|I don't understand feeding once a day. I mean, seriously, I don't understand it. I know there are people, I even know some personally, who love their dogs dearly, and feed once a day, but I just can't see it. I don't understand why you'd want to do that.
Until Addy, I've always fed twice a day. I started that way with Addy, but if the timing of her meals was even slightly off, she'd vomit bile because her stomach was too empty. This happens with a lot of small dogs (not all, by any means; most do fine with two meals, and some do fine with one meal), and I'd heard of it from other Crested people. So now she gets three small meals a day--and I no longer have to fuss too much about the exact timing. She's a lot better able to tolerate variations in schedule, she doesn't vomit bile anymore, and she's maintaining a healthy weight and enjoys all three of her meals.
That's what works with Addy. Your mileage may, and probably will, vary.
