How much food should a 6 lb 1 year old chihuahua eat in 1

Customer Question

How much food should a 6 lb 1 year old chihuahua eat in 1 day.

How much exercise does he get? Does he go for walks?


What is the name of the hard and soft food that you feed him? What brand and kind?


On average, the normal feeding amount is 1 cup per 10 pounds of body weight.


So if he weighs 6 pounds, I would say he should eat 3/4 a cup of food a day.


If you feed a high quality dog food that has real meat as the main ingredient, and does not contain a lot of corn fillers, you will not have to feed as much as you would as if you are feeding a lower quality food.


You can add green peas, carrots, or green beans if he will eat them so he gets some veggies with his meat and rice.
