Feeding Times

An average adult miniature schnauzer should eat about ½ cup of high quality dry food twice a day. Feed younger mini schnauzer puppies three or four times daily, but don't leave the food bowl sitting out.

According to this report, the total first-year cost of owning a dog is $1,270 and for a cat it's $1,070.

As you can see, having a pet can cost you over $1,000 in the first year, and well over $500 each additional year.

Depending on the food you buy and sudden medical expenses, the costs could be much higher.

If your dog is drinking excessively (polydipsia) it is possibly because he is losing excess amounts of water for any of a number of reasons.

While a number of diseases result in excess water intake and urine output, the most common of these diseases include kidney failure, diabetes mellitus and Cushing's disease.

In many ways, canned dog food can be superior to kibble.

They typically contain more meat protein than their dry counterparts.

And they're made with fewer carbohydrates, too.

Plus, due to their air-tight packaging, canned dog foods contain no synthetic preservatives.

Feeding adult food will rob your puppy of important nutrients.

Four feedings a day are usually adequate to meet nutritional demands.

Large breeds should be fed unmoistened dry food by 9 or 10 weeks; small dogs by 12 or 13 weeks.

3–6 months: Sometime during this period, decrease feedings from four to three a day.
