My girls Maxine and Mia are almost 4 mos old. I started out with trying to keep a feeding schedule, as recommended by a couple Chi websites and, of course, the pet store. However, it quickly turned to free feeding, as they just weren't cooperating with the scheduling! I was concerned with the hypoglycemia threat as well....They have sort of fallen into their own schedule, which is 2-3x per day, and they never finish all the food I put out, which I still measure out to stay within the age recommendations for their size/weight/age. From everything I've read, Chihuahuas are NOT schedule eaters! Even the history suggests that because of their small size, they were unable to effectively hunt, so were natural scavengers, thus indicating they are not prone to a set eating schedule. That being said, a dog can certainly be trained to do things a certain way....my dilemma is that I worry about their health down the road, as adults. Am I doing them a disservice by not insisting on a set feeding schedule? Thanks for any input, shared experience, etc.
