    Default Feeding twice per day 11 wks old

    Another simple question here. The breeder was feeding Ace twice per day, 1.5 cups each meal. My order of Fromm's Puppy Gold just arrived. I threw in about 10 kibbles with his dinner. He liked it. I'm going to start a 2-3 week transition to prevent any discomfort and loose stool. I've read that puppies need to be eating about 3 times per day. Is it ok if I leave him on twice per day or should I switch to 3 x per day? At his age and lbs, Fromm's website suggests 2-3 cups. Thanks for any tips.

    Every bully is different. My Harlea only gets 1 cup twice a day and it has been that way since shortly affer we brought her home. Poo will tell you a lot and in our situation any more that 2 cups a day was causing her to have explosive poo. So you just have to do a little trial and error to find what is best whether it is 2 or 3 meals a day. If the poo gets runny just cut back on the amount a bit until the poo is firm but not rock solid.

    Hi you are already feeding her 3 cups a day by giving her 1 1/2 cups twice a day, but it may be too much on her tummy all at once, and since puppies have faster metabolisms, it may also be better to feed her 1 cup three times a day. We fed our two guys 1 cup three times a day until they were 7 months old, and then we switched them to adult dog food, and reduced the feedings to 1 cup twice a day.

    I've always fed 4 times a day until 3months, 3 times a day until 6 months and from there on 1-2 times a day. In my opinion twice a day at 11 weeks is too few times and too big portions.

    I fed smaller ammounts and 3 times a day until Ftse was a bit older than that then reduced it to twice a day and he does not always eat the two meals

    I was feeding our pack 3 times a day until they turned about 6 months old… then switched to twice a day.
