How much should I feed my pit bull puppy?

I have a new pit bull puppy and need to know what and how much to feed him.

He should only be fed a food that is specifically designed for a puppy so that he gets enough vitamins and minerals. On the bag of puppy food it will tell you how much and how often to feed him based on his weight.

The best option will be to find out what he has been eating as it can be detrimental to change a puppies food too quickly, and then to slowly change him onto a good canned puppy food. As for amount,all commercial food will have a feeding guide on the side.

You should start a puppy out on about 1 cup of food per day. If you see he's not eating a half cup fed twice a day, space his meals out more. When I went into PetsMart, they highly recommended Blue Buffalo for its rich ingredients. Also, I've fed my pomeranian Purina and he's a beautiful and healthy dog.

Feed your new puppy your choice of dry puppy kibble. Dry food helps promote dental health. Depending on the age and weight of your dog you should feed him 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 cups twice per day. I fed my puppy in the morning and again around supper time. Make sure to follow a schedule.

I would recommend feeding the dog around 2-4 cups a day. Depending how old the puppy is the desired weight of a pit bull is 65-75 Lbs. As long as it's not over fed 2-4 cups works the best.

The bag/can of food you buy should have instructions based on general size or weight range, maybe even breed type. A puppy should have ready access to food anyway and be allowed to eat his fill. Leave some kibble in a bowl on the kitchen floor.

With a Pit Bull Puppy, two to 4 cups of dog chow should do it. The dog is growing an dneeds it's nutrition. There should be a serving table on the bag somewhere follow that for best results.
