I would feed a 4 month old 2x a day. I had no choice because I work so I would feed 1 1/2 cups in the AM and PM. Also, you can feed an all lifestage food which is fine for both puppy and adult. What are you feeding now?

i'm feeding him Kirkland brand dried dog food because the other dogs in my house eat it. But today I just picked up a 35lb bag of canidae all life stages grain-free that i'll transition them over to slowly. Any idea how soon I can transition them without them getting diarrhea?

I feed my pups 3x a day until they reach 6-7 months, then go to 2x a day like my adults, the adult food i dont start until a year but I have heard different oppinions on this ranging from 6 months to 2 years so not exactly sure if there is a right or wrong here. although our male we had to start him on adult food sooner I think around 8-9 months as he as growing to fast and the vet recommended putting him on adult formula.
