Use an Automatic Puppy Feeder for Your Puppy
Give your dog the food he needs, so he doesn't become like Cujo, one of the most vicious dogs in movie history.
During the developmental stages of life, the eating habits of a puppy can dictate the rest of his/her life. They need to be fed the proper rations, the proper brands, and during certain times. If you follow the guidelines we lay out for you at Pet Street Mall, you're sure to have a puppy that grows to be a happy and healthy dog.
How Much Should I feed My Pup?
As an owner, you need to find a happy medium. You don't want to give your dog too much food, so he becomes over weight or becomes a food crazed Cujo. Actually, feeding your puppy too much could lead to major health problems down the line. At the same time, you don't want to starve him, either. Most dog food bags and cans give general ideas on how much to feed your dog, but it is your job to keep an eye out and figure out exactly what your dog needs. Generally for puppies, they should be fed anywhere from 1/4 cup of food to 1 1/2 cups per day. It all depends on the breed.
What Kind of Food Does My Puppy Need?
It is recommended that for the first year, dog owners should use specifically designed puppy food. It can actually be dangerous to feed a puppy adult dog food too soon because the proper nutrients just aren't there. Puppy food is protein rich (usually between 28 and 30 percent) and has the proper vitamins and minerals to support bone development. Puppy foods that contain certification labels from the National Research Council (NRC) or Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFC) are usually the best.
How Often Should I feed My Puppy?
Use an automatic pet feeder to make sure your puppy grows up to be healthy.
For the first 4 to 6 months, a puppy should eat 3 meals per day. This is appropriate partly because they can't eat as much in one sitting and partly because it's better for their metabolism, energy, and health. But with work and everything, how is this possible?
