How Many Times and How Much Should I Feed My Min Pin?

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.

    The amount per day is on the bag. Divide the amount by 2 or 3 meals each day. If she gains weight feed a little less. If she looks thin add a small amount.

    Probably about 3-4 times a day.Do you know what your dog’s weight is right now?If you don’t weigh yourself first then with the dog minus that you got your dog’s weight.Whatever your dog’s weight if it’s between 2-10 pounds feed her 1/2 cup-1 1/2 cups and break it into about 3-4 meals.From 6 months -1 year I’d do 2-3 times a day but cut back the amount you feed.If you feed her about 1 cup- 1 1/2 cups that would be 1/4 to 1/2 cup per serving.
    Full grown she should be around 8-11 pounds by dog breed standards

    I would feed three times a day at least until she is 16 weeks old. Then I would go down to twice a day, unless her activity level is so high that she isn’t gaining any weight.

    Minpins are notorious gluttons, so they should not get used to having so many meals every day.
