1. When can I start my 8 week old lab puppy on Front Line ? 2. How many cups of food per day for a 8 week old lab puppy ?
Hello - I am Dr. Matt - I would be glad to help you with your question.How much does Moses weigh (roughly) right now?What food are you feeding him?
17 pounds and IAMS " Pro Active health - Smart Puppy"
Thanks for the additional information.Congratulations on your puppy! Frontline can be applied starting at 8 weeks of age therefore you can use this topical flea preventive starting now. I would recommend feeding Moses about 3-3.5 cups daily of the IAMS Proactive Food. I would recommend dividing this up into at least two meals daily. If you are not using the large breed version of this puppy food, I would also recommend switching him to that formula once you are finished with the current bag as this is better for him to have even growth of his muscles and bones. Here is more information and a recommended feeding chart for you on when to switch the amounts that you are feeding:http://www.iams.com/dog-food/iams-proactive-health-smart-puppy-large-breedClick on nutritional information and then feeding guidelinesHope this helps -please feel free to reply if you have any other questions.
