Feeding Your Adult Cat & Dog Once a Day!
The Snake & Goat Story
A snake eats once a month. A goat eats 24/7. If you feed the snake every day for a week, the snake will die. If you don't feed the goat for a week, the goat will die.
My point is that gastrointestinal systems of each species are extremely different. Dogs and cats are closer to the snake, and people are closer to the goat. So people anthropomorphize and feed their cats and dogs too often.
In the past when I had all healthy dogs, I fed them every other day...and they did beautifully. Presently I have three rescues; one of them is not all that healthy yet, so I feed all three dogs once a day; however, when the third one is healthy, I will go to every other day feeding.
Canines/felines in the wild eat once or twice a week. So even if you feed once a day, that is five times a week more often than is natural for a carnivore in the wild. I am not talking about the quantity of food; I am talking about the number of times you feed. Dogs and cats need to feel full, and feeding all their food once a day gives them that feeling...rather than a smaller amount twice a day.
Puppies and kittens are totally different; they get to eat as often as they want and as much as they want, when they want. Let me know the age of your kitten/puppy.
There are a couple of exemptions when it comes to adult dogs and cats, i.e. diabetic or hyperthyroid animals, so be sure to be in touch if you feel you have a dog/cat who is an exception.
Feed in the morning, Not in the evening.
The reasons for feeding in the morning and not feeding in the evening: During the day food is needed for energy. During the night's sleep, the body does all of its major repairing, restoring and healing. These healing processes cannot start until all food is digested. It is critical to feed in the morning.
Carnivores systems were designed to eat much less often than most people feed. We must follow Mother Nature’s design when it comes to feeding.
Canines in the wild, do drink water, because they eat dried-up road kill, as well as fresh kill. However, their main water/fluid consumption should be with their food.
Felines, on the other hand, eat only fresh kill; they do not bury their prey to be eaten later; they just kill again. Cats are very adept at killing; they see it as a sport as well as a source of food. It is also a cat’s job in the wild to kill for others who are not as adept at the sport or for ones that are not able.
So be sure the food you are preparing has sufficient water or broth, rather than the consistency of a meat patty. It is also best to feed chunks of meat the size of what they would bite and tear off of their prey.
Eating less often has to do with the health of your dogs and cats. It is important to take these natural aspects of eating and drinking into consideration.
Feeding carnivores too often is detrimental to their health

We have been given the most precious gifts of dogs and cats. Do not damage them with vaccines, drugs, chemicals, and pet foods/treats. They are our furry children who deserve the best. They must be fed only food fit for human consumption; the meat must be raw, and they must have the proper supplements because even our food fit for human consumption is not up to the standards it was a hundred years ago.
