Default Am I feeding my boxer enough.

Hi all. Looking for some advice. My boxer puppy is 7 months old and I feel she is hungry all the time. I feed her nature diet in the Morning and then she gets some mince and a mix at lunch and then for dinner sometimes a half a tin of butchers with mix. Not sure this is enough or if the quantity is enough. Please help. Thank you :-)

You can read this and that on how much to feed. My rule of thumb is how they look, does she look skinny? Or is she getting a lot of weight?

She looks slightly thin. She's very well exercised. I just feel she is always looking for more.

Well puppies do eat a lot. They are going very quick. Also the type of food matters, maybe it's not as filling for her as you think?

I've been feeding her on the food she was getting as a pup. The breeder I got her from has her sister and she now has her on adult food. But I'm thinking I should maybe give her more of what she gets.

At 7 months I don't think your pup should be on adult food.

Neither do I. Im Thinking give her a little more. She gets half of a tin and a handful of eukanuba mix. Do you think this is to little? I'll post a picture. Am I feeding my boxer enough.-imageuploadedbypg-free1357688230.439302.jpg

On the bad of the food it should tell you how much it is for what weight the pup is. If you feel that's not enough give a little more

You should be able to feel her ribs, but not easily see them (except for maybe the last 2), however she should still have a waist.
So if she's hungry and you can see her ribs, feed her more.
