How many times a day?

How many times a day is recommended for an 8.5 week old GSD pup? As it is I feed her thee times a day, once in the AM again around 5pm and for lunch I give her about a half portion of her regular amount which about 3/4s a cup (the regular amount is i mean).

The food is Nutro Natural Choice for large breed pups. As for the actual nutritional facts, I am not at home to check.

3x a day is the average.

Awesome, thanks
Just wanted to make sure I was giving her enough but not too much, I dont want to bloat her :S
I already give her treats made for sensitive stomachs as it is lol.

Re: How many times a day?

I too agree with that. I think pups should be fed 3 times a day until they are 6 months old. But not many agree with me on that - heck, my Vet doesn't even think so!

My thought process behind this is that puppies burn a lot of calories so they need an afternoon meal to balance out sugar levels ...etc.
