DOG FOOD BASICS
Left to their own devices a Pug would eat all of the time. Any kind of dog food will do. In fact, almost any kind of food will do.
Almost any Pug gives an Oscar-worthy performance to get more food. In our opinion they rival the Great White Shark as an eating machine except that they’re much cuter. We’ve learned that Pugs always appear to be starving!
They would be happy to eat any time you would like to feed them. Clearly this will lead to one overweight little Pug. There are ways to avoid this. But, sometimes, when a little Pug is putting on his starvation act, almost any owner will be asking the himself: can he really be hungry? Could this dog be starving?
Usually, the answer is no. But when you look at your Pug they can be convincing! If there were Oscars for dogs, a Pug would probably win almost every year. They're natural actors. But the question that eats at almost every owner (no pun intended), can they possibly still be hungry? Am I not giving the little guy the adequate amount of food he needs?
So that brings up the question…
How much food is enough?
Keep in mind that answer will vary according to the type of dog food and the age of your Pug. It will also be a determining factor on how often you feed your Pug. Every Pug owner also deals with the relentless appetite this little breed seems to have. We have found certain
nutritious little snacks
that seem to satisfy our little guy. You should always check with your veterinarian but crunchy vegetables in moderation are a healthy and satisfying alternative to the normal treats.
