    Hi

    Bessie is 9 weeks old today.

    I know you're meant to feed 4 meals a day at this stage but she's not eating the 3rd meal of the day at all and hasn't for most the time she's been with us (a week). I think she might have done the first couple days but not much of it .

    So she's having breakfast at 8ish, lunch at 11.30-12.30 not wanting her 3rd meal that I've offered at 3.30-4, but eats again at 8p.m.

    Is this ok? Shall I just cut down to 3 meals a day as she's not wanting the 4 anyway or should I be worried?

    tia.

    if she doesnt want the 3rd meal then id say thats fine.

    just up the quantities slightly in the other 3 meals so that she is getting the right amount of food.
