Hi Whorton

Feed amounts vary from brand to brand, so there's no real "magic amount" that I can tell you to give her.

However, there should be a feeding guide on the food itself that will tell you how much to feed her based on age on weight.

Like Honeyec said, it really does vary as far as how much to feed. The premium foods like Canidae & Blue Buffalo you don't have to feed as much, but I used to feed my adults about that same amount. Samson is on a diet, so he doesn't get as much and I've just cut Angel's back a bit also..

As for the puppy weight...It's been soo long since I've had a puppy I really don't know what is about right. But I would think that can depend also... Your vet is the best judge of that....

To be honest Purina really isn't that good of food, vets will hype a certain brand, but it's generally cos they get a kickback from the manufacturer..Usually it's Science Diet that they hype..

This is a very useful site that reviews most of all the dog foods out there and has some pretty good info.

I feed mine Canidae Lamb and rice and they both love it..Blue Buffalo is also excellent, that you can get at most Petsmarts...Both of these use only human grade lamb and no corn!! That's the biggie...But that website I attached really goes into a lot more info..You can compare brands and hopefully you will be able to find something that you can get locally... :)
