How much food does a puppy need to eat?

Mum and Dad will have discussed your puppy's food requirements with the breeder and will hopefully have received a diet sheet to bring home. This will give you details of types of foods and times of feeding that your puppy is accustomed to. Like human babies, puppies have small tummies and need fed little and often - 3 or 4 meals per day up to six months old then 2 meals a day should be sufficient. Please do not be tempted to change your puppy's diet too soon as changing homes is stressful for the puppy and continuity of feeding is very important at this time. If you do want to change it, wait until the puppy has settled in and is eating well, then introduce the new food gradually over 6 or 7 days.
