gsdsar How old is your puppy? My make got 1 cup three times a day for a while. You want a thin pup, not skinny. You should be able to just visualize their ribs. Their back bone and hip bones should not be visible.

If she is gaining weight at a healthy rate, and your vet thinks she is okay, then I would not worry.

Am I under feeding my puppy?

I feed Jenna 3 meals a day one cup of kibble (wellness core puppy) and a spoonful of pumpkin. She is gaining weight but for some reason I still see her ribs. The bag says I should feed her 2 3/4 cups a day I'm feeding her 3 (1 each meal) and she eats the whole thing. Is this normal or should I up the feeding?
