How Much Should I Feed My Dog?
Talk with your vet to determine how much your particular dog should eat on a daily basis as well as when your dog should eat. How much your dog eats depends on his breed, weight and sometimes his age. For instance, puppies need to be fed three times a day or even more based on their weight and growth. Adult dogs may take all day to eat their daily serving of food. Here’s a general rule of thumb for how much to feed your pups: A Yorkie under 10 pounds may eat around ¼ to ¾ cup of food daily. A Beagle between 25 and 50 pounds will eat around 1 to 2 cups a day. A Golden Retriever between 50 and 75 pounds should eat around 2 to 2 ½ cups of food per day.
