How Much to Feed a 10 Week Old Pug Puppy?

Just today I got a new 10 week old pug puppy, but I want to know for sure how much I should be feeding him.

I would start with about a third of a cup each of 3 times a day or what the package says. If you know what it was eating before, stick to it. Otherwise, any of the common puppy chows should be fine. Unfortunately the sudden switch in diet may cause diarrhea.

Your dog definitely should be narrower at the waist than the hips and chest. You should be able to easily feel the ribs, but not see them. Each dog is different. Standard recommendations are a good place to start, but each dog must have its food and exercise adjusted to its individual needs.

    A puppy of this age should be fed four times a day on a dedicated puppy food, the type of food and weight of the puppy would determine how much/little should be fed. Ensure that the puppy has access to fresh water at all times and is wormed regularly. If you need diet advice talk it over with your vet, whom you should have registered with when you bought the puppy.

    Buy puppy food. It is best if you can get the same kind as the puppy was already eating. Then start out by reading the package. You can then decide whether your puppy needs more or less than that amount going forward.

    ‘How much’ is virtually impossible to say - even the amount suggested on bags of feed is only a guide. Ask the breeder how much she was giving him would be a good start, but really it’s more a matter of feeding what you think looks right, and if it goes, all of it, fast, then up the amount and the reverse if he leaves some in his bowl. Ideally you should be able to feel, but not see the ribs on your puppy. But do remember to increase the amount you feed, as he grows.

    Always look to his breeder (rather than the vet who can’t possibly know everything about every breed!) with your non-medical problems - they should be there to help, throughout the life of your dog in fact. There is nobody better than a reputable experienced breeder who knows their breed inside out, and particularly their own bloodlines! I had a tried and tested (for generations) feeding guides rubbished by a vet once (according to a new puppy owner) and that really annoyed me!!

    This depends on what you are feeding. All kibble food varies in the quantity fed depending on the density of the food.

    Read the bag and see what it says as that is your best guide.

    If by any chance you are raw feeding then 15% of expected body weight per week is about the norm.
