Just wondering how often your dogs poop per day?
Diesel's just recovering from HGE & so his system was pretty empty. Took him 48hrs to have his first poop, 2nd one was 18hrs later, 3rd one is yet to come & it's been 18hrs since the last one.
Before he got sick he'd have about 4 a day, not sure if the G.I. issue changed this or if it'll just take a few more days to get him back to normal poop mode & no idea if 4 a day was normal or excessive.
So just curious about how regular your guys are daily.
Mine both poop twice a day unless they have a stomach upset.
Jasper was back to normal 48 hours after he had finished his antibiotics.
Both of my girls poop twice a day, like clockwork.
Moka goes in the morning before breakfast and in the afternoon before dinner.
Java goes in the morning after breakfast and in the afternoon after dinner.
4 a day seems like a lot to me...but that's probably because my girls only go twice.
Hmmm. So far 2 for 2. I always thought 4 seemed like alot.
He would poop first thing before breakfast, about an hour after breakfast, sometimes after lunch, about an hour after dinner & finally before bed. So it was always a minimum of 2, up to 4 times a day. Food total is 4 cups a day, he's almost 8 months & I have yet to curb mealtime to just twice a day. Maybe it's based on feeding times? I had planned on starting the gradual switch for his kibble from puppy to adult this week, but may wait until his G.I. settles. Once switched I was going to get him used to just the twice a day feeding.
Hopefully enough people reply so I can work out an average!
Depends on the dog and how often you feed. Some (Mitzi) once a day, others up to three times a day for others.
Mine are twice a day also, In the morning, and after supper.
Twice a day? I am not there during the day so I just assume MIL lets them out to go. But there are days that Fanny doens't. Without fail, she does every evening. When we got to the park, I let her out of the car, she squats and pees then finds a good spot to poop. Normally by the Frisbee golf tee...................
Usually twice a day. They are fed on a pretty strict regimen due to Diesel's diabetes - and their diet does not vary - so everything else works like clockwork as well.
Well - that is if it's not raining - then all bets are off as they will hold it for a long time rather than get their little tootsies wet.
Sharon, Blaise and Diesel.
Usually twice a day. Sometimes only once.
Aila and Gin are pretty regular with twice a day (morning before breakfast / evening before dinner). However, up until Aila was about 6 months old, she went constantly - meaning at least 4-5 times daily. I have never seen so much poop come out of such a little body - at 6 months, she only weighed about 45 lbs.
