    Default How much to feed a 7 Week Old Pug

    I have been researching for an answer to this but I have found a lot of varying answers. How many times a day and how much per feeding would you all recommend. I know that Pugs continue to eat well past what they should so I really don't want to overfeed her. Willow is definitely an eating machine so I need to find out how much is good for her. Also, is she too young for treats? Some sites say yes, other say no.

    i was feeding my puppy 1/4 cup of kibble 3 x a day at first. i'm not sure if that was right, but i think i saw that on the chart on the food bag. at some point (definately older than 7 weeks) i upped that to 1/3 cup 3 x a day.

    I fed my babies 1/3 C - 3X a day until 6 months old and then 1/2 C - 2X a day. Healthy treats are ok.

    Ok. Ty much. That gives me a good idea of how much is good.

    Our Frankie is 9.5 weeks old and we feed him 4 times a day, should I reduce this to 3 times?

    Well ... actually - a 7 week old puppy should still be with his mom, nursing. Perhaps eating puppy mush to supplement twice a day to begin the transition to being weaned.

    Wow...I think 7 weeks old is too young to be away from Mum.
