It is the per day requirement adn no per feed.

As you have a small sized dog (toy breed) you should be feeding him 4–5 small meals a day so what ever amount is written on the pack, just divide it by 4 or 5 and that is how much you should give per meal.


The Dog Breed Info Center's basic feeding guide recommends using an 8-ounce cup to measure out food.

Adult Labradors weighing between 50 and 75 pounds require two to two and a half of these 8-ounce measurements.

Puppies - especially in growth spurts - can consume up to twice what their adult counterparts do.

If the price is a concern, Pedigree meets the low price check off on your list. However, it is not worth putting your dog's health in jeopardy for a lower priced dog food. While many people have been happy with Pedigree throughout the years, it is still not a high-quality food that should be recommended.
Adults on the smaller end of the expected weight range, near 3 or 4 lbs. (1.4 to 1.8 kg) will generally eat the same 1/3 to 1/2 cup per day and adult Yorkies near the larger end of the weight range or a bit over that, in the 7 to 8 lb. range (3.2 to 2.3 kg) may consume up to 2/3 cup per day.
Up to 16 weeks old: Offer ½ to 1 full cup of food at each meal. 16 weeks to 9 months old: Offer between 1 cup and 1¾ cup of food at each meal. 9 months to 12 months old: Offer between 2 cups and 2½ cups of food at each meal.
Just like their owners, dogs need a balanced diet which contains just the right amount of protein, fat, carbohydrates, many different vitamins and minerals to ensure that they stay in peak condition… There is no need to feed any supplements like calcium or home diet while he is feeding on balanced food like Pedigree™.

Dog treats should make up 5% to 10% or less of your dog's daily diet.

Ask your vet about the number of treats this means for your dog.

It'll vary based on his weight and activity level.
