Feeding Time and Frequency
Non-compliance to a dietary regime can lead to insufficient absorption of nutrients, overeating, and cause diseases of the digestive system. So let's find out how to organize a feeding routine in a way to contribute to your dog’s active and healthy life.
To ensure good digestion and absorption of nutrients, the daily norm of food your dog eats should be divided into several portions. The frequency of feeding depends on the age of the dog.
Puppies under 3 months - 5 meals a day
Puppies under 6 months - 4 meals a day
Puppies under 1 year - 3 meals a day
Dogs over a year - 2 meals a day
Some sources state that an adult dog can eat 1 time a day. Still, we strongly recommend feeding your furry friend twice a day, because in case there are more than 12 hours elapses between meals, the dog can experience nausea.
In contrast, too frequent feeding creates a prolonged load on the organs of the digestive system, which can negatively impact their function.
