Hi Patty, I saw your post in the forum and I wanted to check out Winstons pics....he is a real cutie. I have 2 little female black puggies. Lila is 4 months and Daisy is 6 weeks....they are my joy. Good luck with him...I'm kinda learning as I go along...
Hi Patty, I think you blocked our possibility of replying in your discussion. So, related to Winston and his food needs. For the time being, you shouldn't worry. He's just a puppy and 1 3/4 cups of food is not that much.
However, I presume you're feeding him puppy food, right?
Hi, Patty! For some reason I couldn't find a way to reply to your post. Anyway...if Winston is only 3 1/2 months old, gaining weight and growing is what he should be doing. The normal weight for a pug is 18 -20#, and I think Boston's get a bit bigger (I think), so I'd say he's looking good. 1 3/4 cups of food does sound like a lot, but it really depends on the food how much you'll feed. It's just like serving sizes. What brand of food is it? Is it puppy food or adult or all ages? I read the ingredients on dog food like I do for my own food. You can find out a lot that way. Good luck!
Hi Patty! Winston is sure cute!! I wasn't able to respond to your query about overfeeding. I have a 3 yr old, a 2 yr old and a 6 month old and no matter what food they eat (or their age) I find that 1/2 a cup in the morning and 1/2 a cup at night works great for maintaining weight and its easy to remember.
