How Much Food Do I Feed My Pomeranian?

Don't make the same mistakes I made with my Pomeranian!

My Pomeranian weighs only about 5 lbs. How much food do I feed my Pomeranian? He doesn’t seem to eat enough, only about a cup of food a day.

Poms as you know can range from 3 pounds to 12, however some have been found to be 18 pounds! At 5 pounds, you Pom is a normal, good weight. You can see that at http://www.petpom.com. Portions and feeding times will depend on your Pomeranian’s age, metabolism, activity level and a variety of other factors. All Pomeranians will eat diferent amounts, but there are some simple rules to follow: Growing puppies need about one half to one ounce of dry, premium dog food per pound of body weight every day. This is distributed throughout 3 to 4 meals, depending on the age of the puppy.
Adult dogs need less: One fourth to one – half ounce of dry dog food per pound of body weight every day. Adult dogs can usually eat just one meal per day.
In addition to the dry dog food, a small amount of canned dog food can be added. If you are using quality dry and canned food, a good ratio is 2/3 dry and 1/3 canned. Make sure to bring your Pom to his vet for regular check ups and you have nothing to worry about.

    A cup of food is plenty. My Pomeranian Shih Tzu mix weighs 9 pounds probably doesn’t eat that much per day.

    I have the same dog, she usually eats a half cup in the morning and then a half cup in the evening. She also weighs about 6 lbs. I always leave it out for her, she will come and go and she pleases and only eat a couple pieces at a time. If your dog is eating a cup, I wouls say that is right on.
