Guys,

    I was curious as to how much food exactly and how many times a day did you guys give your 3 month old puppy?

    Ive been giving Tyson about 3/4 cups of food 3 times a day.

    We only feed Harlea 1 cup per meal twice a day due to work schedules. However she gets various fruits and veggies throughout the day as treats.

    I don't remember the amount exactly, I followed what was on the puppy bag by weight... But I did feed 3x a day plus added warm water to keep it soft & prevent choking!

    Hi, we fed our two guys 1 cup of kibble 3 times a day until they were 7 months old, and then cut back to 2 cups twice a day.

    - - - Updated - - -

    We also added warm water to their kibble.

    Do you find Fergus keeps normal weight w the feeding amount? I was giving that and the vet said to cut back a bit cos she would pork out if continued. She also hasn't gotten the exercise she normally gets w her surgeries n cone etc. I just want her to eat enough and she can def clean up a cup and still look for more.

    Fergus is 8 months and 46lbs I took him to the vet last week for his heartworm test and the vet said he looked great. I do walk him and our lab twice a day for 1hr so he gets lots of exercise (early morning and evening when it is cool). If he starts to get fat I will cut back to 2 cups a day. He does get treats during the day fruits, vegi, kongs and a rice cracker before bed so he doesnt throw up from having a empty stomach.

    With Brie until she is running around again probably staying at 2 cups is fine just give her treats vegi, fruits during the day and maybe add some green beans to her dinner to fill her tummy.

    I've been wondering what the ideal amount is as well... I've been feeding Ramsay (4 months old) 1/2 a cup three times a day. He's 25lbs - right around where he should be. I've been considering upping it to 3/4 of a cup 3x a day just to see how his body handles it. His waist is awful tiny and I can't tell if he's too skinny!

    this differs with each puppy. it depends on your bully. some will be fine on 3/4 cup 3 times a day some will need 1 cup 3 times a day. i think its more of is your dog not overweight or underweight and is your puppies stool good.
