    You can start now. You can generally start doing this at around 4 or 5 months.

    Thanks, my vet had advised keeping her on 3 meals a day as I got her at 3.5months but she was underweight but now she's at her ideal so I think I will start just giving her 2 a day!

    Maybe transition gradually over a week or so. Just reduce the mid-day meal a bit every couple of days and transfer the reduced amount equally to the morning and evening meal.
