My poor Miss Murphie has a grain intolerance and I am starting her on Earthbalance Meadow Fields but the amount to feed is very vague with a suggestion to free feed...ya right....we have a lab! Does anyone have their pup on this and how much do you feed per day. She is 12 lbs and 12 weeks old, she's a little thing.
Did she have a grain intolerance at the breeders?
how was that diagnosed?
it would be pretty strange for a puppy to have allergies.
is the earthborn properly balanced for a puppy? most grain free foods are not.
is this puppy from a good breeder that knows their lines? if so have you talked to them?
what food was the puppy on when you brought them home and did you change it?
Dogs generally don't develop food intolerance until much older than 12 weeks.
As for your question about how much to feed.. I would start by trying three cups a day (split into three meals). If her poops get mushy, then cut back the amount. (too much food is a common cause of loose poops) If she's too thin, increase the amount.
