    Default How much how often to feed?

    I'm feeding Wellness, puppy brand and it doesn't give any indication on how much to feed. I was told by the breeder to feed 3-4 times a day, but how much per serving??

    I fed Brutus 3x a day 1 3/4 cup am lunchtime dinnertime! At 6months he went to 2 x a day 2 cups am 2 cups pm he is 9 months now! I know a lot of peope recommened adult food for them as its better for them proetin wise b/c our bulllies take longer to grow! I am not familiar with wellness but I do know most bullies have some type of allergy like rice and chicken being the most commen but what works for one doesnt work for others! You can also go to the nutritien forum and search the food recomendations based on star rating which gave me the info for changing Brutus's food and I am so happy I listened to my friends here! Let me know if you need anything else!

    @ChanelnBrutus : wow we feed much less to our bullies, on the advice of the vet, and he still says they could lose a few even though i can feel their ribs and they have a tuck. i use orijen, and i know it has more calories, but i feed them 2 cups a day am and supper. i hope it's enough!

    i understood that if you have a breed that has low energy, you should feed less than the recommended amount on the bag. maybe even up to half the amount that it says, so you are probably alright. but a puppy should be allowed to eat as much as she wants during every meal

    Yes I totally agree if your dog is lazy and not very active you wouldnt feed as much! Brutus doesnt stop all day he is very high energy so he needs it! lol

    If you are doing 3 or 4 small meals... 1/2 or 3/4 cup. but the puppy experts can give better advice @Davidh @Sherry @desertskybulldogs

    How old is the pup? at least 3 meals a day unless he is very young then 4 times a day and the amount depends on how old and how big the pup is.

    Well, if your puppy is very young like 8 weeks old, the food should still be made moist with warm water, If your puppy is 10 or 11 weeks old, a little more on the dry side. If your puppy is 12 weeks old dry is ok. 3 to 4 smaller meals a day in the beginning. If your pup is "big bone", they need around
    3/4 cup a feeding. We should know how old your pup is, and pictures will help too
