    We feed Blue Mountain, Wilderness, with life source (small breed). The chicken suggests two feedings a day. The reat meat suggests one feeding a day. Is there a reason for this. Also,,,,, can we take the daily portion which is 3/4 to 1 1/4 cups and break it down into three feedings??? Dog (Havanese) is “PEANUT” Incidently these dogs are smart as a whip. Peanut is 11 months, and weighs 15 lbs.

    Whether to feed one or two times a day can really depend on the dog, but I would say two is good for most dogs. If your dog doesn’t like to eat at one meal, then your could consider switching to once a day. Feeding three times per day is usually not recommended, because it is good for dogs’ digestive systems to have a break.

    Also, I wouldn’t recommend feeding anything by Blue Buffalo right now. They have been having some quality control/labeling issues lately.
