How much food should you feed your puppy?

How much you feed your puppy ultimately depends on their age and size. Additionally, it depends on the nature of the ingredients in your puppy food of choice.

The best way to determine the right amount to feed your puppy is to look at the product label, which will have a recommended amount to feed them according to their weight and age.

You can also pay attention to your puppy’s current weight and build, notes Dr. Richter, board-certified veterinarian and the founder of Ultimate Pet Nutrition. For example, if they’re looking a bit rotund then that’s a sign you’re probably going a bit too heavy on the kibble pour. If they’re on the thinner side, you may need to give them a bit more with each meal.
