Re: Increasing food?
If the bag doesn't have a guideline for puppies, I'd try between 1-1/2 to 2 times as much for a puppy as for an adult of the same weight. So as her weight goes up, the amount you feed her goes up too. But that's a general guideline - if she seems too skinny increase a bit more, if she's starting to look chubby, cut back a little. As her growth rate slows down, say around 6 months old, you can start cutting the quantity back gradually until eventually she's at the adult amount, or whatever amount will keep her at the proper condition. I remember running my hand down the sides of my dogs daily as they were growing puppies to check their condition.
What are you feeding her? BTW, she's sure a cutie!
