feeding Once vs Twice

hi all, i was wondering is it fine to feed your golden once a day, currently i am feeding her twice 6 am and 6 pm... personally i think its way to long for her to stay 24 hour without feed, but i was told that feeding her once is better.. your advises are highly appreciated,, she is 3 years and half.

best regards

I feed twice daily life-long. (And three times a day for the first six months.)

I also have been feeding 2X a day since she’s about 8 months old.

AM and PM. I also split each of Oscar's meals in two, waiting 10 minutes or so between each portion. When he ate his breakfast or dinner all at once he would tend not to keep it down.

Feeding once a day = elevated bloat risk.

Whoever told you feeding once is better is clueless.

I feed three times a day: one cup in the morning, half a cup at lunchtime, one cup in the evening. My dog is the biggest glutton I have ever seen - he literally inhales his food - and I'm terrified of bloat.

Twice daily is better for digestion than once!

I don’t know where you heard that, but I don’t think it’s correct information. Twice daily is better for digestion and getting nutrients to absorb better. I’m sure if the pup could speak human, he’d rather be fed twice daily as well! Ceege, my pup is the same way with his food! I’d love to know how many cups he’d eat before he’d fill up! It seems like he could finish 1/2 a bag if he could!

My 10 month old gets fed twice a day with a slow feeder bowl, typically 12 hours apart or so, with about 30 minutes of crate rest immediately after as she can get a little rambunctious after a meal. I'm obsessed about making sure she doesn't get bloat. She gets fed according to the instructions on the bag by her age and weight.
