Question She is hungry all the time!

When Bang gu arrived 3 weeks ago, the breeder let me know what she has fed Bang gu. It was 2 times dried food(Pedigree puppies) and 2 times meats(Pedigree Sachets). Also, twice goat milk.

I give Bang gu food at 7 am, 12, 4 pm and 8 pm. In between, we give her treats. Our vet gave her dried liver when Bang gu was taken there for the first injection. So, we bought some pig ears(despite they look disgusting!).

Bang gu loves pig ears and she almost finished one within 3 days. (very mind she is only 1.8 kg and 11 weeks old). We only let her have it less than 2 hours a day. Bang gu is always hungry.. I think she would do anything for more food..

I wonder sometimes whether I should give her little more. But, I am giving her enough food as instructed on the packages.

My old dog when I was young, always had a full of food, but never finish them at one go.

I would feel terrible if I am under-feeding Bang gu...

Your sure feeding enough times a day but how much each feeding. She is so small it is wise to feed more often small amounts. Goat milk is good for dogs. I use it to wean puppies also. How do u feed the milk? Do you wet her dry kibble? Some dogs act hungry and would eat till ill, this is why we control their feedings. Some would eat until they burst open kiddn, but we must control eating programs. I would never freed so your doing the right thing in many feeds, just how much each feed. She must be very healthy? A hungry dog is often times very healthy, it is finicky ones that often have a problem. Sure are cute dogs.

Feeding a growing puppy always involves a little guesswork. As long as her weight is what it should be for her age, she's not underfed. Growing puppies do need their food increased regularly while they're growing by just a little bit every week.

The Vet told us Bang gu is not underweight or overweight. She is very active though. She runs around our garden a few times and sleeps afterward. We also give her some carrots, bananas etc.

she sounds like my dog Madison, gets fed lots, is not overweight or underweight and excercised. But she is always hungry and will eat until ill and because of this free feeding has been out of the question since I brought her home at 8 weeks.
Her diet sounds healthy and it sounds like you are doing a great job.
good luck

If your giving fruit and veggies also the dog must be most happy and gets exercise daily, so I would not be concerned if your vet is not. Long as she is happy, dogs can eat one out of house n home sometimes if we let them. Must be a limit or one tends to over feed, sounds like your doing just fine....
