    Should I switch puppy to 2 meals?

    Hi, puppy gets 3 meals right now. He is 12 weeks. But all in a sudden he does not finish his food anymore, he finishes it after we go walkies.

    The vet suggested to try to feed twice. Is that okey for 12 weeks? I read somewhere that it is okey and somewhere that it is not okey, so I need expert help.

    Normally he'd be fed 3 times at this age. If he's eating less, I would just reduce the amount of food and still feed 3 times a day. I would then keep an eye on his weight to make sure he didn't lose weight (assuming he doesn't need to lose any).
