Q. I'm fostering some now motherless 5 week old Pitbull puppies. There are 5 of them. How much do I feed them? I give them blue buffalo puppy food by wa
A. It should say on the Blue Buffalo on the back under, "puppies" or some sort of age chart. Make sure it's puppy food.. puppies need extra protein and nutrients. http://bluebuffalo.com/product-finder/dog/?facets=Puppy,Dog_DryFood#
http://www.bullytree.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Feeding-Chart-Blue-Buffalo.gif - On the back of a puppy-food bag from Blue Buffalo it says underneath 3-5 months, "3 to 20 lbs: feed 1/3 - 1 1/4 cups per day" and "21 to 50 lbs: feed 1 1/2 - 3 cups per day." Make sure you are breaking that up into at least three meals. Let's say you decide to feed them 1 1/2 cups per day each, then, you should measure that out, and set it aside. Throughout the day, you should offer at least three mealtimes with that set-aside amount. You want to start with the least amount, and then if they seem hungry (licking the floors, begging you constantly for food, whining/crying) feed them a little more until you get it right. Do not overfeed, and try to avoid underfeeding a well.
