    I am currently feeding 3 times per day. I have recently switched to Fromm and was wondering when can I switch to feeding twice a day? My EB is currently 4 months old.

    Chunk is 5 months and we just switched him to twice a day, and we were told to start putting him on adult food as soon as we finish this bag. Apperently he is gowing too fast for his bones- he had been gaining 2-3 lbs a week! Already at 33 lbs... is this abnormal?

    I feed twice a day. I'm getting a new puppy in two weeks and planning to feed him 4 times a day until 3 months old, 3 times a day until 6 months and 2 times a day from there.

    Free-feeders here. We actually have three fur kids who all free feed from the same bowl with no bickering. As long as it continues to work for them, well keep doing it.

    Bacon eats twice a day on weekends and once during the week. We can give him breakfast during the week but he normally still isn't awake enough to eat and if we leave it for him he won't eat it because he refuses to eat alone.

    Bacon grew really fast like that for awhile then he slowed down and now is filling out and changing but not gaining weight he is just changing shape.

    Once a day here.

    Dogs require long breaks between meals so that their digestive tract can break down food more efficiently emptying out the digestive tract as much as possible before more food is consumed. This is their natural design. Humans, on the other hand, are hunter/gatherer types with a digestive system designed for "gathering" - much smaller meals more often.

    So, adult dogs usually gets fed once or twice a day. Bullie and Gizmo can handle twice a day meals. Angus can't. His poop gets big and soft if he gets less than ~24 hours between meals. So, I'm on a once a day schedule with a handful of their kibbles for treat/reward throughout the day.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    I feed my adults once a day and Zamboni twice. He just turned 6 months and weighs 45 pounds or so. He gets about 3 cups a day between the 2 feedings. TS - Zamboni gained over 10 pounds per week during his growth spurt so for us 2 to 3 pounds a week is standing still. lol He's gonna be a big one.

    I must admit we have had Kain on 1 cup (slightly less) 3 times a day and he's now over a year old and in 'fantastic' shape, we kinda wish he was lazy as he is way more ambitious than we thought we were getting into lol.

    With that being said I'm thinking I should be going to twice a day now, Poor guy won't know what's happeing if he can't eat on his routine 12pm dinnertime.

    I'm assuming 7am and 6pm will work ok for a schedule, and with FROMM (variety of types) 30-50lbs would be 3 cups like I'm feeding now so 1 1/2 each feeding from here on out.

    2X daily... a cup of dry in the morning, then a cup of wet in the evening, for each... then Moe may steal some of his sister's if she doesn't finish all of hers
