Default Puppy Food Feeding Recommendations

I feed Tynan "Fromm Large Breed Puppy Gold" and I noticed that the recommended amount for a 5-7 month old pup is only 2-1/2 to 2-3/4 cups.
Is it just me or does that seem a little low?

If I give Tynan that little, the next feeding he eats like he hasen't eaten in a month!!


Daily Feeding Recommendations:


Breed Size
Large
6-11 weeks 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 cups/day* 120-160 gm
3-4 months 2 to 2-1/4 cups/day* 200-240 gm
5-7 months 2-1/2 to 2-3/4 cups/day* 265-305 gm
8-12 months 3-2/3 to 4-1/4 cups/day* 380-455 gm


Giant
6-11 weeks 1-1/3 to 2 cups/day* 140-200 gm
3-4 months 2 to 3 cups/day* 220-320 gm
5-7 months 3-1/4 to 4-1/4 cups/day* 340-425 gm
8-12 months 4-2/3 to 5-1/3 cups/day* 495-570 gm

*Standard 8 fluid ounce measuring cup

Are you sure it says fluid measuring cup? Ones for dry measure hold a different amount.

Normally package guidelines are the Upper end of what the ave animal needs. I would suggest ringing the vet ...

Large breeds need half the calories lb for lb than a small breed...

By large I mean over 55lbs at maturity and small is under 20
