I need some professional advise about the quantity that should be fed my Labrador?

Hi everyone, I've recently bought a Labrador puppy, just 1 and 1/2 week old. I got pedigree food as the breeder advised me to feed the dog with it so that it's nutritional reqirements can be met. I'm not sure what quantity of food the puppy should be given. When I asked about it from my neighbor about that. He asked me to stop feeding pedigree to it as it will get loose motions. That advise was definetly not based on any facts. But, I need some professional advise about the quantity that should be fed each time.

Hi Navjot,
I also bought new puppy, and gon through similar phase like you...
It is always better to ask doctor about it...
I am having puppy when he was 35 days old. Now he is around 50 days.
from begining I started giving him, Cerelac[Milk-O-pet]2 tablespoons+[3-4 TableSpoons of water]+Royal Canin baby food[15 granuels] at 1 time...after 1 st 2 days he started loose motions. I brought him to a doctor, he gave him 1st injection of de-warming+some medicines. After 4-5 days he is perfectly fine. Now I have increased quantity of Royal Canin and decreased quantity of cerelac....after some days I will stop giving cerelac. I hope this will help.

The best age is to get puppy is minimum he/she should be six weeks old. one and half week old puppy is too early and the puppy should feed with his/her mother's milk only. If possible please give the puppy to breeder itself and get the puppy only he is 6 week old. Let him stay with his mother....
