How much should I feed my 10 month old minature schnauzer? She is 13 inches at the shoulder aND weighs 20 pounds. I think she should weigh about 17 or 18 pounds.

Here is a feeding chart, much depends on the activity level of the dog. The servings are in grams - there are 28 grams to an ounce. Your adult mini schnauzer should weigh something between 8 to 12 kilos, (17 to 26 pounds) depending on male/female and height and age.

She should be getting about half a pound of food a day split into 2 feeds., If she loses weight, increase it slightly - and vice versa if she gains weight.

Size Weight(kg) Daily Serving (g)
Toy 2-5 55-115
Small 5-10 115-190
Medium 10-20 190-320
Medium/Large20-30 320-430
Large* 30*-40* 430*-520*
Large/Giant*40*-50* 520*-620*
