duchiapple: How many time a day does an English bulldog need to eat?
My daughter owns an English bulldog about 30 pounds but she only feeds her once a day and the dog is kind of skinny. My question is how much should a breed like this be fed and why is her veternanrian saying once a day if not enough?

since the vet sees the dog i would have to agree with them.
i always fed what the food recommended but split it into two feedings.

Hi! Hope this helps.
Recommended daily amount: 11/2 to 2 cups of a high-quality dog food daily, divided into two meals.
How much your adult dog eats depends on his size, age, build, metabolism, and activity level. Dogs are individuals, just like people, and they don’t all need the same amount of food. It almost goes without saying that a highly active dog will need more than a couch potato dog. The quality of dog food you buy also makes a difference–the better the dog food, the further it will go toward nourishing your dog and the less of it you’ll need to shake into your dog’s bowl.

I have a 7 year old adult, 50 lb., female Bulldog and I’ve been feeding her twice per day since she was 6 months old. The amount that is fed would depend on the quality of the kibble itself. In general, the better the quality, the less kibble that needs to be fed because most of the junk food is just fillers anyway. (I feed Merrick Senior to our girl and she gets 3/4 cup twice per day)

Yea they usually need at least 2 times a day. When you feed it does it basically attack its food like it hasn’t been fed in days? Then it needs to be fed more often. My friend has one and he feeds it 3 times a day and its healthy looking not skinny or fat just healthy.

Half a cup of food 3 times a day….morning, afternoon, and night. I however like to mix up his variety and give him one serving of wet dog food a day. The wet food also helps regulate his digestive system by “lubricating” his tract.

feed him more than once a day! hes probably starving! i would feed him 3-4 times a day and always leave water out. i had one for a few days and i just left the food out all day lol
