Does any one else's puppies eat only once a day?? Milo is not a morning person, does not want to eat breakfast. Just dinner about 6:00 till 7;00 I thought most dogs eat morning and night. He is 6 months old.
What breed? My guys only eat once a day in the evenings. That is probably while they are all barking right now, they was dinner. The wee pups do eat twice a day. But if the pup is 6 months old and does not want to eat in the morning don't worry about it.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
LOL my point of view different. Years of learning and working with vets, for my personal experience only, feeding 1 time daily is not enough. Nutritionally they need to eat more often just like you and I. Many dogs will inhale food and have digestive problems due to once a day feeding. I've seen this too. Working with specialty vets, I've also learned it's a more of a blanced diet feeding twice.
Our dogs eat twice daily, am and pm, puppies start 3 times daily until 10 weeks of age and then down to twice. I do realize this can be breed specific of course.
Just another point of view, not so convinced there is a right or wrong here, just what works with the dog/breed we may own. Basically I know large breeds and would be the first to admit I can't speak for what's best for smaller breeds.
If it is hot where you are this could have something to do with his eating habits. My dogs do not eat when it's hot out so I have to wake up earlier to feed them and feed second meal later in the evening as well in order to keep there weight up. Other wise they all end up to skinny in the summer :) Or perhaps this is just his schedule, as long as you don't see him begin to loose weight and he is still eating the proper amount don't worry to much, could also just be a phase. All dogs go through a period where they are pickey eaters the mistake alot of people make at this time is adding goodies to the food to maeke the dog eat and this starts a vicious cycle of only eating when you "spruce it up" so don't fall for it, he will eat when he is hungary ;)
