Red setters need 2 meals a day, as they can are susceptible to bloat as they has a large chest area,and most large dogs are the same. I am not sure that one meal for dogs is good for most .
I completely agree, Rebecca, I would never feed my dog just one meal a day-in fact I feed her three meals per day as she is a Great Dane mix and bloat is a huge risk in this breed.
I do know several people who say their dogs prefer not to eat breakfast so they are fed just once a day. Strangely in all of these dogs breakfast is the meal they are reluctant to eat-which would tie in with the article’s suggestion of evening being the best time to feed one large meal due to the way the liver functions.
For my part though nothing will convince me to fast my dog-which I’m sure she’ll be very relieved about as she loves her three daily meals!
