Divide the amount shown into 2-3 feedings daily.
Add approx. 1/4 cup (29g) for every 10 lbs.(4.5kg.) over 100 lbs. (45kg.)

Amount of food consumed will vary based on activity level, age, breed, and environment. Standard 8 oz. (250 cc) measuring cup holds approximately 4.1 oz (116 g) of NutriSource® Performance Chicken & Rice Recipe. 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.
