    Default Fed twice

    Hi, today is my day off and my husband let me sleep in, I usually get up at 6:30 am to take my 2 babies for their morning duties. I feed them when I get back around 7 am. Usually the 2 are still sleeping when I get up, but this morning Hubby said Dozer was whining at 5:30 am, so he took them both outside and then fed them their breakfast early. 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.

    I had a very similar situation not long ago, my husband did me the favor or letting Vegas out and feeding him breakfast, then left to do some running around. I got up and did our usual routine of letting him out and feeding him his breakfast and he ate like he was starving. I later found out Joe had already fed him so he had two breakfast. Vegas was fine, no belly aches, no gas, just one big HAPPY boy, lol. I kept him on the normal schedule for dinner and he was OK. I wouldnt worry to much about it and I bet you have two happy sleepy bullys this afternoon.

    It's happened to me before, my two thought they hit the lottery getting fed twice! I still gave them their next meal only just gave them a little less. I'm pretty sure the only thing that happened was their #2 were slightly bigger and a bit softer, but they were fine the next day. If I remember correctly (happened last summer) they were gassy that day too.

    We've done this before several times over the years. I also give them something for dinner though, but usually just a little bit like a 1/2 cup.

    Thanks guys for your responses. I was thinking the same thing to give them half the usual portion for dinner.

    Funny!! I overfed Herman today (no daddy involvement). I put too much in his bowl, so I took a little out. Then I ended up giving him the rest a couple of hours later. HUGE POOP when we went outside!!!! it was HUUUUGE! I felt bad for stuffing him but he was very happy It wasn't twice his normal breakfast, just a little bit more, so I may feed him a tiny bit less tonight.

    Shame on them for not letting you know they ate already. Don't feel bad, I think we all have done it a time or two, and I'm with everyone else, give them 1/2 of their normal amount for dinner.

    You didn't notice them giving each other high fives? That's usually the sign that they are about to be fed twice. Not that we have ever done it. Lol

    Thanks everyone, I did only give them half their usual amount for dinner tonight. Blossom pooped many many many times today, lol. But no diarrhea, but It didn't faze my Dozer, he has a cast iron stomach. After all he's my object eater, he has eaten rocks, dirt, grass, sticks, socks, and paper towel.
