Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
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. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hi,

So, we got a 6 week old rescue pup, he's a runt. First month of his life he was not getting enough food, plus he also had some pretty serious worm problems. When we first got him (4 weeks old), we fed him a mixture of formula and crushed dry food 4-5 times per day about 1/2 cup each time. In the last few days we have been feeding Misha 3x per day a mixture of crushed dry food and canned food, also 1/2 cup per serving. He devours it within a minute and wants more. My question is, how much food should he get on average per day? Because of the circumstances do we need to feed him more food?

We have decided to go with Blue Buffalo brand.

Every serving is a mixture of Blue Wilderness with Red Meat dry food and Turkey Chicken canned food.

He gained about 2 lbs in 2 weeks.

Thank you!

Masha & Misha

Masha, welcome to the forum and thank you for rescuing you new fluff ball. Your little guy is probably just hungry and feeding pups up to one year of age 3 cups a day with quality food should be fine, by increasing his food watch for a few things 1-if his poops are soft or runny he may be eating too much cut down slightly on the food. 2-if the vet feels his weight is too much or too little adjust the amounts. When adjusting try at an 1/8 to a 1/4 cup adjustment per meal, and feeding until a year three times a day should be fine too. Giving treats here and there through training should keep hunger at bay, in between meals. Hope that helps and perhaps some one else has a few more suggestions. Good luck with your new, precious pup.
