I don't think that enough. Look at the back of the food, it should tell you how much food to feed him. He is young, he needs more food. If anything call your vet if you have one. I think he needs more food though.

I agree - check what the bag of food says or your vet will also tell you how much he should be eating a day.

That seems like an awfully small amount of food. Sasha eats anywhere from 1/4 to 3/8 of a cup a day, but she's almost 2 years old. When she was a puppy, she ate 3 times a day, 1/4 cup each time. As she got older, I was able to cut it down to 2 feedings a day as she became less interested in eating 3 meals.

When Kimbo was 8 weeks old he weighed 1lb. 3 oz. He ate 2/8 of a cup per day, moistened w/water. I divided that up into 3 servings. Now that he's 13 weeks old, he eats 3/8 of a cup a day. I divide that up to 1/8 for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
