    Default Amount of food for EB puppy

    Hey guys, just wondering how much food are you or did you feed your English bulldog at 4 months old? Diesel is 4 months old and weighs in at 20.3 lbs (he's a big boy), I feed him roughly 2 lbs of food a day. (10% of his body weight).

    2 pounds of food a day is way to much, half a cup 3 times a day is what we fed our boy at 4 months. Your should look at the bag and the recommendations they give on there.

    Thanks dolphin. He is also in the middle of switching from barf to taste of the wild and I also feed him 3 times a day. He went to the vet a week ago for a wellness check up and the vet didn't mention he was too fat. I really think he is just a big bully. His mother and father was one of the biggest I've seen personally. I'll probably cut it to 1.5 lbs to see how he does on that.

    this is a good scale to follow:


    8 weeks 1/2 cup 3 times a day
    12 weeks 2/3 to 3/4 cup 3 times a day
    4 & 5 months 3/4 cup 3 times a day
    6 months to 1 year 1.25 to 1.5 cups twice a day

    Hi when our guys were puppies, we fed them 1 cup of kibble 3 times a day until 7 months of age, and then we reduced their feedings to 1 cup of kibble twice a day.

    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.
