I've got 9 weeks old pup and she pooped 12 times today!
And her stools are soft and runny.
A friend of mine told me to get her a medicine that helps her feces hard.
Would that help and OK for her?
Also, I'm pretty worried about her frequency of pooping..... :(
Thank you in advance!

What are you feeding the puppy? Have you changed her diet without switching foods slowly? Has she been dewormed recently? If the food she is on is not a good quality food that will cause dogs to poop more. If there has been a sudden diet change or she has worms that can cause loose stool. You need to get her in to the vet to be checked for worms. There is a medicine you can get form the vet that helps if they have diarrhea

I would watch for other signs. Throwing up, things like that. The loose stools could be a sign of Parvo, that's how Ace started out when he had it. If she gets worse you may need to take her to a vet.
