Hi everyone, now I hang my head at having to ask this but Ben is now 14 weeks old and he is having 4 meals per day when should I start to reduce his meals to 3 its been so long since I have had a pup the old grey matter has gone to sleep! Bill,Zak and Ben.

Yer know Bill...I can't remember that either I'd give the vet a ring and ask for advice, or ask in the pet shop, or depending on what you're feeding him, does it say on the pack when to reduce from 4 meals a day? hopefully someone willcome along and give you a more informative answer than me How is the little fluff ball getting on?

Hi Bill
As long as Ben is putting weight on steadily you should be fine to reduce him to three meals a day now, but obviously still spreading the recommended amount over the three meals.
The only time you would need to feed him more often than this is if he isn't gaining weight, which would mean that he wasn't digesting the food correctly, and he was disposing of it more quickly. ( in the form of poop.)
Hope this helps. We would love some pics please, bet he's grown loads already.
