Default My pup searches...

Help, my almost 6 month old pup seems to search for food. I am concerned maybe he isn't eating enough. He is a highly active boy as we have a 1 1/2 year old Lab cross companion for him. He will be 6 months on December 14th. I am wondering how much he should be eating and if you think he is under weight. I am also not sure that he is pure read, what do y'all think My pup searches...-imageuploadedbypg-free1353735532.592865.jpg

He's definitely a mix, but the food says how much should be fed accordingly to weight unless the vet says otherwise. I would suggest a kong filled with yummies

What do you feed him and how much? Does he look to be in good weight? His condition would be more of an indication of how much he needs, if he seem thin then feed more.

Some dogs are obsessed about food and always act like they are starving - can't really go by their behaviour to know if they had enough.

He seems like a fine weight but hard to tell from the photo. Need 2 standing photos for that, one shooting down from above and the other a side view.

Use the amount on the side of the dog food bag as a guide, though generally I find I have to feed less or my dogs get fat. But the amount of exercise and your pups motabilism (that's spelled wrong?) make a difference too.

My GSD puppy is 6.5 months old and eats 4 to 5 cups of Avoderm kibble a day. She looks healthy, although nonGSD owners have told me she looks thin. When folks mention raw, do they mean uncooked meat? I cook it too. But don't give meet every day. Can't get her to eat veggies.

My GSD is currently eating 3 cups a day with 4oz of raw chicken and veggies. I get told he is starving but I don't know that he is pure bread and I don't want to over feed. He's almost 6 months old My pup searches...-imageuploadedbypg-free1353864450.436364.jpg
