These guideline amounts are a starting point and your puppy may need more food depending upon age, activity and temperament.
In order to reach optimal body condition, you may need to adjust food intake.
These amounts represent the total recommended volume of food per day, and you should divide the total recommended feeding amount by the number of times you feed your puppy per day to get the actual portion size per feeding.
Remember to have clean, fresh water available for your puppy at all times.
