I feed twice a day.

If Bamm gets diarrhea, try giving him some pumpkin... his body has to adjust to anew food, just as if you were feeding a new kibble.

Thanks everyone. I've been giving these guys the random raw meal for a while anyway, usually when I can pick up some chicken quarters on sale, so it's nothing completely new. They've both got stomachs of steel for the most part anyway.

Now I just need to get the dogs weighed, because they're both at perfect weights right now. Sawyer was 53lbs in May and Virgo I'm guessing is right around 75lbs.

I only feed once a day. It's easier for my schedule.

At 53 pounds- and normal activity you are looking at a 1/2 pound twice a day. Increase if active. For 75 pounds- you want 3/4 of a pound twice a day..

And then I have 2 active growing boys who are near 100 lbs at 11 mos and are eating 3+ lbs per day between them.

I still feed 3 times a day, but will drop to twice a day in a few months.

I feed healthy dogs once a day. Puppies, sick dogs, bitches who are in whelp or lactating, and sometimes old dogs get fed twice or more a day.

It sounds like most people feed once a day.... I'm curious - Would you feed once a day if you were feeding regular kibble, rather than raw? What's the difference?

I have always divided feedings even when I fed kibble.

My dogs gets fed too much food, in my opinion, to be fed once a day... that's just asking for bloat or other health problems.
