Doggy Treat: Bandit’s Beef Casserole

Most dogs eat twice a day. However, this can vary. Puppies are usually fed three times a day— morning, noon, and night—until they are 6 months old. Some adult dogs are fed only once a day, and others have access to a constant supply of food and can eat whenever they are hungry (known as free-feeding). I suggest feeding twice a day. The problem with feeding once a day or free-feeding is that you are not able to monitor what your dog is eating as well. If you feed twice a day, you are less apt to end up with an overweight dog, and because he is eating more often, he is less likely to raid your garbage can out of hunger. I also suggest putting the food bowl down for 20 to 30 minutes and picking it up after that if your dog hasn’t eaten.

Not only does he get put on a schedule, but he is less apt to become a picky eater. If possible, serve food and water to your pets in stainless-steel bowls, which are virtually break-proof, dishwasher safe, and easy to keep clean. I am not a fan of glass or ceramic bowls for this simple reason: Glass and ceramic can chip, get into your pet’s intestines, and cause a big problem. And plastic bowls can release toxins into food and water that sit in them all day.

Remember, too, that fresh water should be made available to your pet 24 hours a day.
