I have been feeding winston 3X per day as breeder suggested. He seems full. Does his buisness and then has a nap. When he wakes up he seems to be starving. He is only 5 weeks. Am I feeding him often enough? I don't want to overfeed him and if I just left the food out all day I don't think he would ever stop eating. He is a little piggy. Any advice please.
Puppies that age should eat only 3x a day about 1/2 cup for each feeding for now. That will increase as he gets bigger. Are you feeding dry food? Add a little water to the dry food about an hour before. This will allow the food to expand a bit in the bowl rather then in his tummy. Basically just sprinkle the food with water, just enough to wet it but not soak it. If you put too much water just drain it. Puppies love their food. You can give him a little bit here and there as a treat but you should not over do that either. Keep him busy and play with him to help keep his mind off LOL Poor little guy!!!! LOL
