    I have an 11 week old puppy who seems to be hungry often. I feed him 3 times a day and am currently feeding him Canidae All Life Stages. I know this is a silly question..... but,
    when I feed him to I go by his current weight or his estimated adult weight (which is 1 1/2-2 vs 4-5 cps day)? I've been feeding him the puppy amount (up to 6 mos) based off his current weight of 20 lbs. Actually a bit more (around 3 cups), to be honest. But he's still always hungry. And I know boxers are suppose to be quite ribby, but sometimes I feel like I can see his top hip bones. Im probably over thinking it.

    You go by the current age and weight, and adjust from there. The chart is just a guideline and not a hard and fast rule. So if your puppy is not getting fat and is burning off the extra calories when feeding a little more keep feeding a little more. Plus Boxer pups grow fast! He will be in the next weight bracket before you know it! .
