Bloat is when the stomach (or bowel in my Piper's case) actually flips or twists. It is a really serious condition common in barrel chested dogs. It can cause death in a matter of hours. I believe there is a thread here about it. I will see if I can find it an bump it for you. Our vet recommended a...

I think it's more the ingredients you want to be looking at. There are some good, not too expensive, kibbles you can get. Kirkland is one brand that people seem to like, as is Canidea. It's also good to keep in mind that you'll need to feed less of a higher quality food, so that you won't be going ...

reddog, may I suggest you get in the habit of feeding at least twice a day with exercise before meal? This way you will run less of a risk of bloat. Having been through bowel torsion with one of mine, let me tell you, it is something you never want to go through. :thumbsup: bloat? whats that... wel...

If you have a farm/ranch store near you they often sell decent food for sporting dogs (like hunting dogs). I get something called Enhance something or other (sporting dog) for my neighbors who currently can't afford to feed themselves let alone their dogs. It costs $19 for 50lbs and is actually pre...

In my experience (having fed everything from Science Diet to premiums to raw) the food has very little to do with the number of defecations unless you are feeding raw... but the food will change the quality of defecations. Even being fed raw, I think it's also just the individual dog. Basil went fr...

By products are actually not bad. How many pounds is that bag you're buying? It may equal out to be around the same price as a larger bag of decent dog food. If you have a feed store or locally owned pet store near you, they may carry Diamond, which is not too expensive at all. It's not gourmet, bu...

I would change what you are feeding your dog. That explains the bad gas. The food most likely has by-products. Def NOT healthy! If you want a cheap dog food I'd suggest getting it from walmart rather than the dollar store. I would not feed my dogs food from either place though. Go to your local pet...

I think it depends on the food...mine poop once to twice a day, very small hard poops. My friends dog, who eats crap food I must add, poops all day long! I could be wrong but that's how I see it. Puppy pads are worthless, she's too big for them anyway. I would suggest crate training her in the hous...

Once I thought she might be expressng her glands but i looked and didn't see anything but god it...

if a dog eats in the morning, how many times shold poop?

I feed my dog at 8-9am every morning and take her for a walk, normally within 20 mins she has pooped. today I feed her this morning and she pooped once in her pen and then I went off, when i got home i...
