PUPPY INFO

THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSES. I NEED TO KNOW HOW MUCH A 6 WEEKS OLD BOERBOEL PUPPY SHOULD EAT PER DAY. MINE CRYS FOR FOOD EVERYTIME SHE WAKES UP, EVEN WHEN HER TUMMY IS SO FULL SHE CAN BARELY MOVE. ALSO SHE WAS 2KG AT 5 WEEKS AND HAS PICKED UP 2KG IN 1 WEEK (6 WEEKS 4KG) IS THIS NORMAL??

Dear Helen

It depends on the food that you are giving. At a young age there are no wright and wrong weights. Sounds like a possible worm load and a cheap and nasty food that she is on.

Her tummy should NEVER be ' so full she can hardly move' .

Feed her around 4 times a day, equally spaced out.
