Hello again

I have worked out an answer for you ...

1. This is a very short answer I know but it 100% covers your question. If Bailey is an adult dog of ten years of age and in good health then feeding him twice a day should be just fine. I have a number of dogs myself and that is my usual feeding regime ...

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.

Regards,

Dr Scott

Please be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
