I have a 2 month old Min Pin. I feed her Canidae "All Life Stages" and I was just wondering how many times in a day should I feed her? and how much per serving? Thanks!
She is in the 2 – 10 lb. range and she is very energetic.
Thanks in advance?
A 2 month old should be fed 3 times a day, you’ll cut this down to two times a day in about 2 months. For now, let her eat until she is full (unless she gains an obscene amount of weight). Just like with young children you don’t want to ration her food as her body is growing and needs all the nutrients and energy it can get.
At 4-5 months you will want to cut this back. Do not follow the instructions on the bag. If my two pugs were to get the amount recommend on the bag (about 1 cup a day) they would become obese quickly. I recommend you feed your min pin about 1/2 a cup daily, unless she is VERY active, in which case I would feed 3/4 of a cup. If she begins to gain weight, cut her portion down a little bit. Similarly, if she begins to lose weight give her a little more each day.
