help, changing eating habits

for the past 2 weeks, django has changed the way he eats! his old routen was 1/4 kibble in the morning after his walk and 1/4 cup in the evening for dinner. the past 2 weeks he won't eat in the morning. i have been leaving his food out when i leave just in case he's hungry. no interest. he eats after i return around 2:00 and then is whining for more food aorund 5:00. i stopped feeding him once a day since he was diagnosed with addisons and the pred. makes him hungry. don't know if i should just leave all his food out at one time and let him eat it all or as he wants?

Just some thoughts...Has your schedule changed because of your lumileash or something else? Are you rushing off in the AM where you used to be home? Does he eat the food at 2 that you left out in the am? or is it new food? Or could he be getting fewer treats or more late at night so he is not hungry in the am?

You could let Django free feed-- but you will have to be strong if he eats it all and still wants more at 5.

Otherwise If the schedule works for you why not feed him at 2 and then at 5?

no, nothings changed with my scheudule. i'm always out the in the morning. i guess i was concerned because not enough time was left between meals. i think i will free feed but start with half his food and see what happens. and yes, his 2pm meal is his 7am meal. i have actually cut back on his treats, he needs to shed a few ounces!
