    Default8 week old and poop

    Okay, from what I can remember with Baxter my current three year old he was a pooping machine and went 5 to 6 times a day.
    Mr. Mason on the other hand has been with us for 48 hours and is only pooping twice a day.

    I'm thinking maybe because he is so small at only 8 weeks old. Baxter was 10 weeks when he arrived.
    Mason is eating 3 times a day at 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup each feeding. I fill his bowl with 1 cup each feeding and when he's done I measure it to see how much he ate.

    Do you think this is okay for an 8 week old?
    I kinda think as each day goes by and he eats more he will go more.

    Well Milly is 12 weeks old this week. She's a poop machine alright!! We've changed her food because the vet thinks that this is why she's been pooping so much. We counted 8 from 7pm - 7am one day... unbelievable!

    When we first got her though it wasn't so bad. Give it two weeks and you'll find out that her bowel has woken up and then there's no stopping it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Our 8-week-old is pooping 3 to 4 times a day, but I'd imagine it depends on the dog what is normal.

    after a week on Milly's new food she's gone from pooping 7 times a day to about 4. I have to admit I'm pretty stoked that I'm picking up only half of the smellies that I was before.....
