Amount of food consumed will vary based on activity level, age, breed, and environment. Standard 8-oz/250cc measuring cup holds approximately 3.7oz/104g of NutriSource® Choice Chicken Meal & Barley Recipe Dog Food. At 5-7 months and again at about 12 months, your puppy will automatically reduce the amount consumed. This is due to a natural reduction in growth rate and the reduced need for calories. Consult your veterinarian if you believe your dog is too thin or overweight. Remember it is important to have clean, fresh water available for your dog at all times.
