I don't want to cheat the puppy so if it is really something that needs to be done then I will look more towards finding one that isn't a new puppy.
    We both work too so out of necessity our pups have had to be fed twice a day ... doesn't seem to have harmed them in any way!!

    When it was time for me to go back to work, I fed twice a day early morning and then at supper time. Just so the daily requirement is met. Lots of people only feed one meal a day and make it a really good one. I have never heard of any bad effects from this.

    2 meals a day will be fine. The reason breeders would like to see them on 3x a day is to keep their blood sugar level while they are awake and active, plus it helps them digest smaller amounts at a time. More stable poo is a good thing. 2x a day also keeps the blood sugar levels good and balanced so it should be okay. It may cause some gas at first so cut back the amount just a TINY bit, so they do not get a tummy upset from so much food at once, just for a few days until they get into a good routine with it. Then go back to the normal amount. Also a small bite or two or a treat/healthy biscuit just before bed so they do not get upset tummy due to it being empty.

    Just curious..why should the bordatella vaccine be given only as an injection instead of the nasal spray?
