Hi All, Louie is 9 weeks old. We've had him 1 week. Is it normal for a puppy to poop 4-5 times a day? Today, he pooped 2x before 8, again at 12, then at 6 and again at 7. That's 5 times! What's the scoop on his poop? :uhoh:

It's perfectly normal for a puppy to poop 4-5 times a day. I assume Louie is having 4 meals a day and puppies poop either before or after meals, sometimes both. The digestive system is also immature and food moves quickly through. Puppies also need more food when they are growing and the food usually has a nigher fat content than adult food. As Louie grows up the poops should get less frequent.

Yes some do poop often as babies. As they get older usually it is less frequently, Jaro does it twice a day most days, and is fed twice a day.

If his poop is firm, it is totally normal. Oscar is 4 months old and usually poops 2-3 times, but when he was at that age, he went more often, especially when had lots of exercises.

When my pup was 9 weeks old I felt like all I ever did was clean up poop! She usually went 4 or 5 times occasionally a 6th time. Now at 5 months she goes 3 times a day. First thing when she wakes up, mid morning about 2-3hrs after breakfast and then again about 1-2hrs after dinner. She gets 2 meals a day.
