How Much Should I Feed My 10-Week-Old Boxer Pit Mix Puppy Daily?


Dear VetBabble,

I have a 10-week-old Boxer Pit mix and I’m wondering, how much should I feed her each day? I understand that the nutrient content in different foods can vary, so how do I find the proper guidelines for her diet?

Finding the Right Amount of Food for Your Growing Puppy

Feeding your new puppy a proper diet plays a pivotal role in their growth and overall health. Knowing the right amount to feed your pup can be a bit daunting with so many options available, but fret not! We’re here to help you navigate the world of puppy nutrition.

First, remember that every dog is unique, and the exact amount of food will depend on multiple factors such as their individual metabolism, activity level, and the nutrient content of their food. To make sure your puppy is getting the proper amount of nutrients, have a look at our article, “How Much Should My Dog Eat?

Choosing the Best Food for Your Puppy

When selecting a food for your pup, it’s important to pay close attention to the nutrient content. High-quality dog food should have balanced nutritional values and be appropriate for your puppy’s size and breed. To help you find the best match, we’ve outlined “5 Rules to Follow When Searching for the Best Puppy Food.”

Once you have chosen the perfect food, make sure to read the feeding guidelines on the back of the packaging. These guidelines generally offer a range to follow based on your puppy’s age and weight. Keep in mind that these are just guidelines, and it’s essential to adjust your puppy’s portions according to their growth and activity level. If the feeding guidelines are not available on the package, don’t hesitate to contact the food manufacturer for more information.

In addition to finding the right food, it’s also essential to ensure your pup is receiving a balanced diet. Check out our article, “Dog Food: A Balanced Diet for Your Dog,” to learn more about the key components of a well-rounded canine meal plan.

Monitoring Your Puppy’s Growth

As your puppy grows, their dietary needs will change, and it’s crucial to keep track of their development to provide the right nutrients. An excellent way to gauge your puppy’s growth is by using a puppy growth calculator, like the one featured in our article, “How Big Will My Puppy Get? A Puppy Growth Calculator.”

Adjust your puppy’s food portions as they continue to grow and keep an eye on their body condition. Ideally, you should be able to feel your dog’s ribs and see a visible waistline when viewed from above. Don’t forget to visit your veterinarian for regular check-ups and to discuss any concerns regarding your puppy’s growth and diet.

In conclusion, providing a healthy diet for your growing Boxer Pit mix is essential for their overall well-being. Take time to research and choose the best food, closely monitor their growth, and consult with your veterinarian for guidance. With proper care, you’ll set your puppy up for a happy, healthy life.
