Too Much Poop!

by Kim
(Walla Walla, WA)

I have a 7 year old white miniature schnauzer female. I have lowered her dose of food to 1.5 cups of food per day to bring her weight down.
My problem is she poops all the time. Not diarrea, just poops a lot. How can I stop this?
I take her out before bed, she poops, then in the middle of the night she poops in the house.
Makes me crazy.

dog food vs poop
by: Anonymous

I went to school to be a dog groomer, so I'm NOT a VET but while in school I learned that dogs do not digest corn products it just passes through the system... if corn product (corn meal, whole grain corn, ground corn or anything else corn-related) is one of the first 5 ingredients in your dog's food, you might want to switch to one that has rice instead. hope the info helps. **oh and if a dog eats soft food constantly his/her teeth fall out prematurely.. hard food is a better choice**
BUT check with a vet and see what is the best for YOUR dog.

POOP !!
by: Michele

This is disgusting.. maybe you are feeding her too much !! especially if you say you need to make her lose weight..
My Rebel & Rambo only have 195grams of Nature-diet Chicken Vegetables & Rice each ( the container is 390grams, I divide it between the 2 of them ) and I add a half cup of mixer.. they eat it all up always.. and only toilet when I go a walk the following morning. I feed mine between 3.30 & 4.0.pm every day with no problem as they always ask to go out..I also take them a walk about an hour after they have had their tea, then if they want to go again they can.. Talk to your vet if your problem continues...
