Well, my puppy Rocky... Sometimes it can take after 3 hours of eating until he poops. Another thing is that usually over night or early morning he makes really soft poop. It does have form but is very soft. I do take him out after eating but he doesn't seem to even want to go. Just kinda worried because it takes a while and I'm not sure if this is normal or what, and the fact that at times his poop can be really soft. If it helps, I feed him Solid Gold. 3 times a day with measurements according. 1 cup morning and night, half in the middle.

... puppies until 4mos JMO should have open availability to food if its just a pet. Then regiments should start. I feed raw because dry kibble has to much controversy for good reason. .. . The best advice I can give is get frozen biljac feed it 3 times a day and pick a good 26% kibble to keep down all day..

Puppies chew on foreign objects and get them in the intestines.. I've been on several surgeries of just that case.. One bullmastiff had months of poo problems like what you speak and he had 30+ pairs of panies (they had been disappearing for months apparently.. LOL) golf ball pieces, tennis ball in pieces, tooth brush pieces.. and so on hair ties, feminine product cardboard.. LOL that dog had alot inside.. so an xray doesnt hurt besides pups should have frequent exams just for socialization if nothing else. ..


Other than food disagreeing with him/her ... foreign objects is all I can think of, get him xrayed Just in Case.. once they stop eating.. its uphill battle.

How long are you letting him out for? Some dogs just won't poop in the house so if they aren't given enough time outside they will just hold it. It can take up to 25 minutes for Leo to poop outside because he's really shy. Also are you giving him treats or anything that might not agree with him? Or have you thoguht about an allergy to the poop? My dogs have softer poop sometimes if they had a lot of treats or something...

I've fed him solid gold for some time now and this has only come up now. Also for treats, I use the same thing. Taking into account that ill have to change his feeding amount if I'm giving treats that day.

Going good so far! This morning his poops are formed. Still kinda wet but a lot better. Also, he pooped after eating breakfast today. Still keeping an eye though.
