    Default Poopy Quantity!

    Keep in mind, Baxter is only 9 pounds. I can still carry him with one arm easily. His belly area is about the size of a softball at the most.

    Today Baxter had *maybe* two measures cups of food.

    Today Baxter crapped TEN TIMES. Each time a pile about the size a little bigger than a golf ball ... or the size of a Tangerine.

    He was fed twice today. I just don't know where he's getting it from. Is this volume of poop normal? Try to picture ten piles of poop the size of a tangerine.

    Oh. I forgot. This doesn't include the FIVE poop piles in his crate from overnight.

    Potty training would be easier if this were two poops a day.

    What are you feeding him? What goes in comes out too...and if there's a lot of poo, the food is not very good or may not agree with him.

    Puppies tend to poo a lot. A real lot. Their little metabolisms are like in overdrive the first few months of their life so a lot of poo is to be expected. The quality of the food you give 'em makes a huge difference to. If the food had a lot of "filler" then less gets absorbed by the body and you end up with more waste. What food do you give your dog? Is the poo solid? Has he had a fecal test lately?

    If my dog doesn't doesnt go to heaven then neither am I.

    Agree puppies do pee and poo a lot ,also if they are overfeed they can have runny poos , again the food quality you feed also plays important role -to their digestive system
    What i noticed when i was experimenting with different feeds is not only quantity,quality but the size difference in their poo-based on my girls -the better the food the smaller the poo ;-)

    When I was feeding Brutus Solid Gold as a puppy I noticed he was pooping alot and his poop wasnt too formed it was kinda soft. As soon as we switched to a better quality food Fromm within 3-4 weeks he was pooping less! Within a month he only pooped 2-3 x a day What are you currently feeding him?

    I think that's a lot of poo! Sounds like 2 cups going in and 4 cups coming out- just doesn't sound right. Are they firm or soft?

    I feed him nature's logic. Which is one of the top five recommended on the site, and reading the label, it's 100% all-natural whole food based. It's the best I could possibly think of. I just think he's very little. 2 full cups maybe is too much? I don't know. And his poop is not completely solid. But it never has been. On any food.

    How old? I still only give my 6 mo about 1 1/2 cups of puppy food per day, plus other stuff (apples, yogurt, carrots...). She's 35 lbs!

    I would maybe first try and cut back a little on the food. Is that two cups per meal, or two cups total??

    Is that a PUPPY FOOD?????? If not, that could be your problem right there.

    Is that 2 full cups at one feeding? If so try cutting back to 1 cup each feeding... Also like Bruce mentioned if its puppy food that could be the issue along with too much food! When we fed Brutus 2 cups am 2 cups pm of Fromm he had soft poo so we cut back and boom it was good!

    I am the queen of too much puppy poop!! When Bogey first came to us ( 8 weeks old, 10 lbs) I immediately took him off Eukanuba puppy( slow wean of course) and tried Fromms puppy. That's when all my threads started, as I complained vigorously that he was having 8,10, 12 poops a day. Long story short it took MONTHS to find the right food for his tummy and it wasn't Fromms. He is now on Earthborne Meadowfeast and has 2 poops a day ( he is now 11 months old) and the poop is nice and firm. Whatever changes you do, do them slowly. That amount of poop is abnormal and it's either too much food, or not a tolerant food to him. It's really trial and error. Patience. It does get better!!
