puppy diet
 
i have a new puppy 1.5 months. shes doing great and healthy.
since im new to this ive been ready alot and calling my vet every 15 minutes lol
ive been feeding her 4 meals a day (dry food)
the problem is that she eat her food and when she done and runs to eat my other pets food. i have 2 years old dog and a cat

i know by then shes eating too much and i dont want her to have any healthy prob from it.
and if she didnt eat everyones food she start whining.
should i feed her more or buy some earplugs? :P

What do you feed and how much at each meal?

royal canin for small dogs. the vet suggested it
30g a meal

and today i saw her eating her own poop
and my other dog (female) is trying to hump her

im really getting upset and feeling like maybe im doing something wrong

i would make sure the food is for large breed dogs and not small dogs...unless you have a small breed dog, ive been using blue wilderness so far and not problems

I would separate your pets at mealtimes so they can't eat each other's food. I'm not sure how much food 30 g would be, I measure rather than weigh, and I also go by the condition of the puppy rather than how hungry s/he seems to be. You want her lean, with slow steady growth, but not too skinny. As she grows you'll need to increase her food up to a point.
