How much food should I feed my puppy?

A puppy usually starts out with dry foods at about three to four weeks of age. At that time you can mix the dry with some water, which is easier for the puppy, and fed three to four times a day. How much you feed your puppy depends on the breed of the dog and should be followed according to the recommendations on the bag of food. Be sure the puppy food you choose is high in nutrients with proper protein, calcium and calories necessary for your dog. Again, the first ingredient on the label should be meat. By the time your puppy is three to four months old, choose a feeding schedule of twice a day, at breakfast and dinner.
