    DefaultRaw pooping question

    That sounded very funny... Well don't know how to ask any other way. How often should they poop? I have been feeding raw for over a month. He is doing very well on it. He is now only pooping 1 x a day and sometime even skips a day. Is that normal????

    Just like humans, dogs are all different (in terms of when and how often they go). I'm not a Vet but I am a nurse. We follow a few simple rules when it comes to bowel movement...

    Has it been 3 or more days since your dog eliminated?
    Is your dog bloated?
    Is your dog's abdomen distended (harm and firm)?
    Is your dog's stool hard and pebble like? (A sign of constipation issues). Or is it mucus like? (A sign of a lower blockage).
    Does your dog have poor appetite? Does he/she throw up when he/she eats?
    If the answer to any of these are "Yes" then I would have your pup check out by a Vet.

    Like I said, I'm not a Vet but humans and other species are not THAT different. These are some of the things I look at in my patients. If you're unsure, you can't go wrong with call your Vet and asking him/she. Hope this helps.

    Raw digests different and usually is used up almost 100% in the dogs system. 1X a day is sufficient unless the dog is getting veggies and lots of bone.

    I have 3 dogs that are raw fed and the usual routine for my raw fed dogs is to poop 1 - 2 times daily. I don't usually get any of them pooping any less than at least once daily.

    I have fed raw for years. Dogs eat twice a day. I find that they poop twice a day as well. However many times they eat a day is how may times they poop a day. Any days they are given extra snacks, they next day will be more poops. At least that's how it works for us!
