    Default How much should I be feeding Tali?

    So I have noticed that she is ALWAYS hungry. The first thing she does when we let her out is look for left overs in Jovi or Bella's bowl. Which is normal in a puppy. However I am thinking maybe I am not feeding her enough. I feed her 1/4 cups 4 times a day. So essentially I am feeding her a cup a day. She is now 14 weeks so I feel her intake should be more? Have I been underfeeding her all this time? Any suggestions would be great. Also I am feeding her the Fromm's Puppy Prairie Gold.

    Sorry I just looked closer at the measuring cups and the one I use for Tali is 1/3 And I use that 4 times a day. So it is 1 and 1/3 however, that really seems low. I think I got the wrong information on how much to feed her. Now I am a bad momma!!

    That does seem a bit low. Many feed either 1 cup twice or 3 times a day depending on age and how their poo looks. For Harlea she get 1 cup twice a day and any more than that she has runny poo.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Here is a great guideline that I try 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 April, you have been given great advice already. When my guys were puppies, I fed them 1 cup 3 X a day until they were 7 months old. Growing puppies need the extra fat and calories for their rapid growth. Then we switched them to adult dog food and reduced their feedings to 1 cup twice a day.

    We use to feed the pups 1 cup 3x a day and about a month ago switched to 3/4 cup 3x a day, the pups are 8 & 9 months now.

    Bella is 8 months old. I've been giving her 1 cup, twice a day for several months now. I also add coconut oil and fish oil to her meals...which add a lot of calories I think.
