Question Raw Food Monsters!

OMG my boys eat their raw food up in seconds...literally. They LOVE it. Which makes me super happy.

My question is how many times a day do you feed your babes?

I feed them at 7.30am, 1.30pm and 6.30pm. They sometimes act like I haven't fed them enough. Does that seem reasonable? They eat .5 oz eat time (sometimes it might be .6/.7oz depending on who is grabbing their food for them).

At this age I would be feeding as much as they want at least 4 times a day. I would definitely add a late night meal, 6.0pm to 7.30 am is a long time for a Toy breed puppy to be without food, there is a risk of them developing hypoglycemia. Little and often is best with tiny pups.

Archie feeds twice a day at 3% of his bodyweight. So around 53g per meal per day.
He was on 4 meals a day until 4 months old, changed to 3 at 6 months, then 2 meals at 7 months old.
It doesn't seem like much compared to kibble but raw contains a lot more. Yes Archie still acts like he hasn't been fed for days. But I give him treats throughout the day also
