We feed Chevy Canidae and he gets 4 cups per day, 2 in the morning and then 2 around dinner time. Yesterday he didn't eat all of his second "meal." There is definatly more than half left. Now this morning, he usually goes outside to potty first and then comes in to eat and he hasn't even gone near his food dish. I know he'll eat when he is hungry but it just concerns me because this is abnormal behavior for him

I think he's just being picky.

Mine is 8 months and he's done this a lot. Lot's of times he doesn't feel like eating and only eats one meal a day. Probably does this about once a week. Sometimes breakfast, sometimes dinner.

If he doesn't the whole day and the next morning, then I would get worried.

How old is Chevy now? 4 cups a day sounds like a lot for a puppy?

Which formula of CANIDAE? Do you portion feed AM & PM or Free Feed?

Do you ever add anything to his food? Warm water, other food?

How many treats is he getting in a day for training or otherwise?

Hmm I didn't know that the weather played a factor. He is eating normally again. Maybe I'm just a parnoid owner


He is 4 months. He gets 2 cups in the morning around 6:30am/7am and then another 2 cups around 5/6pm. According to the bag of Canidae (All Life Stages), for puppies between 25 and 50 pounds, they recommend 2 to 4 cups per day. We did have him at 2 cups for awhile and gradually increased it up to the four cups. We do not add water to his food nor do we add anything else to his food.
