Wellness puppy shows 3.25 cups for a 25lb at 4 mos.
Wellness large breed puppy shows 3.5 cups for the same.

I'm going to aim for the 3.25 mixing both. Just wanted to know why the instructions go up then level off as they get older? Example: at 7 mos and 50lbs they should get like 6 cups but at a year it drops down to 3.5.

Isn't there concern about not over feeding because of orthopedic issues?

I'd have to guess it's because as a puppy they are still growing and you want them to put on weight, but by a year they've done most of it, so you need to drop it down to maintenence or they'll get overweight.

My dogs have eaten Wellness for 11 years and not LB or LBP. As adults, they eat 2 cups/day. As puppies they eat at most 3 cups/day but usually closer to 2 cups.
