2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction.

Hi! It really just depends on what you're feeding him and how much you're feeding him. Most dog food come with recommended feeding amounts and how often a day.

When I first got my dog, I was feeding him half a cup 3 times a day. Check with your dog food bag and see what it recommends.

I feed my 2 month old puppy 4 times a day. That is the schedule I have my other dog, and cat on. I just adjust the amount according to needs. She would eat as much food as would give her lol, I would say its about a full cup per day total.

I feed my puppy half a cup twice a day, but I'm not really underfeeding him either since the fat and protein content in his food is really high and they wont eat much more than a cup a day anyways.

I don't think that the number of times you feed them a day matters as much as the quality/quantity of the food. So personally I think that 2-3 feeding times a day is plenty as long as your giving them enough food per day to begin with. If you're worried about underfeeding then just feed the recommended amount for his food at his currant age/weight. If he still seems hungry then up the amount by a little bit and vice versa.

I'm just finishing first year in Vet Nursing... you guys may call it Vet tech.. not 100% sure

we are taught to feed by a calculation called MER (Maintenance Energy Requirement)

Aslong as your pup is getting it's required Kcal per day, it should be fine.

Here is a link to an online calculator, can be quite difficult to calculate yourself.
MER calculator

Also make sure the food is a 'nutritionally complete' one.
I only feed nutritionally complete to my dogs, as Keyto is very fussy and will only eat small amounts,
It's best what she does eat provides everything she needs.

In New Zealand we have dog rolls, which are generally full of crap fillers and only a very small amount of nutritional requirements.

Hope this helps Smile
