I think I am gonna try cutting out the afternoon, especially now with school starting next week. See how it goes.

Sabo is 5 mo and still gets 3 feeding. 1 2/3 c per meal with one small natural instinct raw pattie (the small ones not the hamburger size ones), salmon oil, prebiotics and digestive enzymes in each bowl. He loves his meal times. I'm afraid of bloat so I think I'll always do 3 meals. :/

|Courtney||If he's not interested skip it. I remember my breeder recommending 3 x's a day feeding schedule & saying I will know when he doesn't want the afternoon meal. You can always start it up again.|

i fed my dog 3 cups a day. 1 cup in the am, 1 cup noonish
and 1 cup in the pm. he had a snack and training treats.
i think my dog was 9 months old when i switched to
1 cup in the am and 1 cup in the pm. i've never fed
puppy food to my dogs.

|Msmaria||my puppy switched to 2 feedings a day at 16 weeks . He wouldn't eat in the afternoon, He is still On a 2 feeding Schedule at 7 months but he Seems to prefer his evening meal over his morning meal.|

We switched Angel from 3 to 2 feedings a day due to school starting last week. She is 17 weeks (just over 4 mo) and she's doing just fine.
Emmett was on twice a day feedings from the time we got him at 3.5 months old.

There's no hard and fast rule on this. If he's not that interested in a mid-day meal, then it seems like it would be a good idea to eliminate it now.
Halo was on 3 meals a day for a few months, but I don't recall how old she was when we switched to 2 meals. I'm pretty sure she was under 5 months old though. Keefer was on 2 meals a day when we got him at 9 weeks old. He did get a lot of training treats during the day, so he wasn't really waiting 12 hours between meals.

5 mos now, too early to go to 2 feeding daily?
Wondering if its too early to cut out the afternoon meal, feeding two times daily. Sarge doesnt seem all that interested in the afternoon feed anyway. Havent done the puppy thing in over 13 years so I cant remember. He eats BB large breed puppy - 4 cups daily. Thanks,
