    Default Normal?

    Hello Im so thankful for this site is has helped me so much. I do have a question I have a female bully 4 yrs old Ive had her since she was 11 wks old. As long as I can remember she has only ever pooped once a day, but recently she is only going every other day and I have to make her go to the grass. You can tell she is holding it but she refuses to go. I have been feeding her Fromms chicken a la veg for about 6 months because she did do this back in January when I had her on Royal Canine. Two times as of the last couple of months she is walked and then half hour later she poops in the house. Any suggestions on what I should do to help her out!!! Thanks so much
    My Princess!

    Well it's not normal ,but they do sometimes don't like going in the grass, for what ever reason. A couple of mine don't like wet grass and we just keep telling them to go potty and pointing at the grass and eventually they will go. So just keep working with her and hopefully she will get back to her normal routine.

    maby a little extra fiber such as canned pumpkin or some apple or carrot slices. I would check with my vet who knows her best to see what they might say - just for piece of mind.

    Thank you so much she is my life and soul I am pretty fond of her. I feed about 1 1/2 c dry fromms and I make a mixture of ground pork and sweet potatos freeze it then give her about 2 tbsp in her dry kibble. She also gets a few sprinkles of whole bran for extra fiber and I always have a bag of apple slices handy. I used to feed more but she puts the weight on so quickly she had to lose 10 lbs per her vet. She has hip dysplaysia so I have to keep her weight in check constantly. Her weight is 44 lbs and its right where her vet wants her.

    Maybe something frightened her or bit her last time she was in the grass?

    I was going to suggest canned pumpkin, not the pie filling, (a tblsp) or so in each serving of kibble.

    Yes..you can use the pumpkin everyday until she is normal again...then I would taper off to couple times a week..then stop unless needed.. I hope she gets over this quickly!

    Hi Candi, the canned pumpkin ought to help her out. My boy Tate will sometimes skip a day of going #2 as well but when I give him the pumpkin, that will do the trick. Also, make sure she's drinking water regularly b/c even tho she's getting fiber, if she's not taking in sufficient water, she can get constipated. Good luck!
