Default How often to feed

I wl soon be feeding Oscar raw but I'm still wondering what time is best to feed him,?
Should I be feeding 2 or 3 times a day for his age (see siggy)
I work generally 9-5 (twice a week I work 9- 8 ) and my boyfriend is always in the house at around 3. What time do you recommend I should feed him... I will be feeding roughly 50g a day and don't want him starving all day but then don't want him eating too late and pooing at night..

At 6 months I moved to twice a day-I would feed before you leave then at like 8- it really depends when you go to sleep though. For the next month or so I would give him a snack at 3, you can phase that out slowly, but for now 3 times a day is probably a good idea, even if one is just a little snack.

How much does he weigh?

I agree that three times per day is probably best. Most dogs will start phasing out the mid-day meal all on their own.

yes i agree 3 times for now than 2 times. You will know when he is ready for 2 times. I free fed Chico since he was a baby dry food. When i started Raw I just gave him 2 times a day and he was fine with it. But he is almost 5 years old.

Thanks guys I'll keep feeding 3 times a day for now.

We went to the vet today for a check up and surprise surprise he didn't approve of the raw diet. He said dogs get everything they need from a good dry food. So now my boyfriend is even less impressed.

Oh another note we bought Oscar from liver and kidneys today. Christ I never thought of how disgusting it would be to cut and bag it up Eurghhh. We gave Oscar the plate which we were cutting the kidneys on and he didn't seem impressed.. He better bloody eat it lol!!
