I had a mini Schnauzer for many years. I fed him improperly for the first few years and, unfortunately, he developed diabetes. My vet recommended that I feed him twice daily, dividing the daily portion of food into halves. Be cautious not to overfeed a Schnauzer or feed the wrong (people) foods. Diabetes (and complicatios from it - including blindness) can be common in the breed if the dog is not fed properly or exercised regularly. Enjoy your schnauzer. It's a great breed.
