Kinda gross but I wanted to know!

How many times a day does your dog poop? We just got a new dog and she poops about 5 to 8 times a day. Is that normal or is it just the new situation maybe?

  • depends on a few things. my older dogs don't poop as much as my puppy, the older ones maybe 3-4 times at the very most the puppy i cant even count how many times she has to go out. also smaller dogs go more often i have noticed and it also depends on the food they eat. A cheaper dog food will process faster and they will poop much more, if you buy the better brands that cost a little more, they have better ingredients so your dog eats less often and poops much less.

  • Once or twice. If it's a puppy probably more, or if it's just a stressed out adult then maybe more but 6 to 8 is NOT normal. Take her to the vet.
