    Default Can poop be too hard?

    Hey guys! I am wondering if Uni's poop is too firm. It looks like rabbit pellets. She doesn't seem to strain too much when going. My question is how do I tell if it's too hard?
    In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.

    If it doesn't come out its too hard....when the food is right and hig quality, poo, as in waste, is very small and can be pellet like.

    I have no answer but I'm glad you asked the question ... I've been watching my new foster worried she is having trouble with her poo so I'm interested in the answers you get.

    If it looks dry or whitish, its too hard, and yes if it doesn't come out and they strain

    Smaller quantity = firm poop, larger quantity = softer poop

    sarah has small poop to sometimes. as long as they are not straining its probably ok. you can always get more water in the diet to help

    is so important just like people. . More fiber (pumpkin) and water. It should look like lol

    Its hard to describe. .. I was always told should be well formed (round) consistent in firmness and long...

    When Bea's poo gets a bit too dry or pellet like, I just add more water to the "gravy" they get. I wish Bo's doodie was as wonderful as Bea's. Everyday when I am picking it up, I think, "This has to be the BEST DOG DOO EVER!" I really think that. Every. Day. Last week, Bo had one of these INCREDIBLE CRAPS and I thought I was going to shoot over the moon.

    Do you think I need to get a new hobby or something? Like take up knitting maybe or ?
