Q. How much to feed 3lb and 5lb puppies?
A. Feed the best food you can afford and check the packaging for suggestions on how much to feed. Puppies do best with several small meals per day, but at least two, morning and evening will help keep him/her on a schedule with housetraining and help them not be so hungry in between meals. Weight your puppies weekly and use this as your guide. If they are feeling too bony, increase their feed slightly. You should be able to feel ribs, hips and spine with gentle pressure, not just under the skin and not have to press too hard to find them. This rule of thumb works throughout your dog's lifetime.
