Question
Hi there
I have a 10 week old cocker spaniel bitch. She is fed on Acana Puppy/Junior food and loves it. For her weight and age its recommnded she is fed approx 150g per day-but she seems hungry. Any advice please?
Many thanks

Answer
Hi jean,
She IS hungry and at this age she's having a massive growth spurt so I'd definitely up that amount of food & feed her 4 times a day.  You'll be able to tell when she's getting enough food.

Puppies eat twice as much as an adult dog the same size.  Feeding "guides" are just that..a guide and not written in stone.

Health, nutrition, training. Please note: I used to highly recommend Innova products but, unfortunately, as with Canidae, they have sold out to Proctor & Gamble. This guarantees lower quality to a dangerous point so I will no longer be advising anyone to buy it.
