He went back to bed, and I woke up at 8:30 am. I knew they had been out with hubby, but didn't realize he had fed them an hour early, so I fed them and took them out again. They ate their food with the same zest and gusto as always..lol. No wonder they both had massive poops this morning. I hope this doesn't give them an upset stomach or diarrhea. My question is do we feed them their regular meal tonight? We give then 1 1/2 cups of kibble every morning and 1 1/2 cups again in the evening. This means they got 3 cups of kibble this morning, or do we give them half of their usual amount tonight, or do we not feed them tonight at all?
Has this ever happened to anyone else.
This depends on the dog. Some dogs will need 24 hours before their stomachs will settle back down. This is my Angus. If you just overfeed him, just a tiny bit - which is what happened when he ate Gizmo's left-overs when I wasn't looking - he gets giant poops which leads to diarrhea if I don't keep him from food/treats for at least 24 hours. Bullie is a little more hardy. This is one of the reasons I don't feed the dogs twice a day anymore. I do the once a day - 24 hour cycle - with them now which Bullie is fine with and is what is best for Angus.
