How Often Should You Feed Your Dog?

Dogs have a reputation for always being ready to eat, but how many times per day should you really be filling your pooch’s food bowl? Your veterinarian can offer you some great advice to help you make smart nutritional choices for your pet. This video should also help some.

Many factors go into determining the right eating plan for your dog. If you have a small puppy, he or she may need to eat as many as four times per day, thanks to his or her small stomach. As dogs age, most of them can settle into a routine of eating twice per day. Eating too much in one sitting can leave your dog hungry later and increase the risk of bloat, which requires emergency veterinary care.
