How may times a day does your dog "go"?

Postby drtrider2000 » Sat Jan 05, 2008 6:43 pm

Bella gets between 2 1/2-3 cups of Canidae All Life Stages daily...she has taken a dump 4 times today between 7am and 4:30 PM. The "movements" are firm, and average volume. Is it possible i'm over feeding her, even though she doesn't appear heavy? heres the best pic i could find to show she doesn't appear heavy (at least to me)

my dogs only poop once a day on raw
once or twice a day if on kibble
when I fed Canidae, they did poop more, that is why I stopped feeding it.

Molly goes twice a day. Logan goes 2 to 3 times a day (must be a guy thing lol ) Jake goes 3 or more times a day but he is a puppy. I have heard of member's dogs taking several dumps a day on Canidae. I have never fed Canidae but I notice the recommendations on some bags of dog food are too much.

mine go twice a day but they are on raw, and their poops are milk dud size. when they were on canidae or other kibbles they went more and had more volume to their poop.

Taffy poos once a day, maybe twice if she's out at the park or whatever, but the second time would be 'rabbit turds'...

She pees as many times as you'll let her out, but she poos once a day.

Ginger poops twice a day. And Emma about 5-6 times. MY Mom walks Emma every 3-4 hours and she poops almost every time but they are very small

Kane is on Canidae as well, but he only gets approx 1.5 cups per day (1.25 if he's gotten extra treats during training sessions). He goes 2 times per day, sometimes 3.

ok...so based on this quote, along with all the other coments, look at her pic, does she look heavy for a 12 month old puppy? Should i accept how much she poops? should i feed her less? if she's pooping too much, theoretically, i could feed her less and she wouldn't lose weight, right?

In my opinion, based upon how she looks in this picture

she looks to be in great shape. I would feed as you have been doing.

My dog is now 6 years old, and poops twice a day normally, sometimes once. He is pretty active, but not as active and energetic as he was at your pup's age! Back then, he pooped 4 or sometimes 5 times a day. Perhaps it is level of activity, age, food, or an individual dog thing. If your pup is doing well at that level of feeding, I'd say you are doing the right thing.

she looks like she is at a great size. you may want to consider adding a digestive enyzme to her food if she is pooping a lot and you are not overfeeding her...it will help her body to absorb more nutrients from her food , which will result in less poop. She sure is beautiful!

Vewronica usually gets 1/3 cup canidae in the am with wet canidae & Hill's z/d mixed in.

Dinner is 2/3 C canidae & wet food mixed in.

She usually has a BM 2 to 3 times per day; rarely 4 times. But she looks good & otherwise the food agrees with her more than anything else has so...what's a little extra poop?
