    Most puppy food has guidance on how much to feed based on the expected full grown weight of the dog. You should be able to find this on the packet.
    Divide by 4 and that's what each meal should be.

    PS congratulations on the new PUP - you do know pictures are the law don't you

    Eeeek how will I know what the expected weight will be, I presume straight to the vets when she comes home?? Really not happy about her being on pedigree but thats something that can be sorted with time.

    Yeah I know pictures are law and I will probably bore you to death with them lol...be warned :blushing:

    JRT's are normally 14-18lb.
    Unless she is a miniature and they weigh approx 10lb
    Ask the breeder how much mum and dad weigh that should give you an idea.
    Hope that helps.

    I look forward to seeing the pictures. She looks so sweet in your avatar
