    DefaultLot of pooping going on, is this normal?

    Sorry for the subject but I figure I everyone deals with this on a daily basis so I need to ask. How many poops would you consider normal? Yesterday Bella Mia went 5 times. That seems like a lot. She isn't over fed, but she goes first thing in the a.m. then after breakfast, after lunch, after dinner, and after a walk. Most are firm, but after exercise it's not as firm. So sorry for the poopy subject but I just am wondering.

    My girls go after each meal (grain free food) - 2x/day. Sometimes they go a third. Activity - walking - can stimulate the system.

    Depends too on what type of food you feed. If there are a lot of fillers/carbs that can produce more stools and larger stools.

    She is on Nutro Ultra, doesn't appear to have too many grains or fillers.

    Aha! When my gang was on Nutro, Frankie pooped 6 times a day. I now have them on Natural Balance Venison/Sweet Potato and they all go twice a day now, sometimes 3.

    You are one of several people who have told me they switched from Nutro to another brand. Very interesting.
