Thread: portion sizes

  1. #1

    Default portion sizes

    I am new to the board having recently acquired a bulldog. She is 5.75 months old and weighs 22 lbs. What is the proper portion she should be fed? I am told by the vet she is currently at the age of maximal caloric need. Currently she gets 1 cup twice a day of Earthblend. She finishes her feedings without problem. Too much, too little, or just right?

    I'm not familiar with that brand of food so can't say for certain.However. We feed our adult 1cup twice a day and have read of puppies getting three feedings and anywhere from 1 1/2 to two cups so yes that seems like a small amount for a puppy.

    Roger....... Sorry I cant help you but wanted to welcome you to EBN. Someone will be along soon that will help. Two cups does seem like a small amount for a pup tho.

    I'm not familiar with that brand either, but [replacer_a] of dog food ratings. It depends on the amount of fillers in the food and amount of nutrients... each food is a little different. You might have to ask your vet on how much weight she should be gaining and see if the foods manufacturer's recommended amount to feed is keeping your little one in the optimum range of weight gain.

    Just remember that 98.34% of all people will make up statistics 86.27% of the time that lean towards their own opinion by at least 51%. Of course I'm not 100% sure about that...

    I don't know anything about that food, but it is possible she might need more. If you notice her poops getting soft, you can cut back a little as that is often a sign of over-feeding.
