    Default Feeding Frequency

    I'm wondering when I should taper down to twice a day feedings for Tate. He's almost 3 and 1/2 months old and i currently feed him 3x/day.

    Do i decrease to 2x/day meals when he hits a certain age or is this a bully-specific issue that i should ask his vet about?

    Thanks for you input!

    I cut Truman back to twice a day at 5 months old. It just makes it SO much easier regulate potty time and really accelerate potty training. I know a couple people couldn't believe I was still feeding three times a day at 5 moths so I am sure 3.5-4 months is a good age to reduce the number of feedings.

    I took Lucy from 3 times a day down to 2 when she turned 6 months. That is what my vet suggested.

    I am struggling with this too. Planned on doing it at 6 months. I just started transitioning Jake to a new food. If all goes well I will cut him to 2 feedings per day.. in a month when he hits 6 months. My problem is I can't seem to increase the amount in his feedings without him getting diahheria. When I take him down to 2 feedings he will need more each feeding. Hopefully his new food will digest better for him. He gets 3/4 cup three times a day. That will have to increase to probably a cup each feeding when we go to twice a day.

    We moved Daddy to twice a day almost immediately ... purely because we had to .... there was just nobody home at lunchtime on a regular basis to feed him. He seemed to transition from three times a day, to two times a day with no problem!!!!
