Nico gets Purina Pro Plan Puppy Small Breed formula. The feeding instructions say 3/4-1 cup a day now, increasing to 1 cup a day after he's 3 months old. The breeder had recommended 1/2-3/4 cup a day to start out with, increasing to 3/4 to 1 cup. When we first brought Nico home we gave him 1/4 cup 3 times a day, but we cut out the noon meal within a week because he wasn't eating it. So now he gets 1/4 cup twice a day, plus he gets a Purina Pro Plan biscuit. The instructions on the biscuit package say to reduce his kibble to make up for the calories in the biscuit, but they don't say by how much, so not very helpful. Anyway, the recommended amounts on the Pro Plan package seem to be pretty much on target, even though my pup eats a little bit less than they recommend. I can't imagine feeding him 1-1/3 cup - that seems like an awful lot for such a small dog.
